I got lost!

This was my plan. EASY isn't it?! Well... travels, life and mistakes teach you the hard lesson: things don't always go according to plans! learn it fast and you'll never be disappointed again...!

The adventure is out there!

How to plan a trip

Decide where to go and when is kind of easy matter but how about planning the entire trip? Well, I do know that I'm the over-planning type of traveler, but at the end in a right manner! I cannot start a trip without knowing what to see and do, but I can cope well with…
