“Traveling; it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller”. –Ibn Battuta


I am Brinda Rao, a part-time healthcare professional and a stay-at-home mom, based out of Bangalore, who loves not just to travel but also to explore the culture and values of the places I visit. Observing and understanding the exotic cultural diversity of my destinations helps me to relate more closely with my very own Indian and Hindu culture. This blog is a platform for me to share my travel experiences with my readers. It is said that wherever you go, some part of it remains with you forever. I want to share this ‘part’ with my readers and bring those distant places and wonderful experiences to them. 

Cooking is another of my hobbies which initially was a chore to me but as time passed by, I realised the importance of healthy and heirloom recipes in our everyday cooking. Our country is blessed with the traditional wisdom of cooking techniques and practises, which not only nourish the body but also heal it when it is in distress. There are countless such recipes waiting to be explored. By virtue of my diverse family, I have had the lucky opportunity to understand and learn the cuisines of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamilnadu, Gujarat and to some extent Goa as well.  I wish to document these wonderful recipes and many many more which I learn along the way, for me and my family as well as for my readers 🙂
