Chronicle of My Travels

This blog demystifies cities by unraveling their local culture, cuisine and people, through the travel stories that would keep you wanting to know more about the place, and experience it first hand.  From handy tips to what to eat to what to see to where to stay…Lush White sands is an effort to make the sojourns of our travel tribe as smooth as it gets!

An HR by profession and a traveler by passion, I am a foodie, shopaholic and a travel junkie. Travelling to new places, meeting new people, becoming one among them and then exploring the locale as a local gives me happiness like nothing else. Travel to me is what meditation is to a sage; path of inner peace, perspective, and growth. When not juggling between the 9 to 5 chaos and exploring new places, you will find me sharing my travel stories on this blog!
