What A Memorable Experience With My Kids At Adventure n Coorg!

Coorg is one of the beautiful locations situated in Western Ghats of Karnataka. I, Aarushi Singhaniya, a nature lover who loves to travel anywhere is here with some charming reminiscences! Being attached so closely with my children, I do not wish to leave them at home, when I am enjoying out somewhere in the woods or any destination for that matter. My kids are my life, and I cannot spend any happy moments without them. Here I am to share my recent trip in Coorg where I have been to with my kids – time of adventure indeed.

Well, it was a sudden plan made by my husband and his friends. Initially it was a family trip, later it turned out to be an adventurous one. Coorg was a heaven for me! I actually was bored of Hyderabad, and wanted to discover natural paradise. The first day spent at Coorg was lovely; I thoroughly enjoyed relaxing amidst the cool lush greenery. However, we planned our next few days for adventure to educate our kids and make them enjoy something thrilling.

Camping and trekking- best experience!

Trekking, camping and wildlife were on our things to do in Coorg list. I was keen of the safety, as there were five kids with us (two mine, and three friend’s). We started with trekking; there are many places in Coorg which are ideal for trekking.

We chose one day trekking as we had children with us. While we were browsing for trekking, we found many options. One was trekking in South Coorg, which charged only 3000 INR and took us for a long walk in the green valleys. Other was a trek to highest peak in Kakkabbe, and it charged 11000 INR which was expensive for us keeping in mind the kid’s factor.

Our next goal was camping. We came across two options which charged 1500 and 1750 INR respectively. We chose the second one which was at Srimangala. It was a complete one day and one night camping which included meals, camping, bonfire, and few sports. My kids enjoyed the new experience.

Close to wildlife

Lastly, we fixed our day for wildlife safari. It was in Rajiv Gandhi National Park, what a marvellous place! All of us had a great time amidst the jungle area with different species of animals and birds all around. I would never forget my trip in Coorg, getting close to nature was a great decision. I recommend all my fellow readers to experience these things when in Coorg. Do share your experiences too!

A Trip from Secunderabad to Bhubaneswar

Being the lady of the house and having the responsibility of two young kids on my shoulders I rarely get time to sit back and relax. This is the reason I love travelling with my family and planning out family vacations every now and then I get to squeeze out time from my hectic lifestyle. Although I love to take care of my family but I eagerly wait for opportunities to sneak out to some new destinations with them. Through this post I would like to share my train travel experience from Secunderabad to Bhubaneswar.

With development of the tourism sector there are a wide range of travel options available in hand. But I prefer budget travel via the traditional railway services over airways or roadways. There are a number of trains from Hyderabad to Bhubaneswar. I checked the train schedule and made reservations for us on the Konark express (11019) as it best suited our plans. This train originates from Begampet at 7:02 am and reaches its destination at Bhubaneswar at 4:25 am the next day. The total journey time is 21 hours and 23 minutes.

There are a number of other express trains from Hyderabad to Bhubaneswar namely, Shatabdi, Duronto and Rajdhani etc. as many as 37 trains run weekly between the two stations. So there will be no difficulties in getting a train on any day and at any preferred time. the first train that departing from Hyderabad at 5:30 am is the Secunderabad Junction Shalimar Ac express (12774). The last train departing from Hyderabad railway station is the Hyderabad Deccan Shalimar Special (07128) that leaves the station at 9:50 pm.

We boarded the Konark express from the Secunderabad junction (SC) and it dropped us at the Bhubaneswar (BBS) railway station in less than a day’s time. my kids have great fascination for train travel as they get to peep out of the window and have glimpses of the scenic beauty on the way. I feel it’s a great way to hang around with our family. We reached the hotel and we were all excited about the future days we are going to spend at Bhubaneswar.
