A new trip... With a new phone!

I am relaxing in an easy chair, watching the rains lash and the waves crash against the shore. Yes, I am on another trip, this time to South India,  and as I type this, at Tarangambadi or Tranquebar. I am staying at the Neemrana property, Bungalow on the beach, and have with me for company,  Samhith of course, and the newest member of my gadget family - a Sony Xperia Z3!

The phone is with me for trial, and is proving surprisingly useful! The heavy rains have forced me to keep my camera inside and rely on the Xperia and in the process test its waterproof quality ;-)

We have been having fun trying out the phone and the many features of its camera, such as the sound pics and the panorama.

This was meant to be a long post, with my complete first impressions of the phone, but samhith has taken over my tab and I am using the phone to type this out, so this is the best I can do for my first attempt. I shall, therefore post a few of the photos clicked with the phone, and leave you to draw your own conclusions,  for now!

I shall be posting more photos regularly on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, so,  for regular updates, please follow me on :

  2. Have nice trip. Neemrana Bungalow on the beach is a nice place but a bit expensive for indians... Are they serving Indian food now? Last year when we went, they only had danish food items which we didn't recognize...

The Havelis of Bikaner - A Photo Post

The lanes are narrow , twisting and turning amidst buildings old and new. Crumbling old structures with intricate workmanship stand side by side with art deco buildings, and more modern constructions, which follow no particular style. Autos, bicycles, motorcycles and vans rush past, blowing their horns as loudly as possible, while cows saunter past peacefully, completely unaffected by the noise. In the midst of all this chaos, children play by the side, and women go about their chores, as we explore these by-lanes of Bikaner, and its beautiful Havelis. Facade of one of the Rampuria Havelis

Kabini Part 2 - A Boat Ride

The river Kabini is the heart of the Nagarhole National park, and a boat ride on the river is an integral part of the stay at the Kabini River Lodge. The incessant, unseasonal rainfall had marked our stay so far, and heading to the jetty for our boat ride on our second evening at the lodge, we kept our fingers crossed, hoping for clear skies.  The Jetty... at the Kabini River Lodge

Kabini Part 3 - After the Rains

Visiting Kabini in peak summer, we hadn’t bargained for the rains, which dominated our three days at the Lodge. While animal sightings were understandably lesser than usual, seeing the forest in the rain was an interesting experience in its own way. However, as we headed back into the forest for our second and third safaris, we hoped the rains would let up, and allow us to see more animals! Winding jungle paths
