Stepping stones to the Great Barrier Reef with SkyScanner!!!

The Great Barrier Reef - Australia.

Marine life is something that fascinates me time and tide again.If this time I stand lucky with skyscanner, I would love to go around Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia. The stretch cover of the reef is over and around 2000 kms for a round trip is a pleasant idea to explore marine life.

The colourful rainbow patterns of the reef forms thrill me each time I hear from anyone visiting them and narrating their experiences. There is whole plan layout which I have decided to have at Great Barrier Reef.

Firstly, I would go around the white sands of the WhiteHaven beach located at Whitsunday Island. From there heading to diving experiences in the reef's smooth seas, drop offs, and in the underwater tunnels near the Cairns. I would love to snorkel and dive around with the flippers and wetsuits.

Next would experience sailing with the wind from Douglas Port to the Low Isles that was discovered by the Captain Cook. There I would stop by for resort relaxation and take some sailing experiences.

From there, I would head for Rain forests. There I would go around spotting wildlife and the Bloomfield falls. I will experience the cruising down the Daintree river and visiting the Mossman Gorge. Heading to tropical and subtropical rainforests on Eungella Island located in mist-mountains would be on my itinerary. When in the nature, would take down the experience of talking with the wildlife in the Whitsunday National Park and spot the prominent species of the park.

Taking the trip forward, the important on list are the adventure sports. The Great Barrier Reef offers such great opportunities at Day Dream Island such as those of parasailing, bushwalking, boating, snorkelling, sea-kayaking, hot air balloon ride, etc. So much on the list on this trip would enrich me with the best lifetime experiences.

The planning of the trip through skycanner makes it more easy and a worthwhile experience helping in finding out the best rates for flights, accommodation, and travelling around locally.

The Travel expenses :

Flight charges : INR 65000

Accommodation Charges : INR 10000

And the trip is all set!! Thankyou SkyScanner.

Zest UP! and say Cheers!

The supreme joys of life are in the creative life when it is filled with the various adventurous affairs. The true happiness comes with facing challenges and coming out to face the odds, and leading to new experiences.

Five of those few things that add zest to my life are :

1. Good Food :  The long working sessions in the kitchen is something that keeps me alive and zests me up everyday to hone my culinary skills. I love to experiment with the food ingredients and items and prepare delicious dishes. Trying out several designs and various serving patterns on the dining table get me more exciting. Good food is what satisfies my appetite and fills me with passion and zeal after every meal.

2. Workout sessions in the gym : Gym is my second favourite hideout after kitchen. It has its own reasons to be on second spot after cooking, since the extra calories can be burnt out even if the food on the table was highly craving and unavoidable. Workout sessions at the gym energize me and keep me active throughout the day. It makes me feel fresh and enables me to handle all of the tasks with ease. It helps me break the monotony everyday and enables me to set new standards and bars for my health and life.

3. Travelling : The planning of the adventure trips and exploring out the wildlife and nature during my travel is something that adds to the fervour and enthusiasm. They add to my energy levels and keep me fresh till the next expedition. The packing and unpacking has its own charm with the travelling. Travelling helps me unravel the mysteries of places in and out of the books, something in real, far away from the virtual land.

4. Reading : For the ones who love the art of reading and know what it is to be drenched into reading upto the last page of the books, there is nothing else that boosts up the levels of zest. It gives a whole new life while unlocking every page of the book. The various reading interests keep me alive and joyful throughout this beautiful journey of my day-to-day life.

5. Studying the sky : This is something that has a new excitement for me each day. The high beautiful sky daily has different story narrated by it with the formation of various clouds and the patterns it assumes. The movement of clouds, the different constellations, various shades, etc offer a lot to me that always keeps my level of zests of life. The sunrise skies, sunset patterns, the various shapes the sky assumes in the night, the several seasons' cycles give huge amount of excitement to the sky examiners.

Nothing comes easy in life. Life is all about zest. Zest is the secret of happiness.

BLACK is Class!


Black is true,
entwines me in the love,
in the darkness,
that is so profound,
shields me from the unknown,
friendly and flattering,
the comfort zone,
something that is my own.

The love that I have come to inherit for the colour Black is quite famous among the people who have known me closely. It is so profound that on my birthdays and special occasions I m gifted something black. To add to my own happiness, I treat myself on my special occasions, I go around shopping and get back with something that is BLACK!!!

I already possess a lot that is black, but never the less the list is never ending. And, every now and then, there are add-ons on the list. Amongst the many lists, I always maintain a special list that would be comprising that would be all black.

Following is a list of 5 things that have a mention here.

1. Black Wardrobe : 
I am a girl, and what could be my top most priority. A special black wardrobe in my personal room at my home, that would be filled with each and everything black inside it and whose proud owner would be "I, me aur main". Yes, I wish this to be so very true on my wishlist.

2. Black Audi Q5 : 
Yes, my dream car. I would soon be gifted by my father when I fulfill the promise I made to him, and I am hopefully on the way to achieve the target. Audi, black audi, here you come soon in my garrage!

3. Black IPAD : 

Now that I m in possession of white ipad gifted by my brother, I wish had he given me a black, I would not have had this on my wishlist to have a black ipad. I m eagerly waiting for the Apple team to launch a new version of it, so that I can get a new one. Whoa! 

4. Black luxurious watch : 
A crazy person for watches that I am, I have WATCH marked upon the list permanently. Hence, my wardrobe awaits another watch, a luxurious priced possession. I usually gift myself a watch on every birthday, a lovely way to be in possession of watches, would still love to add many more! 

5. Black roses : 
This might sound unusual to many. But I love to collect black roses, and dry it out and preserve it with me! 
They have a beauty and a different story associated with each petal of the flower!

Black is class. Black is Jazzy. Black adds zest to life. Black peps up life. Black brings in life. Black is synonymous to bliss. Black is eternal. Black is mesmerizing. Black is divine. Black is soothing. Black is love. Black is beautiful. Black is BLACK!!!
