  1. Morachi Chincholi – a rural tourism place near Pune , where peacocks rule ! The name means the abode of the peacoks and four college students converted it into a rural tourism destination with bullock cart rides, rustic food , open air dining and nature !

    I have participated and won books earlier..umm, not comfortable sharing in public all id’s at one time !

  2. Sounds like a great adventure the author went on.

    I remember doing my own European adventure of 5 weeks and 7 countries… it was fun!

    More fun was my 45 day travel crisscrossing 25,000 km of India on a show string budget of less than $1000.

    Should have been extra fun for the author being a woman traveler.

    Looking forward to reading this book.

  3. I visited Tioman islands in Malaysia many years ago and found it a well-kept secret. Relatively fewer people than all the usual tourist spots, clear turquoise water and snorkelling – what more could a girl ask for?

  4. Khajjiar, its a hill station in Himachal. Amazingly beautiful with Deonar trees and picturesque surroundings..

  5. Ladghar, it is a beautiful not so commonly known beach in Konkan, about 10kms from Dapoli. It is still a serene, calm beach with not much of the so called water sports existing over there. There is a small Dutt mandir on a hillock overlooking the sea which is an ideal spot for morning bird watching and to enjoy the morning peace. It is a red sand beach and also called as Tamas teerth.

  6. There is a secret lake somewhere in Hyderabad, hidden behind boulders right next to a very busy road.. I go there to sit on rocks and count the waves made by the diving Kingfishers 🙂 No I am not telling exact location it is my little secret and shall remain so…

  7. Hallstatt in Austria. Its a UNESCO world heritage site where people land up in buses during the day and by evening its almost like a dead town. It’s got the oldest salt mine in the world (which is still in working condition). Its one of my favorite visited place.

  8. Pitalkhora caves – A group of caves used by Buddhist monks similar to the Ajanta caves and not very far from them. but hitherto, known mainly to historians and archaeologists.

  9. Moyenne island in Seychelles is called ‘Robinson Crusoe island’- I had the honour of meeting the late Mr.Brendon Grimshaw on my birthday in 2012. He bought the island and lived there alone as ‘Robinson Crusoe’ with his ‘Man Friday’ Lafortune till his death in july 2012 with his giant tortoises for company. Today, its a National Park.

  10. My little secret is Troy, Pennsylvania. It’s on the eastern edge of the Appalachian Mountains, a little rural town with B&B’s, camping, swimming, hunting, maple syrup, peace and quiet, and much, much more. It’s a beautiful area with great people. I love it!
