A Borrowed Backpack is a blog comprising of snippets from the bit of life I consider to be a “dream-life”. It is named so because for one of my initial adventure-trips, I had to borrow the backpack from a friend.  I now, of course, have one of my own :D :D , but the first one is always special!

I’ll keep packing stories and experiences in my life’s backpack and try and share the awesome ones here.

If you have something to talk about, send a love/hate mail, or just generally say hi! , please feel free to do so.

A word about the photographs on the blog. You might look at them and think that it could, for sure, be better! If you do, you are right. I use a point and shoot camera to take pictures, hence the quality is not same as a DSLR. :D
Also, if you wish to use any photograph for any purpose, please write to me before you do.

Love and light to all.

  3. Hey! When I started travelling, I borrowed a friend’s backpack too. In fact, I borrowed it so often, that she gave it to me, and said that she would borrow it when she needs it!

    Great blog; happy travels!

    • Hahahahahahaa!! Wonderful friend you have!
      Thank you so much Sosha. :D :D
      Mine gave up on the backpack as I didn’t return it to him for quite some time after returning from the trip. I later sheepishly called him so that the backpack sits with its rightful owner. :D

    Really enjoyed your blog , need a suggestion from your side.
    I m planning to go kasol within this month end from 29 dec till 2 jan ( as i got some time from my office).

    Please suggest me , that is it gud to go there at this time ??
    waiting for your suggestions.

    • Hi Alok,
      Kasol receives tourists throughout the year, but in highly varied numbers. A lot many cafes and eateries are closed due to low influx of tourists as they migrate temporarily to Pushkar, Goa and Gokarna. The Himalayan region, as you would know, is extremely cold during the dates you have chosen to visit Kasol in.
      You can also visit Manikaran, which is close by Kasol.
      Thanks for your kind words.

    • Wow! You’ve been to the best places already, man!
