Birthday love is so real!!! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
I'm having the happiest 30th I could have dreamed of, especially after all those nightmares I had about it a few months ago! ☺
My heart is overwhelmed and bursting with gratitude for all the love I’ve received through the many celebrations with my favourite people in the world. The pre-birthday weekend kicked off with a perfect trip to Pawna (thanks insta stories for bailing on me again 🙈😟🙄). I brought in my 30th with the family in Bombay. And today, I flew to Goa with my besties for a whole week of celebrations. I feel so blessed and lucky to be surrounded with so much love and positivity! And of course, You, my Sassy Insta family for the best gift, 10K!! Thank you all ten thousand of you for showering your love! LOVE YOU ALL! 😘😘💕💕

#30before30 - Reliving my 30 best memories from around the world before I turn 30! #1 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is me - happy and hungover, not wanting to grow up but ready to welcome the next decade! I’m soaking in every moment with a lot of gratitude in my heart. .
I’ve throughly enjoyed reliving my 30 memories before 30 while sharing them with you. Hope you did too! Which of these have you added to your bucket list?

Of course the only way I would spend the last weekend in my twenties was with a trip to Pawna with some of my favourite people in the world! Ending it with this gorgeous sunset! The only way to bring in my thirties, in my Happy place! 😬

#30before30 - Reliving my 30 best memories from around the world before I turn 30! #4 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Scaling Mount Kilimanjaro was by far my most rewarding adventure. And unlike the Chaddar Trek, I’d sign up for this again in a heartbeat! When I look back now, I remember wondering and worrying if I’d even make it up there. But I eventually mustered the courage and it was while I was hiking up, I realised that the Universe was preparing me for this day even before I knew it.
All credit here goes to those free-spirited D.E.A.S hikes in school that I went on as a teenager. It had unknowingly prepared and toughened me to rise up to the challenges presented here, which no doubt helped me to successfully scale the highest peak in Africa.

Only if could go back and thank my teachers for putting me through that unsuccessful gold-level (most difficult) hike to Bhimashankar, the only blemish on my otherwise stellar D.E.A.S. record. I had failed then, but that failure only toughened me and only because of it I managed to survive the treacherous 17-hour night hike to the summit. The euphoria is unparalleled. I hope such adventures continue to challenge me for this next decade and beyond, for what is a life, if not full of adventure!

“All the crazy shit I did tonight.. those will be the best memories..” 🎶🎵🎶🎵🎶🎵🎶
Still brings back the fondest of memories.
This one was my most epic party trip so far and the chances are it will remain that way because I really don’t think I can repeat the “all day everyday party trips” anymore. But that’s what Mykonos will be for me - the bestest time with the bestest company. Booze flowed like water and champagne showers on the party table, were the norm. We jumped from the party table into the ocean and back and danced away to my then favourite DJ Afrojack under the full moon.
Back then Facebook was still big and I remember my inbox being flooded with messages from friends and acquaintances asking for my itinerary wanting to know all about the trip...And that’s when it all started, with people associating travel with me! And here I am today sharing my best memories with you guys today!

PS: This was also the first time I flaunted that bikini body 7 years ago which then inspired me to muster the courage and be myself even on social media.
Which is your favourite party destination??

The good company and insight of local friends in a foreign country is such a blessing and adds so much to the whole experience. I was in Lisbon a few summers ago where I met up with some Portuguese skipper friends from our time spent at @theyachtweek in Croatia. Guess what? The next thing I know, out of the blue, we’ve got a mini yacht of our own and are sailing across the Tagus River sipping on beers, catching up on crazy stories and watching the sun go down. All this, while experiencing Lisbon’s iconic spots from the other side. What more can I ask for? 😬

#30before30 - Reliving my 30 best memories from around the world before I turn 30! #8 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Some of my fondest memories were etched in the jungles of Tadoba! We were super lucky to see a total of 16 tiger sightings and spotted 10 different tigers over 5 safaris in just two and half days. From what I had heard, this doesn’t happen very often, and I doubt I’ll ever be able to match this luck ever again. The thrill of chasing tigers coupled with the luxury of an open shower in the middle of nowhere were the highlights of my day. Sharing all this with my inner most circle while being pampered by @the_bamboo_forest was the icing on the cake! Can’t believe it took me that long to discover this forest that was so close to Bombay. I know the jungle girl inside me will be drawn back to these forests very soon.
What’s your dream wildlife safari destination?

What’s better than road tripping? Road tripping in a bikini.. 😉😜😬
The Algarve offered the best of both. Stopping for picnics on nameless hidden beaches, taking surf lessons in Sagres, partying the night in Albufeira and living it up at our own pace. All of it came so naturally to me even back then, including driving on the wrong side of the road. We thought we were just having fun on a vacation but now when I look back I’ve realised how much I’ve learnt and how confident these trips have made me which no classroom ever could do. Do you agree?

As much as I like to plan my trips, being easy going has always surprised me with the best! I had booked a cheap hotel in the mountains of kabab in Turkey and when I got there I had to trespass this beautiful property to get to my hotel on the other side. The vibe there was so positive I couldn’t help but stop by the reception to ask if we could stay here instead ( I hadn’t see this property online before). In spite of being sold out the staff pitched tents and accommodated my friends and me for a mere €10 a night. This pool, beach and breakfast included! I couldn’t be happier! 😬

Travel only leads to more travel... I was stranded in Labuan Bajo with a freshly twisted broken ankle when I met Steve and Ollie. They were the reason I dared to continue on that trip instead of taking an emergency flight back home. I got to explore the island with them which I wouldn’t be able to do alone. A few days later, we said our good byes and continued on our own journeys with the hope that our paths will cross soon. As luck would have it, we stayed in touch and later that year itself they came to visit me in India and the three of us backpacked around Kerala, where I got to show them around God’s Own Country. Isn’t that awesome?? Have you made friends on the road and met up again?
