Hi, I am A.G.Aranha, residing at Pune since 2011. Earlier, I was residing at Mumbai for more than 25 years. The hectic life of Mumbai made me to think of settling somewhere near Mumbai and here I am in Pune.
There are a number of places and spots in and around Pune/Mumbai for short visits/picnics. I have been travelling all across the country on official engagements. Going on a holiday with my wife M.M.Aranha and two daughters any time between 2 years to 5 years was a task that required some pre-planning from selecting the place, mode of travel, hotel for stay, shopping etc. The information and photographs collected during such holiday vacations are reproduced in this website 'Travelspl.com'. It is named 'travelspl' to focus on travel area.
Northern and southern parts of India have so much to offer for holiday goers, the respective area governments being proactive in tourism development. Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Goa, Andaman Islands among others are much sought after by travelers in southern part and Chandigarh, Shimla, Kullu-Manali, Himachal Pradesh, Kashmir, Uttaranchal are some of the places preferred in the north. In the north-east, it is Siliguri, Gangtok, Darjeeling, Nepal and other surrounding areas.
There is so much to explore the nature and its beauty in this great country of ours. The more you travel, the better it gets to you.
In addition, some of the international holiday destinations that I have visited have also been covered in detail.
This website is designed basically to share my first hand experience in the various travel spots, even though limited, with other travelers in India including a schedule on the great European Tour.
I hope this would be of help to my fellow travelers.
Thank you !
