Our Heritage trails give you a blend of Vintage Goa, portraying its rich heritage, social and cultural aspects. We capture the various essences of Goa through the holy sites and hidden caves in Divar Island, visiting the architectural works like old villas and buildings in the Portuguese area, enjoying the Latin music performed by a renowned artist during the Fontainhas Walking Tour and trying out local cuisine
We take you to meet indigenous people of the land to partake in their customs and traditions. Meeting people who have a very distinct culture helps you realise your own biases and dissipate cultural differences. We travel to the Nilgiris to interact with the Toda tribe, travel through Gujarat to unravel the mysteries of the Indus valley civilization, connect with the Lamas in Ladakh to understand the teachings of Mahayana Buddhism and learn traditional art forms from artists in Bihar.
Sketching is an awesome way to experience slow travel. You take note of finer details as you draw at a location and you get to feel the place- its architecture, its people, the cuisine and aromas all which get imprinted in a sketch. We provide you with the opportunity to sketch in the bustling city of Bangalore as well at our exotic destinations - Goa, Bylakuppe and Badami
Everything is better when shared and so is travel. Our travel socials are meetups with fellow travellers to share your passion, unfold tales, make new travel buddies and create memorable experiences. Every meetup is curated around a theme from slow travel, culinary arts, alternate lifestyles, dance, music, photography etc. Our presenters are inspiring people we have met during our journeys and they will share their special interpretation of travel.
India is a land of diverse cultures and myriad festivals. During festivals communities share amongst themselves and the world, their unique interpretation of traditional customs, values, mythos and legends. We take you to join in the celebrations of some of the exotic festivals celebrated in the country from tribal festivals in the northeast of India to the reverenced Buddhist festivals in the Himalayas and Portuguese festive traditions in Goa.
