Project365 ends today! 9
1st July 2015 – Mamallapuram, India The memories will remain etched for ever Of a year that went by in poetry and pics. But its not the places that will spring to mind. Its only – and always – the people who will stick. I thought this day would never come, but it’s day 365 today!   Its been 35 countries (and Kosovo), spread across 3 different continents. With 21 international flights, 23 international border crossings by land and couchsurfing in 20 countries. Riding a motorbike through 12000 km of the indian subcontinent, including the cold Himalayan roads of Nepal and […]

10th April 2015 – Dresden, Germany I said goodbye to the Germans, those stony faces. Met the Czechs. And gave my regards too. Then fled. The Spaniards are my calling today. Barcelona again. Wait. I know no Spaniards there. Its all a french spread.   The day started hectic. And ended pretty much the same way too. So, I left Radebeul in the morning, and went back to Dresden. With my heavy backpack and all. I had a bus from Dresden to Prague by 11 AM, but I still had time to kill. So, I hung out around the many churches that […]

9th April 2015 – Radebeul, Germany The city held no promise, so I headed deep Into the suburbs, into a lost town called Radebeul. After the wines were tasted, and the heights covered We even had to honor Bismarck, as a general rule.   I think I had seen enough of Dresden already. So, I took a train, and headed to Radebeul, in the suburbs of Dresden. I never had Radebeul on my plans. It happened as a result of a couchsurfing invite from Ellie, who lived there. And when I checked it up, Radebeul had some amazing vineyards, and beautiful, […]

8th April 2015 – Dresden, Germany Winter still ruled. With a cold hand and  A touch of unrelenting, unforgiving steel. Spring is near, everyone tells me nowadays. But that is not exactly how I feel. I woke up in the morning, and went to take a walk in the Neustadt area of Dresden. The only problem: its still winter! Well, it has been a really long winter for me already. Starting from the cold reaches of Nepal and Bhutan, I found a little respite in the beaches of Sri Lanka and Maldives. Then, came the snowy days in Istanbul, and the winter […]

Project 365: Day 281 – Is spring ever coming?


Dresden, germany, singing house
7th April 2015 – Dresden, Germany The eyes stared back, some curious, some hostile. And the road looked bleak, until some warmth was shared. In the alleyways of Dresden, I found a home with music. Pegida must see it too. They could have compared. I took a morning bus from Prague to Dresden, Germany. After 150 ams, 2 hours, and a police checkpoint, I was in Dresden. The first thing that I noticed about Dresden was the intense staring that I received from almost everybody in the town. Like, really intense. And thanks to the stoned nature of German faces, I really couldn’t […]

This was the first post of an entire year-long series, which I named ‘Project 365′. The idea was simple enough: travel for a full year and document every day of it, in the form of a daily picture and poem. I am still working on a book of this year-long travel, but till then, enjoy all the posts here. You can check out the daily posts in the details below or jump to the final day of the project by clicking here. 1st July 2014 – Singapore From dust we rose and to dust we shall go And dust is […]
