I’m Karmughil and I Work, Travel, Make Memories, Love Wildlife and Photography. A Sports and Fitness freak. Blog about my Solo and Group Travels. Write Poems when I get so poetic. And I’m just kissin’ fate with intense romance! 😉
I have read and heard about travelers who have been to over 70+ and 80+ countries – Even much more, 100 countries! I have been to two. Yes! – Only two countries 😦 😦 Having the beast of Wanderlust taking greater leaps in me quite often and yet visited only one overseas country makes me undoubtedly mad. That’s pretty much a worry factor in me. And you know having visited these two big countries (India and the United States), there is still a lot left out to take trips.

Places in India that stands out to me; From the trips I have made.
I just did a rewind of my travels I have made so far and started a virtual revisit of the beautiful places and memories I have collected all my 30 years. Kashmir, the land of paradise strikes me immediately! – Pahalgam and Gulmarg in particular; Magnificent beaches of Havelock Island accompanied by the Green Mountains and Sea stacks in Andaman Sea; The Green Plains and Green Mountains of Munnar in Kerala, the God’s own country; Boat houses and Vembanad Lake in Kumarakom, Kerala; Mudumalai National Park in the Nilgiri Hills, the so-called Blue Mountains in South India.
Western Ghats and Eastern Ghats Mountain Ranges in South India; Palolem beach in the former Portuguese colony, Goa; Ever Green hill stations – Ooty (Udhagai) and Kodaikanal; Grey clouds and cool breeze, embracing hills of Lonavala in Maharashtra; Kanya Kumari the southern tip (Cape Comorin) of the peninsular Indian Sub-Continent and the Juncture of the three seas – Just like Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. I have visited much more attractions in India. But the aforesaid places are the ones that stay afresh in my soul of wanderlust forever.
Fallen in love with the United States! – Just like any other new visitor!
90% of the trips I have made in United States were solo – And I just loved all the 90%! The Flint Hills and Tallgrass Prairies of Kansas; Snow-clad Rocky Mountains of Wyoming, Montana and Colorado; Wonderful Sunsets of Nebraska; Lamar Valley of Yellowstone National Park; Hot Springs and Geysers of Yellowstone; Yellowstone Lake back dropping Snow capped mountains; Jackson Lake by the Tetons.
Santa Monica Mountains in the Pacific Coast of California; Ozark Mountains of Arkansas and Oklahoma; Great Sand Dunes of Colorado; Deserted and Barren Lands of Nevada and California; the Magnificent Terrains of the Badlands in South Dakota; the beautiful agricultural fields of Iowa, Colorado, Missouri and Kentucky; Stunning Corn fields of Illinois; Jaw dropping Smoky Mountains of Tennessee; Uwharrie National Forest of North Carolina; Peoria Heights in Illinois and Amazing North Eastern states like New York, Connecticut and New Jersey.
To be precise, I have made trips to a total of 22 states all as a whole in the United States. And I must say that somehow I missed out the rest 28 in my 18 months stay. When seen as the big picture, the United States is absolutely beautiful which has been gifted with incredible nature, impressive variety of landscapes and this country offered me the sheer beauty of all the four seasons which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Sponsoring a H1B or L1 Visa to the United States?
Attention Employers! –Would you like to sponsor me a H1B or L1 visa to the United States for an SAP MM or SAP VC project? I will finish the rest 28 states and the whole country and then I will move on to next! 😉 😉 And I will say “THANK YOU!” 🙂 🙂
