Looking Back at 2014

2014 for me was a year of receiving or of getting back. It was a year of milestones and a year that I would cherish for a long time to come.

My debut book The MouseCharmers – Digital Pioneers of India came out in April 2014. I had spent all of 2013 working on this book and happy that the book has been well received.

My Book reviews blog AnuReviews got featured in Limca Book of Records for being the largest book reviews blog in India and in return I gave it a new look & feel this year.

I completed 10 years of blogging and it was a good point in time to look back at this wonderful journey. I chose a new identity for my travel blog – www.Inditales.com. Now you can also find me on YouTube and Instagram.

I moved to Goa just by a serendipitous stroke of destiny and I would not mind living here for the rest of my life – that usually refuses to be anchored in one place.

Travel wise this year was relatively low. Still, I traveled to

Dandeli in March

Malvan in April

Kerala in May

Thailand in July

Satara in August

Gujarat in October

Madhya Pradesh and Delhi in November

But then, living in a Goa is no less than being on an eternal travel. We have been enjoying the simple living of this smallest state in India never too far from nature. It’s a blessing to see the sun going down on the beach, to drive through the fields and water bodies, to see the happy tourists all over the place. A bit of Bohemia, a bit of culture and lots of festivity & easy living is what Goa means to me.

Wish you all a very Happy New year.
