When I was invited to take a look at the website MyIndianStay.com I was not sure what to expect. By now I have spent a few hours on the site and I have to say I quite like the prices they quote! At that prices I am game to try out a few properties soon! I decided to pick up five that excited me due to various reasons and share it on my blog.
A Tree House in Leh, Ladakh
I visited Leh in 2005 and I am completely smitten by the place. It was less of a journey and more of a pilgrimage for me, that trip to Ladakh. While browsing through the various stays I stumbled upon a tree house! Now I can only imagine what fun it would be to stay in a tree house anywhere but I can take a bet that in Leh it is going to be extra special. I actually want to drop everything and run straight to Leh and try out this tree house!
Fully Furnished AC Rooms in a Guesthouse in Calangute, Goa
From a tree house to AC rooms is quite a contrast. But I like all kind of experiences, from luxury to trekking! I picked up Calangute because it is a bit out of my comfort zone. I am a peace/nature kind of a person. And Calangute is North Goa, the party hub! I liked the appearance of the room and the surroundings and hence this preference for a Guesthouse! It is also in pretty Goa colors!
Luxury Tents in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan
I have been to Jaisalmer and I so so like the place! I have been to sand dunes but I have not stayed in tents. This time if I go, I would like to stay in a tent closer to the dunes. I would take a camel safari where I can spend a night in the desert under the stars and wake up to watch the sunrise!
Standard Room in a Guesthouse in Naldhera, Shimla
Naldhera is just 22 kilometers ahead of Shimla but it is a different world. It is a peaceful place, where you do nothing other than enjoying nature. But I also know that there were only a few stay options which were on the higher side. So when I saw a room in a guest house I wanted to go back to Naldhera!
Bamboo Cottages in Wayanad
In this list Wayanad is the only place I have not been before. It is the lure of exploring a new place plus living in a bamboo cottage that gets me excited. I have had my share of hotels. I am always game for an offbeat experience which these bamboo huts could offer!

I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
