Trip to Bhutan
Three things one looks for when planning a vacation, namely beautiful locations, comfortable Itinerary and hassle free journey. Our group represented three generations aptly called Kal , Aaj & Kal consisting of UG uncle, Bina aunty , my better half Madhu and our 4 years old charming daughter Khyati. We had been thinking of visiting Bhutan for quite some time, but things starting taking shape with a causal talk with Amish of Footloose Gypsy, with whom I had a very pleasant experience of Leh trip in the year 2015.
I explained our requirements to Amish and he promptly gave an itinerary for 9N/10days, covering all important locations, major towns, adventure and ionic landmarks. Our trip started from Bagdogra airport on 21st September,2018 for Phuentsholing for 10 days of sheer enjoyment, passing through beautiful landscape, numerous waterfalls, and neat and clean surrounding. Our guide Mr Yonten and Driver Tenzin Khenrab, were most hospitable and went out of their way to make our visit memorable. They had a very clear understanding of their role to make our trip, as comfortable as possible. They possessed the required skill necessary for their role. The hotels and home stay at every place were as promised and met our expections.
We visited Thimphu, Punakha,Phobjikha, and Paro. Bhutan has plenty of beautiful Dzongs and Monasteies. The visit to Taktshang ( Tiger’s Nest Monastery), Punakha Dzong & Buddha Dordenna Statue were the high points as far as to see things were concerned. The narration would not be complete without mention of the beautiful place Phobjikha and 12 kms river rafting in Mo Chu river.
A big thanks to Amish of Footloose Gipsy, who regularly called to check our welfare, and guided us to maximize our enjoyment by giving valuable guidance regarding good places to eat and shopping if any.
Hope to catch up soon for another similar trip to some other part of the world.

12 days trip covering Srinagar, Kargil, Leh, Hunder, Turtuk, Zanskar river rafting, Pangong Tso and a 3 day trek... all this wouldn't have been possible without the minute by minute planning by one man: the one and only: Amish Shah.

We were 6 people from different cities across the globe coming together to do this trip. So, planning was key. We had all kinds of unexpected twists on the trip like:
1. Couple of guys missing their international flight because of rain and flooding in their city which forced them to start couple of days late.
2. Heavy rain in Leh and Manali route towards the end of the trip which forced us to change our plan and fly out of Leh to avoid delays on the road.
3. One guy falling sick while on the trek that force him to get back to Leh to rest a day to recoup.
4. Re-booking flights due to changes in plan.

For evey unexpected twist in our trip that we encounter, we would look towards Amish for help and he would lay down options for us and help us in suggesting the best alternate plan for us. Amish has a keen sense of the terrain, the local culture and sub-cultures within, the weather forcast, food, restaurants, amount of rest one needs at each location, places to shop for best deals and other minute details that makes him the go to person in every situation.

No matter where he is physically, he would make sure to touch base with us multiple times a day to make sure we are doing well. The best thing I like about Amish is that he is accessable and communicates well and promptly. He is there to answer every question we have. Amish is passionate about what he does. You would feel safe on the trip even if Amish is not physically present with you because somewhere in the back of your mind, you know that Amish has you covered.
Thank you Amish...!

I visited Bhutan on Amish's recommendation with my mother and 23 month old daughter this October and i couldn't have asked for a better girls trip!
Amish managed to chart out a perfect itinerary for us considering we couldn't handle anything too strenuous and needed sufficient relaxation in between. The tour guide yon and driver Tashi,were very caring and super entertaining(never a dull moment with those two). Hotels were decent and some even gave us VIP treatment thanks to relationships Amish has maintained.
Amish was connected throughout the trip and helped us with shopping and food recommendations.

Over all the arrangements exceeded our expectations and we look forward to more trips with Amish aka footloose gypsy(cool name by the way!)

We wish him all the success!
Keep it up!cheers.

Sun, sands, svelte women and sumptuous food is what I associate with a suave yet simple state of Rajasthan. Be it the scintillating folk dance performance at the Bagor ki Haveli in Udaipur or be it the resplendent Mehrangarh Fort basking in all its glory in the sun city of Jodhpur, or be it the stillness of the sand dunes in Khuri just outside of Jaisalmer or the simple sumptuous food that we had during the bishnoi village visit on the outskirts of Jodhpur, every place had something unique to offer us in Rajasthan. If Udaipur offered a taste of the folklore of the history of the Mewars, Jodhpur had its share of history from the Marwars. While Jaisalmer had a fort with inhabitants even to this day, the breath taking silence of the sand dunes of Khuri under a zillion stars to gaze at, was an experience in itself.
This trip to Rajasthan was a gourmet tour in itself. While Udai Kothi and Kothi Heritage offered elaborate menus, Garh Jaisal and Mamas resort offered us simple yet mouthwatering offerings for breakfast. The mirchi bada and the kachori at the Janta sweets, the lassi at the mishrilal, were a gastronomical delights. The swanky restaurants namely Hotel Raas, Ambrai and Fusion 1st Gate offered magnificent views apart from delicious food offerings. However, the icing on the cake had to be the simple but superb meal we had at the farm house during the bishnoi village safari.
As I run through the captures of my travel in my camera, my daughter gleefully tugging my forearm to look at the snaps she has clicked, an image of the rustic villager invariably passes in front of my eyes, lovingly inviting me to his land, singing “PADHAARO MAARO DES”!
Finally I must thank the sutradhar of this entire trip, Mr Amish Shah, who arranged each and everything painstakingly, and made sure this trip was indeed a wonderful and memorable experience for me and family! A Big thank you, Amish!
