Worst piece travel advice you have received?
Reply: Once I was travel to Dalhousie hill station with my family in Himachal Pradesh, India it was raining heavily and we took a tea stop and mean while tea shop owner suggest us the short cut to reach Dalhousie so we approach short cut instead of normal route. So, during our drive the short cut route was too dangerous and risky which took almost 6-7 hours to reach our destination which was 3 hours more than normal route.
What’s your ritual when you get to new destination?
During traveling firstly we searching accommodation our check in hotel and took 2-3 hours of rest if I travel by road. After that I search internet which are the nearby places an farther places to my hotel and took suggestions from hotel reception. After searching all I start exploring the place which is farther from my hotel. I believe we can check out nearby places to hotel in evening as well. During traveling I used accommodation only for rest more time I gave on exploring the destinations.
