Travel & Tourism Fair, Ahmedabad, 2012

While I was going through the Times of India, Ahmedabad edition yesterday, my eyes caught this full page advertisement of Travel & Tourism Fair (TTF - as it is called) which is the country's biggest travel and tourism fair being held from 24th till 26th of August 2012, at Gujarat University Exhibition Hall, Ahmedabad.

It is one of the biggest travel fair being organized, wherein different countries of the world like China, Dubai, Nepal, Singapore and many more are taking part. All the states of India along with renowned travel agents are coming together on one platform to showcase their regional art & culture and promote travel and tourism on the global as well as national level. 

This is one of the best move taken up by the States' Tourism Departments and it will surely boost and fetch some more tourists as well as generate revenue to the Government treasury. 

I visited the fair yesterday and saw that all the states had put so much efforts to visualize their tradition, culture, arts, crafts, and the beautifully designed brochures were providing all the required information to the prospective tourists. 

I am posting here some of the pictures I had taken yesterday which will give you the feel of the event. The TTF is going on till the 26th of August and the entry is free for all. A must visit for everyone enthusiastic about travel !

Day 2:

Having visited the event on the first day, it was obvious that I'd be visiting TTF again and there I was with my daughter on the second day...

My daughter was very excited about the event and we both decided to spend our weekend chilling out at the venue.

A New Beginning

I have been thinking about writing blogs for quite some time now, however, I don't know, but I could never find enough strength to start writing a new post. I usually blame my office schedule for this, then at times, I used to blame my family life for this but deep inside I always knew that it was fear of rejection which was stopping me from starting off.

Yesterday, while going to bed, I started telling my daughter about one of my blogger friend, Mridula Dwivedi    who is someone I am really envy of and at the same time whom I look up to. As if my daughter was fed up and she literally screamed, "Why in the hell don't you do something in your life?" This was like a wake up call for me and I realized that it was now a high time that I too, start to share my travel experiences with fellow netizens.

This blog is a humble attempt to share my travel experiences with all of you and I do hope that you might find something which may assist you in planning your next vacation.
