It was September of 2011; time for another holiday. Vinod chose South Africa. I didn’t contest because I didn’t have a destination in mind. Vinod had spoken to many of his colleagues who travel a lot and all of them had recommended South Africa as ‘the’ destination to experience wildlife, adventure and nature.

Seychelles is a paradise. It is a beach destination like Maldives that offers a variety of adventurous aquatic activities and a rich marine world to explore. However, Seychelles is different as it offers the scope to explore terrestrial treasures as well. It is a big island and free to be discovered unlike Maldives where one is restricted to the resort island he is staying on.
It was the summer of 2015. We were bored, tired and desperately in need of a break. Our passports had just got renewed. It was a perfect time for a holiday. However, most countries require us to apply for a visa prior to travel and submit tonnes of supporting documents to prove our identity, intention of travel and return etc. Hence, we prefer to go to a destination that offers visa on arrival to Indians.
