#ICHExplores: The right kind of #Sunday blues exploring the the Breganza House in Goa.
350 years old, This mansion is the most exquisite heritage house in the countryside, the biggest in Goa and also has a Portuguese style facade. It is a museum of chandeliers, painting, porcelain, crystal, period furniture and other antique items.
If you're intrigued by the heritage Portugese villas of Goa, here's one that you must visit!
Let’s keep our adrenaline pumping on a hike through the different enchanting trails around the Red-Rose City, Petra.
The trails lead you up to tombs, caves and beautiful rock carvings with an explosive palette of colors. Be ready to spend around 8 to 9 hours. Great workout!
After an extremely hot(94 degree), uphill climb of 850 steps we finally reach the largest monument at Petra -Al-Deir, also known as the Monastery. Absolutely stunning!
Can you see the rock at the extreme right corner of the picture? That’s where I mostly sat and watched these mountains change their shapes and sizes, their textures and peaks during my Vipassana Course at Dhamma Centre in the middle of nowhere in Ladakh.
Can you imagine how insane it must have been to live here in silence for almost 11 nights? The sky is breathtaking.
When you will read my Vipassana Experience on my blog, you will realise how this view helped me survive the ten days of silence.
Suddenly, I miss my rock. That was something I held onto in my silence, and stared at this view.
This is the same sky I saw a meteor shower + Milky Way in. And it’s just one side of the whole view. Imagine the same view at 360 degrees. However, on the other half of the landscape - the mountains were really close to us. I did climb the cony rocks and watched this view from a even higher level on one of the days of Maun - but because we give away our phones for ten days there - I have managed to click these pictures only in the few hours of the last day of course when we got our phones back.
Have you done Vipassana? What was it like? Share your experience!
