Celebrating Life Around the World!

If you're a travel enthusiast, someone who's passionate about exploring different cultures, you might find that meticulous planning isn't always necessary. The allure of nature, diverse folk traditions, culinary experiences, architectural marvels, and historical landmarks from various corners of the globe effortlessly beckon you, keeping your wanderlust alive and thriving. This sentiment resonates deeply with us. Over the past decade, my wife and I have embarked on numerous journeys across the globe, each one made remarkably comfortable, enjoyable, and unforgettable, courtesy of Veena World. During these ten years, we've embarked on over 30 tours with Veena World, allowing us not only to explore most of India but also to visit 52 countries worldwide. 

Having traveled extensively, our eagerness to explore new destinations remains undiminished. Yet, we also find ourselves drawn back to places we've previously visited, especially considering the recent rejuvenation of many countries and states in terms of tourism. With the emergence of new attractions, there's always a fresh incentive for travelers like us to revisit these destinations. However, there are certain places where a single visit is simply insufficient. 

Now, when it comes to picking a favorite destination from the plethora we've explored, it's a challenging task. Each place holds its own unique charm, and we cherish the memories of experiencing them together. Nevertheless, if pressed, we'd rank Canada, New Zealand, and Australia at the top of our list. The mention of these names evokes images of lush forests, majestic hilltops, and pristine beaches – in essence, the allure of captivating natural landscapes. 

Our preference for traveling with Veena World stems from the exceptional service provided by their Tour Managers, who consistently shower us with warmth and efficiency, regardless of the destination. They become like family to us during our travels. I vividly recall an instance during our trip to Vietnam and Cambodia in 2020 when I sprained my leg just two days before our return. Our tour manager, Mehul Ghosalkar, cared for me with the tenderness of a beloved elder. This year alone, we embarked on journeys to Vaizag, Dindi, Araku Valley, and Borra Caves in January, followed by visits to Nainital, Mussoorie, Haridwar, Rishikesh, and Corbett in March. In late May, we're eagerly anticipating our upcoming trip to Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket, and Krabi. Our journey of celebrating life around the world continues unabated.

Join us on journeys of a lifetime! 

One lifetime isn't sufficient to explore the entirety of our world, including the vast wonders of India. That's why there's always more to see, and every now and then, we embark on new adventures. Last month, I received a call from one of our esteemed well-wishers, Mr. Santosh Lodha, who had previously joined us on a tour when I worked as a tour manager. He proposed, "Let's all go on a tour together." At that moment, Sudhir and I were in the car. I suggested to Sudhir, "Why not invite our guests to join us? Let's experience Veena World's tours and services from the perspective of tourists ourselves." And just like that, our virtual tour began. Starting from the northern tip of India, we still have many destinations awaiting our exploration, including Turtuk, Hanle, and the Aryan Valley in Ladakh. We have yet to witness the breathtaking Great Lakes of Kashmir and explore the newly developed destinations like Bota Pathri, Doodh Pathri, Drang, Aharbal, and Dachigam. Our journey from Manali to Leh awaits, along with visits to Chandrataal, seeking blessings at Ramlalla's shrine, and embarking on a cruise safari in the Ganges. Although we've traveled to Assam, Arunachal, and Meghalaya, there are still four of the Seven Sisters left unexplored. We eagerly anticipate visiting the newly emerging destinations like Mayabandar and Diglipur in Andaman. While we've visited major cities in Nepal, Bhutan, Sikkim, and Darjeeling, true exploration of these places is yet to come. Maharashtra, too, holds treasures yet unseen, such as Lonar and Tadoba. Each state holds something unique, like pieces of a puzzle waiting to be assembled. Our plan is to conduct around eight tours annually, focusing on offbeat and uncommon destinations from July to March. This yearly program of eight tours will be formally announced, with Sunila and the product team meticulously designing each itinerary. These tours are now available on Veena World's website. So, let's embark on this journey together, filled with laughter, songs, and dances. Let's anticipate something distinct, something off the beaten path! 

Veena World Customized Holidays
Darr ke Aage… Thrill Hai!  

If your idea of a holiday involves more than just relaxation and entails a thrilling adventure, then you can immerse yourself in a myriad of exhilarating activities such as skydiving, bungee jumping, paragliding, hot air ballooning, and truly experience 'holidays with adventure.' Picture yourself hurling out of a plane, thousands of feet above ground while skydiving, feeling the rush of wind as you soar through open space like a bird. As the adrenaline courses through your body, your parachute opens, and the distant land below approaches, you gracefully float in the sky. Perhaps, this description brings to mind the skydiving scene from the movie 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.' That very scene was shot in Costa Brava, near Barcelona, Spain. However, even in America, you can enjoy the 'Miami Tandem Sky Dive' or witness the dazzling 'Las Vegas Strip' from the sky with the 'Las Vegas Tandem Sky Dive.' From coral reefs to rainforests in Cairns, Australia, the sky offers a plethora of sights to behold. New Zealand, Australia's neighbor, is renowned as the Adventure Country, drawing countless adventure enthusiasts to cities like 'Rotorua' and 'Queenstown' for tandem skydiving. 

If you've already experienced paragliding in Thailand or Himachal Pradesh but crave more excitement, consider a Microlight Safari. A Microlight, a tiny two-seater aircraft, offers an almost open-air experience. Embark on a Microlight Safari above the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, Africa, for an unforgettable adventure. 

Another increasingly popular adventure sport is 'bridge climbing,' which can be experienced on numerous iconic bridges in Australia. Delve into this urban twist on mountaineering or rock climbing during your customized holiday in Australia. Alongside bungee jumping, available in South Africa, New Zealand, and Australia, Costa Rica offers bungee jumping from cable cars. Ziplining is another thrilling activity allowing you to glide over jungle canopies, seashores, or hills. The 'Jais Flight' in the United Arab Emirates holds the title for the world's longest zipline. Alternatively, experience the thrill of ziplining at Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur, India. From hot air balloons in Turkey to sky capsules in Haeundae, Busan, Korea, there is a myriad of options for an adrenaline-pumping holiday worldwide. Choose your adventure with Veena World and make your holiday truly exciting because Darr ke Aage… Thrill Hai!

‘Exchange a coin and you make no difference but exchange a thought and you can change the world.’ Hi! I’m Veena Patil... Fortunate enough to have answered my calling some 40+ years ago and content enough to be in this business of delivering happiness almost all my life. Tourism indeed moulds you into a minimalist... Memories are probably our only possession. And memories are all about sharing experiences, ideas and thoughts. Life is simple, but it becomes easy when we share. Places and people are two things that interest me the most. While places have taken care of themselves, here are my articles through which I can share some interesting stories I live and love on a daily basis with all you wonderful people out there. I hope you enjoy the journey... Let’s go, celebrate life!
