Veena World Travel Mission: Exploring the Countries from our Geography Textbooks

“The countries whose names we read in our geography textbooks as children are etched in our minds. Little did we imagine that one day we would have the opportunity to travel to these very countries. Thanks to Veena World, our childhood wish is coming true as we prepare to embark on a journey to Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan with them. Our connection with Veena World was forged through Gopalkrishna Tours, their Preferred Sales Partner in Aurangabad. It all began in 2016 when we booked a Ladakh tour with Veena World, and since then, for the past nine years, we have been loyal travellers with them. With 18 tours under our belt and 36 countries visited, our adventures with Veena World have been nothing short of extraordinary.

My name is Umesh Bhalerao, and my wife Varsha and I share a passion for travel. While I find solace in natural scenic beauty, Varsha is drawn to the sea and beaches. Perhaps this is why Slovenia, a picturesque European gem, resonated with us the most. With its stunning Alps and the serene Adriatic coast, Slovenia captured our hearts, especially the enchanting city of Bled with its idyllic lake and historic castle. Memories of our helicopter ride over Niagara Falls and our Nile cruise in Egypt still linger as cherished moments.

During each of our travels with Veena World, we have been accompanied by different tour managers, each leaving a lasting impression on us. One individual worth mentioning is Dinesh Bandivadekar, who led our tour to the USA in 2019. Since then, he has become our go-to travel advisor, offering personalized guidance and insights. With our sights set on visiting 100 countries in 1000 days, we trust that Veena World, with its unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional service, will help us achieve our ambitious goal”.

Veena World Customized Holidays: Exploring the Treasure Islands of Travel

As a child, you might have delved into books like 'Treasure Island,' fostering dreams of uncovering hidden treasures on remote islands. While your European holiday may not involve buried chests, it promises a unique opportunity to discover a wealth of unforgettable experiences on the continent's many enchanting islands, scattered from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. Embarking on an island getaway offers the perfect blend of relaxation and adventure, ensuring a holiday that is both tranquil and exhilarating.

Europe, particularly Greece, boasts thousands of islands, each with its own allure. From the picturesque Santorini and vibrant Mykonos to the historical Crete and lively Rhodes, these islands epitomize Mediterranean charm. Hydra, notably, stands out for its prohibition of cars and motorcycles, relying instead on mules for transportation—an experience worth embracing for the adventurous traveller. The island of Crete, steeped in the legacy of the Minoan civilization, is renowned for its exquisite weaving tradition, while Santorini's iconic architecture has graced the silver screen in Bollywood productions, adding a sense of familiarity to its scenic beauty.

In Italy, Sicily and Sardinia beckon visitors with their Mediterranean allure. Capri's famed Blue Grotto and Ischia's thermal gardens are among the highlights, offering unique natural wonders to explore. Meanwhile, Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca, and Formentera, forming the Balearic Islands, promise sun-drenched beaches by day and vibrant nightlife by night, along with a myriad of water activities to enjoy.

Corsica, nestled in the French Mediterranean, stands out for its rugged mountain ranges, offering both beachfront relaxation and adventurous trekking opportunities. For those seeking a less-travelled path, destinations like Malta in Southern Europe and Madeira in the North Atlantic Ocean offer a treasure trove of ancient structures, stunning natural landscapes, and delectable cuisine. Madeira, aptly known as the 'Pearl of the Atlantic,' invites travellers to explore its historic ‘Levadas’, indulge in its natural swimming pools, and savour its renowned wines against the backdrop of breath-taking sunsets.

European islands offer a refreshing alternative to the continent's bustling cities, providing a perfect synthesis of beach retreats, historical marvels, and scenic vistas. For those eager to embark on this island adventure, Veena World's customized holidays department awaits, ready to curate an unforgettable journey through the treasure islands of travel.

‘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!
