Welcome to PolkaJunction!


I am Meenakshi, a travel blogger from India and the face behind this blog.

Travelling in the company of family and books has always been the Zen of my life.

Firstly, thanks to my father who was in the Railways and then being married to an Air Force Officer now, I got to and still get to travel to remote yet beautiful, unexplored and occasionally to some exotic places, all across India and abroad. From the verdant plains to rocky plateaus to golden deserts to snow-capped mountains to serene seashores..have covered almost every landscape in India.

I completely enjoy visiting places with my family members and friends. Somehow, I resist travelling alone or indulging in ‘solo treks and travels’. Ultimately, we all would be alone during our journey to our final destination, at the end of life. So why not enjoy and celebrate this life by travelling in the company of family and friends, isn’t it?

However, as a travel blogger, I have gone on solo trips too and I should confess that once in a while it is nice to explore a place all alone!

I have blogged about my experiences and learnings at various travel destinations in India, under this section. Almost all the places are ‘Family Destinations’.

Hope you enjoy reading these well-researched posts as much as I enjoy churning out the articles and putting together the clicks…

Thanks in advance for dropping by and happy reading!
