This small trip to Kutch is possibly one of the most fascinating travel experiences ever just because of the different and antic experiences we had. (Read: Road Tripping to Rural Bhuj) There are very few places in the world that feel like closer to my soul and Mandvi Beach was one of them. I showed up there with a distressed soul struggling and managing daily house chores, on an impulsive trip that I hoped would rejuvenate me And what to say? That place gave me a break time, space and natural beauty to think, write, and appreciate and to live the little joys of life again.
I instantly fell in love with beach the moment I got off from our car and saw the endless blue water and felt burdensome wind slapping my face. Tide was too low, and the the small waves were breaking on the beach, but the view and the warm water – niiice! I stayed there for a couple of hours, trying to be sensible in the fierce sun.
It will take me a few days to digest my small and refreshing trip to kutch. But for the people who have never been to this place, I wanted to give you a quick taste of some of the highlights of this wonderful, captivating place, a place that stole my heart.

I walked along white sandy curbs of Mandvi beach, lazed down for 20 min and spent sometime sitting and making funny doodles on the sand to find moments like these.
