Travelling experience from a photographer’s perspective – Escape to Nature

Photography and travel are like expeditions hand in hand. Whenever I plan my trip for photography the majority of planning is in the stay, food, transfers and flights booking section. In short my personal travel agent Travel Chords with its portals does all the homework and give me peace of mind during the entire trip. There a lot of beautiful spots in Karnataka for a photographer who would love to engage in a mind blowing photography holiday.

My recent trip to malnad is a memorable gift given to me by my travel partner Travel Malnad a sister concern of Travel Chords Holidays. We were a group of 5 photography enthusiasts who planned this together and well executed by our travel experts. Our motif was clear, a nice location with a decent accommodation where we can spend 4 to 5 nights stay and give job to the shutters maximum. I liked the concepts put forth by Travel Malnad who are not just booking my stay or transfers but in detailed itinerary planner for a successful photoshoot trip.

Since we were in a group the choices and preferences for food to beverages were different and the hosts obliged for all the demands since we were travelling through Travel Malnad Brand. I was little skeptical in the beginning to choose remote locations considering the safety and security. The homestay given to us by Travel Malnad was extremely homely and secured and it was almost like that we have stayed at one of our own relative’s place.


The journey started from Bangalore on a Thursday and we were all geared up for this fantastic photography sessions. We were accompanied by Mr Richard one of the expert photographer from Australia. We were excited, energetic and looking for a new opportunity other than what we do in our routine work at Bangalore. The whole idea of “Escape to Nature” by Travel Malnad itself was running our minds continuously and all photo albums are named after this punch line. I was on the top with my adrenaline gush making me feel younger for adventure and older enough to appreciate the beauty of nature.

We reached the malnad homestay by noon time and welcomed with a nice fruit drink and continued with a sumptuous spread of buffet lunch. We had a nice lunch and all were feeling extremely pampered and took a nice power nap in the afternoon. Since we were there for next 4 days our instructor organized the time meticulously. Our evening photography sessions began at a nearby waterfalls and a hillock. Next 3 days was photo photo photo on our minds and cameras which kept us busy and filled our folders on our laptops a nice collection of clicks.

The fun element in travelling that makes you rejuvenated

It was one of the long weekends that we always craved in our work life and it happened during a national holiday on a Friday. When I told my family they were naturally excited about a trip to be planned for the long weekend. We had loads of things to be done and were obviously in dilemma about shortlisting the destination. There are several activities one can do during a long weekend and a professional holiday consultants like Travel Chords can be helpful in planning the trip meticulously.

There are several hotels, homestays and resorts to choose for accommodation and umpteen number of destinations to visit. How do we narrow down on the best option available in the market and how to spend our holiday meaningfully was our concern. The more we dwell on these questions we got confused as the options were competing with each other. Our travel expert stepped in at the right time to help us plan our trip methodically.

The Experience:

We all wanted a thorough rejuvenating holiday experience along with having loads of fun. Holiday experts at TravelChords/TravelMalnad were very patient in listening to all our requirements and professionally planning our trip without a single glitch in time management. Our trip started well on time and also completed without any regret. To start with we had planned to cover Malnad first and then move on to the coastal belt as our kids were eager about beach holidays.

The places we chose to cover were shortlisted by us with the help of our travel expert at Travel Malnad and he was very smart in analyzing our requirements. We chose Chikmagalur and Sakleshpur to cover in Malnad before heading towards Coastal Region. The stays and sightseeing places we got were extremely good and it helped us explore a lot of new places. The winter was welcoming us with a nice breeze wherever we traveled.

The entire trip was like a gem to treasure and we all enjoyed it forgetting all our daily routines and work pressures. I was rejuvenated by the mesmerizing touch of Mother Nature which I was longing from several months. The cup coffee had in the middle of coffee estate was so special for all of us who used to consider the cafes in the city as the best just for its modernity. The hosts at all the Malnad Homestays were very caring and they treated us just as their family members and friends.
