Every once in a while, you’ll hear someone say, “Wow, this month literally raced past us,” which really gets you thinking. So much changes in the span of 30 days, almost like a movie with several twists in the plot. It can be hard to keep track of, but that’s what we’re here for.

There are so many beautiful places to travel to which are at a stone throw distance from Pune, and with so many adventurous things to do!
