2012 : A year of travel

Oriental White Eye from Khijadiya Bird Sanctuary, Jamnagar
Had an extraordinary travel year in 2012 when I had literally traveled across the length and breadth of this vast country. It included mind boggling experience of snorkeling in a warm sea at Anadaman to getting frozen in sub-zero temp in Himalayas to get inside a submarine at Vizag. It started with a trip deep down south east to Andaman and ended with a trip to the west coastal town of Jamnagar in Gujarat. The list is under -
  • Jan : Andaman, Kolkata , Kanha NP (MP)
  • Feb : Sultanpur
  • Mar : Kolkata, Vadodara
  • April : Bandhavgarh NP (MP)
  • May : Mumbai, Nagpur, Nagzira WLS, Ranthambhore NP
  • June : Ranthambhore NP, Dibrugarh, Sivasagar, Ahmedabad
  • July : Corbett NP
  • Aug : Rajahmundry, Vishakhapatnam, Dehradun
  • Sept : Dehradun
  • Oct : Goecha La trek (Sikkim), Siliguri
  • Nov : Singalila trek, Guwahati
  • Dec : Jamnagar, Ahmedabad

This was my full first year in the wild and wildlife photography. Most of my trips were wildlife oriented. One has to be in wild to capture wild moments. 2012 saw me travelling to seven different national parks across different states. These trips to jungle are expensive, but enjoyed every bit of it. Saw more than 20 tigers in the wild in the 21 safaris that I took in various jungles. 

2013 is now calling. As of now, it is too cold now for any comfortable travel. The travelling calendar is getting kicked off on in the last week of January with a trip to the Little Rann of Kutch (LRK) and Sasan Gir in Gujarat.
