Today we’re going to talk about something that’s close to everybody’s heart: travel. A huge trend in the lifestyle industry, we see a huge change in all of you (us too). Our mindsets are changing, and so we want to see new places, try new foods and escape city life from time-to-time.
2016 was special to us when it came to traveling. Not just because Pragati MOVED to Switzerland, one of the most beatific countries in the world, but also because we launched a travel special, and started contributing to platforms like Inspired Traveller and Tripoto.
We started writing on Travel in the middle of the year: it was also the last time I took a road trip with Pragati and her friends before she moved out. PS: If you love cloud porn, you must check it out!
This was followed by a very honest review of Casa Deep Woods which had actually spurred the lost inspiration to start back on travel like I used in my days of being a travel reporter (a very short stint back in 2010).
Even with her husband, life belongings and my niece, Pragati managed to encapsulate her feelings of leaving Bangalore and actually getting onto a flight which was eventually going to lose her luggage. The good part? After reading our tweet, Air France helped us get our luggage faster.
When the beach was calling we made sure you didn’t miss anything! There was a tried and tested method to madness aka 12 packing essentials. Beach, please!
We also started travelling near Basel and headed upto Lorrach for some live music and good food. Read up this awesome guide on how to get there and what to do!
August came, and with it our first travel special. We took this time to invite Prerna Mehra from MaaOfAllBlogs to write about her time in sin city.
A guest post by someone who’s not a writer, but one of the most passionate travellers I’ve ever met, Vishal’s post on riding to Leh-Ladakh is one of the most comprehensive and moving blogs on Be For Beauty.
Be For Beauty’s Travelogue on Paris: What to See, Things To Do, Parisian Attitudes, and More
We also did something we hadn’t done before. We went down memory lane, back when Be For Beauty didn’t exist (I know, right?) and wrote about our mixed feelings about Paris and a guide to the Louvre museum. We covered Venice (I wish you could hear my version of Italian) and Roma-Vatican City too.
‘Coz we thought it was necessary to point out how annoying you are!

Be for Beauty finally chose a sunny day for a weekend out! Read an extensive guide of what you should see, do and eat in Geneva (so pretty!)
Pragati’s best travel memories of spending a week exploring Lisbon has made it one of my favorite travelogues of all time. Plus our review of Sheraton Lisboa was very well received by others like us who love a glass of red wine at the end of a long day!
A recent post by Natasha Orne, a blogger and writer like us, her travelogue is a must read for anybody making plans to go to Oslo, Norway. As I write this, Natasha has gone back to witness Northern Lights–and we can’t wait for her to tell us more!
I’m happy to tell you that we’ll be ending this year by spending a week in Spain and blogging about it in 2017!

Happy Holidays everybody!
