Stuck at home with itchy feet

I am stuck at home as I am money to fly or stay in a decent hotel and all trains are running full.So am currently looking for sponsors and well wishers and good ideas to travel without spending much.I write for a living and so if any magazine or website out there wishes me to travel to Kerala or Kumbakonam in exchange for a story, I am game. Hope some resort or hotel owners out there are listening as well and will show me some hospitality in return for some publicity. This weekend has been particularly disappointing. Four destinations were planned and they all remained in the planning stage only . Next week seems to be going the same way . So, here I am sitting and looking at my old pictures and feeling nostalgic

    Ugh. I know just the feeling. It’s the worst form of restlessness that there is.

    But maybe it’s a good thing. Maybe you’ll get nostalgic enough looking at some of the photos and churn up a new blog on some of the old places you’ve been to and never blogged about. Or maybe the itchiness will get so bad that you’ll discover some places right near where you live that you never knew existed. Just drive down roads you havent driven before. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hi Lakshmi! Oh dear, welcome to the group… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Stuck!! Why don’t you take a look at Chatwin’s ยซAnatomy of Restlessnessยป? Could help… ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Meanwhile, do you want to have a look at a magic place: Delos, Apolloโ€™s birthplace and home to Dionysus sanctuary? Blogtrotter has it! ;))
    Hope you enjoy! Have a great weekend!

    Here’s an offer.

    2 nights 3 days in the national capital. includes a homely stay, a/c double, wi-fi to keep your blog updated, a car though w/o driver but can be arranged at a minimal cost.

    You would be sharing the apartment with other inmates, includes a 3.5 year old hyper-active kid.

    The weather is pretty nice here and someone wrote at some post that Delhi has more than 150 monuments.

    I feel for that little goat out in the rain, and for you too! I hope you have been swamped with people wanting you to write about their places, and paying you well.
    Good luck! ๐Ÿ™‚
