    Fascinating World Beckoning Places... "How very simple life would be If only there were two of me A Restless Me to drift and roam A Quiet Me to stay at home. A Searching One to find his fill Of varied skies and newfound thrill While sane and homely things are done By the domestic Other One. And that's just where the trouble lies; There is a Restless Me that cries For chancy risks and changing scene, For arctic blue and tropic green, For deserts with their mystic spell, For lusty fun and raising Hell," ​ from The Double Life by Don Blanding India's International Travel Magazine Touriosity 100th Issue Milestone 3,003 3 16 likes.

So we decided to dedicate this issue to this theme. But there is a difference. While all our previous mountain issues were centred around a mountaineering expedition, this issue is not. Here we have brought to our readers glimpses of mountains from around the world. These mountains have different claims to fame; while some are the highest peaks, others are known for sheer beauty or their adventure component, some are associated with legends, some others remain still unexplored. Mountaineers, travellers and readers, we expect this issue to benefit all.

A major part of the world is still under lockdown. But the good news is that countries are gradually opening up, airline companies are beginning their operations. But in order to reflect the true state of the current situation, we decided to have one more issue on Virtual Tourism, hopefully the last one.

This issue deals with one such very unusual sub-theme, Mud Tourism. Mud bricks have been known to be in use in construction since 7000 BC and the most remarkable thing about mud architecture is its durability and sustainability. This issue features some of the most beautiful ancient mud structures of the world that have stood the test of time and continue to beckon tourists from far and wide. In addition, it provides information to our readers about mud volcanoes, mud baths, mud festivals and more.

Over the years, in our forest themed issues we have dealt with various sub topics like insects, birds, reptiles, tigers, endangered species, arctic wildlife and so on. But this one has a special focus, one which is very close to our hearts. In this issue we talk mainly of mothers and babies in the wilderness and one doesn’t need to be a traveller, an avid photographer or a wildlife enthusiast to read through these stories and find them interesting.

Yet hardly do we realise often that it is so important to make the journey memorable in order that the travel stays etched in our memory forever. This issue is dedicated to the journeys we take to reach our travel destinations.

We are not dependent on commercials, nor do we promote tourism products for gain. But we do promote places, and the spirit of travel and exploration. And unlike other travel magazines, Touriosity has been relentlessly working at promoting Sustainable Tourism ever since its first issue of June-July 2012. To try and illuminate stakeholders in the Tourism Industry about the need of sustainability therein and the ways and means to achieve the same, we thought we should also dedicate an entire issue to Sustainable Tourism. In this section, we bring to our readers a quick look at the sustainability concerns that we have been voicing through our issues over the last 8 years. The concerns raised over the issues should also help guide our readers in their future travels. The issue also features the excerpts from International Conference on Sustainable Tourism 2019 held in Kolkata on 23rd August 2019 with the objective of examining critical sustainability issues for the Tourism Sector and explore what they mean for business in tourism . The objective is also to explore the pressing issues, bringing together the country’s opinion leaders for a day of debate and high-level discussions.

Some go there to relax and unwind amidst unexploited and virgin nature, some escape to the hills to find respite from the scorching heat of summer and especially so during the sum¬mer vacations of kids, some are drawn by the mountain and adventure sports that most of these locations have on offer, in a country like India a substantial percentage of mountain tourists are basically pilgrims coming all the way to perform their religious duties and last but not the least, there are people who go to climb mountains. This issue of Touriosity combines stories of all these types of visitors and the various types of mountain destinations accordingly.

The issue features articles on various tree attractions around the world including creepy trees, unique trees and rare species as also those with a long history or interesting legend behind. Articles ​ More Click on the Image to read this issue August 2017 Log In ​ Touriosity Travelmag has done it again - it has dedicated an entire August 2017 issue to a very rare theme, Volcanos.

Many of us love rains, not just because it brings respite from the heat but also because many places that are bestowed with nature’s bliss, look perfectly paradisiacal during the rains. And because the school vacation of kids sometimes coincide with the rainy season, we often have to go for holidays during the rains. This issue, therefore, is dedicated to all those places which, due to their sheer beauty and nature’s abundance, deserve footfalls during monsoon. Articles ​ More Click on the Image to read this issue May 2017 Log In ​ Not often do we at Touriosity dedicate an issue to an entire region, because we are more focussed at tourism sub-themes.
