Hello! I am Divya Rai and A Borrowed Backpack is my travel diary comprising of snippets from what I consider to be a “dream-life”. It is named so because, for one of my initial adventure-trips, I had to borrow the backpack from a friend. Now, of course, I have one of my own, but the first one is always special!
A Borrowed Backpack has recently been listed as India’s top 100+ travel-blogs. Thank you for all the love, folks. I would write anyway, but once in a while, a pat on the back doesn’t hurt. Please accept my gratitude.

Hi Divya .. Love the name of the blog !
Thanks, Grashima. 😀
I love your name. 🙂
Just a samll Introduction of mine …BTW your blog is awsm , i m a new Traveller…. ( Means i not have such a big experience in travelling),.but still i travelled Ladakh(A solo Bike tour on 14 july ,2013-23 july,2013), jammu( only jammu& near by places ), Himachal( Manali, Dhramshala,chamba,kangra) , and somewhere Jaipur …
Really enjoyed your blog , need a suggestion from your side.
I m planning to go kasol within this month end from 29 dec till 2 jan ( as i got some time from my office).
Please suggest me , that is it gud to go there at this time ??
waiting for your suggestions.
Kasol receives tourists throughout the year, but in highly varied numbers. A lot many cafes and eateries are closed due to low influx of tourists as they migrate temporarily to Pushkar, Goa and Gokarna. The Himalayan region, as you would know, is extremely cold during the dates you have chosen to visit Kasol in.
You can also visit Manikaran, which is close by Kasol.
Thanks for your kind words.
Wow! You’ve been to the best places already, man!
Hi there…liked your blog…I am from himachal(palampur),just wanted to suggest you a small place…it’s called BAROT..65 km from baijnath.there’s a trout fish breeding farm.Also visit lohardi,few km from there…hope you will like it…
Thank you Anil. I’ll surely research a bit about it and see if it possible for me to do it some time soon 🙂
Hey! When I started travelling, I borrowed a friend’s backpack too. In fact, I borrowed it so often, that she gave it to me, and said that she would borrow it when she needs it!
Great blog; happy travels!
Hahahahahahaa!! Wonderful friend you have!
Thank you so much Sosha. 😀 😀
Mine gave up on the backpack as I didn’t return it to him for quite some time after returning from the trip. I later sheepishly called him so that the backpack sits with its rightful owner. 😀
Nice reading about you
