I think that I can totally count on you to give me some insider tips to travel to Northeast. This lockdown kind of delayed all the plans, I was hoping to take a solo road trip and cover all the seven sisters but I guess destiny had other plans.
Yes, the images and writing on the Meghalaya rekindled the spirit to visit again. As soon as possible though.
