The past year and its shenanigans have made keeping my spirits up a very challenging feat. But off late, my mood seems to be especially down in the dumps. I reckon this may have a lot to do with being confined to my house for over 12 straight and painfully long months. In other words, the lack of travelling is really beginning to put a dent in my efforts at staying cheery and good-tempered. I want a change in scenery, I want a different route to explore. But more than anything, I want a place with a gorgeous view where I can kick my feet up, and unwind my mind without a care in the world. 

Well, as bitter as a pill it has been to swallow, I am inching closer to accepting that the world will return to normalcy, only at a pace it deems fit. We mere mortals have little control over things. What we do have control over, is our own plans. So, if travelling is what your heart has been yearning for ever since the word lockdown was introduced into our vocabularies, we have listed 5 fabulous staycation spots in Bangalore you must consider settling into for the time being!
