Hey Guys 🙂 Guess what? Swarupa’s World turns two years old today!!! 🙂

It’s been two years ago since my first post !!! I really can’t believe that this wonderful blog of mine has been around two years. But, here we are 😉

Thank You

Thank you very much, my dear fans, for your continuous support and feedback. I really appreciate it 🙂

When I started blogging back in July 2012 I had no idea about where this blogging journey would take me. Two years on, I’ve learnt so much about blogging, writing and social media. Writing is one of my creative outlets and I try to improve it with each passing day.

I know that my style of writing is different than many other people. I’ve received some really beautiful and deeply touching emails and comments about my blog from fans and readers across the world. It makes my day when I read how my blog has inspired them to do something similar.

Coming to the contents of the blog, most of my posts are about travel, food, culture, history, life, philosophy and… a bit about me!

Mexico has featured prominently on my blog till now, covering Mexican travel, food, culture, history, Mexican people and their lifestyle, etc. It’s just a tiny part compared to the details featured in my three books on Mexico:

Discovering Mexico

Mexico: The Country, Its History & The Maya World and

A Guide To Mexican Cuisine


Among various other posts on Mexico you can read about the federal district of Mexico City; Guadalajara, Puerto Vallarta, Ajijic and Mazamitla in the state of Jalisco; Cancun, Xcaret and Tulum in the state of Quintana Roo; Merida, Chichen Itza, Uxmal and Kabah in the state of Yucatan; Campeche City and Edzna in the state of Campeche; Villahermosa in the state of Tabasco; San Cristobal de las Casas and Palenque in the state of Chiapas; Oaxaca City, Teotitlan, Monte Alban and Mitla in the state of Oaxaca; Veracruz City and El Tajin in the state of Veracruz; Acapulco in the state of Guerrero; Puebla City & Cholula in the state of Puebla; Morelia and Janitzio Island in the state of Michoacan; Zacatecas City in the state of Zacatecas; Guanajuato City, Dolores Hidalgo and San Miguel de Allende in the state of  Guanajuato.


I’ve also posted a lot about India covering travel in Ladakh, North-East, North India, South India ; Indian food; Indian culture, etc.

Besides the above, you can read a bit about me and my personal stories 🙂
