One With The Earth

I visited Red Earth, a resort on the banks of the Kabini river, just last month. I must say, it’s a great place to lay back and unwind.
But what’s really special about the place is how it’s one with the nature around it. Each of the huts is made with red sand (hence the name red earth), local to the area. They tend to blend in and feel like they belong. Each hut is unique and took months of work to build. The red sand they’re made of was put together, layer after layer, and then left in the sun to bake. It’s like pottery, only the scale is much larger.

The roof is made of multiple layers of fibre, sewn together by local artisans. It’s water proof, and a nesting ground for many a birds from the area.

I also like how they’ve put a lot of thought into landscaping the entire area. Lot’s of flowers that are local to the surroundings, along with a few that help enhance the aura of the place. The vegetation has a wild feel to it, a roughness to it that is characteristic of the way this place has been built.

It truly does feel one with nature. Exactly what you feel while you’re there.

I’ve been on the move for a while now. This magazine is an amalgamation of all that I’ve seen, felt & experienced. It’s about some of the most beautiful roads on the planet – highways that connect megacities & broken B-roads that connect you to the soul of a place. It’s about some of the most luxurious hotels on the planet – that’s Luxury with a capital ‘L’. It’s about quaint AirBnB’s that take your breath away. It’s about places that no person has ever set foot on before. It’s about the machinery that helps us get to these places. At its crux, this magazine is about stories…
