About Us

My name is Rajaram Sethuraman (Google+ Profile). I am married and my wife’s name is Vidhya Ganesh. We currently live in Pune. We have two daughters, Akshara and Advika. We moved from Cyprus in April 2009 after a stay of almost 8 yrs there. The 8 years in Cyprus were an eye-opener for me in terms of travelling and enjoying the bounties of nature.

Cyprus, though very small, had so much to offer to the interested explorer, that a casual Cyprus travel blog which i started on Cyprus, eventually grew big with me adding details on all the places i visited. I still keep updating it as there are dozens of places which i am yet to write about.

I hope to continue to travel even while in Pune and to keep me motivated, i have started this pune blog called Places near Pune, which will contains details and photographs of all places around Pune that i visit.

UPDATE: It’s been a little more than 6 yrs in Pune now (Aug 2015) and i have enjoyed every minute of it. This blog has grown into a good reference for places to visit around Pune, but if you count the number of places, it is not even (proverbially) the tip of the iceberg. I think i can spend every weekend of my life going to a different place here. My journey continues and so will this blog’s…
