This Taraf_Calendar 2018-01

Hope you all are enjoying the holiday season and exploring amazing destinations. We are excited to read so many different posts on our feed. Just like 2017, 2018 is also going to be a travel friendly year for the ones bitten by the travel bug. Numerous long weekends are going to be your perfect getaway to all those places you planned and could never go in 2017. What would be better than a year that began with a holiday on Monday? Well, we were also making full use of that Monday to travel and the calendar got delayed. But better late than never.

Here comes our brand new travel calendar, where we have sorted the dates and probable destinations in India for each holiday and all you got to do is make the bookings. Let’s look forward to spending some quality time with friends, families and our own selves and make memories to cherish forever.
