Perks of working with a travel company

Three months back I switched jobs and landed in Grallo, given I’m involved in the marketing, it seems that it is about time that I contributed to our slow moving blog. Grallo is a UK based event transport company, which has been a seismic cultural and work change in comparison to my previous work.


Grallo works as a travel partner with large festivals such as the Bacardi NH7 Weekender, the Great Indian Octoberfest, the goMAD. We also do weddings, corporate events….but enough of the pitch, let me tell you about goMAD.


A Mad Adventure


I was fortunate enough to travel with team for the goMAD Festival that happened in Ooty from 25th October to 27th October 2013.



The festival happened at the Fernhills Palace in Ooty which is situated on top of a hill and is spread over 50 acres.


The Palace


This palace was the summer residence of the Maharaja of Mysore and was built by Capt. F. Cotton in the year 1844. It is engulfed in greenery & fresh air, and there is a stunning valley flowing behind the palace.



The Artists


The festival had over 5o world class performances. Parvaaz, Sabelo Mthembu, Parikrama, Sky Rabbit, Prem Joshua and band, Amayama, Blot, Noori, the Ska Vengers, Sean Roldan and friends, the Shakey Rays and many more.



Time to Relax


Once the event was over, where I should add, we were working!  We thought of chilling out for some time at this resort named “Destiny” and below is a photograph of the view.  Words fall short to describe this natural beauty. I suppose it is no wonder that many of my friends are offering me a job swap. ;)
