Crossing The Sea To Reach Gili T.

May 25th, 2017|Asia, Bali, Destinations, Gili Trawangan, Indonesia, Lombok, Ubud|

Gili Trawangan certainly brings to mind a number of pleasant memories. In fact I often think of going back there. While people have different experiences on the island, I was glad to have visited its shores during the low season. While at most times Gili Trawangan is a popular destination for young tourists many people [...]

CELEBRATING KINGS DAY IN BANGALORE

May 22nd, 2017|Asia, Banagalore, Destinations, Europe, India, Karnataka, Netherlands|

Anyone who knows me knows about my fascination with all things Dutch. The obsession came into being after I visited Netherlands two years ago (Can't believe it has been so long!). That being said I land up pestering my best friend Janet for stories about the country. She is Dutch after all! Quite recently she [...]

The Annunciation Cathedral In The Moscow Kremlin

May 21st, 2017|Asia, Destinations, Moscow, Russia|

The sky was grey and the cold was biting but we were excited. We had just got our tickets and had made our way into the Kremlin. One of the stops that we made on our way was the Annunciation Cathedral.  If you’ve been to the Kremlin you will know that the Annunciation Cathedral is [...]

Life In A Sami Village In Murmansk Russia

May 20th, 2017|Asia, Destinations, Murmansk, Russia|

Murmansk was definitely one of my favorite places to be in Russia. In fact I still look back at those days with nostalgia. While most people don’t get why the idea of heading up to the Arctic fascinated me, I don’t really care. Life after all is about keeping myself happy and not some random [...]

Have You Crawled Through The Cu Chi Tunnels?

May 10th, 2017|Asia, Destinations, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam|

All through our journey in Vietnam, we had heard a lot of buzz about the famed Cu Chi tunnels. I guess that was one of the main reasons why we were determined to take a look at them when we finally made our way to Ho Chi Minh city. It took a while for us [...]

The Bangalore Cat Adoption Drive

May 9th, 2017|Banagalore, Destinations, India, Karnataka|

I often grumble that I have no idea what to do in Bangalore on the weekends. Being a part of the Bangalore Cat Squad however is something that I enjoy and it has led to a number of new friends and acquaintances. In fact if you had to look at it through my eyes then [...]

FROM BROMO TO IJEN: The Journey Begins!

May 4th, 2017|Asia, Destinations, Indonesia, Java|

Life is all about what you do and where you go. After an amazing couple of days at Mount Bromo, we were finally all set to head out to our next destination: Mount Ijen! Yes… Another volcano but this one spits out blue fire instead of ash and smoke.  Our journey from Bromo to Ijen [...]

The OWC Macaroon Workshop

April 28th, 2017|Banagalore, Destinations, India, Karnataka|

Bangalore often gets to me. I find it difficult to network and make new friends. That is a first for me. I usually make more friends than I can handle. I talk to almost everyone I meet. After 3 years in Bangalore the situation in my eyes was becoming scary. I was going to become [...]

VAN LONG: Ninh Binh’s Beautiful Illusion

April 22nd, 2017|Asia, Destinations, Ninh Binh, Vietnam|

We have never been people to waste a day when we have a precious few of them. That’s why we combined our visit to the Bai Ding temple with an excursion to the Van Long Nature reserve in Ninh Binh Vietnam. At first it looked like a short distance away from the Bai Dinh temple [...]

Paying A Visit To Cat Ba National Park

April 19th, 2017|Asia, Destinations, Halong Bay, Vietnam|

Cat Ba island in Halong Bay (Vietnam) has a lot to offer as far as trekking is concerned. The treks range from easy to difficult. I find this particularly good for trekkers  because the paths are then open for people with all kinds of experience. You can pick a trail that suits you quite easily. [...]
