A five star inn in Jaipur City Centre

It was the boxing-day and we could see that Christmas mood was still there at the Holiday Inn Jaipur. There was a 10 foot Christmas tree at the main door itself announcing proudly that it was still Christmas season. On entering we found an atrium as high as the building itself, all of seven storeys and from the top was a bunch of green string-lights arranged in a conical form giving a feeling of a 100-foot Christmas tree and below were several reindeer pulling their cart containing one of the biggest gingerbread house we had seen.

Asus Zenfone 3, Camera Features

Have you heard of the saying “All good things come in small packages!”?

As travel bloggers we travel a lot and take a lot of pictures. I had always wished that good cameras came in small packages that I could use in a jiffy and which also gave a reasonable result.

One day, ominous rain clouds had gathered and it had been threatening to rain again, in Mumbai. I was working in my study and just happened to see outside. The ethereal setting impressed me and I was just about to get up and get my regular camera that was … Read the rest
