Top 15 Things You Must Do in Mauritius

After my two visits to Mauritius, I maintain, Mauritius is one of those few places in the world you can fall in love with immediately… even before landing.

Mauritius, it’s a pleasure!

What makes it a pleasure is … Read the rest

The Crowning Jewel of Jaipur

Salman, the hotel representative, was waiting for us at the arrival area. Smartly dressed in his suit, he patiently holds up the placard high for all to see.

Ilocos in Pictures

Ilocos happened by chance.

I was supposed to go to Batanes, an archipelago province in The Philippines situated in the Cagayan Valley region. It is the northernmost province in the country, and also the smallest. As luck would have it, just few days before my trip, typhoon struck there and everything came to standstill. The damage was done. The flights were cancelled, so was the trip.
