Hola from Spain !!
We landed in Segovia last evening. It is a beautiful quaint town. We are staying in a Parador on the top of a hill which overlooks the whole town which also has a very beautiful castle. Probably we’ll visit this castle tomorrow.

Since it was a sunny day, we did not want to waste any time and headed straight to the town and walked … Read the rest

The undisputed king of the road, Jeepney is the most popular means of public transport in the Philippines. They were originally made from US military jeeps left after World War II and hence the name.

I like the name. I find it very cute, very Indian. 😀

Mannequins in headscarf

On my first trip to the city, I stumbled on these mannequins while walking around in a shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur. I stepped back and stared at them. The look of these mannequins was a surreal resemblance to human beings, perhaps because they were dressed with headscarf. Later I found, there are many shops with dressed up mannequins with the headscarf.

By the time you read this post, I would have reached Haridwar & if possible, Rishikesh.

Yes, you read me right. I am trying my luck once again for valley of flowers. Last year when we left Mumbai, the weather was good, health was perfect but I guess the time was wrong. Right from Haridwar we were surrounded by Kavari’s who were also moving towards Rishikesh. The crowd did not let us … Read the rest

First woman to visit from India !

Nearly 4 years back, I had landed at a small place in Thailand at the fall of the dusk. Room hunting was my first priority before it got too dark and after walking a bit fortunately I saw a guesthouse on the main road itself. Only two rooms were vacant on the 1st floor. After checking both the rooms, I chose the cheaper one. The other one had a TV and a small balcony. I did not want any of those.
At times I am so careless that now, while writing his post, I realize that I had checked the … Read the rest

Enough of South-East Asia. For this week’s moment, let us go to Europe. 🙂

The Atomium has to be one of the most unusual structures in the world. Situated on the northern outskirts of Brussels, it symbolizes a crystallized molecule of iron by the scale of its atoms, magnified 150 thousand million times !!

Two years back I saw it for the first time in Seremban, Malaysia and immediately fell in love with it. I marveled at the bold red color that had overshadowed the typical greens. The rustling sound of its leaves had caught my attention and I so wanted to possess one.
I stopped and yes, you guessed it right. I clicked pictures. 😀

Well, I couldn’t imagine a bamboo tree like that! It was much … Read the rest
