A Ceylon Odyssey

I’m usually known to procrastinate specific things in life like exercise, collecting on finances and making phone calls among others, but I feel most guilty when I delay writing travelogues. From personal experience, I feel that the memories and trivia are most fresh within the week of returning from a trip, making it the opportune moment to pen it down for memory’s sake. It has been over two months to … Continue reading “A Ceylon Odyssey”


So it’s finally here.  Three days away from embarking on the Europe trip, I have dreamed of, spent hours researching, made multiple documents for, I’m brimming with excitement.  From the time that I land in Munich, to the time I take off from Milan, I’m sure I will think of nothing else.  And yes, a 32 GB memory card has been purchased for my camera.  Summer in Europe awaits. See … Continue reading “EU”

Day 11# Wanderlust

Travel! Now this is what I call exciting content. Ah, the thought is so refreshing. It has not even been a month that I’ve been back from my American vacation and am already itching to pack my bags and set off on another trip! In my mind, there are two distinct travel to-do lists. One is the achievable list and the other is the aspirational.  But this post is about … Continue reading “Day 11# Wanderlust”

The American Sojourn!

So it has been a week that I returned from the States and I’m not even close to wearing off the jet lag. Now that I’m actually feeling more like myself, an account is necessary. So where shall I start… Reetika, Richa and I know each other from the time that we went to college at SCMS-UG – around the time that the iPod classic first generation was in vogue. Through … Continue reading “The American Sojourn!”

Isla Mujeres

This little island off the coast of Mexico has been on my radar for a while. Ask me why? Because it is a part of the planet where nature puts up a spectacular display that is not only immensely fascinating, but ethereal.  Swimming with whale sharks. That’s what these Mexican waters have in store. Before you shake your head thinking that this is one of those things you’ve seen on … Continue reading “Isla Mujeres”

In a Paris state of mind..

So today I spent almost all day collecting and pinning pictures of the Eiffel Tower to a new board on Pinterest.   I saw the majestic structure in person when I was younger; along with some bikini clad Frenchwomen. But I can remember neither clearly.   Although the Tour De Eiffel has been a world landmark, there’s so much we do not know about it! For example, this beauty was … Continue reading “In a Paris state of mind..”

Glyph of Ink!

It is one of those things you put so much thought into. Years of contemplation. Umpteen number of searches. But from what I’ve seen, heard and experienced – it mostly happens on impulse. Yes, what I’m rambling about is a tattoo! In 2010, one fine morning Ankita walked out of the PG while we were asleep – and came back with a tribal pattern on her nape. Last year, on … Continue reading “Glyph of Ink!”

Cruising through…

Mobility is critical in the world we live in. Depending on others for any given thing is no less than imprisonment. The pangs are deeper when one lives an ‘independent’ life, has to take most decisions alone and is forced to battle through smaller and relatively large instances by themselves. It is almost criminal to not be self sufficient in most areas. Which brings me to how significant driving is. … Continue reading “Cruising through…”
