My Journal: Rome Day 1 – The Vatican, Gelato, Innamorati, Punto et al

Roam with me… In Rome… Roaming is exactly how one must experience Rome. Apart from the much trodden touristy paths that constitute the Vatican, the Colosseum and the Fontana di Trevi there is so much more to this historic city than meets the eye and can be discovered only when you aimlessly wander the lanesContinue reading “My Journal: Rome Day 1 – The Vatican, Gelato, Innamorati, Punto et al”

My Journal: First Timers in Rome – Fiumicino to Termini

Take me to Rome, I said to myself… And so when I got the opportunity to travel to Europe, I chose Roma (in Italian) as my first destination. The Schengen Visa process is nuts but well I am sure there are countries in the world that sure make things a hell lot more difficult.

I do this every time I amContinue reading “7 Things To Do in Pondicherry”

Destination: Pondicherry

A few years ago my sister and I made a pact… We decided that every year we would take a trip just the two of us, to a destination that both of us had never been to and to mark the beginning of the deal we zero-ed onto Pondicherry… A Little About Pondicherry A UnionContinue reading “Destination: Pondicherry”

Europe – One Country At A Time

I hold a corporate job that hypothetically is 9 to 5, but in reality spans more on the lines of 9 to 9… That and limited vacation days make it next to impossible for me to carve out a chunk greater than 7 – 10 days to simply travel… One reason why my colleagues andContinue reading “Europe – One Country At A Time”

When in doubt, Travel!

Travel means different things to different people… To one it symbolises the coming of age while to another it may be as simple as taking a well deserved vacation. I know of a few to whom traveling is a luxury that they indulge in once in a while, while I also know of a fewContinue reading “When in doubt, Travel!”
