Hard to believe that this UNESCO World Heritage medieval town is just 260km away from London. Perfect for a weekend getaway, we made the most of our two days in Bruges.
The sun has got its hat on, hip hip hooray!
A staycation makes you enjoy the beauty and charm of your own city or country without having to venture out a great distance. The nice little stint at the Macdonald Bertyeside Hotel & Spa was that opportunity to teleport myself into the realm of the illusion of being far away from home.
If you’ve been following our travels on Instagram, Facebook and over here over the past few months, you’ll see we’ve planned to explore a few European cities this summer–we are done with Vienna in Austria and we’ve planned to do 3 more countries (Belgium, Poland and Luxembourg) within this month! And why not! London is the ultimate city from which to explore Europe, in all its glory. We are pretty much always within a short flight from every European city! Figuring out how to pack for this mini city breaks is a fun challenge (every single look was thought out in advance, because we could only take one cabin luggage as we usually travel in budget airlines within Europe- it’s convenient and economic). In this post, I’m passing on my packing secrets for mini city breaks to you.
You can mourn or silently moan, or you can drink, dance and get into a trance. You can bake, eat a cake or just simply throw a fake that you don’t care any longer when your birthday arrives and goes leaving you a year older. Shehzaad had his birthday on the 13th June and we decided to conquer the magnificent Mýrdalsjökull Glacier in south Iceland, the 4th largest of the country, on a snow-mobile! How is that for a birthday celebration? Given a choice of materialistic objects, gifts and galore – we always prefer to have experiences in such milestones of our lives. We believe the experience is what makes us wiser in life, not the mere numbers that turn on our birthdays.
When it comes to Indian ethnic clothes, I love the royal fabrics, rich colours and the intricate work, but can’t deny that they’re not the most comfortable to wear for long hours during hot summer days or nights.
Faith to each, festival to all and feast for your appetite! On the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, the largely celebrated Islamic festival marking the end of the fasting month, it is time to unleash your gourmand self. The dish that can very well be your flagship on the dining table can be the Murg Pulao which is an easy rice recipe made with chicken and aromatic spices.
