Bywater Street: London’s Candy Corner

All smile because the sun is out, all spring up because the spring is in the air. To bypass the grey and gloomy winter out of the calendar, I stepped out wearing the spring palettes and headed to the West London gem at Bywater Street in Chelsea. Year in year out, the houses of Bywater Street continue to hold on the vibrant pastel colours they have been painted with, but especially when its spring time, this cul-de-sac shines in all its colourful tones.

Winning Wines of Chile: Santiago Vineyards Sip Trip

A sure shot way to chill out in Chile would be to spend half a day at the wineries right on the outskirts of the capital Santiago. Flanked by the Andes in one side and the mighty Pacific on the other, the Chilean territory is a winery paradise with ideal temperatures, soil quality, wind and moisture needed for quality grapes to be produced.

5 Favourite Travel Moments of 2016

As they say that you should not count the years with the number of days in a calendar year. As the pages flip into another year, it is supposed to increase the number of years you have been around. Why quantify this wonderful life we have when we can amplify its value by not counting the days and years but by creating and counting precious experiences and memories every moment. Before the start of 2016, we gave our readers a sneak peek here of our travels plans for the year. We successfully ticked off most of the destinations from our list except a few towards the last quarter of the year which we could not complete, especially to give priority to visiting family related travels. May be it was important to slow down, pause and reflect for a while before refuelling and relaunching ourselves anew for 2017!

Musing in the Mews

Why do some leaves turn red during autumn? Is it because they are angry at the prospect of an incoming chilly winter soon precipitating their decoupling from the mother trees?

Fly Smarter In A Long Haul Flight!

“Travelling leaves you speechless,

Then turns you into a storyteller.”- Ibn Battuta

While you’ll be reading this post, I find myself sitting in another long haul flight from London to New Delhi. I’ve experienced a fair amount of time in the air at both ends of the planes, and I can vouch for it that with very little preparation well in advance can actually revolutionise how you feel up in the air and at the end of your journey!

Krakow doesn’t want to let you go. After an emotionally heavy tour of the Auschwitz and Birkenau Death Camps, we returned to Krakow to enjoy the remaining sunshine before we wanted to take up the train to Warsaw.
