Week 34: Train Tales

Title: Train Tales  Location: Jaipur, India Date: 22 August 2015 “…Manzil se behtar lagane lage hain ye raste…”. Translation: the roads seem better than the destination. This photograph was clicked on a hastily planned train journey last weekend. Sometimes, it’s a good idea to travel spontaneously and see where it takes you. Impromptu travel can give you a fresh perspective, time to introspect and memories that last a lifetime.

Trip of a Lifetime: Kashmir, Leh, Ladakh: Part 1

Hello wonderful people and happy Sunday! I woke up feeling real good this morning. It could be because it’s Sunday, or because we have amazing (rainy) weather, or simply because today is the anniversary of my maiden trip to Kashmir, Leh, Ladakh in 2013. If I call Paris my teenage crush, then Kashmir is definitely my first love! I undoubtedly have the travel bug, I fall in love with places in an instant. I was 8 years old when I first discovered the beauty of Kashmir while participating in an art project. It was on my travel list for a long time before I finally got the chance to…

Sparkle #108: A Pink & Blue Summer

I am in love with two colors this summer: dreamy lavender pink and ice cold blue. There’s something about pairing pink and blue together, whichever shade or hue you might pick, it almost always works! And when you pair lighter shades of pink and blue, you get a palette which is fresh, happy and adds the perfect pop of color to a hot summer day. These two colors remind me of all things pleasant: cherry blossoms, cotton candy and Disney princesses! They have a surreal and vintage vibe to them, so make sure you pair these two whenever you want to channel your inner Cinderella! To celebrate my love for these…

Off we go again!

Location: Google Hyderabad Date: 22 June 2015 Aloha folks and Happy Monday! I have an interesting update for you today. The beginning of this year, I felt like all my travel plans were jinxed. Every trip I planned would fall apart and this continued until the Paris trip came along in May. I seem to have finally broken this jinx and am back to jet-setting around the world! I am traveling all of this week within India and will conclude the trip in one of my all time favorite cities – Mumbai (very similar to New York)! As much as I hate to do this, I won’t be able…
