Sparkle #200: Colorful Buildings I Want To Visit

Color always makes me happy!  I go crazy with the camera when I spot a multicolored building during my travels. There are many wonderfully constructed, artistic, multi-hued buildings around the world – a testament to the amazing talent of creative artists everywhere. For today’s post, I thought I would share pictures of 30 odd colorful buildings which really caught my attention while browsing the web. You will be delighted and mesmerized by the gorgeous colors, beautiful designs and the interesting ideas which led to the creation of these masterpieces. Each building has a story behind how it came to be – some were built with the concept of color and art…

Sparkle #192: Incredible India!

India – the land of multiple sights, sounds and experiences. A country which belongs to both the rich and the poor, the old and the young alike. This is the same place where you will find something as enchanting as the Taj Mahal, and something as depressing as the polluted river Yamuna. People here can be extremely helpful and friendly, or they can be really good con artists who will not shy away from making an extra buck off a gullible tourist. Brimming with diverse but complementary cultures, India can be loud, exaggerated and overwhelming for anyone. But once you spend some time here, it becomes easy to spot a method to it’s madness,…

Sparkle #186: The Rainbow Mountains of China

Look at the above image carefully. This photograph of brightly colored mountains seems surreal, almost as if it were a painting. It seems like something I would draw in my art class with a bunch of bright colored crayons. But this picture is very real – these rainbow mountains actually exist! These mountains form the landscape of the Zhangye Danxia National Geological Park in China’s Gansu province. How did Mother Nature create this wonder? From what I understand as a layman, this is the result of several years of erosion and folding of layered rock and mineral crust. If you want to dive…

Sparkle #181: Love and Longing for NYC

My travel wishlist is forever growing. As I add on new destinations every year, I also keep some time to visit places which have endeared to me on my previous travels. As a traveler, you sometimes discover cities and towns which feel familiar, almost like they belong to you and you belong to them. It’s a little like falling in love – each time you set foot in this place, you feel happy, calm and at home. At the same time you feel excited and energized, ready to take on whatever the world throws at you with new vigor and enthusiasm. New York for me,…
