  • Discovering Morocco

    Sitting somewhere on the northern tip of Africa, Morocco is a country resplendent in glorious architecture and endowed with a distinct landscape.

  • Along the shores of the Pacific

    Our initial plan was to embark on a train that travelled along the Ocean. I have crossed the Atlantic to travel to Europe and the Indian Sub-continent, but never had the experience of moving along Pacific, and that too, on a train.

  • In the land of the lion with the sword

    The island of Sinhala, or Sri Lanka as we know it today, is a country beautiful beyond expectations. The warmth of its people, the neat and clean roads, the delicious food - everything is impressive. Most surprising were the smiling faces of immigration officers at the airport.

  • Coasting in the clouds

    Bipa said she intended to use the long Eid holidays to just read books; Swarna was of the mind to listen to music somewhere in the hills, and Imran wanted to watch Satyajit Ray films under the shade of a tree—this was the variety of people that Nowroz was driving to Bandarban with.

  • How happy are you?

    For people living in Bangladesh, what can be said about this tucked-away sanctuary, unperturbed by the happenings around the world that has not already been said before? I visited Bhutan first as a ten-year-old and then again, much later in life. And would you like to know what had changed about this place in the fifteen years in between? Nothing!

  • Alternative 3-day itinerary in Singapore!

    Alternative 3-day itinerary in Singapore!

    We love this country! These are the clean streets our dreams are made of, the stringent grasp over political affairs that are figments of our fantasies, the shopping malls that we would love to have at our doorsteps, and oh the beautiful security of life!
