The Monsoon Getaway- Part 1

I was going to begin with a funny poem to mark my return to blogging but when I searched for funny poems on comebacks and homecomings, I was bombarded with sickeningly happy ‘Back to School’ poems and it sent me straight home. Hehe…. Silly joke: √ Before writing this blog, I’d been wondering what to write as the “Comeback Post” and then my parents planned a … Continue reading The Monsoon Getaway- Part 1

The London Postcard

Let’s begin with a quote from the Paddington Bear himself: And honestly, I couldn’t agree more. My trip to London was inspired by many things.

Now, with the said number of countries on the itinerary, the whole tour was what I like to call a ‘flash tour’. … Continue reading Flash tour ft. Siem Reap

Postcards from Zeus

Travelling to Greece was an idea borne out of watching Disney’s Hercules and reading Rick Riordan’s fiction entwined with Greek mythology. In fact before visiting Greece, the only thing I pictured when I thought of the country was alabaster statues with empty eyes, philosophers and broken columns of stone. While the country has a lion’s share of the above elements, walking through its streets gives … Continue reading Postcards from Zeus
