The much awaited…

“The oh-so-yummy Glühwein, x-massy cakes, delicious chocolate crepes, lavish dinners” flashed when a bottle of Glühwein came to my sight while cleaning our wine cellar this weekend and instantly I found myself in the Winter Dreamland. The sweet fragrance of cinnamon-flavoured Glühwein rules the atmosphere then. The otherwise gloomy grey surroundings suddenly metamorphises into a colourful bright…

Hallmark of Luxury

The hallmark of luxury, a symbol of romanticism, a heaven on earth, an inspiration to many that is what Neuschwanstein Castle is. A perfect fairy-tale castle which has been an inspiration to one of our childhood favourite Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty. Hardly, in my childhood, would I have imagined that there exists an original piece of marvellous art, architecture…

Elegance redefined

Nine yards of elegance or as I would call it ‘elegance redefined’. And that is a SARI. A sari is an elegant piece of female attire in South Asia. It varies in length from 5 to 9 yards, varies in types of cloths, colours, knits, patterns and also the styles of drapes. People always ask…

Cakeology II

A friend with her almost three-year old princess came to invite us for her li’l one’s birthday. And when they left, the only views in the history-icon of our television that we had were the Peppa Pig series 😉 Readers, to my surprise, I had never imagined the small details that these cute little sweet angels look…

A driving extravaganza- Cote d’Azur

Camera Action Roll! oops! FLASHBACK Year: 2013 Season: Spring  Month: May Destination: Cote d’Azur/ French Riviera The two of us along with an other couple-friend, started our driving tryst towards the south of France. We took an off usual route including Heidelberg-Switzerland-Italy-South of France instead of directly driving into France and then driving down south. The long…

Romancing the Skies of Switzerland- I

“Even the blue skies of Switzerland are so differently coloured that one cannot help but get lost in the picturesque landscape.” I said to my husband as we drove through this mystically photogenic, naturally beautiful country. I have mentioned earlier that our drive from Heidelberg to Rome was ‘interesting’ in my post ‘Rome was certainly…

The city beautiful…Vatican City

When on a trip to Rome, a visit to the beautiful enchanting Vatican City becomes inevitable. A few glimpses of the Vatican City’s mesmerising art-work and sculptors are here. I have no words for the beautiful, mesmerising, glorious, splendid work of art here. I would rather leave it to you, dear readers, to explore and appreciate it even…

“Rome was certainly not built in one day!”

“Rome was certainly not built in one day” came to my mind when I visited the city. The kind of grandeur in architecture and richness in culture it has, is definitely a result of centuries put together. We both like driving, however, this trip became quite an experience. So after an interesting 15 hours drive from…

Berlin – Then and Now!

Our craze for the ‘City of Design’ is never-ending and that is the reason why we have visited it twice. Berlin, as a city, completes a full circle in terms of what it offers. It has culture, cuisine, art, technology, history, tourism, medicine and health, infrastructure, architechture, corporates, media, education, night life, festivals, recreations and…

Vienna – Lights, camera, action!

Once upon a time, on a cold Christmas evening, there was a princess who wished to walk through an aisle, well illuminated, along with her prince charming. The story unfolds itself through the camera of my iPhone. As they promenaded along the city streets, they kept spreading more smiles on the glittering faces all around. This trip to…

London – “For the Love of your jeans girl,…”

“For the love of your jeans girl, stop eating.” I said to myself yesterday, when I was trying to slid into my new pair of jeans. A spontaneous trip, to explore the city on a completely different parameter: a culinary delight. Day 1:It was a Saturday evening and we started our culinary expedition with T.G.I.Friday’s…
