A day in Milan

“Once Milan flows through your veins, it’ll flow forever in your blood”- Rui Costa. It was only today when I realised that I have yet not written anything about Milan. Having visited Milan at least thrice in the past couple of years, either for a quick shopping spree or as a lunch pit-stop between long…

Philadelphia…xoxo!

Hello Readers. Spring is finally here after a long wait this year. Yesterday, as I sat myself, with a cup of Cafe Latte, on our terrace garden and turned the pages of our photo album from last year (it is fun maintaining a print photo album in this digital era too) memories of Philadelphia’s beautiful…

“… a diamond among the pearls”- Anynymous.

“If European cities were a necklace, Prague would be a diamond among the pearls” – Anynymous. My dear readers, at times, it is the best to start a post with a quotation.

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…
