Maribor: the grapevine says it all!

It all started during the summers of 2014. Our plans for visiting Croatia have always been getting postponed, until then, due to long driving hours. But we finally did survive. The drive to Split from Heidelberg is almost 1200 km, and needless to mention every two-hundred kilometres unfold a new story. Before beginning our two-week long trip…

“… 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. It was the summers of 2013, and we found ourselves hitting the autobahn to Prague. Here is Prague through the lens of our iPhone camera….

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…

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…

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…
