The parts I knew best about Switzerland were that of the stunning Swiss Alps and those made famous by a popular 90’s Bollywood movie called Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ). Haha!
When we planned our trip to Switzerland, it was to only explore Zurich and Lucerne. By some stroke of luck, we had an additional day to spare and had absolutely no clue what Continue reading “Lugano – Swiss Sunny Side Up!”
Iceland, you are beyond breathtaking. You are also the QUEEN of moody weather. For this very reason, packing for Iceland almost becomes a bit of a daunting challenge. I had so many “ifs” and “buts” while packing and trying to fit everything into the stipulated weight limit offered by WOW Air, that we ended up buying additional luggage the night before our departure. We couldn’t assess the weather because, to us, it looked like the weather changed her mind on an hourly basis. Continue reading “Iceland in September – Packing List!”
Another year has passed and I can’t help but wonder how fast the year has sped past on. Can you remember the first hour of 2018? I can like it was yesterday – and it was such a wonderful feeling ringing in the new year in a place I never thought I’d be. It was special, it was heart wrenching, it was amazing and it was sad. I’m a mixed bundle of emotions at New Year’s – the retrospection of the past year mixed with the exciting unwritten journey ahead makes my head spin in different directions. I remember bringing in 2018 thinking that this year was going to difficult but it was also going to be one of the best there was. Oh boy – I had no idea what I was in for. 😉 Continue reading “Another Year Gone By…”
Fear is a real struggle to overcome. Fear of talking in front of large groups of people, fear of heights and worst of all, fear of getting out of your comfort zone! The list can be loooong! Although, there’s an inexplicable joy in overcoming something that deabilitates you, the road to killing THAT fear is far from easy. It’s by doing those little things and taking those little steps that make you closer to tarnishing that beast called FEAR.
I’m afraid of a great many things – one of them being HEIGHTS *yikes*. I wouldn’t say I have acrophobia but when I’m at unusually high places, my knees go weak – LITERALLY! 😉 My legs begin to tremble and the ground beneath me feels like jello! It is this trepidation, that reaching the top of Angel’s Landing seemed like a monstrosity of an experience. Continue reading “Angel’s Landing : Zion National Park”
Sevilla is like a dynamite of a love affair – it sweeps you off your feet with an explosive BANG and makes you yearn for more! The warm sun, the smell of sweet oranges in the air, the food (oh the food! *drooooool*), the narrow winding alleys with the magnificent union of Mujédar and Baroque architecture lining the streets and the laid back vibes of the city is how I sum up Sevilla. There’s so much about Sevilla that surprised me – I knew people there are relaxed, but go out at 8am and their day hasn’t started, the roads are pretty much empty! Now that is what I call easy-going. Lunch can go on for hours – we didn’t realize the time fly by! So much of our time was spent eating Tapas and drinking Sangrias.
