Sharing 16 UNESCO Sites of 2016 in My Hundredth Post

Sharing 16 UNESCO Sites of 2016 in My Hundredth Post

Soon, we will all be celebrating the onset of 2017. Before 2016 bids goodbye, I have another milestone to celebrate – I am scoring a century! Yes, that’s right. This is my hundredth post. I wanted it to be a landmark in more ways than one. Hence, I decided this post would be about the UNESCO World Heritage Sites I visited during 2016. Coincidentally, there are 16 of these! Instead of keeping this post chronological, I am going to mix…

A Tucked-Away Town – Gammelstad

A Tucked-Away Town – Gammelstad

My story, A Tucked-Away Town – Gammelstad, has appeared in October 2016 issue of JetWings International – the in-flight magazine for international sectors of Jet Airways.

Bofors Gun – The Inside Story

Bofors Gun – The Inside Story

The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach!

After TBEXStockholm, VisitSweden had organised a 2-night/3-day fam trip to Luleå for us. In Gammelstad, a restaurant we dined in blew my mind! This is an account of that experience by a non-food blogger! Here’s a candid admission (and the food-lovers are welcome to shower me with brickbats) – I normally do not write about food.
