Akko – A Medieval Mediterranean Gem

Akko – A Medieval Mediterranean Gem

I had won Cox & Kings’ Grab Your Dream Contest and the prize was an all-expenses paid trip to Israel. During this trip, I was also reviewing Canon 5D SR and EF 11-24mm f/4.0 USM. Here is just a small glimpse of this trip that appears in October 2015 Issue of India’s Premier Photography Magazine – Smart Photography. Akko – A Medieval Mediterranean Gem While we pride ourselves in having Varanasi as one of the oldest continually inhabited cities of…

Indispensable Travel Apps for Travelling Abroad

Indispensable Travel Apps for Travelling Abroad

    I use technology despite being from the times when analogue was the only watch and film was the only camera. I am sure there are many of us around who do that. Perhaps how I am different (or so I believe) is that I do so as if it is a second nature. I say that because I have never consciously given it enough thought to ever write about it. In today’s smartphone era, my iPhone 6 has…

Travel Fitness At Fifty-Five

Travel Fitness At Fifty-Five

I am not getting any younger and am travelling a lot. Lately, my travel has been a dilemma for me. While I enjoy it more than ever, I worry about food and exercise – or health in general – during my trips. Furthermore, an average bloke like me has limited, if any, understanding of complexities of calorie intake or outgo, heart rate, adequate rest, etc. More than anything, this lack of understanding always, I repeat, always leaves you worried about…

Round and Round in City Squares

Round and Round in City Squares

Round and Round in City Squares You can’t help it. All new cities you visit, you’ll end up going round and round in their city squares.  A city square defines a city. During my travels, a few that have impressed me are Tiananmen Square in Beijing, Main Square in Krakow, Red Square in Moscow and Covent Garden in London. I invited a few serious travellers to share their favourite city squares. Here’s their take!  Piazza San Pietro, Rome, Italy Simone Lye|The Aussie…

Travails of Solo Male Travellers

Travails of Solo Male Travellers

  This piece have been carried by ‘The Coffeelicious’ – a publication at Medium.Com Close on the heels of International Women’s Day, something strictly for folks with a keen sense of humour! Perhaps it is in vogue to talk about solo women travellers (SWTs). Perhaps they do face their fair share of issues during their travels. Or perhaps, the women’s lib movement has something to do with it. Lately, the blogosphere has been echoing with the humdrum cacophony of Solo…

Rambagh Palace by Taj, Jaipur

Rambagh Palace by Taj, Jaipur

This is NOT a paid review. I spent my own money for this stay. “There was a time when Elaborate was de rigueur. And a place where it still is.” That is how Rambagh Palace’s awards listing website describes this royal gem. A sprawling property, spread over 47 acre, Rambagh Palace by Taj, Jaipur, had humble beginnings. It was built as a hunting lodge way back in early 19th Century. Later, in 1920’s, it was expanded into the Royal Palace….
