Salta-Jujuy

Salta & Jujuy region in the northwest of Argentina, bordered by Bolivia and Chile, is a wee bit off the tourist track.

The sparsely populated region has some exceptional ...

Buenos Aires

Category : Urban

(This is the first in our series of posts from South America) Buenos Aires was our entry into Argentina and to the continent of South America. It is a large, spread-out city with a decidedly European feel to it. It doesn’t give an immediate buzzing metropolitan vibe – but don’t let that fool you, it is a huge city of 14 mil...

Iceland : 12 Day Roadtrip

Category : Driving

There is very little ice to be found in Iceland in summers, despite the name. (conversely, there is very little greenery – and a lot of ice – to be found on Greenland, all through the year). Instead, Iceland has a few active volcanoes, some boiling-water-spewing geysers, scalding steam vents and innumerable hot springs. ...

Think Alps and we Indians get images of Switzerland in our head – snowcapped peaks, lush green meadows, cow bells, Shahrukh & Kajol etc etc. However, the Alps range stretches halfway across Europe – from France, across north of Italy, Switzerland (of course), the tiny country of Liechtenstein, Germany & Austria.

Český Krumlov, Czech Republic

Category : Historical, Urban

The first time I heard of this picture-postcard town, it was in a small blurb in the Indian magazine Outlook Traveller. Back then (5-6 years ago), international travel was very rare for us and this name was just filed away in some corner of my head.

We know exactly what to expect in a France or a England or Italy or Netherlands or Switzerland. They are still very beautiful and special, but they are mi...

Renault LiveLodgycal in Goa

Category : Driving

I am sprawled in the super comfortable seats of the Lodgy with the back reclined to the max, like a sleeper seat. There is enough legroom that I can stretch my 5’10” frame almost straight while lying down. It is raining hard outside and there is the melodious pitter-patter of rain falling on metal. The vipers are fighting valiant...

A true melting pot of the East and West, Turkey is recently being credited as the cradle of human civilization (Göbekli Tepe – supposedly the site where organized religion started – as well as first cultivation of wild ...
