A day trip to Montenegro

Everyday of our travel during our holiday this time, my first thought after waking up in the morning has been ‘Is it raining??’ It’s been that kind of a weather till now but we have been relatively lucky. Not raining at important times. Both in Zagreb and Dubrovnik. No rain today too. But no sun…

Old Town Dubrovnik

The best part about travel is that every new place that you go to has it’s very own uniqueness and charm. While Zagreb was calm and quiet and the perfect destination for a cool relaxed holiday, Dubrovnik is where the action is. And so is the crowd with the arrival of cruise ships everyday. Come…

Traveling on to Dubrovnik..

When you talk about Croatia, you first think of Dubrovnik. And there are enough reasons for that. But for us our happiness, more than the stories, was about traveling back to the sea.

Our travel in Zagreb

While returning back to our hotel last evening after a wonderful walking tour, we decided to wander. On a tram, through the city and beyond.

It’s blue, Zagreb, Croatia

Zagreb airport is a very small one with our flight being the only one as we landed. The immigration took fifteen minutes. Our wait for the checked in baggage was another five minutes and soon we were out through the green channel. Exchanged some Euros, bought a cigarette lighter and looked around for our chauffeur….

Upasana Resort, Shantiniketan

It’s a place you would love to go back to. Again and again.. Shantiniketan Express reached Bolpur at 12.30 PM. It was dot on time and I was impressed.

Pahalgam, Kashmir

We checked out from our hotel after breakfast. Shabir, our chauffeur had already arrived. I had booked the hired car through a travel operator before reaching Srinagar.
