Our journey till Paris had pretty much satisfied my inner child and the palpable excitement had gradually reduced to be replaced by thoughts of home. The novelty of being in Europe in summer had died by the time we reached Belgium and yet I must say, if you are ever in two minds about visiting this country- DON’T BE! I was skeptical about Belgium when I made my itinerary and boy was I wrong! Beer...

When I had put Vienna on my itinerary, I was aware of its apparent charm and the hype around its architecture. So, as I started Instagramming accounts that had pictures of the streets and the insides of museums or cafes, my curiosity and excitement grew. The city looked unrealistic and so much opulence in one place seemed bizarre to even imagine. So, by the time I did reach Vienna, I had already b...

Our Prague trip ended with a beautiful meal at a café facing the famous and largely overrated tourist spot, the Astronomical Clock Tower. Vidhi and I collectively spent a whopping 28 euros which I questioned as I walked back to our hotel. Something you just cannot do in Europe, think about the cash outflow. Our next destination was Budapest and our train was early the next morning. Vidhi had pract...

When you book a flight almost 6 months in advance so you can comfortably save on money and when that airline just happens to collapse, there isn’t much you can do but spend some time moping around about your losses, wallowing in self-pity for the credit card bills that are bound to pile up and the unavoidable situational crisis that ensues. So, when I had to book another flight for Prague from Bom...

A wonderland to romanticise for a lifetime.

I have to be honest, I spent a good part of my life till now just dreaming about Paris and the possibilities that come with walking down streets where artists like Van Gogh resided. A place that is home to Claude Monet, Gustave Klimt and Audrey Hepburn. A city that gleams in your mind probably a tad bit more than it can ever do so in reality. I mean what...

There is absolutely no denying the fact that we are all extensively addicted to our mobile phones. I am one of those people who would like to frown upon kids for being so dependent on a device but when you yourself are that person, you cannot exactly preach what you do not practice! I also have a lot of work on social media and a part of my monthly income can be attributed to the addictive behavio...

What does it take to be a writer? I have often been asked more often than I would like if writing feels like hard work or am I just sitting in a café, day dreaming gloriously and the words pour out just as deftly as the tea pours from pot to cup. This comes with the realization that I am doing things that people feel require no effort at all, no complaints there though, effortlessly getting paid i...

Lorelai: “OK, you’ve been in this mood for a week now and while I love the unexpected ups and downs of motherhood, I’ve got to say I’m tired of Goofus and I’d like my Gallant back.”

Rory: “You can’t just say a normal sentence, right? Just ‘Hey, let’s talk’ is too dull for you.”

When I first came across the show Gilmore Girls, I brushed it aside assuming it to be a boring, avoidable tale of two women...

The second half of the trip was dedicated to Rishikesh and my entire purpose of taking this trip was to indulge in bungee jumping on the day of my birthday. Bungee jumping is an exhilarating, once-in-lifetime experience and the rush you feel as you take the plunge is nothing similar to any kind of adventure you have possibly had. Maybe giving the CA examination and waiting for the result comes clo...
