Bolivia: Packing Tips

Are you planning to visit the Salar-e-Uyuni and get some goofy pictures taken? Or do you intend to simply relax by the blue waters of Lake Titicaca on Isla del Sol, which is believed to be the birth place of the Sun by the Incas? If either of these, or both are on your bucketlist, is it evident that you are planning a trip to Bolivia. While the usual stuff will make its way into your backpack, here are few things that you must have while travelling within Bolivia. Make sure you stock up on all this at the local market in any of the Bolivian cities before you commence your soujourn.

Budapest …Best Vegetarian Restaurants

I had an awesome time sampling vegetarian food in Budapest. Here are five places that I enjoyed a good meal… Karavan: This is possibly the best and most reasonable place to have Hungarian street food. There is a vegetarian version of almost everything that is available.  You can try the local street food and well as fusion food.

Budapest…for the Vegetarian Soul

It is not very easy being a vegetarian in Europe. In Spain, when I say that I am a vegetarian, the waiters assume that I eat tuna and ham. 'Who does not eat tuna and ham?', is an oft asked question in Spain. I wasn’t expecting Budapest to be a vegetarian-friendly city, especially the local cuisine. I knew that I could find pizza places that would help me survive, but I assumed that the local Hungarian food would be meat dominated and I would end up eating pizza slices all the time that are good on the pocket but bad on the stomach.

Day Trips from Madrid

I often get emails from my readers seeking help to plan their Spanish itinerary. Everyone wants to run to the south of Spain and hardly anyone wants to stay in Madrid. Well, if you have the same thought, think again! Madrid and its surroundings have so much to offer that you can spend about a week exploring various sites around Madrid. While I am yet in the discovery phase, here are five-day trips that I would recommend from Madrid:

Rome: Visiting the Colosseum

Last month, I went to New York for an event and had a layover in Rome that lasted 7 hours. It didn't take any effort to decide that I will run from the airport to the Colosseum to tick this item off my bucketlist. And oh...did I run! From the airport to the Colosseum and back... I ran all the way! It was a crazy day and I rushed through things. That being said, I could still spend about 3 hours at the Colosseum and am so happy about it!

Flashback 2017

This post is a week late; we are almost a week into 2018. However, I could not find time to put things together as we were doing what we love to do most … traveling. To put an end to the 2017 travel calendar, here is the what the year that went by looked like… Bhutan: I went to Bhutan in 2006 and finally got the chance to revisit this lovely country.
