Sergiev Posad: Day Trip from Moscow

When I was chalking out the itinerary for Russia, my intention was to explore the entire Golden Ring, which is a ring of about seven cities located in the North East of Russia. These cities are: Vladimir, Suzdal, Kostroma, Yaroslavl, Rostov-Veliky, Pereyaslavl-Zalessky and Sergiev Posad. However, with the little time I had, Sergiev Posad was the only town on the Golden Ring that I finally visited...

Aeroflot: Airline Review

I am back after a fun week in Russia. I flew from Delhi (India) to Moscow (Russia) on an Aeroflot aircraft. Tickets to Moscow were cheaper on Turkish Airlines, but I chose Aeroflot as I was told that getting the visa might be an issue if I am not booked on Russia's national carrier. So, despite reading some terrible reviews about Aeroflot, I still went ahead and booked my flight. Here is my review...

Moscow City Tour

Usually, I like to do a walking tour of any city that I visit. I plan my itinerary such that this tour is the first thing that I do in the city. This acts as an introduction to the city and helps me figure out which attractions I would like to revisit. While I was in Moscow, I decided to hop on to the ‘Moscow City Tour’ and figure out what the city has to offer, besides the Kremlin and the Red Square.

Souvenir Shopping in Moscow: Izmailovsky Market

I have a list of things that I need to bring back from every country to complete our 'Home Sweet Home'. Our abode has a Turkish lamp from Istanbul, an ostrich egg from South Africa, a carved wooden door from Zanzibar, bright red clogs from Netherlands, floor carpet from Oman, papyrus paintings from Egypt... the list goes on. It truly looks like a travellers house! Obviously, on the list was 'Matryoshka Dolls from Russia'. Now that I was in Russia, I just had to pick up a set.

South Vietnam (Saigon) – Four Day Itinerary

Saigon, also known as Ho Chi Minh City, is the biggest city in Vietnam. Obviously, there is a lot of activity... scooters whiz past, vendors sell fresh fruits, locals sip on coffee... all in the wake of modern day construction. I spent three days in Saigon, which were enough to get a feel of the place and see the main attractions. Here is my four day itinerary...

Bhutan: Interesting Facts

There is so much about this little land locked country that will give you a new perspective to life. Ankur and I spent a week in Bhutan, in the beautiful valleys, counting sheep during the day and stars at night. What a wonderful week it was! We would love share a little bit about the country that we learnt during this time...

Vietnam: Life after Death

I just got back from Vietnam. I would have loved to spend longer in the country, primarily to learn more about its people, who have fought wars and have tilled fields. There is so much to learn from the Vietnamese ... war tactics, the desire to live, the strength of one's beliefs. In the little time that I had, I got a small peek into the beliefs of the locals. What intrigued me the most was their belief in life after death and traditional practises that carried out to appease the deceased. Read on to know what spiked my interest...
