If you are visiting Vienna, the Schonbrunn Palace is a must do. Infact, if you are in the city for one day only, this is possibly the attraction that you should visit, especially during summers when the palace gardens are green and flowers are blooming all around.
In 2014, Ankur and I gifted each other a trip to Kuala Lumpur for our anniversary. We figured out that our trip to KL would probably cost less that a piece of fancy jewellery, and we would make memories for life...something and both of us prefer to a glittering piece of metal. So, off we went...to spend a weekend in KL.
Most travellers bundle up Vienna, Prague and Budapest together in one trip. Some others, like us, land in Vienna, explore the city and then move on to further explore Austria. Whether you are exploring the capital cities of Europe or are spending more time in Austria, you will possibly end up spending two days in Vienna, which are enough to only get a glimpse of this city. There is so much to explore here - museums, palaces, music and opera, parks, shopping arena and of course, food. If you want to truly experience it all, you will need much more time than just a couple of days.
In August this year, I spent a week in Goa during the peak monsoons. When I headed out, I wasn't expecting much out of the trip. It was a solo trip...a trip without Ankur after quite a while. However, the monsoons made me fall in love with Goa and I am sure that I will revisit this state next year in either July or August.
Salzburg is a small town, with many attractions. But let not its small size fool you! There is enough and more to do in Salzburg to ensure that two days simply fly by; the city will make you want to stay on for another two days. There is music in the air and every little street in the Old Town seems to be singing a romantic song.
London is one of the great culture capitals of the world and home to some of the world’s best museums and galleries. The majority of these museums are free to the public, so if you are only stopping over for a few days or enjoying a long extended stay there is no excuse not to visit. So, we have made a list of what we believe are the top 5 free museums any visitor must experience.
The festive season is right here. Ticking the Bucketlist is ready to welcome Bappa with a guest post from a friend, who is an explorer at heart, a photographer by passion and a finance personnel by profession. Read on to track Ganpati's first journey - from the artist’s mind to the ‘pandal’ as expressed by Unmesh Sharma.
If I say that I love flying, I am sure you know that I am lying… As I enter the plane, The cleanliness freak in my mind becomes insane… All passengers will share the same air, With bacteria and virus piled layer over layer… I think, wonder and ponder, Whether my co passenger would be a grandpa, a grandma or someone younger… What if I am next to weird man, And I wish I could run...

Love and marriage are interesting topics to discuss, across cultures and countries. We had one such interesting conversation with a young man in Zanzibar, who was surprised to know that the 'arranged marriage' set up still exists in India. Well, it sure does...and it isn't a bad way to meet the love of your life, if you have the freedom to make a decision. Touch wood, six years and counting...Ankur and I are happy souls!
The first time I ever hear Mozart’s composition was in Tom and Jerry, when I was a little child. Till date, his symphonies remind me of the my carefree childhood days and make me smile. However, over the years, I have learnt to enjoy his symphonies as stellar works of art and for the genius that he was. Mozart was a child prodigy and grew up to share musical compositions with the world, that still ring loud and clear regardless of the years that have gone by.
