Fantastic Festivals and Carnivals Around the World

Visiting Rio during the Carnival time has long been on our list. We might get lucky to do it in 2016…who knows what the future holds and what pleasant surprises life can spring at you! Rio is far… the journey from India is long and expensive. Little did we know that until we get to Rio, there are other festivals that could be as much fun and are easier to get to! Thanks to Holiday...

How to Fall in Love with Paris…

…by Katie @ Second-Hand Hedgehog I fall in love quite easily. With places, that is. People are more difficult. Maybe that’s why I remained unsure about Paris for so long: this city is like an untamed person whose characteristics are impossible to pin down. On one hand it’s the city of lovers strolling along the banks of the Seine – but on the other hand, those same riverbanks are the site of squats and of...

Five Micro-States of Europe

…by Nahid Sultana Living in Europe for three years gave us the best opportunity to go around and explore every corner of this elegant continent.

Ankur and I want to visit Antarctica. Argentina is amongst the best places to take off to the relatively unexplored South Pole of the planet and we haven’t been there either!

Imagining the Argentinian glaciers is easier now …and we want to get there soon …as soon as we can save enough for the trip!...

Bhutan: Pretty Paro

Paro: Calm, laid back valley of Bhutan …by Girija MR Anyone travelling to Bhutan can’t miss Paro. They might skip Thimpu, the capital city of Bhutan. But they can’t miss Paro for two reasons.

Japan: Snow Monkeys in Japan

Snow Monkeys and Japanese Hot Springs …by Alok and Cara The Japanese are well known for their inventiveness – karaoke, Sony Walkmans and digital pets have undoubtedly changed the world. But for my money, the best Japanese invention of all time has to be the use of the onsen, or Japanese hot spring. If it sounds a little odd to take a hot bath with a bunch of strangers (albeit segregated by gender), you only...

Marrakech: Travelling back in time..

…by K Preetam I wanted to set foot in Africa, and the easiest and cheapest option available from the UK was Marrakech in Morocco. Getting a visa for Morocco was a hassle free process. I visited their embassy in London and obtained a visa on the same day. Where to stay? Medina is the old town area of Marrakech – a small quarter brimming with activity and culture. I want to mingle with the locals...
