Zanzibar: Costs and Budget

We spent one week in Zanzibar - we soaked in some sun...I did a couple of dives and Ankur slurped on many cocktails. We also did a lot of fun activities together like visiting running behind butterflies, photographing monkeys and swimming with dolphins. For those who are planning a fun filled vacation to this African gem, with plenty of sun and surf, here is what our expense sheet looked like….

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...
