Italy by train

Europe proudly boasts of its wide rail network and rightly so. We travelled the entire western Europe by train and had the most amazing time doing that. The best part is, trains are one of the cheapest and fastest modes of transportation in Europe.

Experiencing the best of Brussels for FREE

I had an impression, for only god-known reasons, that Brussels is an unusual vacation destination. I expected a low key city vibe, dispersed tourists mainly comprising of the backpacker species. Maybe a restaurant here and there, a few decent shops and some handcarts selling waffles. Hoping to imbibe the World War history, I headed towards Brussels.

we traveled lands afar.

A charming little town flanked by historic buildings from the Roman era, that’s Bath for you. Be it a weekend getaway or an impromptu roadtrip, Bath lives up to your expectations of an English town.

The Most Romantic Things to do in Paris

“How would you like to be
Down by the Seine with me
Oh, what I’d give for a moment or two
Under the bridges of Paris with you”

The Ultimate Travel Guide to Paris

If I had a nickel for every time I saw a romantic movie scene shot in Paris, I’d be a millionaire! Seriously though, there’s something about Paris that resurrects the dormant romantic in you.
Paris travel plans are always exciting especially for the first timers who can’t wait to get up the Eiffel Tower. Traveling to a destination like Paris should be, in my opinion, smooth and surreal. It should feel like the dreams you’ve been having about a Parisian escape.
