Bora Bora Beckons….Where Art Thou?
At times I find myself being possessed by Mr. Bean. And what’s so wrong with Mr. Bean also if the names of places were such that you would just want to go on repeating them like a moron again and again. Now take for example – Rabo. And now keep saying that name a million times to yourself. Like not slowly…go fast and there will be the place of your dream vacation spot. So, yes…go Rabo – Rabo – Rabo – Rabo – Rabo - Rabo – Rabo - raBO – bo-RA – Bora – Bora – Bora. Woah, yes that it is! The very first image to weave on someone’s mind would that be of a sultry spot nestled right in the heart of the Pacific. Well, am not on any honeymoon before you might think so. Like stereotypes are a little hard to put with at times. And one such false notion attached with the Bora  [...]

Trotting to Tanzania
Think of Tanzania, Think of Safari. This synonymous approach strikes nine out of ten people (you were one of them, weren’t you?) In the whole of Africa, animal habitat over here is the best than anywhere else. Nestled in the southern part of Kenya, Tanzania is known for its natural beauties and variedness. The cultural vibrancy of this exotic destination spans from the woods of the animal kingdom, the tribal folks inhabiting small villages to the leading urban parts of Tanzania.

Lost and Found in Lagos – Portugal
Spain may emerge as a snooty neighbor who sort of dominates over the picturesque Portugal, but even then the place doesn’t hold back from attracting a million travelers each year. Much like a proud feather in the cap of Europe, Portugal boasts a winding historic past and came to be discovered in the 15th century when Portuguese were on their way to find a route to hit the Indian shores. It is during that search for an access to Indian territories that marked the discovery of Portugal. A perfect vacation in the historic and archaic city would begin from cobblestone streets that meander in to the nooks where significant monuments and architectural styles vivid in the construction of the buildings paddle one back in nostalgia. The best way to explore the city is by hiring a bike on an hour basis  [...]

Casablanca: Relishing the Unconventionality
A wise man said: ‘My favorite destination is the place I’ve never been earlier.’ For those who find a life in the unconventionalities of monotony can definitely look forward to Casablanca. Not a tourist destination in the literal sense, but it is the fast pace along with a rich cultural heritage that sets the place apart. A lot of travelers embarking the Casablanca lands treat the place simply as a stop-over haven in between their flights or trains; however, Casablanca certainly deserves its due attention. Though, it is admitted that Casablanca may not be as exotic and vibrant as the many other cities of Morocco; but being the economic hub along with being the cultural epicenter, a trip to Casablanca is sure to be unique in its own right. Not entirely a vacation spot, but to spectacle  [...]

Cast under the Spell of Cambodia
Cambodia is generally underestimated and ignored when it comes to the travel front. A trip to Cambodia most certainly has to include the key destinations of Angkor Wat, Phnom Penh and also the pristine Mekong Rivers. A vacation to Cambodia, as the place is further explored unraveling the wraps of fascination, is marked by tours to places like Sisophon, Battambang, Kep and Sihanoukville. Although, once viewed as a notorious and perilous place, ever since then, Cambodia is in the process of establishing itself as a rather more tourist-friendly destination and fostering a friendly travel experience opening a gateway for people from varied origins to learn about the culture and history of Cambodia by coming here. As seeing is believing, maybe this is how steps are taken to over rule the infamous  [...]

Going down the Memory lane in Malacca
Nestled in Malaysia, Malacca truly comes about as one of the most singled out locales, especially those who prefer to time travel to places with a streak of historic enigma. The city of Malacca boasts long winding past down the pages of history as an important port center. The rich heritage and undiluted legacy along with spectacles of some of the greatest architectural figures is what earns a Malacca its unique and peculiar look. The gastronomic affair of this Malaysian state is hard to miss, as one can sample some of the greatest culinary experiences, which can be attributed to the cultural melting pot which also boils its influence on the cooking pot. Since, this beautiful town of Malacca is located on the Strait of Melaka also known as the Selat Melaka, the history has it that Malacca  [...]


Outer Hebrides, inner peace

Outer Hebrides, inner peace
So you like jokes, right? Excellent, I’ve got one for you. So there’s two professors at a conference and one of them is a Spaniard and the other is Gaelic. As icebreakers go, the Spanish professor decided to ask the Irishman if there was a Gaelic word similar in use to mañana. The Hebridian porfessor pondered over this for a minute while scratching his salt and pepper beard and said that the Irish have five words similar to mañana but none of them are quite as urgent as that. We apologise for not getting things off to the best start possible, but rest assured that this is not an assessment of two languages and their merits. It is instead meant to be indicative of the languid way of life that is to be had in the Outer Hebrides and we hope you appreciate that more than the joke. The morning  [...]
