Shaniwar Wada, Pune – Ruined ruins

Standing in front of Shaniwar Wada, I thought, Wow. I can’t believe this is the first post about Pune on our blog. Pune, is a city just 3 hours South West of our home in Mumbai, India. It was also my home for a few years through college and we often visit my family there. But we haven’t seen it through the eyes of a traveller and neither have we

Old Tailem Town: The Town Australia Forgot

“Would you like some more milk in that tea, dears?” she asked, her voice laced with sugar, hobbling ever so slowly towards us, hands trembling as she balanced two cups in their saucers. “No, that’s quite all right, thanks,” I hastily jumped up to take the cups from her. “So where you two from?” she asked, as she settled down in her chair. I gulped. How were we supposed to tell

The Thing About Paris

Paris. Probably the most visited tourist destination in the world. Probably the most romanticised, overhyped, extravagant cliché of them all. But I fell in love with Paris 10 years before I saw it for the first time. As a student of the French language, it was easy to fall in love with this utopian city that seemed to embody all things French. From the first time I learned to pronounce

5 solid reasons to drive through Australia

I don’t drive. So what on earth am I doing, writing about the joys of driving through Australia? Over the years I’ve returned to Australia for several road trips across various regions, always in the passenger seat. This summer (it was winter down under) I played navigator, videographer, backseat nagger and personal entertainer while Charles drove us across the Southern coast of Australia. Australia. The only reason I wish I could

Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur : The best view in the city

The Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur definitely enjoys the best possible location from where to enjoy the sights and shopping that the city has to offer. By best location I mean it’s right next door to the Petronas Towers and Suria KLCC Mall. Easy access in Kuala Lumpur doesn’t get better than this. Pulling up to the lobby, we wondered what a business hotel in the city centre would be like

Chinatown, Kuala Lumpur: A Walking Tour and Long Lunch

Of all the cities in the world that have a Chinatown, Kuala Lumpur is probably the one where it’s unmissable. That probably has a lot to do with the fact that Kuala Lumpur is more of a glitzy shopping destination than a cultural one with lots of sights and attractions.
