Rann Utsav Tent City: A night in the Kutch desert

I woke up with a start at 3 am. Someone, or something had turned on the lights in my tent. I looked up at the lamp overhead as it swayed ominously in the wind. It was loud. How had I been sleeping through this ruckus?, I thought to myself as the windows of my tent flapped loudly and noisily against the canvas. The poles holding my tent in place creaked

Why Travelling is Like Falling in Love

It’s that time of year, when our newsfeeds are flooded with red roses, pink hearts, pairs of champagne flutes and loads of other Valentines Day iconography ranging from the obscene to the tacky. For us however, it’s just another day. No it’s not because we’re the too-cool-for-school kids that shun romance. No it’s not because we’ve been travelling as a married couple. But simply because we’re both in love (and

Topkapi Palace: Istanbul – Intricacy at its best

It’s so difficult to choose which of Istanbul’s historical avatars appeals to us the most. There are stories of riches and rags. But Topkapi Palace definitely pushes Constantinople to the top. The seat of Ottoman Sultan Mehmet naturally had to enjoy the best location with views of the Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn, all at once. I’d heard so much about the beautiful blue Iznik tiles (which I

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

What do travel bloggers do on holiday?

As travel bloggers holidaying is the last thing we do when we travel. You may see our Facebook and Instagram timeline flooded with idyllic images of sunsets and beaches, But that doesn’t mean we were laying back, umbrella drinks in hand. Those photographs are the result of early mornings spent sweating in the sun and then slaving away at the laptop into the wee hours. Seeing as we also have full
