Cycle Cambodia with Social Cycles – Voluntourism meets Fitspiration

#ridewithpurpose  Get educated, get fit and get inspired. As travellers there’s so much we get from the world. Knowledge, wisdom, friends, sights, sounds, tastes, smells; there’s no dearth of experiences that find a way to touch us in a way that changes us forever. But when those same travels let you give back to the places you visit, to the people who open their home to you; it’s incredibly meaningful.

A Disturbing Visit to the Museum of Torture Montepulciano, Italy

Museo del Tortura. Museum of Torture Montepulciano. We chanced upon a sign in a little street just off the main Piazza while walking through the tiny little Tuscan town of Montepulciano. It started pouring, and we popped in for shelter, but to be honest, we were also a little intrigued. If you’re easily disturbed, I would strongly suggest you DON’T read further. (I can’t believe we’re literally telling our readers

SWIG Hip Flask – Will travel for tipple 

The Swig Hip Flask that was recently added to our travel kit, couldn’t have come at a better time in our lives. At Different Doors, we enjoy having a good drink every now and then. I, probably more than Revati. And among our favourite things to do when we travel is to sample the local tipple. But as we find ourselves going off the beaten path ever so often, it

Satpura National Park – India’s understated safari experience

When I think back to my time in the jungles of Madhya Pradesh, it isn’t the tigers of Bandhavgarh or the romance of Kipling country that stands out vividly. It is a lesser-known, far more feral land that does. A raw tract of immense riches. One that lacks the popularity of resorts and lodges swarming with tourists. Instead, it exudes a silent sophistication that supersedes anything man- made. The land that introduced

Our Pick of Top 10 Beautiful Souvenirs from India

Ours is the exotic land of ancient knowledge, Mughal riches and exotic spices. Why shouldn’t our souvenirs reflect this magic? Luxury Souvenirs from India. Does such a thing even exist? Shopping for souvenirs in India used to be anything but fun. We were so jaded by our multiple, highly unsuccessful trips to the usual souvenir shopping spots in Mumbai – Cottage Industries, Colaba Causeway etc. All we would find were the

3 Days in Bucharest – First impressions on a work trip

I love what I do with my day job and while I’m usually smiling through the long hours, pressure and blink-and-its-here deadlines, there are a few surprises that make me smile even more. Travel. Anyone who knows me knows I spend a lot of time travelling between cities because of my advertising career. I’m greeted on most flights with a, ‘Welcome back Mr. Victor’, the coffee guy at the departure lounge gets

I’ve been nominated to the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers by the lovely Natasha (The Boho Chica) whose blog (and style) I absolutely adore!

10 Ways to Make Your Home Feel Like a Luxury Hotel

We love discovering beautiful destinations, cultures, cuisines, sights, nature and history. And while we’re at it, we also love discovering beautiful hotels. There’s something wonderfully relaxing, luxurious and indulgent about hotels, isn’t there? While we love travelling, we also love staying put, as we explained when we said Don’t Quit Your Job, And Travel. Seeing as we spend a considerable amount of time in it, we figured, why not make your home
