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

Top 5 Things to do in Bhuj, India

If you’re travelling around India, chances are you’ve got visiting the White Desert in the Great Rann of Kutch on your list.

The Great Ocean Road Guide

Note: As I sit here to write this out, I’m feeling thankful we did two rounds of prep while planning our drive on the Great Ocean Road. Charles took care of the practical aspects of driving, hiring a car and road rules, distances, fuel, gps routing, accommodation and a million other things I’d never be able to wrap my head around while I checked out all the sights and stops

The Hyderabad Guide

Adaab. The traditional greeting that seems almost old wordly and somewhat princely at once elevated Hyderabad to a hospitable, cultured and graceful destination in our minds.
