The grand Victoria Memorial

Posted by

Kolkata or the City of Joy is one place that I always remember fondly. There is a certain charm in the city that only those who have lived here and felt the warmth of the people and the place can understand. My first tram and metro rides were here; visit to the vintage car rally, New Market and Park Street during Christmas time evokes a floodgate of fond memories. I couldn’t get enough of Victoria Memorial when I first visited the majestic white edifice. So, when I moved to the city, every week on my off days with my roommate […]

No adjectives can suitably describe the beauty of the Valley of Flowers in Uttarkhand.  You have to actually trek to the valley and get mesmerised by the breathtaking view.

Frolicking on the Tannirbhavi Beach

Posted by

The city of Mangalore in Karnataka, which is about 300 km from Bangalore, has numerous beaches that are still untouched. Coupled with the salivating sea food and the mouth-watering Mangalorean cuisine, it makes for a perfect weekend getaway. I love going to this lovely city just for its beaches and I never get bored of them. The Tannirbhavi Beach in Perambur is my favourite, as this 2-km stretch beach is not crowded even during the peak season; giving you the feeling of a private beach. To reach this beach located about 11 km away from the city, you will have […]
