Avada Kedavra, Butterbeer, Puking Pastilles, Azkaban, Hogwarts Castle, Gringotts Bank..If you could understand what I am talking about, you surely are a Harry Potter fan! Now what if I told you that there is a place where you can experience most of these (if not all) magical things ? At Warner bros studio London you can go behind the scenes of Harry Potter films. It’s a place where you can leave your muggle world behind and feel like a wizard for a day. Sounds exciting?
There are few cities that I loved like I loved Prague. It’s a city in Central Europe that was once a political, cultural & trade capital and residence of roman emperors. It’s a city that has witnessed everything from protestant reformation to both the world wars. Prague is on the UNESCO list of world heritage sites and showcases the best of history & culture in it’s every corner. Short on time but want to see the best of Prague? Take a look at this 2 days in Prague itinerary to plan your perfect trip in this amazing city.
You never really think of Prague as a foodie destination. One of my friends had once jokingly said that if you get hungry in Prague, you eat meat and potatoes because that’s all there is. So to be honest I had no expectation of savouring any extraordinary meal when I reached Prague. But it took me less than a day to fall in love with the local food. The way some locals & restaurants are trying to revive pre-war culture & bring back the lost recipes to table is extraordinary. I am going to give you a small glimpse of it in this Prague Eating Out Guide.
Dutch cuisine has not yet entered our kitchen as much as Italian or Chinese cuisine. To be honest even my knowledge of Dutch food was limited to Gouda and Edam cheese. But when I traveled to Amsterdam I was so amazed at the variety & colonial influence in the Dutch cuisine that I decided to write it all down in this tiny Amsterdam food guide. Use this for your weekend of gluttony! Let me tell you the 12 things you need to try in Amsterdam in this ‘Hungry in Amsterdam’ guide.
We all have that bucket list of things to do and places to visit – Sail the Galapagos islands, spend a night in over water villa in Maldives, hike up Machu Pichu, a helicopter ride over Grand Canyon, the list is endless! Search travel bucket list on the internet and one experience tops it all. Any guesses what that is? Yes, you guessed it right – Seeing the Northern Lights.
Most of you will think I am being ridiculous when I tell you that I am not a big fan of beach holidays. Firstly the idea of sitting on the beach whole day doing nothing terrifies me and second the salty breeze ruins my hair (something that ladies with extremely curly hair can relate to) I like active holidays or immersive travel experiences – walk, hike, eat, drink, understand the culture, admire the true beauty of a place kind of holidays. Read in this Lanzarote travel guide how you can escape the tourist traps and really explore the island life.
If the title of this post wasn’t self-explanatory, let me tell you that my weekend in Barcelona was full of food. Delicious, lip smacking, eat-till-you-can’t-move kind of food 🙂 But are 2 days in Barcelona enough to fully explore this vibrant city?
Bali, one of the thousands of islands in Indonesia is what I call paradise on earth. It is more than just an island, it’s a natural wonder, a cultural icon and I was lucky enough to explore it. I spent 10 days in Bali travelling across Amed, Kuta, Ubud, Northern Bali and Lembongan island. I went beyond the beach life, the party scene and the touristy places, just to discover what Bali truly offers. It has been an eye opener, to understand that what I saw was fraction of what a wonderful country Indonesia must be! If you want to experience the best of what Bali has to offer, read this 10 day itinerary for Bali.
New year, new place and new memories. 2017 was one such year for me. I moved to London in January 2017. It was a big move and After setting everything up and exploring the city I was ready for a short break. Being a Game of thrones fan I already had a list of filming locations I was dying to visit but one of them won this time. And I have to admit it was another TV series that made the decision for me -The Fall. Absolutely loved this BBC drama that was filmed here. If you haven’t guessed it yet it was city of Belfast – the beautiful city in Northern Ireland.
Last month I visited Bali and truly immersed myself in a Balinese way of life. From the moment I told my friends and colleagues that its going to be a 15 day vacation, I was asked few questions – “15 days in Bali? What are you going to do for so many days?” “Isn’t that just one island? Can’t you do cover more places in 15 days than just Bali? My common response was, wait till you see it all in my blog! If you have done only the above things in Bali, I will tell you what you have missed and give you a reason to visit again. If you haven’t been to Bali, sit tight, this post is going to tell you why Bali should be your next travel destination.
