Why La Digue Is Truly ‘Paradise On Earth’

There are some places on earth that catch you by the scruff or your neck, pull your head back, pour a pint of your favourite beer down your throat and then while you’re still trying to recover from the happy high, cast a spell on you that will change your life forever after. My experience with La Digue – the ... Read More »

Seychelles Immigration – A Nightmare Introduction to Paradise

Seychelles Immigration – A Nightmare Introduction to Paradise

I’ve done plenty of stupid shit in my life and gotten away with it. The tragedy of my life though is the fact that I end up getting into shit when I’m following rules almost whole-heartedly and doing everything exactly as is expected off sane-minded people.

The Edinburgh Literary Pub Tour – Best Birthday Ever

The Edinburgh Literary Pub Tour – Best Birthday Ever

For somebody in a one-sided relationship with his alcohol, I’m not a very big ‘birthdays’ person – I mean what the devil is the big deal, pray tell me? Yes, you were born – but is that really your achievement? More like your parents’ if you ask me; for going through 9 stressful months to see your ugly little face! Yet, ... Read More »

FLY – Learn Paragliding Near Mumbai

FLY – Learn Paragliding Near Mumbai

To fly is a dream we all have fostered since childhood. Be it looking at the birds soar up in sky or watching superman on telly, saving people, flying by.

Pondicherry – First Impressions

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance. I couldn’t think of a better one-liner to introduce this post. The day I started writing this post, was an exact month from the day I left behind everything I knew and moved to the wonderful little town of Pondicherry ... Read More »

How I Quit My Job to Travel! NOT

How I Quit My Job to Travel! NOT

I’m neither ashamed nor proud of it, but when I look back at the past few years of my life, I find it incredible that I spent an entire year after graduation, doing absolutely nothing but working my ass off to blisters and drowning myself in a blur of alcohol induced frenzy on the weekends!

A Weekend in the Lake District of England

For all it’s abundant natural beauty, there’s hardly a place in the whole of the United Kingdom that can remotely match the absolute natural splendor of the Lake District National Park, aka The Lakes (or collectively the Lakelands) in the Northwestern English county of Cumbria. Made up of 885 square meters of lakelands, forests and mountains (or fells, as they ... Read More »

A Local’s Guide to Mumbai (Bombay)

A Local’s Guide to Mumbai (Bombay)

“What strange phenomena we find in a great city, all we need do is stroll about with our eyes open. Life swarms with innocent monsters.” – Charles Baudelaire Honestly, when Mr. Baudelaire pronounced these famous words, he probably attached a lot of aesthetic meaning to it, however, when you think of Mumbai in this context, you can take that quote ...

The Leprechaun Made Me Do It!

The Leprechaun Made Me Do It!

While I traveled across the great lands of Ireland, making merry on its yummy beer and befriending boisterous, warm-hearted folk, there’s one little problem that nagged me consistently. You see I’m quite normal in some ways, and in-line with everybody that visits the Emerald Isle, I was extremely amused by the legend of the leprechaun. Unfortunately, I couldn’t hold my ...
