Weekly Photo Challenge — Resilient

With its very facinating history of almost not being built to a very shaky foundation that gave it its famous tilt to being declared “healthy” after a long restoration project,  the Leaning Tower in Pisa, Italy has beaten all odds and is expected to stand crooked-proud for another 200 years!

A hilltop in Tuscany, Italy – New Horizon

SONY DSCA rolling hilltop in Chianti, Tuscany, which seems content and contained at the same time. This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is New Horizon – where we explore something we want to achieve in 2017. For 2017, I want to find my happiness within and in the moment, instead of getting caught up in the loop of “I would be happy if only…..”. As they say, “Happiness is a choice”, and I want to consciously keep making that choice.

Here’s wishing everyone a very Happy 2017.

Early morning in Punta Cana

We are hardly early birds when it comes to travel, especially less so now because the mornings are spent dancing to the tunes of the pint-sized dictator who is our 17 month old.

But once S and I did wake up early and rushed to the beach in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, to catch the sunrise. We did not want to miss it and so I did not even stop to change out of my pajamas, and it did not matter as we had the deserted beach and calm ocean all to ourselves. That was a memorable morning

Beautiful Scotland

For this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge, Earth, my mind immediately went to the unspoiled and pristine beauty of Scotland. These photos were taken on the drive from London to Edinburgh and back, where we literally stopped in our tracks to capture the gorgeousness around us.

Evening shots from South Bank, LondonĀ 

It’s dinnertime in London! I had seen the majestic Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, before but seeing these gems lit up against the pink-purple-grey evening sky was a sight that took my breath away.

This post is inspired by the WordPress weekly photo challenge, Dinnertime. See more amazing photos submitted by talented photographers here.

Landscape photographs in Prague

Prague, the capital of the Czech-Republic, is any shutter-happy traveller’s dream city. I was inspired by this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge – Landscapes to “dust-off” some landscape shots taken in Prague in March 2012. It was about time I showed these pics some love.

This panaromic picture of Prague was taken from a cafe tucked away in the back of the Lobkowicz Palace within the Prague Castle. We would have completely missed this hidden gem of a cafe, had it not been for the diligent reading of a guide-book.

Fall colors in Hudson River Valley


Currently our little toddler is front and center in our lives. I immediately thought of her for this week’s WordPress weekly photo challenge – One Love, as she represents an all encompassing and all engulfing love.

I wish that she grows to have curiosity, inquisitiveness, a sense of adventure and a respect for nature and all cultures and above all a strong wanderlust.

In this photo taken in the beautiful town of Cold Spring, New York, she is absorbing her first fall colors.

Would you consider an Iguana creepy? Maybe at first glance… but witihn a few minutes you realize that these large lizards are actually quite stately, calm and elegant.

While this scaly friend was spotted in Mexico,we saw more iguanas in all hues of the rainbow in the US Virgin Islands. They seemed to be the celebrated guests of our resort, where you could find them sunning by the pool or taking a stroll in the gardens or just enjoying the view!
