What can I say about Capri? The two days spent in Capri, an island off Amalfi Coast in Italy stand out among all my travel memories like a clear teacher’s pet that the teacher keep’s comparing every other student to for decades. The island of Capri, located in the Bay of Naples, is half an hour by ferry from Sorrento and about an hour by … Continue reading The Mediterranean jewel that is Capri

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 … Continue reading Early morning in Punta Cana
It’s not the side of the Park that you will see in the movies or in the tour guides. It is also not the area where you would see brides being photographed for the customary New York wedding photography, much to the amusement and delight of the onlookers. Such a slice of Central Park exists and its charming and unassuming if not glamorous and over-photographed. … Continue reading Visiting the Harlem Meer and northern Central Park
