Efficient, royal, regal, picturesque – these are the words that came to my mind when probed to describe Luxembourg in one word. Why efficient, you might ask. The tax laws in Luxembourg work in such a way that a lot of Private Equity firms and other asset managers have their Europe offices in Luxembourg. And that also is the reason why I got a chance … Continue reading Luxembourg in pictures!
Is there something that always makes you stop on your tracks and take notice? It could be a stylish shoe, a perfectly tailored shirt or a bouquet of verdant flowers. What is it that makes you instantly say gleefully – Ooh, Shiny! For me, it’s grand architecture – not necessarily grand in stature but in the intricacy of work that was painstakingly put ages ago … Continue reading The “stop in your tracks” architecture of Madrid.
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
A 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.

As they say, … Continue reading A hilltop in Tuscany, Italy – New Horizon
“Driving will not be easy in this rain.” “Why don’t we take the SITA bus?” I say, referring to the big blue public transport buses easily identifiable on the road. ” That would not be any fun.” “Fine, let’s go tomorrow then.” “Oh-kayy (sigh) Let’s just go.” This is the bizarre conversation that Sach and I had, on repeat for about 5 times, before we … Continue reading The Amalfi Coast drive – with gray hues instead of blue.
It’s dinnertime in London!

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.

When you are in Rome as a tourist in the month of August, you would feel that you are in a mythical place where all the locals have disappeared and the tourists have descended in such large numbers that they are everywhere, and I mean everywhere…. You could go into the most narrow and sleepy looking alley, hoping that it would lead to a deserted … Continue reading When in Rome…..
When I first saw the love locks on Pont des Arts bridge on the river Seine in Paris, I thought it was a really cool idea, and the only reason I did not leave my mark on a railing of the bridge overflowing with love-locks and toss metal in water, is that, well, I could not find a lock. It so turns out that – … Continue reading The weight of love (locks)!
As we walked out of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam (one of the best museums I have visited but more on that later..), I took this photo of a tiny shop selling crepes. Click here for more beautiful walls that each tell a story! Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge – Wall
