Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India for Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal is on the list of all and sundry who happen to visit India and so it occupied a spot in my itinerary as well. Symbolic as it is for love as well as being an architectural marvel it is thronged by scores of people across the globe each year. Built by the emperor…

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India for Elephant Island

Although there’s plenty to see and do in downtown Mumbai, don’t pass up the opportunity to go see Elephant Island, also known as Elephanta. Elephant Island is home to five temples carved from the stone of the island. The temples depict various gods and stories, depending on when they were constructed, and which theology prevailed…

Sluys Bakery in Poulsbo, Washington for To eat donuts!

Whenever we have out of town guests, I always take them to Sluys Bakery in downtown Poulsbo, Washington. As you get closer to the bakery you can smell the good smells – donuts, fresh baked breads, cookies. The smells give you an at-home feel reminding you of when you were a kid and your mom…

Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, India for Yoga, Evening Aarti et al.

Rishikesh happens to be a two hour journey from where I live and is easily accessible by any mode of transport. The place is a haven for Indians and foreigners alike. Rishikesh got its place on the global map from the Beatle’s visit to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s Ashram in the late 60’s. Since then it…

Mumbai, India for Holi

While it only happens once a year, Holi is something that should be on every traveler’s bucket list. Holi takes place on the full moon every March and celebrates the triumph of good over evil. Holi is celebrated in two parts: first on the eve of Holi, with bonfires. This represents the burning of Holika,…

Nassau, New Providence, The Bahamas for Vacation

My Journey to the Bahamas was an amazing trip filled with sunny skies and beautiful beaches. I was lucky enough to meet up with a Bahamian friend living in Nassau and get a locals perspective on all of the festivities that mark the Easter Holiday in the Bahamas. Getting outside of the Atlantis Resort area…

San Diego for Microbrew Tour

What better way to celebrate a Southern California bachelor party than with a limousine tour of some of San Diego County’s best microbreweries? I wasn’t aware, but supposedly San Diego is the country’ has the most microbreweries of anywhere in the country. Combine that fact along with the tidbit I learned on one of the…

Portland, Oregon for a Day Trip to the Columbia Gorge Waterfalls

As soon as I began planning a trip to Portland, I knew I couldn’t leave without a trip to the Columbia Gorge. It’s famous for incredible views of the Columbia and gorgeous waterfalls, and it’s less than an hour outside Portland. I wanted to get in as much exploring as possible, so I got an…

Skadar Lake for Otters, Birds and Water Lilies

Our unexpectedly fulfilling Skadar Lake adventure started with getting a train from Podgorica to Virpazar. Once we arrived there, we tried to find the best deal to get a boat ride and some guidance on the place, as it’s extremely diverse and had so much to offer, while we had to narrow things down to…

Budapest, Hungary for Forgotten Social Realism

I have to admit, my past experiences with Budapest weren’t always great. I had been there twice, once in 2004 for a long weekend and in 2006 for Radiohead concert at the Sziget Festival and both times something went awry and I returned home in disappointment. This time, however – I had a blast. We…

Korčula, Croatia for Historically Important Rocks

If you’re planning a trip to Croatia, but aren’t sure where to go exactly because there seems to be 8423 islands and as many coastal resorts, then Korčula might be the place for you. It has a bit of old architecture, a bit of history, a couple of nice beaches and a decent enough offer…

London, United Kingdom for Fun on a Tight Budget

People always seem to have polarized feelings about London – either they think it’s the best city in the world or they think it’s horribly over-priced, over-populated and pretty much over-anything. I have to admit my own thoughts on London fluctuate quite a bit even to this day, but I have come to believe that…

DMZ, South Korea for A Safe Step into North Korea

If someone told me a couple of years ago, or even six months ago, that I’d be casually standing on the North Korean soil, I’d laugh in their face. But fast forward to December, I ended up participating in a cultural exchange program between South Korea and my country, and as a part of our…

Amsterdam, Netherlands for Van Gogh/Munch Existential Combo

I visited Netherlands a couple of months ago and stayed in the Hague, which was pleasant enough, but not that culturally exciting (unless you’re really into international law, I guess). Once I learned there was a Munch/Van Gogh exhibition in Amsterdam, I decided to use the benefits of the Dutch impeccable railway system and the…

Reykjavík, Iceland for A Night of Viking and Brennivin

Reykjavík is one of the smallest European capitals that somehow managed to establish itself as the most exciting place for a drunken night out. Party in Reykjavík begins on a Friday and ends on a Sunday morning. At 1AM, the street of Laugavegur becomes busier than it is even during the most chaotic rush hour,…

Sarajevo, Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bosnia and Herzegovina for One-of-a-kind Experience

Sarajevo is unique and special in so many ways. It’s one of those cities that changes you once you visit it, without you even realizing it. We arrived there after a 9-hour train journey from Belgrade (one would think it’s on the other side of Europe – alas, it’s only 180 miles away, but that’s…

Thessaloniki, Greece for Food and History

If you want to visit Greece, but find Athens too overbearing and the coast and islands too packed with overly-enthusiastic tourists, then Thessaloniki might be the perfect balance of the two. As a coastal town that’s still of decent size, we were able to explore its nooks and crannies while still getting some of its…

Nicosia, Cyprus for The Mix of Cultures

So, we went to Nicosia for a quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of ol’ Podgorica. We went in January, which provided us with decent enough weather to go out and explore, which can’t be said about the climate of most European capitals at this time of year. Perhaps we underestimated just how strictly…
