The Joy of First Class Train Travel in UK: 10 Reasons

I love travelling by train in Europe including in the UK. The trains are usually comfortable no matter the class – but I discovered the joys of first class during my recent trip to the UK. I am spoiled – I might not be able to travel any other way now.

Are you looking for good reasons to travel luxury too? Here are some:

1. The seats – so plush and comfortable: In most cases, you will get wider, cushier seats with additional leg room. It can make a big difference to the fatigue [...]

Eat Travel Live


The sunlight filters through the sandstone arches, creating some gorgeous shadows in the deserted corridors.

Through the arches I see splendid gardens,perfectly symmetrical and a host of intricately designed fountains in a perpendicular line.

In the land of royal palaces and majestic forts, lies a lesser known beauty. Spectacular but in ruins, the Deeg palace is an architectural beauty. And for lovers of art and history, the place doesn’t disappoint at all.

Beautiful gardens, alluring [...]

Shruthi Hallucinations!

Cause and Effect

Me: So there was this man who....
Puttachi: "So" is only used when there is a cause and an effect. There is no cause here, so there is no effect. You cannot use "so" to start your sentence. Ok, now, what about that man?
Me: *Speechless*
Also, half the posts on my blog starts with "so". How many more lectures do I have to hear once I start letting her read my blog?

Travel Tales from Mridula

Travel during Pooja Holidays

I love the idea of travel but I dread it when I find out that everyone else is going to do it at the same time. And that time has to be the holiday time, the nearest one being the Pooja Holidays. Now it makes life easy if you wish to travel at a time when it is easy to coordinate leaves. I no longer need to take leaves as I left my job but I have to worry about my daughter’s school holidays for sure. It should be easy for Chhavi and Seshadri to take leaves. And the stars seem to align better during the holiday [...]

European Day of Languages - Enthralling Performance

Jerash – key to Greco-Roman history of Jordan

Everyone goes to Jordan to see Petra, so did I. Everything else on itinerary was a bonus, but only till I landed in Jerash. An ancient Greco-Roman city located some 50 kms north of Amman became my muse and my benchmark for the rest of Jordan trip. I was mesmerized by this beautiful city in ...

Tales of a Nomad

Kunti Betta- A Night Trek...!!

I woke up when the bus swerved off the highway onto an asphalted narrow village road. All that could be seen were silhouettes of trees and scattered houses as the cold breeze rushed in when I opened the window pane.  A short drive on the bumpy road and the bus stopped at a school ground. The little town of Pandavapura was wrapped in darkness and it seemed like we were in the middle of nowhere at 2.30 AM. Blurry eyed and half asleep, we disembarked from the bus to pitch darkness to scale Kunti Betta. We [...]

Scenes from last night's Shatabdi. It's so nice to travel with people who get that when you're tired you don't want to talk necessarily. I read in companionable silence the four hours back to Delhi, I think that makes us true friends. #traveldiary #journey #indianrailways

Are city cards worth in Europe? My assessment

As I landed in various European cities for my weekend trips- Amsterdam, Brussels, Bergen, Kaunas etc, I had to take a decision on how I would approach my spending and site seeing. Should I take them up one by one, pay as I visit or should I invest in a city card (such as I am Amsterdam Card, Brussels Card, Bergen Card etc). After some assessment, I reached a conclusion that these cards are not
