This is my first post in 2020 and the last one I had published was way back in September 2019. Almost a year that is! Many still lie in the draft state and I hope they see the light of day sometime soon :).

So much happened in the last one year that it was overwhelming...

I love Europe. There is at least one thing that everyone can appreciate in any place, big or small. Like this small town called Tirano in Northern Italy which lies in the border of Italy and Switzerland. Nestled in the Alps. Picturesque, lively and oozing the old world...

If you are following me on Instagram, you would know that we had a three week long vacation in Europe in Spring. Unfortunately, from the time we came back, there were multiple health issues for both of us and if you throw in a dash of laziness to that mix, you know why...

I love reading. Be it books, magazines, online articles - anything which ticks with me. However, I have noticed a slight change in my library haul patterns, I have started looking at the self help section more than ever. Possibly, because I am always striving to be bet...

I am a list packer. I like to ensure that I have all the things that I might need, are lying neatly tucked in some part of the luggage that I am carrying. Also, the very first step of making a list itself gives me a happy high – it means the day to travel is just aroun...

 It happens

It happens to me once every while,

That I feel sad and low -

Nothing seems to make me smile,

My world runs out of flow.
