Horseshoe Bend Sunset

With bated breath, the waiting was over, and we’d finally experienced what everyone was talking about. To me, it felt a lil’ like opening your birthday present or Christmas present.

Say Wow to Wahweap Overlook

Do you usually get a preview of what you’re about to see from the car? I was utterly mesmerised by the beautiful reflections of Wahweap Overlook as we were cruising along Hwy 89. My fruitless attempts to capture those reflections from a moving car had totally silenced my “Are we there yets”. Miles difference from […]

Tale of Two Lobster Piers (MDI Maine)

MDI, as it’s locally known, stands for Mount Desert Island in the state of Maine, U.S. With a population of approximately 10,000, its wonderful nothingness is fashionable enough for the likes of Martha Stewart and Rockefeller heirs to invest in summer cottages. When the French explorer, Samuel de Champlain’s gaze fell on the bare mountain […]

Enchanting Elephant Seals of Piedras Blancas

Moonstone Beach will forever have a place in our hearts.

A Taste of Kyoto

Our hearts were filled with excitement. We were about to discover Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan.

We’d left our […]

Mesmerised By Moonstone Beach

On 25 May 2015, we’d waved goodbye to the luxe California’s famous Orange County (OC), time travelled to grab a bite and relive stagecoach heydays and here we go, hitting the road again on America’s scenic byway Route 154. Dear California, how can I ever forget you, your charm, your every move is in sync […]
