A KID’S DAY OUT IN BANGKOK

Tell me something I can’t do and I will do it twice ! There is a challenge in doing things you aren’t deemed capable of. This year in the session break we (me & my parents) spent a short time in the lifeline of Thailand, the city of Bangkok, to break the monotony of routined…

One way ticket to Chiang Mai !

If you are always hunting for an experience which is more local and less touristy, then this time ditch Bangkok and go Chiang Mai. As much as I love Bangkok, I still find the city of Chiang Mai a much better alternative to it. Chiang Mai, also fondly called ‘CheingMai’ is a city set in…

10 Things To Do In Pai

Wherever we go, we always stop at the mountains. We can’t seem to have a long distance relationship with them ! Starting from Chiang Mai and braving 762 mountainous curves we reached this hidden beauty nestled in the mountains which was almost like a tropical beach island with a river instead of an ocean :-p…

Pai – A Thai Mountain Getaway !

Have you ever returned from a trip and felt a strange emptiness inside you ?ย A feeling that you can never be completely home again? Such is the price you pay for going to Pai ! Named after the river flowing through it, Pai is a small town tucked in a quiet valley amidst thai mountains…

Inspirational travel movies !

I am pretty straightforward in saying that I am blessed with travel genes. The very mention of a trip, even if it’s to the Scottish cemetery nearby, excites me beyond measure. I never had to work hard to achieve this. I have been travelling since I was only 3 months old. Not that I understood…

Naya Village – Rural Art Attack

If you too come from a convent school like mine, you can feel the presence of God in your life. At my school, we are always guided to search for the opportunities that He places in our lives and step into them willingly the moment we recognise them. So, here I am with another God…

Moscow – Russia’s Architectural Wonder !

Delhi to Moscow has been my longest continuous flight till date. Engrossed in my dream book series, six and an half hours didn’t seem too long to a Potterhead like me ! Hence with my glasses half on my nose, I was deep in Harry’s tales of Hogwarts when I heard the announcement to fasten…

Kolkata to Vizag – The Jewel of the East Coast

When you can easily reach your destination in a 100 minute flight but you still prefer an extra 800 minutes on the highway, you can call yourself a true seeker of adventure. After experiencing Durga puja in its full grandeur in my home city (ย read about my experience hereย ) we used up the rest of…

Durga Puja in Bengal – A once in a lifetime experience !

What Christmas is to the world, the hundreds of Indian festivals are to India ! Not even one loses it significance because of the presence of so many others. Each one is celebrated with great pomp and show and one lifetime is not enough to know and see them all.ย  I am proud and blessed…

Epic Road Trip – Kolkata to Agra

Looking at the map of India, I find Kolkata and Agra pretty close to each other. My small hands can draw a line between them in a jiffy. In my small world it all sounded really simple and I thought it would be like any other road trip I have been to before until we…

Stockholm – The Land of Museums !

I know Sweden for Alfred Nobel, the famous scientist. Alfred is known popularly for the Nobel prizes but very few know that he was the inventor of Dynamites. Legends have it, that Alfred did not want to be remembered by people as a creator of something so destructive hence he left enormous money in his…

Nature at its best !

In my school much importance is given to plants and their usefulness. We have Nature Walks ( to identify plants and their medicinal uses) & Nature Corners (corners dedicated to plants in every class) for students of all the classes. From the very beginning, we have been taught to care for the environment. But still…

Norway – The way to Northern Lights !

When my dad planned a trip to Norway in the summers we knew we would miss on the Northern Lights. I fell in love with them the first time I saw them on YouTube. I usually paint the sky with multiple colours in my drawing class. Though the only time I have seen Indian sky…

Helsinki – Daughter of Baltic !

Helsinki is the capital of #Finland and also my heart. Last month when my summer holidays began we flew to northern Europe. Our first and foremost destination was #Helsinki. I have heard much about Finnish people, my parents talk about them in day to day conversations. Before i visited Finland, i already knew few of…

Gardening with Grandmom !

Hi there ! I have been busy with my grades for a while. This school session is ending this Friday and we are now only helping out the teacher prepare the class for the next batch. There aren’t any home works and mother is letting me more free time than usual. I have ample time…

Useful Links !

I have been instructed to share some URLs(i dont know what that stands for .. my mother spelled that out for me) with all my young friends. Those websites are helping me a lot at school. I am shining, trust me. And the credit goes to my 1 . Grand dad – who teaches me…
