LA – The City of Stars

For most of the world, L A is where all the stars alight on earth. The stars who connect us to the fantasy world.  Awed by the experience they share and star struck by their talent, how many times have we pretended to be one of those characters, fantasizing traveling to another planet or falling…

A Date with San Francisco

San Francisco: What do I write about this city! I had read about it- being the high tech & start-up capital, watched it in movies like Social Network and had seen the pictures; but nothing prepared me for what I was going to experience. Since I took to traveling as a passion, have been to…

We arrived in Bangkok during the wee hours of the morning. On my way from  airport to the hotel, the first thing I noticed was that there were people partying at every corner of the city. May be this was the peak tourist season or the city is always in a party mood. Night life in Bangkok is…
