December = Time to India

I am back to India, this time after almost a year and a half. The last time I was here, was for my sister's wedding. With just three weeks of holidays now, time just flies! Immediately after we landed yesterday, we were in for a perfect welcome. His aunt and cousin had arranged a surprise birthday party with piles of gifts for him! Some things don't really change over time, right? :) 

When in Greece, you definitely must try these

I have been totally held up - I dunno, uhmm since May I guess .. Work, Vacation to Spain, and then Bollywood Dance Night, to Swiss (this year's quota: done -> yay), Austria, Prague, Greece, Diwali.. phew. Thanks to my Instagram, I could give you all pic updates during this time.  So here I am, with full josh, waiting to tell you, yet again- but this time, beginning from my favorite part - Food.

Walking through the world's most beautiful Paris

Image
It was my birthday, last May. And Paris - was my birthday gift from S <blush blush> Paris has always been known to have lured people since a very long time ago. Paris reminds me of those English movies with a lazy violin and jazz music in the backdrop ; a woman in perfect shape walking around the streets in red lipstick and high heels. And ofcourse, The Eiffel tower. But then, I always thought it was a little overrated. Not until I saw her myself! 

One cigarette puff

So I was waiting this afternoon near Penny, to take my bus back home. 6 more mins - showed the display. Just then a bunch of kids (well, they should be around 13 or 15 - but now its more than 10 yrs a difference to me you see, so yeah they are kids, hehe) - *where did I leave? ah yeah the kids ..


A must-have Saturday for every woman

Before I even start writing, I just want to tell you, that the below post is completely my opinion. Of course you can be different, but that doesn't mean I'm wrong, or that you are right. (No fighting, just make peace :D)

Interlaken and Around: Switzerland

Image
Phew, finally I found sometime to pick up my pen to write to you! Its VW Werksurlaub here - Factory is shutdown every year for three weeks as vacation. Haa, that means less work at office, and time to take holidays myself,yay!
As Summer is perking its heat, I am back from this year's Swiss escape!Yeah, someway or other it happens that S and I get to go to Switzerland - its now been four consecutive years. <lol I can see me bragging, but hey its worth it, right?> 
This Summer, was our Audi's first long drive. First car is always close to your heart na? Damn, I so will miss it when I go back to India. We had..

HSWD - The Police

A few days back, I randomly saw through a post update in Facebook  - of a movie called "Kaakha Kaakha" - its a Tamil Cop movie, a super-hit back in those days - that its been 13 years since it was released! Wow 13 years. Makes me feel old already!
Zooooshh went my memories back in time - I was in highschool when the movie released.

Along one of the top 10 roads in Europe

Image
It was the first time my parents visited us in Germany.. uhmm yeah they had been here last August.. Finishing up the beautiful Eiffel tower sparkle at midnight, and the vast blueness of the Swiss, we were on the way back home through Austria. That..was when S had this route to drive through. Along one of the top 10 best roads in Europe (not just one of the top 10 spectacular roads, its also one of the dangerous roads to drive).

My First Garden

Image
All of a sudden, you see birds fly here and there, bugs, butterflies, veggie-mosquitoes (Yeah, yeah these are veggies you see? - they don't bite us, but roam around the garden and are super huge! God knows what they feed on o.O) and bees buzz around everywhere. That's when you start seeing people outside. Just like howants come out back home before the Summer is on, the people begin to come out of their cocoon.. So here comes another story to my 'Firsts'.

A Bite from the Belgian Culture

Image
Of all places I'd been to, Belgium has been my foodie favorite - Yeah, the world knows Belgium for its Chocolates, Waffles, Fries and Beer. I always am super excited especially of Food- Swiss chocs : check, Italian pizzas: check and now its time to double check the Belgian pralines! So hii everyone, time for some quickbites!

When to wear what in Germany

Image
Well well.. over the years, we could see Germany adopting an open and welcoming attitude towards other nationalities, especially their neighbouring European countries. I think, maybe this cosmopolitan atmosphere along with Germany's cultural heritage, that has led to an open-minded clothing.
Clothing Tips: As you walk down the street, you could see Germans - of all ages, dress quite formally and stylishly. Although they are not a fashionista-country unlike its peers: France and Italy,

HSWD - The Assembly

Every student who passed out from my school, would for sure not forget the 'Assembly' (huh? Yeah right - that was our Prayer sessions every morning - what did you think?). Haha truly, these Assembliesused to be a blessing at times, especially when you have a History or Physics (or oh, a Maths test - how did I even forget!) test on the first period. What connection does this have to...uhmm? You'll know too.. go on.

To the Land of Thermal springs - City of Baths

Image
"City of Baths"? I mean who would name in such a way? Well well, now I know - Budapest isn't called 'The City of Baths' for nothing. You'll soon too - just like I did!
Actually 2015 was pretty held up - hmm, or I'd say it became the Family year! Firstly we went to India for S's bro's wedding and then yet again for my sister's wedding, and then my parents came to Germany - finally we settle in at one place - which means Time to pack up to travel.. tadaa :)

Three cheers to three years !!!
