2014 – The Year I Took 12 Trips in 12 Months

When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it!
– Paulo Coelho

2014 is coming to a close, and while I most certainly cannot believe another year has flown by so rapidly, when I pause to reflect on these twelve months, I’m filled with nothing but pride.

The History and Heritage of Hyderabad

I’m on a quest to Take12Trips this year, and the challenge is in its final leg!!! 🙂

For Trip # 11 (Yay Me!), I flew to the city of Hyderabad in the last week of November, for another short weekend getaway. I was attending a friend’s wedding, so while most of my time in Hyderabad was spent at the festivities, there was no way I would be leaving without exploring at least some of the city’s many, many highlights.

5 Destinations I Would Love To Return To

193 UN-recognised countries in the world, not enough time to visit them all!
That’s the school of thought I usually subscribe to. Every time it comes to selecting a destination to visit, I usually tend towards someplace I haven’t been before.
New cities to visit, new sights and sounds to experience, new cultures to immerse myself in, new food to stuff my face with!

First Look – SodaBottleOpenerWala, Khan Market

I first visited SodaBottleOpenerWala way back in February of this year when the new Cyber Hub eatery in Gurgaon was pretty much the talk of the town. My impression of the restaurant at that time was a mix of good and bad, which I wrote about here. While the décor and ambience certainly appealed to me, the food during that meal left much to be desired. I left that day, feeling that I wouldn’t be too keen to return, and I didn’t.

But then they went and opened another outlet in one of my favourite locations – Khan Market, and an invitation for the opening found its way into my Inbox.

What I Ate in Singapore – A Photo Essay

I’m on a quest to Take12Trips this year, and it’s going VERY well so far. 🙂

In January I visited Mumbai and in February I took another quick trip to Mussoorie; I explored the Delhi Zoo in March and had a fantastic time traipsing around Europe in April. In May I went off to Shimla up in the hills to escape Delhi’s unbearable heat and in June a work trip took me to Manila, Philippines. I then flew to New York City to spend 10 glorious summer days in July and August meandering around Manhattan and falling in love with Brooklyn. September had yet another trip in store!

First Look – Caffe Tonino in Connaught Place

Ask anyone in Delhi to suggest a good restaurant for an Al Fresco Italian meal in the city, and Tonino will usually, if not always, find its way on to the list. For 10 years, they’ve been providing us Delhi-ites with consistently good food in a gorgeous setting.

They now bring to us Caffe Tonino, a more relaxed and laid-back setting to its dignified Tuscan sibling on MG Road. Caffe Tonino recently opened its doors in Connaught Place (CP), right at the heart of our city.
