    After our stay at Patong Beach we moved to Old Phuket Town in Thailand. When I booked the room on AirBnB (yes booking rooms on AirBnB can be a hit or a miss!), didn’t even know why we were actually going to Old Phuket town. As the saying goes ‘it was a dart thrown in…

    After visiting Big Buddha the taxi took us to Promthep Cape (Laem Promthep). Translated it means God’s Cape. For the locals its an important spiritual place. The receptionist at the Crystal Beach Hotel had recommended that we go there to watch the sunset. By the time we reached there it was pretty cloudy and it…

    To all my readers, thank you so much for the encouraging and positive comments for my first travel post. I must admit that Thailand was not on our bucket list as such.

    17th February to 3rd April, hubby and I spent time in Bangalore. Everyone who visits Bangalore complains about the traffic and water issues. Whatever the case, the minute I enter the gates of the complex where we own an apartment, I’m home. I love Bangalore. If you ask me why? I simply cannot answer that…
