Stratford Upon Avon: Home of the Bard

William Shakespeare is an unforgettable part of English Literature. For generations before us and for generations after, his tragedies and comedies would continue to inspire people. It would illustrate the relevance of his characters composed in the sixteenth century compared to modern-day people. Sharp orators like Octavius, shrewd and cunning wives like Lady Macbeth, over…

Manchester: Sculpture Walk, 2016

Manchester is a city of wonders. Every where you look, the buildings are beautifully constructed. From colonial architecture to gothic spirals and domes, you would find them on all houses. Even the contemporary apartment buildings have been made on the grounds of erstwhile important commercial markets or have unique designed which need to be noted….

GUEST POST : The South American BackPacking Diaries

Last February, my husband and I look a leap of faith. We quit our jobs to travel. And now, a year later, I’m here to report that we’re okay- great, in fact! Quitting your job can be a scary thing, especially when you don’t have a real plan or a ton of money. We didn’t…

Buckingham Palace, London

My final destination for the London visit was the famous Buckingham Palace, seat of the Monarch of UK, in this case the Queen. Interestingly, the day I visited the palace was the official celebrations of the Queen’s birthday. Apart from the usual Change of Guards ceremony, a special celebration took place on this day. The…

London: The City Which Never Sleeps

The beautiful light of the moon came streaking in through the window and fell on my face. It woke me up. I checked the time; it was almost 2 am in the morning. My friend was fast asleep. I kept staring at the beautiful tree outside, whose leaves shined and glowed in the moonlight. At…

London: The First Glimpse . . .

In my previous post I had promised to take you along with me on a journey to London; and I have returned to keep that promise. My train reached the Euston station around 12:35 ish in the noon. The signs in the station were clearly marked and in no time, we found our way out….

London Calling . . . . .

“Travelling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” – Ibn Battuta I believe that travelling is not only a narration of the do’s and don’ts regarding a specific place but to take the audience on the journey of the place with me. It is no fun to describe the feelings of the…

A Glimpse of Glasgow

Glasgow the third largest city of the United Kingdom boasts of its history, culture, heritage, tradition , education and architectural glory. Interestingly, Glasgow is not only a centre for culture and arts but also for science and commerce. Very rarely can a city be seen which has an amalgamation of all three streams – art, commerce…

From Manchester to Glasgow

My recent trip to Glasgow, Scotland was full of memories. Even though I was not very happy, for I was to stay there only for a day, nevertheless I was determined to make most of the trip (who knows I may not get a chance to come back later). It was decided way back in December…

Vintage Clothing Kilo Sale

I had previously heard about Garage Sales and Backyard sales in movies and stories (If my memory is not failing me 😛 ), but hearing about the Vintage Sale about to take place on the 31st of January hosted by the Manchester Metropolitan University, made me lock my dates for visiting it. So, a friend…

Mamucium: The Lost Roman Fortress

Mamucium is the name of the Lost Fort of the Romans in the Castlefield area of Manchester. It is hard to believe that in the backdrop of the modern Beetham Tower, the tallest tower of the city, there can lie the ancient ruins of a Roman Fortress. To be honest, not much is left to…
