India’s Jaipur – The Pink City & Pyaaz Ki Kachori

The dusty air of the city around me constricted my lungs, as I stepped outside the confines of our railway retiring room to be consumed almost whole, by the masses of people coming and going, congregating, ebbing and rising like the endless flow of the ocean’s tides. This was myRead More

Humayun’s Tomb: Paradise Lost and Found

It was dawn in New Delhi, but already the traffic was entangled, a coil of cars, buses, trucks, tuk-tuks, rickshaws and cows, a crescendo of beeping horns and swerving tires, all illuminated by the blood red sun burning through the indomitable smog. It was India, Day 2. We were standingRead More

Symphony No.1 – OLD DELHI

Surviving the Mayhem of Marrakech

Marrakech, one of the original Imperial Moorish citadels and today the fourth largest city in Morocco, sprawls out as a gateway to the foothills of the magnificent, snow-capped Atlas Mountain ranges. Famed for its 19th century, Moorish red walls, today, it is home to over 900,000 people. At its heartRead More

Cats, Columns and The Colosseum – A DAY IN ROME

Welcome to Rome I stepped out of the arrivals terminal and was greeted by a swish of the cool breeze that also carried a cloud of rapid-fire Italian. Stepping lightly past a young couple muttering into a map, I checked the time: 11:00 pm. “Figures,” I sighed. Rewind about forty-fiveRead More

DAY 15: I Will Survive!

The glowing pool of amber light we call sunrise radiated from behind the untouchable barrier of the horizon. We had risen with the dawn once again and as we trudged down the first part of today’s walk, a crunchy entree of cadet-grey gravel, we all laughed at the distant memoryRead More
