VENEZIA : A DREAM TRAVEL DESTINATION

I was half-awake when I yawned at the sight of my window. While pulling myself up from being seated on a slouched position, I saw apparition of speed boats instead of cars on laterals of my train. What used to be visible solid roads and tracks from Firenze became fluid, where boats float and birds fly over!…

DUBAI : CASUAL DINING AT LEMONGRASS THAI RESTAURANT

In between sips of mildly spicy Tom Yum, munching of crispy prawn crackers, and engaging conversation about travel stories, photography and personal matters, my mind quietly wandered to my days in Chiang Mai, Bangkok and Hat Yai. Then, I remember I am in Dubai. With Dubai as one of the cultural melting pots in the…
