A day spent at Korum Salon in Delhi | Salon Review (Delhi)

Let me confess that I am a salon junkie and love to pamper myself getting various treatments in salons. I find it a good way to de-stress and also spend my hard earned money :) So  when Korum Salon in Greater Kailash , Delhi (M Block Market, GK 1) invited me for a salon review, I was more than happy enough to experience the same. I spent a relaxing, rejuvenating Sunday at Korum Salon in Delhi, getting pampered and having a wonderful time away from everyone (which is so hard to find for a new mommy).

Cellular Jail in Port Plair, Andaman & Nicobar Islands ~ A dark memorial to Indian freedom struggle

India became an independent country from Colonial rule on 15th August, 1947 after many years of freedom struggle. The freedom movement took many lives and is filled with bloody & dark chapters of brutality, violence and harsh punishment by the colonial rulers. One of the most foremost memorial to the dark chapter of Indian freedom struggle in the Cellular Jail in Port Blair, in the archipelago of Andaman & Nicobar Islands (India). I visited the Cellular Jail, now a National Memorial on my holiday to Andaman Islands and it was a surreal goose bumpy experience for me.

Dried Seafood Street in Hong Kong ~ The Hong Kong Chapter #3

Guest Post post by Payal Biswas and part of The Hong Kong Chapter Series 


During my bus rides through Hong Kong city, every time my bus passed the dried seafood street in Sheung Wan, I had this urge to get down and explore. So finally one day I rang up a local friend, Candy; and asked her to accompany me. So on a sunny afternoon Candy and I ventured into the busy, bustling Des Voeux Road west commonly known as dried seafood street in Hong Kong

Kasauli in Himachal Pradesh , India ~ Escape into tranquility

Kasauli is a small town & army cantonment in the Himalayan state of Himachal Pradesh.  It is an accidental hill station, having located on the hills and located along the way to the more famous Shimla; however, mostly it’s a small town with an army cantonment, few hotels, lots of colonial style cottages & bungalows and some heritage structures from the British era (church & some buildings). I had the opportunity to visit it back in 2006 on an office trip and wanted to come here ever since. This summer, we decided to go for our family holiday in Kasauli along with our infant daughter and Mum. It was 4 days of escape into nature and tranquility.

Road trip from Delhi to Kinnaur, Sangla, Chitkul, Kalpa and Kasauli in Himachal Pradesh (India) ~ A solo rider's chronicles

My love for travel runs in the family and my brother is one person who travels as much (sometimes more) as I do, both personally & professionally. He is a bike lover and done many trips on his trusted & loved Enfield. This summer, he did his first solo bike road trip and loved it so much that decided that from hece forth he will only do solo bike trips. We were discussing about our travels one evening when the idea came up to chronicle his travels and I promptly offered him to be a guest author on my blog. He agreed and so here I am proudly announcing my brother (S.Sarkar) as the guest author chronicling his solo rides here, this first post is -  A Road Trip from Delhi to Kinnaur, Sangla and Kasauli
