Florence, Italy in 2 Days

Florence 23Hi there travelers,

Sorry this took a while. I promise I will try and be more regular with my blogposts. I am still working on my blog series about my travels in Italy. If you haven’t yet, read my blogpost on Venice to learn a little about the city and what I did there. My next stop was Florence,  one of my favorite cities in Italy. I just loved all the history and culture associated with it. I’ve become obsessed with the Medici’s and I binge watched the entire series (Medici: Masters of Florence) on Netflix before I went here. That made my trip even more enjoyable as I was able to relate to the history and art associated with each place I visited and really appreciate the context and underlying stories. The Medici’s were one of the richest families and  Florentine bankers who contributed significantly to the development of the city through their patronage and sponsorship of the arts.

Istanbul Travel Guide

Istanbul 12

Hello Travelers,

How are you all doing? I’ve been having a really fun summer traveling and enjoying my time here in San Francisco. Finally, I had some free time to work on my travel posts. So, I had a chance to visit this mystical and beautiful city last year and I wanted to share my travel memories with you. The city which used to be known as Constantinople amazed me with it’s beautiful architecture and hospitable people. I stayed right in Taksim Square which is the center of the city. It was pretty convenient to get to any of the attractions from here via taxi’s. Continue reading

Road to Hana, Hawaii

Road to Hana 9

Hi there my fellow travelers,

Been a while since I wrote a travel post. I had the chance to visit the beautiful island of Maui last month and I loved it even more. I got the chance to collab with Valley Isle Excursions and go on a fun road to Hana trip. If you are not comfortable driving on the windy hawaiian roads to hana, I would suggest you book a tour and enjoy the views. You also get a chance to meet some cool new people and have fun along the way instead of worrying about driving. The tour company was extremely professional , timely and our driver was very knowledgeable. Continue reading

Amsterdam Travel Guide

Amsterdam 39

Hi Fellow Travelers,

Hope you all have been good. I have been insanely busy with my new job responsibilities and haven’t been able to post in a while. However, since a number of my friends were asking me about my euro trip, I decided to spend some time and write about my visit to Amsterdam. Needless to say, I loved the city. It has everything you need in a small parameter and you can bike to pretty much everywhere. The quaint suburban dutch towns within a small driving distance are each unique and beautiful in their own way. All in all, Amsterdam is a place I would move to in a heartbeat given a choice.

The history of Ephesus, Turkey

Ephesus 22

Hello Travelers,

Happy New Year…!!!

Hope you all had a wonderful 2016 and have an even better 2017. I had a great year with a lot of fun travel adventures, brought a new house, got a promotion 🙂 and I hope the good luck continues onto the new year. I visited Turkey last December and Ephesus was my first stop. The city is about an hour’s drive from Izmir (you can fly from Istanbul to the Izmir airport). We stayed in Selçuk city which is near the ruins and has a number of hotels. Though it was really cold this time of the year in Turkey, the advantage of a visit now was that the sites were not as crowded and I could capture some beautiful shots of the sites. Continue reading
