"Vicarious Journeys"

Embarking on journeys that become mine, through experiences of people I meet, food that I eat, and images that I link to these stories, make me believe in the power of being "Vicarious". Read on, to discover more!

Travel Tales

Stories spun together with inputs from locals & fellow travellers, helping me make my story up. Every destination has a wealth of wonderful memories it creates, but some stand out from the crowd. Here are my favourite spots, all of which made my jaw drop & my fingers fly furiously over the keyboard, to give the journey the shape of a story. Proceed to my Travel Tales.

Culinary Journeys

The term “culinary travel” is sort of weird, infact. After all, everyone eats while they’re traveling. But, for the culinary traveler, food and drink are not incidental to the trip, but an important part of travel. This section will spill-out my fondness and fascination of peculiar, particular and favourite dishes of mine, that have created a space in my memory.  Go to Culinary Journeys.

Reviews & Recommendations

In this section,I bring in a candid view of a place, destination or a eatery that has caught my fancy.This section has been inspired by my perpetual fascination for armchair travelling, but by consciously removing the fright one incurs reading through a tourist-brochure.
My fancies, my favourites and my Reviews & Recommendations.
