Out and about in Camden with Miya




If you follow me on Instagram, you must have seen many pictures of Miya and me. Miya is my only friend in London who can talk makeup and that's why I love her so much. Oh! Did I mention that she is an Instgram star? Check here Instagram here .

Couple of weekends ago we decided to get together in Camden Town and Oh boy! I was super excited. I have been to Camden Town few times before with my husband. You know how it is with men and shopping, right? I don't really get a chance to go into each and every shop, obviouly I was ecstatic to gop shopping with Miya.

As expected, the day turned out to be fun. We went to each and every jewellery shop in the area, I even bought some :). Miya being a sweet person bought me the sunglasses that you can see me wearing in the pictures.

There is so much we did on that day but I won't bore you guys with the details and leave you to enjoy the pics.

Don't forget to follow Miya on Instagram!

Top 5 things to do in Tenerife- Canary Islands


On a beach holiday, a normal person would generally soak in the sun most of the time and sip on a cocktail or beer. Some people may go further and get involved in some water activities like parasailing and jet skiing, but we as a couple can't sun bathe for long and we crave for activity. We had already done our share of whale watching and water activities, so we decided to ditch the beach and hit the road to explore the Tenerife island.

So here are the top five things to do in Tenerife:

1) Drive to Masca village

Masca is a gorgeous little village, situated in Teno mountains. The drive to this village can be quite tricky as the roads are steep and have hairpin bends, however the sights along the journey are beautiful. We stopped at many locations to take pictures as the views are breathtaking. The village itself is quaint and has small shops and restaurants. 

The best part of the trip was the drive and then the lunch overlooking Masca village 









2) Drive to El Teide

Teide is a volcano on Tenerife Island and to reach the peak, we have to drive through the Teide national park. The drive is just mind blowing. On this drive, the roads are far better than the roads to Masca, so we enjoyed it more as we were able to soak in all the views around us without worrying much. 

On reaching Teide, we took a cable car to reach the peak. Believe it or not, on the peak of the mountain, it was snowing. It was just a beautiful and surreal experience and we highly recommend it to everyone who goes to Tenerife.










3) Los Gigantes 

Los Gigantes is known for it's stunning black volcanic cliffs. If you are interested in dolphin watching or any other sea activity, this is the perfect place to do it. View of the cliffs is perfect from the sea and can be expereinced in their full glory. This place is also surrounded by small restaurants and shops. It's a perfect place to spend a day or half a day depending upon the schedule. 






4) Walk from Costa Adeje to Los Cristianos

This walking path offers the most beautiful and breathtaking views. I am not lying when I say that we walked on this path atleast two times a day, It's especially beautiful at the sunset time. Talking of sunsets brings me to point no. 5

Day out in Greenwich


Being an explorer of offbeat places and as someone who loves visiting new places, I am embarrassed to say that I visited Greenwich for the first time on Saturday. Yes yes, I have lived in London for little more than 6 years now but somehow I never got a chance to go to this gorgeous place.

So last weekend, we took advantage of the gorgeous weather and finally went to Greenwich..woohoo! As we are huge admirers of food markets (you may know this by now after seeing my posts on the most amazing food market in London and the Christmas food market), we first went to the food market and tried a variety of items. We were so busy eating that I didn't even take any pictures. Later we went to the Greenwich park, walked around it and went up the small hill to see the GMT line. 

All and all it was a fun day out. We are definitely going to go back to this place in proper summer for a picnic. Have you ever been to Greenwich? What was your experience?

A visit to Prague Castle and the best hot chocolate place in the world!


On our fourth day in Prague, we roamed the streets in the Indianbeautie style. No destination, map or route in mind, we just walked aimlessly on the streets, soaking everything with all our senses. While walking around we stumbled upon a coffee shop called Kaficko, where we have the most thick and yummiest hot chocolate ever. I highly recommend it! Only after coming back to the hotel room, I checked it's reviews and realised that many people have rated highly about this place.

We then visited the Dancing House, to be honest, I was left under whelmed by it and was not sure why it's so famous.

On our last day in Prague, we visited the Prague castle. It was snowing the entire day, so we couldn't take many pictures. I will say that the day was well spent checking out all the parts of the castle. The best part was the Golden Lane which has a row of small colourful houses. In this row, house no. 22 belonged to Franz Kafka which is now a souvenir shop. 

Check the previous two posts on Prague here and here.

Prague- Underground nuclear bunker, John Lennon wall and Kafka museum




Out of the five days that we stayed in Prague, this day was the most enjoyable day as I experienced  and saw surreal things. We started the day by going to the most gorgeous church- St. Nicholas. I am soon going to post a video from Prague where you'll be able to see the full gorgeousness of the church, this picture doesn't even do any justice.

Then we went to the Kafka museum. Kafka is one of my favourite authors, so I thoroughly enjoyed the museum learning about his life and experiences. If you love literature, then this museum is a must go when you are in Prague. 

Outside the museum there is also a David Cerny's sculpture - Peeing Statues. Many people come to the museum just to see the installations. Quite interesting, I must admit!

Later we also went to the Kampa museum and came across more installations by David Cerny and obviously we had to pose funnily next to them. After lunch we went to see the John Lennon wall, cannot believe a wall has so much history and represents symbols of love and peace. 

Then comes the most interesting experience of my life, we got to go the underground nuclear bunker built during the WW II and got to see the equipment, uniforms, gas masks. It was built out of fear and precaution in case a nuclear war breaks out but thankfully they never had to use it. This is a must go tour if you ever go to Prague. This tour includes a tour on communism too. 

The day was full of fun, wonderful experiences and information.
