After few days I received a call from the Embassy that I have won the mega contest. As expected, I was on cloud nine. 🙂 It was really a big moment for me. I was completely gobsmacked when I heard the news. I just hope I will be able to explore Austria next year. Wish me good luck. Luck matters !
In the past, I too have won a couple of travel competitions. One memorable trip to Malaysia and a luxury getaway in Shimla.
Reminiscing my earlier travel to Kyrgyzstan, where I spent only four days due to my hectic schedule. Notwithstanding, I managed to click hundreds of images, be it Issyk-Kul lake or capital Bishkek. Quite a cheap destination to explore. Russian is widely spoken. So it is better to learn few basic Russian words before travelling to this Central Asian country. Try to give at least 10 days to this beautiful country.
A trip to Langkawi is incomplete without a visit to hugely popular Dataran Lang (also known as Eagle Square), a man-made structure.
Situated at the southeast corner of Pulau Langkawi, the 12 meter-tall statue is bound to take your breath away. The massive eagle sculpture greets everyone who comes to Kuah by ferry. The eagle is the emblem of Langkawi Island. Try to visit the place in the morning or evening as the afternoon sun could make you feel highly uncomfortable. As I was staying in a remote place of Langkawai, I hired a taxi to reach the place.
