Sri Lanka Through My Mobile

It is not possible for me to carry my bulky DSLR every time. And in many tricky situations, I completely rely upon my mobile – Mi4, which has become a reliable travel tool for me over a period of many years. I had clicked various pictures of beautiful spots of Colombo from moving buses. So the snaps may fall short on picture quality, but I am confident the images will still catch your attention.

Splendid Beauty Of Hindu Kush Mountain

The majestic beauty of Hindu Kush mountain range made me completely numb and dumb. While travelling from New Delhi to Bishkek, I somehow managed to capture the splendid beauty of this mountain, thanks to a window seat. All the images had been taken by my Mi4.

Few Words & Images About Bucharest

IMG_0085

Few hours are not enough to explore a charismatic city like Bucharest. So which is the best place to visit in a short time? I asked my friend and she quipped: Old Town.

Located in the centre of Bucharest, Old Town attracts many tourists across the globe. Filled with numerous bars, cafes and restaurants, the old town is quite popular among locals and tourist alike. Locals fondly call the area Centru Vechi (the Old Centre).

It is difficult to say which restaurant is better than the other, but I strongly recommend Hanul lui Manuc. (Hanul lui Manuc – 62-64 Franceza St). The food as well as the ambience here is amazing.

Fortunately, I managed to capture the beauty of Bucharest’s iconic Palace of the Parliament, the second largest administrative building in the world. If you are in the city, you should include this in your itinerary.

Well, my Bucharest story ends here as I did not have much time to explore this city.

Few Hours At Amer Fort

A trip to Jaipur is incomplete without a visit to Amer Fort. Situated on a hill, this spectacular fort is known as for its intricate Hindu style design and marvellous architecture. According to historians, Amer Fort, which is also known as Amer Palace, was the residence of the Rajput Maharajas and their families.

Along with Jaigarh Fort, this grand palace is situated above on the Cheel ka Teela (Hill of Eagles) of the same Aravalli range of hills.

Amer Fort and Jaigarh Fort, the two places are considered one complex, as both are linked with a subterranean passage.

I really liked both the places and clicked a lot of images. In 2013, Amer Fort was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

When I Felt Hungry In Romania

And my Romania journey continues. Before a short trip to Lake Sfânta Ana, I told my good friend Lajos Berde that I am feeling hungry. And he promised to take me to a good restaurant 🙂  And he fulfilled his promise. 🙂 Welcome to Szekler Rest House  !

Situated at Băile Tușnad, a town famous for its spas and mineral waters therapies, the Rest House is basically a Hungarian rest house-cum-restaurant.

Delicious food, refreshing drinks and peaceful ambiance just made my day. The following images may give you an idea what a wonderful time I had being there.

Noroc 🙂

A local drink called Szilvapalinka. Alcohol content was more than 40% and it took me to heaven instantly 🙂

Lake Sfânta Ana

I got a rare opportunity to visit Lake Sfânta Ana (Lake Saint Anne), the only volcanic lake in Romania, thanks to my friend Lajos. My expectation was high when he had told me that we would make a short trip to this place. Situated amidst dense forest, this lake’s history began about 9,800-8,800 years ago. If you want to visit Romania, then this must be included in your itinerary.
