From Manchester to Glasgow

My recent trip to Glasgow, Scotland was full of memories. Even though I was not very happy, for I was to stay there only for a day, nevertheless I was determined to make most of the trip (who knows I may not get a chance to come back later). It was decided way back in December…

Vintage Clothing Kilo Sale

I had previously heard about Garage Sales and Backyard sales in movies and stories (If my memory is not failing me 😛 ), but hearing about the Vintage Sale about to take place on the 31st of January hosted by the Manchester Metropolitan University, made me lock my dates for visiting it.

Mamucium: The Lost Roman Fortress

Mamucium is the name of the Lost Fort of the Romans in the Castlefield area of Manchester. It is hard to believe that in the backdrop of the modern Beetham Tower, the tallest tower of the city, there can lie the ancient ruins of a Roman Fortress. To be honest, not much is left to…

HALLOWEEN @ WARWICK CASTLE

Halloween could never have been better for me, than celebrating it in one of the oldest castles of the UK. My celebrations took me on an unforgettable journey to the Warwick Castle.

Asansol -E-Hoi-Choi Part 2

The day two of my Asansol trip was filled with greater adventure than the previous day.  The day started very normally with all of us getting into the car and asking the driver to take us to Panchet. No sooner did the car start that the tyre was left punctured and we were to wait…

Asansol- E- Hoi Choi- Part 1

Short weekend trips are a blessed luxury in the busy schedule of our lives. That is why, to avail the luxurious opportunity I agreed to a three day trip to Asansol and the nearby areas. Thus we left Kolkata on a very chilly and smoggy day at seven thirty (which in my opinion corresponds to…

The Ganges Retreat

The most random trip I  ever made was to the  Diamond Harbor Resort Punyalakshmi. It felt like the other day, I was chatting with my friend and casually proposed an outing and voila, our mother’s made it come true.
