California is a wonderland of trees with some of the tallest and largest trees in the world. I gazed in awe when I saw the Coast Redwoods, Giant Sequoias, and Monterey cypress trees for the first time, and they never cease to amaze me even now. Walking among the most ancient of the ancient trees in the world in California has an unparalleled charm and made me fall in love with trees – the majestic hearts beating for centuries. I love exploring and framing the iconic and super scenic Monterey cypress trees and tunnels near San Francisco with my camera on weekends and can’t wait to share them with you all.
During my decades-long travels, whenever and wherever I came across exhibitions, museums, events, or memorials celebrating women, I acquired a piece of memento for my collection. Eventually, I built a montage of travel souvenirs that celebrate women. They all inspire me and give me the strength to achieve new milestones and set new goals. I hope these souvenirs and their stories will inspire you too as they do to me.Celebrating women – A Montage of travel souvenirs! #InternationalWomensDay #ChooseToChallenge Click To Tweet
Charlie Chaplin, one of the most powerful protagonists in world cinema spent the last 25 years of his life in Vevey Switzerland, one of the pearls of the beautiful Swiss Riviera. While living in Lausanne, I got the opportunity to visit Chaplin’s World, the Charlie Chaplin house in Switzerland. It was wonderful to know about the bright mind and creative man behind the baggy pants, tight coat, small hat, oversized shoes, and a cane in the hand through his everyday life, portrayed thoughtfully inside his house. I gained insight not only about his personal life inside the mansion but also his artistic creations in the newly built studio film museum, in the same premise. The visitors here get to see the recreated scenes and characters built with wax from the famous movies of our beloved tramp. If you are like me whose childhood Sundays in India mostly began with a Chaplin show or are interested in Chaplin, the passionate artist, the comic genius, and the cinematic innovator who worked on both sides of the camera, come along with me and explore Chaplin’s world.
The entire Derma E Vitamin C Collection has worked wonders for me. I have been using Derma-E Vitamin C products for almost a month now and my face is glowing like the crisp autumn sun. They have added an extra sparkle to my face. My skin has become smoother, softer and supple. In short, my skin is breathing and it feels wonderful. I being a travel blogger, outdoors are omnipresent in my daily routine. I get very less time to opt for an elaborate daily skin care routine. So I was in search for products which use natural ingredients and are cruelty free. When I heard about Derma E, which follows the principle of eco-ethical skin care, I started trying their products. From a young age, I have always included vitamin C not only in my diet but also in my skin care. The Derma-E Vitamin C collection is like a dream come true; a modern twist to age old products that have suited my skin well. Their products are like poetry in bottle; soothing, relaxing and add a glow from within. I have decided to share my skin care routine and the products that I use with you all and I hope my reviews will help you all to decide the best for you.
Be good to your skin. You will wear it every day for the rest of your life.Renee
The Exploratorium in San Francisco provides a fertile platform for curious minds. It opens the door to varied frontiers of knowledge for both children and adults. It encourages everyone to wonder – What? How? Why? Abstract concepts of science are displayed in an easy to understand format and are highly interactive. No wonder, the Exploratorium is one of the top attractions in San Francisco. The strict barriers between art and science blur in the different exhibits and present a creative space to think further, increase our ability to understand the world around us, and inspire us to strive for the unknown. Here, the journey to every exhibit starts with wonder and ends with wonder. While exploring the Exploratorium in San Francisco, I felt that despite our limitations and fallibilities, we humans are capable of greatness because we seek. If you are in San Francisco then keep aside a day to explore Exploratorium – a destination that reveals our world to us through science, art, and human perception.
Movies have always been my passport when I can’t travel. The best part is, through movies set in different countries, we can all travel without visas, tickets and travel passes from the comfort of our homes. It can probably never match the real experiences, but can spark a feeling of wanderlust in us. I often feel that the past, culture, aesthetics and uniqueness of a place survive in its art and movies, which are otherwise dwindling in a globalized and digitized world today. In this article, let me suggest some incredible movies set in Europe to spark your wanderlust, as they do to me. Having watched all of them, I can surely say that these movies are adept at immersing us fully within their time and space – hallmarks of any great cinema. Find out about all the movies and savor them at your own pace.

The Upper and Lower Mesa Falls on the way to the Yellowstone National Park from Idaho is a must-see place for nature lovers. Wrapped in wilderness and calm, the Mesa falls will instantly uplift your mood anytime. On our long drive to West Yellowstone from Idaho, I loved the short trip to Mesa Falls deep in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest and enjoyed a short hike from the Upper Mesa Falls to the Lower Mesa Falls.
