Beautiful paintings in the Louvre, Paris – world’s largest museum!

Christmas market in Strasbourg, France – the oldest and biggest in Europe!

Whenever the calendar marks the start of December in a year, my mind and heart automatically switch to a festive mood. Twinkling lights all around, big Christmas trees and discounts in shopping malls signal that Christmas is on its way.…

A coffee cup and a story in Thonon – A small French town!

A coffee cup and a story in Thonon – A small French town!

I often have a feeling that afternoon are meant to be lazy, and if it is late summer and it happens to be a Sunday and you are taking a stroll by the lakeside in a small French town, a…

Cannes – A city in the French Riviera that rolls out the red carpet to glitz and glamour every year

Cannes – A city in the French Riviera that rolls out the red carpet to glitz and glamour every year

Moments were floating like a cloud in the mind, and when they bumped into the right cord, drizzling started, followed by a heavy shower. Slowly, silently and undeviatingly, I got soaked in the drizzle; a drizzle of glimpses of that…

The tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte – A winner of many battles in Paris, France!

Business magnets, actors, artists, doctors, engineers, scientists, common men, poor men, etc all receive a  gift of peace and silence from death! No partiality at all though our society has always been partial to privileged ones during life and after…

Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa in Louvre, Paris – The portrait with an enigmatic smile!

Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa in Louvre, Paris – The portrait with an enigmatic smile!

She has that kind of beauty which may give peace to our eyes, but not to our mind, I thought, while seeing Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, the most famous painting in the world in the Louvre museum in Paris. Her pair…

A day in the romantic French town of Evian!

Welcome to the small romantic French town of Evian on the shores of Lake Geneva. Away from the hustle and bustle of a city, crowd and daily routine, the juxtaposition of a small town alongside the blue lake and the…

Christmas market in Strasbourg, France – the oldest and biggest in Europe!

Whenever the calendar marks the start of December in a year, my mind and heart automatically switch to a festive mood. Twinkling lights all around, big Christmas trees and discounts in shopping malls signal that Christmas is on its way. It is not only on 25th, but every day in the month of December becomes a celebration in small and varied ways. I celebrate in December mostly by seeing a new place every year. Once I went to Goa in India, once to the leaning tower of Pisa in Italy, once to a Christmas village in Switzerland and another year I explored the Christmas market in Strasbourg in France, which is one of the oldest and biggest Christmas markets in Europe. Today I will share with you all my experience of visiting the Christmas market (or as the French say “Marche de Noel”) in Strasbourg.

The tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte – A winner of many battles in Paris, France!

Business magnets, actors, artists, doctors, engineers, scientists, common men, poor men, etc all receive a  gift of peace and silence from death! No partiality at all though our society has always been partial to privileged ones during life and after death. Perhaps we all have seen a king’s palace in any tourist destination and rarely that of a farmer’s house or a carpenter’s house. The lives of late eminent and rich personalities and also their tombs have always been a center of attraction. Only death is impartial not the society. No, I don’t have any intention to write about such contradictions that exist in our society. Instead, I intend to take you all to the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte – a winner of many battles, in the French capital of Paris!

Digital Jesus in The Cathedral of Christ The Light!

 

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.                                                                                                                                                                                        ~ Bible

We are living in a technology-driven era which promises all material comforts and convenience. But for peace, love, and kindness, we seek a place that heals us and gives us hope. Churches, temples, mosques or any religious institutions gift us moments of confession, dedication, reflection and prayer. When I saw a digital Jesus in The Cathedral of Christ The Light in Oakland, California, I was overcome by the sheer brilliance of the idea. The juxtaposition of tradition and modern ideas always inspire me.

Why do I travel?

Why do I travel? I travel to meet life; I travel to feel things which I otherwise forget during the humdrum of daily routine.

Travel Realizations, Paintings in Louvre, Paris

Beautiful paintings in the Louvre, Paris – world’s largest museum!

The Louvre is the world’s largest museum. It is located in the city of love, Paris, which is of course the capital of France! It has 35,000 objects on display over an area of 72,735 square meters. On a chilly morning in March, when I entered the Louvre, the world’s second most visited museum, I realized that this is a kind of place where one can immerse oneself in great contemplation while looking at the works of artists who have risen to great heights.

Ten beautiful spots to spend a romantic day!

Whenever I think about spending a romantic day with my better half, I imagine ourselves mostly in the lap of nature; hearing the waves splashing on the shore in a beautiful beach; sipping on hot coffee while overlooking a snow covered landscape; hand in hand, walking down a small and cozy green hamlet amidst mountains; sitting quietly before a flowing rivulet; seeing ripples and vanishing trails formed by a boat while cruising on a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains or laying under a thousand glittering stars on a dark night in a desert.
