Sydney city has everything that makes it a preferred Australian destination for tourists. But it is more exciting to “live” the Sydney experience as against a short hop and done trip. Lengthy summers, mild winters and sunny days make the weather here spectacular all through the year. Magnificent panoramic views, beautiful beaches, and mouth-watering sea food are the top most reasons why people come to this city and leave their hearts here.
This year we have been “beach-lucky”! That is a word and we just coined it to refer to those people who happen to visit a lot of beach destinations within a short period of time.

C’mon, we all have that private beach wish! Well here are the glimpses of these stunners we just can’t seem to get over!

There is almost nothing that can spoil my travels except PEOPLE! Really, only if I did not have to put up with those obnoxious co-passengers who range from irritating to completely unbearable!!

So while this Monday will give us the glimpses of the Holi this year, let me take you on a trip to the holi I celebrated last year. that was quite different from the usual holis .

Ocean or water villas are definitely the things dreams are made of and a definite must on a luxury travelers’ list. Well, I happened to be in one of these countries, the Maldives. It would have been blasphemous for the explorer in me to “not explore” water villas while being in this amazing country. Basically, I had to travel back and had only one to two days to spare in between. So, I finally took the call and landed at the Japanese Sunset water villa at Adaaran Prestige Vadoo, a five-star property near the capital Island of Male’. Now water villas are a costly affair but I highly recommend that you save up and book one. Trust me it will be worth all that you spend!
