I stepped out of my apartment on my first weekend in the city to explore my surroundings where I will be spending next couple of months. As I walked along the South Bank of the river Thames enjoying the most cherished, British Summers, I reached the most famous landmark of London, The London Eye. This giant Ferris wheel is the center of attraction and there was a huge queue to get on to that. As a matter of fact, it is the most popular paid tourist attraction with 3.5 million tourists annually.
Have you ever been in a situation where you are waiting for somebody and have nothing to do? Usually, people fickle through their phones while waiting and some just try their hands on photography, like I did.
In our busy schedule, we rarely realize how beautiful nature is and how much peaceful it can be to just look at flowers around you, the greenery and the chirping of the birds. Just by observing them, one tends to forget all worries and tensions of life for quite sometime. We are so lost these days in the beauty of materialistic things and we have almost forgotten how beautiful the nature is.
The flower in the picture caught my eye while I was waiting and it did bring smile on my face. I tried to capture the essence of that moment with the macro photography.

Cape Verde is a place of immense beauty and culture, but for some reason doesn’t get the acclaim its other island brethren receive.

Here are just a few reasons to love Cape Verde.

Destination was around 260 Kms from New Delhi which I anticipated around 10 hours journey as we will have kids along, my son and my friend's daughter. We planned to leave early in the morning at 5am to avoid traffic, but as always, I was running late and finally we left at 7am in the morning and picked my friend, his wife and their daughter. After struggling with school buses on the way and office goers, we finally touched NH-8 and my car was more than happy to fly.

On my first day out while exploring London, I came across St Paul's Cathedral, one of the most famous and most recognizable sights of London. St Paul's Cathedral is a Church of England cathedral, the seat of the Bishop of London and mother church of the Diocese of London.
The present church dating from the late 17th century, was designed in the English Baroque style was part of a major rebuilding programme which took place in the city after the Great Fire of London.
I can't even recall when I went on a holiday with my family last time. Never too late, I thought to plan one and it was supposed to be my eight month's old son's first ever trip. Since, it was his first trip, selecting a destination was the most difficult part as my wife had doubt if he will let us enjoy, how will he react outside? Where as I was fine with any destination as I knew he is a son of a traveler so it must be in his genes, but as a good husband, I addressed the concerns of my wife and we selected Chandigarh as our destination. Given, my aunt lives there, it would be easy for my son as well to get that homely feeling. The only concern I had was mode of transport since he feels claustrophobic in car, we chose India's most preferred way of traveling, by train.
