I had taken part in the #AtoZChallenge for the first time last year and I must say that it was a really wonderful experience. While I did try my best to blog as well as read on a consistent basis, it wasn’t half as good as the blogging stalwarts out there. But it was surely a fantastic learning experience and a great way to get more eyeballs and meet many more bloggers ‘virtually’.
While my last year’s theme was “Micro-fiction“, this time I am going with something even closer to my heart.
I am a travel freak with a practical goal to visit at least 1/3rd of the world’s countries before I die. Currently that goal is about 33% complete. While I do write travel posts on and off, my next month will exclusively be devoted to “Travelogues“. These could range from posts full of photographs to those having detailed step-by-step itineraries.
So stay tuned for more this #AtoZChallenge.
A wax museum in the sleepy town of Troddle had risen to prominence courtesy George, one of it’s residents. His museum had figures of famous people from around the town and the cities nearby.
His work was so good that almost all the wax figures actually seemed like real people.
But no one ever knew the secret of his work until the death of his fiancee opened a can of worms.
The police who were already on the search for a number of abductions found that George killed people for money and then turned their dead bodies into wax figures.
“You need to have the courage to follow your dreams and climb the steps to your goal. You can crib all day long about what you don’t have. Or instead, you can pursue your dream and live life on your own terms. It’s your choice.”
In a country without a history of fencing, Malti had carved out a niche for herself by winning numerous tournaments. And now, she had to move out of India for a few years to train and realize her dream of representing the country.
She knew that it was time to take the leap of faith.
The Nordics (Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Denmark) have been in my bucket list since the time I can remember. The quality of life, the natural beauty, the helpful people have for long attracted millions of tourists as well as immigrants for years.
One would usually expect a lot of snow while landing in Stockholm in the peak of winter. But as is the case with the rest of the planet these days, (global warming et all), the day we landed it was just 0 degrees. From high up above, we could see patches of snow, but there was nothing to be too alarmed about.
“The light is amber, the air still; the daylilies have folded in on themselves. Soon, the hooded blue of dusk will fall, followed by the darkness of night and the sky writing of the stars, indecipherable to us mortals, despite our attempts to force narrative upon them.”

My blog is a continuation of my personality and it transports me to a different world where I can dream as much as I want.
B – Building my ideas about anything and everything under the sun
L – Linking me with bloggers from different walks of life
O – Organizing my ideas into words
G – Giving me the platform to express myself however I want
And this is why, I express my Blog Love this Valentines Day.
I pass on the baton of Blog Love to Stephen
Singapore is regarded as one of the most dynamic cities on the planet. It is at the crossroads between Asia and Europe. Despite its small size, Singapore has for long been a strong business and tourist hub. And so when I got a chance to experience the feeling of ringing in the New Year 2014 in Singapore with a lot of fireworks and celebrations, I was quite excited.
While there are dance parties throughout Singapore, the area around Marina Bay Sands is where Singapore showcases it’s splendid fireworks.
“As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be most aware of change in the air – however slight – lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.”
