Cox’s Bazar – Sea Foam and Salt Grains

For as long as I can remember, Cox’s Bazar with its endless sandy beach and azure crashing waves almost blending with the horizon, has been a second home to me. Annually, my family goes there to disconnect from the busy life of the capital and spend time mingling with...

Safari Adventure in Dubai

Dune Bashing On a fairly pleasant winter morning (living in the tropics all my life, winters for me are blissful!), what began as a laid-back start in a cozy hotel room, turned out to be one of the most thrilling evenings of my holidays in Dubai. Accompanied by two of...

It was the spring of 2017. Having spent 6 months in New Zealand with a Working Holiday Visa before entering my university, I knew that I should be doing something abroad instead of sulking at home. But then, I had zero ideas on what to do, so I opened up and talked to...

Amused In Malaysia

Amused In Malaysia

The story of Malaysia is that of a people torn into three islands. While the peninsula calls itself only one half of the whole, it is not hard to assess that it contains that which the eastern isle does not: wealth- material and hedonistic. Penang separates itself...

Osaka: Discover the Best of the Japanese Metropolis

Osaka: Discover the Best of the Japanese Metropolis

On an hour-long train ride from Nara to Osaka, the once peaceful landscape turns into a genuine bliss of neon lights. Osaka is clearly a denser city than Nara and Kyoto. On top of that, I made the mistake of coming here during a Chinese holiday, a week to be precise....
