Day 4: we left the big city for the rest of South NZ, our first stop was to pick some grocery from the supermarket, which was not necessary as there are grocery stalls all throughout the country. Our first stop was to Dudley's Cottage in Arrowtown, old gold mining town, where the children can try…

New Zealand 2018 : Milford Sound

Having just landed the day before, after about 10 hours of flight, I took up a tour package for the trip to Milford Sound (a protected anchorage or straits) to adjust myself out of the jet-lags or travel fatigue. This had proven to be a great choice and I was able to snap some scenery…

New Zealand 2018 : Queenstown

Year-end ushers in the 6 weeks holidays for the children. Many parents will plan for a longer holiday for the entire family and challenging themselves to go further and longer than what they have done the previous year. I am surely feeling the pressure, with the body aching to go on roads less travelled and…

Secret Arsenal : Olympus TG-1

At the recent trip to New Zealand, as in other trips before this, I was restricted in bringing excessive photography gears for documenting the moments. We (suffering the same fate) have to pack our children's and spouse baggages and be constrained by the remaining space available or the weight we can manage. Five years back,…

Hallstatt, Austria 2018

Hallstatt, 27 July 2018, was a picture perfect place that one should not miss, if you pass by this part of the country. It was an enjoyable bus trip from Salzberg or could be better if you drive. I will just leave you with the pictures captured.

Salzberg, Austria 2018

Salzberg, 26-27 July 2017, which meant “Salt Fortress” in German, is a legendary place for scenic sights. We could have planned too short for this location as we have effectively only one and half days here. We stayed in a cosy place at ACHAT Plaza Zum Hirschen and you may wish to know that you can…

Cesky Krumlov, Czech 2018

Cesky Krumlov, 25 July 2018, is a UNESCO protected site because of its rich history. The nation prides itself as a drinking community that knows how to brew and enjoys their booze. We booked for a day tour at the hotel and throughly enjoyed the scenic tour for the day. The old streets of Cesky…
