I had a short visit to Google's HQ in Mountain View, California. Unlike Indian cities where security prevents you from entering the gate, businesses in the west have a pretty open policy as they have very less crowd and much lesser security risk from public. It is possible for visitors to just walk-in into Google's HQ, explore around without being questioned or having to undergo any complicated ... Read more

I've visited many mangrove forests- one in Pichavaram, few in Thailand and other places. But visiting Bonefish Pond National Park in Nassau, Bahamas was a different experience, because of its crystal clear water. Most mangrove forests I had seen so far had muddy waters unfit to step into. But Bonefish Pond National park has its water so inviting and transparent, it will be very tempting to enter... Read more

When I decided to include visiting Bahamas during my USA trip, I had to select between two options- flight or cruise. I did a quick evaluation of both options and decided on flight, as it was best suited for me. But depending on your preferences you may chose cruise. Why I chose flight? I got good deal- some 97 USD Washington to Nassau via FLL on Southwest and 163 USD Nassau to FLL ... Read more

How a 48250 INR ticket is resulting in a 3 lakh spending! I’ve had one brief visit to USA way back in 2012. Had spent 5 days in New Jersey and 2 days in New York. Since then, another trip to USA never materialized- mainly due to expensive ticket cost, partly due to time it takes to do a reasonable trip to USA- at least 2-3 weeks are required to reasonably explore key parts of US and getting...

Mahindra XUV300 is the compact SUV Mahindra has positioned to rival Ford Ecosport, Tata Nexon, Vitara Brezza, Honda WR-V and the likes. Mahindra has given everything they've got to XUV300-with a very tough competition landscape, failure is not an option. Thus XUV300's top variant is armed to the teeth with features (costs upto 15 lakhs, still about 7-8 lakhs cheaper than top end XUV500) while ... Read more

From what I have experienced, your best bet is Mahilapur. If money is not a constraint, there’re many super luxury hotels close to Delhi airport- Andaz, Marriott and more- but these hotels cost over 5000-7000 INR per night at the minimum, ... Read more

Dambulla golden temple wasn't on my plan before visiting Srilanka- I had considered a possible trip to Dambulla Rock temple but not the golden one. When we arrived at Dambulla by bus, Tuk Tuk (auto) drivers surrounded us. One of the driver asked if I want to go to Golden Temple or Rock Temple. I stuck to my plan of visiting Rock temple, because I feared auto driver may trick us. While Rock ... Read more

Nonetheless here's my compilation of 2019 long weekends. You can use ... Read more
