Paris in a day- Travelogue

Paris in a day!

They say that ‘A bad day in Paris is still better than a good day anywhere else’. And you can only testify for the same once you are back from Paris. Actually, you never come back from Paris. You leave a piece of your heart there. That’s the magic of the beautiful and majestic Paris, which I’m sure is unlike any other place on this planet. Or at least I’m obsessed with it!

Last year, I had the chance to visit Paris for a few days for work, but the first day for me was completely free, so I decided to travel as much as possible and cover as many best tourist places in Paris as I possibly could. Here’s what you can do too is you wanna see Paris in a day, especially when you don’t wanna get on one of those hop-on-hop-off buses coz who likes routines!

First off, I took the Paris Metro and reached Pont Alexandre III. It is a beautiful arch bridge that spans river Sienne. A beautiful bridge in itself, this one point will offer you a view of Paris Eye, Les Invalides and the tops of the Eiffel Tower in a gorgeous panoramic view. You could spend some time here and just soak in the ‘feel’ of Paris all around you.

DoubleTree by Hilton, Agra: Review

Hey everyone! We recently went down to Agra, the city of love, for another trip. The close vicinity of this place from Delhi makes it an ideal weekend getaway destination from Delhi. This time around, we travelled by the new Gatimaan Express which takes you from Delhi to Agra in exactly 90 minutes. In Agra, we stayed at DoubleTree by Hilton this time. Since we have already seen the Taj Mahal quite a few times (check last travelogue here), we decided to skip another trip to it and lounge in the hotel itself! Read on for the details on this luxury property in Agra!double-tree-by-hilton-agra-review-travel-blog Continue reading DoubleTree by Hilton, Agra: Review

Plaza Premium Lounge at New Delhi Airport: Review

Frequent travel is a part and parcel of today’s hectic lifestyle for most of us. So many of us spend a good portion of our time strutting in and out of airports. And when you are a frequent flyer, all you want to do once you have checked-in at the airport is to relax somewhere. And trust me, after one point and one too many visits, the shopping options at the airport do not allure you anymore.

But not any more! I was recently travelling international from the New Delhi International Airport, and decided to stop by Plaza Premium Lounge before my flight. Read on for the deets!
