A weekend in Sydney ..

Last weekend, we packed the car with a few clothes, lots of snacks, a couple of children books, our beach things, good music, plenty of patience, and took off on an 9 hour long journey to Sydney. It was a beautiful drive and it was definitely a highlight for me to be driving alongside uphill…

Beaching at the Brighton

I was craving for a trip to the ocean this weekend. To walk along the coast, feel the coarse sand between my toes, hear the waves roar and crash, watch the kids make sand castles and dip their toes (and head in Hamza’s case) in the water. Salt air was calling. So, on Saturday, after…

Life in the city :: Arcades edition

Funny story: today on my way back to the apartment from one of our strolls around the city, I was stopped by a middle aged local woman, who was apparently lost and asked me for directions to the Flinders Station. ME. Who is always pushing the stroller with one hand and catching up on google…

White Night

Friends and followers, today I give you the night — The White Night. Australia’s most celebrated cultural event. Thousands of locals and visitors come together for a 12-hour celebration of arts and culture and performances. Melbourne doesn’t sleep that night. They say its larger than the New Year’s Eve. So how could we sleep? We…

Queen Victoria Night Market

Strolling through an open-air market is an experience of its own. Passing by the small, pop- up stalls; spotting the vintage treasures; the colorful, the vibrant, the battered and dusty goods; the smell of hot street food and the aroma of baked treats, the chatty, bohemian vendors; the rip-offs and the bargains, the community vibes…

Melbourne Laneways

I have always found myself drawn to the big cities. To the noise, to the culture, to the food, to the people — to the true essence of what makes a big city so big. I thrive on the hustle bustle of crowds and the traffic and the people going on about there everyday lives,…

Touchdown in Melbourne !

My quiet ways on the blog these days have nothing to do with the writer’s block. You know those moments that define and change your life, thats pretty much happening these days. I have flown across the globe, solo with the boys, and have landed in Melbourne. For good. Thats pretty big as far as…

Packing Light while Traveling

The magic of travel does not lie in carrying, but in leaving behind. It’s not about recreating the same world we live in at home, piece by piece, but in exploring a different world altogether. I have always been a traveller. I have always been a dreamer. I dream about faraway places and the people living there…

Katas Raj Photos !

The culture, the language, the smells, the food, the religion, the beautiful brown people and the stunning fair-skinned ones too, the resources or the lack-of, the traditions and the celebrations, the salt in the air, the fertile soil, the generous spirit, the rice fields, the highest peaks, the magnificent and unforgiving dessert — all are…

Doha Photos !

I have a ton of photos to share from our weekend getaway to Doha, preferably before we embark on our next weekend adventure. I shared the video of our trip a few days ago, you can catch it here if you haven’t already. We spent a few hours one morning roaming around Souq Waif. They…
