Delhi Oh Delhi



I recently went for 5 days to New Delhi (and 3.5 days to Vadodara) as part of my holiday in India. We stayed in the Diplomatic Enclave area of Chanakyapuri city district and witnessed the Republic Day parade on 26th January. We are tons of butter chicken!!

Jay Maharashtra




I’m currently staying just outside the Maharashtra city of Mumbai, near a place called Alibag. One thing I have noticed about Marathis is they are very proud of their state. It’s very beautiful and there are many contrasts here.

Mumbai fog


For my trip abroad tomorrow, the first part of India I’ll make contact with is (wait for it…) Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (IATA: BOM, ICAO: VABB), also known by its previous nick of Sahar Int’l Airport. This airport serves the hectic metropolis of Mumbai. I’ll be staying at a country house near Nallasopara, a surburban town outside the city. To give you a flavour of what Mumbai is like, I present to you this foggy GIFwork by Aaron Lopez.

Welcome to India


Tomorrow I’ll be going to India on holiday for two weeks. One of the experiences of India everyone is familiar with is its crazy traffic. Drivers seem to have the devil on their shoulder and traffic rules are healthily disregarded. But just sometimes, the pedestrians strike back.

Vijay’s classic GIFs 2007-2011 – 220


With hindsight… and a very dirty hot tub, Jasmine realised that maybe that big bowl of five-bean chilli was probably not such a good idea.

Down the Tubes


I have just been reading this fascinating article on Tube stations here in London, then and now. Several stations are mentioned, with special slider galleries showing the station’s entrance in the past and how they look now, side-by-side. The article by TimeOut can be seen here. For those of you curious about which is my nearest Tube station, it would be Plaistow, with Canning Town being second closest.

The man in the mirror – if it worked for Tom Selleck, then surely it will work for me too.
