Life on the edge….of a forest! When the opportunity came knocking at our doors,to visit the famous Jim Corbett Wildlife…
Last month we had an exclusive opportunity of visiting an offbeat city called Chita, in Siberia. Chita has several nicknames but one that struck us as odd was “City of Exiles”.
On the very first day we visited the Decembrists’ Church Museum (originally called the Church of Archangel Michael), where we learned how it had earned that unique sobriquet. In Russian it is called Музей декабристов.
Many of you may know that we were all set for going to Siberia. Next step was to apply for a Russian visa.
We applied and received the passports just today. With this experience in hand we thought of documenting the entire process of how to apply for Russian Visa for Indian citizens, so that it may be helpful to our fellow citizens.
Nisha and I have been to Thailand many times before. Doing a day trip to Ayutthaya was on the cards for quite a while but for some reason Ayutthaya had always eluded us. Last time when we got the chance, we grabbed it with both hands. So here is our things to do in Ayutthaya, the historic city, located about 90KM North of Bangkok. Now we can say Thailand holidays are incomplete without a tour of Ayutthaya. So after reading this go ahead and integrate Ayutthaya itinerary into your Thailand itinerary.

One of the things I said last time while discussing “Managing Finances while travelling” that I would be writing about saving while travelling. However, I feel I have missed an important topic, that of Insurance for travellers. Insurance is an essential aspect of travel that is needed to be discussed even before managing expenses
Colourful Umbrellas always at hand! Insurance against a rainy day!
We had been wanting to write on this topic of managing money during travel, for a long time. Having travelled reasonably far and wide (40+ countries), a lot of people ask us, how to manage finance on the go, what type of savings account we use and tips for making the travel fund last longer. At this point, we will just touch upon the How to manage finance while travelling And leave the second question for another article 😊.
For the last couple of decades or so, we are all used to seeing cards in hotels informing us of ecological conservation and protecting the environment programme and do we want to reuse bed linens and towels. This has been a huge success in saving resources in various forms and of course conserving clean water. But what about bath products? Is there a thing called recycled soaps?
