Decembrists’ Church Museum, Chita

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.

Follow Up Siberia Contest

Robert Powell, the famous British actor, once said, “I have a number of places on my wishlist …….I have a passion for wilderness and Siberia is on my list – however that may be a bridge too far”.

Our (Nisha’s and Vasu’s) own wishlist has sported Siberia for a long time but Yay! Thanks to #FollowupSiberia, we are about to cross that imaginary bridge that eluded Robert Powell. 😀

Day Trip to Ayutthaya, the Second Capital of Thailand

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.

Importance of Insurance for Travellers

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
