India is one of the most beautiful, fascinating, vibrant and culturally exciting countries on the planet. Sure, being half Indian I’m a little biased, but I’m sure many will tell you the same! However, it’s so different in so many ways that it can be a difficult place to visit, from the sheer amount of options when planning, to getting about safely and easily while you’re there. I’ve been visiting since I was a child, so I’ve picked up a few tips and tricks to make things easier along the way that I thought I’d share.
Italy is probably one of my favourite countries to visit in Europe. The food is amazing (I could eat pizza every meal, every day, and not get bored. Probably wouldn’t be too good for my waistline though..), the scenery is beautiful, the cities bustling. It has something for everyone, from romantic getaways (hello, Venice!) to short city breaks (Florence, Rome..), and everything in between. Not to mention it’s super Insta-friendly, from Cinque Terre and Burano to the gorgeous Amalfi Coast. Man, just typing about it has got me itching to book another trip..
My favourite thing about travelling to a new place is always trying the food, and I was excited to see what Cuba had to offer. The promise of cheap seafood, plenty of meat (I’m pescetarian 99% of the time, but when on holiday I relax my rules in favour of trying the local fare), and exotic new veggies had me excited to explore the country – via my taste buds. Also, not technically food, but I was looking forward to the MOJITOS. Keep em coming please bartender!
