The ‘travel bug’ or whatever fancy name, in recent times, is associated with the thrill of an upcoming journey – is an unparalleled feeling. Be it in the packing or adding additional items after the ‘final’ packing is done, the excitement runs high. Invariably, we end up forgetting something vital, often inconsequential things like handkerchiefs… Continue reading Get, set, go!
There is something so incredibly special about that first cup of degree coffee in the morning. Be it in the distinct aroma of the thick decoction or the bubbles of the froth on the surface of the dark liquid, many independent parameters need to be perfect for the cup of coffee to be good. Mess… Continue reading For a cup of coffee!
Disclaimer: I’m going to offend a lot of tennis fans by displaying my absolute ignorance of the sport in this post. Anyone who loves the sport very much can give this post a miss.
