Palais Garnier – Opera House, Paris

Palais Garnier Opera House

If you would want to witness some brilliant architecture combined with luxury along with an opera or ballet performance, then Palais Garnier in Paris is the place where you should be! Built in 19th century, the opera house’s majestic grandeur and the various paintings including that of Chagall in the main auditorium will keep you spell bound. On the day of my visit to Palais Garnier, a ballet performance was held and I was more than happy to opt for the show instead of just having a tour of the Opera House.

Royal Palace & Art Gallery, Thanjavur (Tanjore)

Beautiful murals in the art gallery

Normally whenever I visit my granny in Thanjavur (Tanjore), I end up spending most of the time lazing around or at the max visiting the Brihadeeswarar Temple (Big Temple). But this time while returning back from the temple I decided to take a different route back home and that’s when I came across the Royal Palace and the art gallery. This palace which is partially in ruins and partially renovated is unlike any palace I have seen till date. I won’t say that this palace is very grand architectural wise but there is some charm to it which makes it a must visit if you ever visit Thanjavur.

Interactive Travel Video: Exploring Rome

Colosseum

Guest Post by Jacob Laukaitis 

When in Italy, how can you not visit Rome? Before coming to Rome we didn’t have a plan on what to see or what to do. We visited most of the well known places Rome has to offer but also wandered around the city. We walked everywhere – and I mean everywhere. Therefore we saw a lot of hidden gems a bit further away from the touristy areas. This was my first time in Rome and the city exceeded my expectations. I was expecting it to feel more like a big city, but it didn’t. We stayed in Rome for 3 days and I think it’s enough to explore the Old Town part of Rome. Obviously if you want to explore the outskirts, a lot of its restaurants and cafes, then you’d need years for that 🙂

A walk under the sea – Mauritius

Undersea Walk

Mauritius is undoubtedly a paradise for water lovers. It offers you umpteen number of options to select from the various sea and water excursion activities available. When I had been to Mauritius, keeping my budget in mind, I opted for two activities: ‘Undersea Walk’ and ‘Parasailing’. These two came in a package along with lunch, so I was happy to go for it.
