8 Reasons Why Brooklyn is Pretty Awesome

On my recent trip to New York, I opted to stay in Brooklyn. Because let’s face it, Manhattan is superb but accommodation is frightfully expensive. Our trip was also a pretty last minute thing that fell into place just a month or so before traveling, so all the nice and reasonable options were no longer available to us.

But like they say, everything happens for the best, because Brooklyn turned out to be pretty great!

Meandering around Manhattan with Walks of New York

I truly believe that the best way to experience a city, to really soak it up; is on foot. An aimless amble down an alleyway, or a saunter down a street; there’s nothing quite like the thrill of discovery in a new place.

8 Fabulous Ways to Experience New York

I’m on a quest to Take12Trips this year, and it’s going VERY well so far. :)
In January I visited Mumbai and in February I took another quick trip to Mussoorie; I explored the Delhi Zoo in March and had a fantastic time traipsing around Europe in April. In May I went off to Shimla up in the hills to escape Delhi’s unbearable heat and in June a work trip took me to Manila, Philippines. I’m yet to blog about that, but I’m going to skip straight ahead to the updates on July as they’re way more awesome!

Monthly Instagram Roundup – July 2014

July has always been my favourite month of the year. Its Birthday month, after all!
So like I usually do, I ate out a lot, spent time with family, went out with friends, I’m sure you know the drill! But unlike any previous year, my #Take12Trips challenge had me boarding a plane and flying across the globe.

I’m in NYC baby…  :D

I’m only halfway through my holiday so far, and after a bit of a rough start, NYC is beginning to seduce me. So I’m off to experience it some more, and this will be a short and sweet update.

Here’s a look back at the past month, through Instagram.

The Oriental Set-Lunch at Guppy by Ai, Lodhi Colony Market

A few years ago, quite a few youngsters clued in to Delhi’s fickle party circuit were devastated when yet another popular bar closed down. What they didn’t realize was that there was another segment of people equally crestfallen at the loss of GOOD Japanese food.

3 Days in Shimla – The Perfect Itinerary for First Timers

I’m on a quest to Take12Trips this year, and it’s going well so far. After a weekend getaway to Mumbai in January, followed by another quick trip to Mussoorie in February; a day at the Delhi Zoo in March and a fantastic week in Europe in April; Delhi’s unbearable heat in the month of May had me escaping to the hills.

Monthly Instagram Roundup – June 2014 and LifeOnMyPlate’s First Blogiversary :)

July is here, my favourite month of the year!
Its Birthday month!!!

But before I get carried away with the Birthday mania I’ve been known to get afflicted by, it’s time for the monthly flashback. June was a jam-packed month, if Instagram is to be believed.
So many meals, so many drinks; and a trip to Manila thrown in for good measure.
Take12Trips challenge: So Far So Good! :)

But the highlight of the past month, which sadly I did not celebrate on Instagram (strangely neither on Facebook or WordPress, for that matter), was that LifeOnMyPlate turned a year old. I honestly still can’t believe it!

But now; One Year, 70+ Posts and 14 Thousand Hits later, here we are!
Every one who’s been a part of this journey, both offline and online, I love you all! Thank you so much for all the support, feedback and encouragement. We wouldn’t be here without you. :)

Anyway… to continue where we left off, here’s a look back at the past month, through Instagram.

Introducing GourmetItUp’s new 6-Course experience at Hao Shi Nian Niann

Hao Shi Nian Niann is a speciality Chinese (Sichuan) restaurant located in the M-Block Market of Greater Kailash 2, and they are the latest to partner with GourmetItUp, a culinary web-portal that offers specially curated course meals to its members. I wrote all about GourmetItUp here in case you want to refresh your memory. You really should go sign up guys; they’re getting better day by day. A little birdie told me Olive just linked up with them as well (*does a little happy dance).

Sights and Sounds of Salzburg

Raindrops on tulips on a cold windy morning;
the sunshine was whimsy as we went exploring.

Cream coloured buildings and crisp apple strudels;
green copper domes but no schnitzel with noodles.

A silver white winter had melted to spring;
Salzburg truly showed me some of my favourite things.
