All Aboard The Magical Le Train du Chocolat!

Chocolate Train

The Chocolate Train – A Travelogue Switzerland’s Chocolate Train is a tour that is eagerly anticipated by children and adults alike. I left Fribourg on a crisp and somewhat chilly morning, to reach Montreux by 8.30am. The train, which looks rather grand in its black and golden avatar, leaves at…

Japan – A Travelogue

Travel to Japan

Japan: Enlightening And Enriching Experience I particularly liked Kyoto and would like to go back there some day, although I’d be hard pressed to tell you why. Perhaps it was that it was warmer (the vibes, definitely not the weather! Was bloody five degrees!) and friendlier? Perhaps that one got…

Vietnam: A Travelogue

Halong Bay Vietnam

Vietnam: Do(n)gone it! To be honest, Vietnam happened to me for the flimsiest of reasons. It wasn’t on my bucket or even basin, list! I just had air miles to cash in on and figured, why not Vietnam, given my penchant for a nomadic lifestyle. Somewhere, I also had a…

Koh Samet

Koh Samet – also known as Koh Samed – is another neat little island fairly close to Bangkok, toward the east. It’s in Rayong province, just a little over two hours from Pattaya and four hours from Bangkok. Since I’m already in Pattaya, the plan is to go on further…

Sukothai On Wheels

Sukothai

I set off for Sukothai completely on a whim. Living in the chaotic city of Bangkok with its glittering skyline and pulsating nightlife, the thought criss-crossed my mind vaguely that it might be kinda fun to check out what the erstwhile capital of the Kingdom of Siam looked like. With…
