Comino Island

Comino Island

To us, there was no better antidote to relieve our stresses and rejuvenate on our honeymoon than anchoring a small boat in the shallow bays where the Mediterranean sea meets the crystal clear water that surrounds Comino Island. Situated between Malta and Gozo, Comino is the…

Gozo Island

Turks & Caicos

Delhi, India

Delhi, India

Delhi was the second last stop of our trip. As the second most populous city in India, it is big, busy, loud, and intense. Quite the contrast as we were coming from the small and quiet city of Agra. Delhi was the only…

Kochi, Kerala

Kochi, Kerala

If I could go back to any one place, right at this very moment, I would choose South India. My idea of the perfect secluded getaway would be locked away on a houseboat and floating around the backwaters of Kerala.
