David

Copy of ‘The David’ at Piazzale Michelangelo. The original by Michelangelo is at Accademia di Belle Arti (“Academy of Fine Arts”) in Florence. Number of copies are placed around Florence but none as perfect and as imposing as the original. Unfortunately, photography was not allowed in the Accademia 😦

Blenheim


S and I visited Blenheim Palace with a couple of friends in 2008. What a beautiful place it is…especially the gardens. Heaven on Earth! I will recommend everyone to visit the place…atleast once.  Don’t bother buying a ticket to get into the palace itself, nothing much to see. Stick to the outdoors. It’s absolutely beautiful!


Venice

Venice - 1

Hubby and I spent a week in Italy. Venice from the Grand canal with the view of  Rialto Bridge at a distance

A Bike Ride

The best way to see India is on a two wheeler….a Bike (not a bicycle) 😛 S and I were on our way to Araku Valley from Vizag. The trip was totally awesome. We started early in the morning…when the streets were still foggy. Stopped at a local ‘restaurant’ and had some really oily puris 😉 and a glass of wonderful ‘chai’. The most amazing part was trekking to a waterfall and relaxing on Vizag’s highest railway track (if not AP’s) 😀

Trevi Fountain

This photograph of the famous Trevi Fountain was taken way back in 2006. I could not get a complete shot of the fountain since the place was very crowded. Rome is one of our holiday spots…full of history and beautiful architecture.
