Delhi, or "Dilli" as the locals would call it has been on my places to visit for as far as I can remember. Learning about Indian history growing up, the Mughal dynasty and India's seat of power, Delhi embodies a kind of whimsical yet ancient vibe. Being India's #1 metropolitan city and boasting a population of 4.6 million people, Delhi has grown into an eclectic hub of culture, arts and urban jaunts.
Having lived in Texas for sometime now, Mexico City was on my travel list for a while. Voted as the #1 place to travel on the NYTimes "52 Places to Go in 2016" list, the largest Spanish speaking city in the world had me fascinated!
It was last year when I was driving from San Diego to LA that I came across these string of beach towns that just blew my mind. Right from Dana Point to Newport Beach, I was getting wide-eyed in stages. While at that time I had a flight to catch, I vowed to return to one of these ethereal beach towns on the SoCal coast.
Palm Springs has been on my list for a while! Originally I thought of going to Coachella this year, but then opted for something more chill during my birthday week, which happened to be right before 'Cella craziness would hit the valley.
Dubai is home. My family moved there when I was three. I've seen it rise from the sand dunes into the bustling metropolis it is today. I've never been more proud of its growth, especially when I tell people I'm from Dubai and watch them gush in awe!
Being Indian, I've always wished to see more of India. Having moved to Dubai at a very young age, I haven't had the chance to explore India as much as I'd have liked. This year, I took a trip to Kerala, the southernmost state of India.
