Waking up to this...
This is Langkawi, Malaysia.
We started our Malaysia trip from Kaula Lampur. Stayed there for a night and partied at Bukit Bintang- the”party street” . Its a street with bars and pubs on either side and swanky terrace cafes.
Post our “pub hopping” session we went on to the street “Jalan Alor”. Its the place to be for all the foodies reading this. It was a street food heaven !!!
It had a variety of cuisines being cooked and served on the streets- bigger vendors had modest seating arrangements too. Believe me you, its one of the biggest street food markets i have come across !
I am saying this despite being from India where we basically eat from street vendors on a daily basis !!
And the arrangement was pretty convenient too-party at one street and walk back to another for a meal later before heading back home. Haha!
Next morning we took a bus to Cameron Highlands to explore the gorgeous tea gardens and pretty streets. It was comparitively chilly and the hilly slope were fun to walk on to explore this tiny gem of a place.
We stayed in a small hostel. Clean , hygienic and no frills attached.
Next morning a short bus ride combined with some time on ferry led us to Georgetown.
Honestly Penang in Georgetown blew our minds away. The art on the streets was jawdropping.
The entire day we spent boomerang”ing” with the graffiti and the art.
The city map was like a treasurehunt describing what street art and where to find it.
It was a fun fun day and post that we headed to penang hill in a hilltop “rail”.
Just when we were beginning to think Penang was the highlight of the trip —>Langkawi was waiting for us with its pristine waters and amazing food and this was the view we were welcomed with every single day for the rest of our trip.
What do you do when you are sorrounded by gorgeous tulips in a beautiful garden that you always wished to see but never got a chance earlier?
You stand like an idiot in the center of the flowers and smile ear to ear 😁
Yep! Thats me :)

This is Venice, undoubtedly the most dreamy place in the World!
You ask why? Its a city built on water for Christ sakes...
People have houses and “boats” ... Boats not cars.
Water taxis and water buses
Its another world ☀️☀️☀️☀️ It is unfortunate that i was only there for a day.
Took an overnight train from Rome to reach Venice at 5 am in the morning.
Waited for the washroom at the train station to “open” / become functional for public.
After getting freshened up and washing the train journey off me.
I walked around the lanes not crowded with tourists for a change ( perks of reaching early).
Post having my breakfast the place i went straight to St Mark’s bell tower. It was on the TOP ( see what i did there ;) )of my list.
It was originally built as a lighthouse to assist navigation in the lagoon. I was whisked by an elevator to the top of the tower by paying some 18 Euros ( YES 18 big euros !!!!) But the view was worth it. I actually saw the whole of Venice from the top in what 15 minutes 😛‼️
