A glimpse of Nicaragua in 72 hours

 

It was September 2019, I was flying to Nicaragua, the largest country in Central America but it is less known to tourists. However, it has awakened to the strategic importance of tourism and aims to show its hidden beauties to the world.

We began our explorations in the north of Managua and arrived in Selva Negra Ecolodge, 12 kilometers from the town of Matagalpa. We only stayed one night at Hotel Selva Negra. My wooden cottage with a deck was set in a nature reserve environment within a forest, surrounded by a farm and coffee plantation. There were two lakes, one of them in front of the restaurant and the reception area.

Dining at Hilton London Croydon

Our stay at Hilton London Croydon gave us the great opportunity to see London from a different perspective. After a day exploring what Croydon has to offer including spending time in Croydon’s large shopping center (called the Whitgift Centre), and walking in Lloyd Park near the hotel, now it was time to treat ourselves to a romantic and memorable evening. We sat at a reserved table in a quiet corner of the Lounge Bar. There is also the Larder restaurant in the hotel, which offers a different ambiance.

The hidden paradise of Raja Ampat

 

Raja Ampat is a hidden paradise in the remote westernmost part of Indonesia with breathtaking views of Raja Ampat islands.

After a 10-hour Qatar Airways flight from London to Jakarta, a day’s rest at the Hotel Bandara International, conveniently located near the airport, I took another 6-hour flight to Sorong, but the journey wasn’t over yet. A twenty-minute drive to the harbor, where a speedboat was waiting for us to carve our way through choppy waters on the final 3-hour leg of my journey

The Royal Heritage of Bhopal’s Begums – Part 2

The Royal Heritage of Bhopal’s Begums – Part 2

Bhopal is not India’s capital, but it has all the features and reflects the great highlights of the country. Bhopal is actually the capital of Madhya Pradesh State. There was a time that Bhopal was the heart of an independent State. The city was forced to join the union of India in 1949, but since then the royalty attention has faded and the city’s monuments have been neglected.  However, there are still signs of the glory days to be seen in the ruins of the palaces and old mansions. My guide told me that the local government has become more aware of tourism, so there are plans to restore and refurbish these architectural remainders of the Nawab era. I could see, in the center of the city, that work had already started. The restoration process should result in a brighter future for this historic city

Exploring Goa: The Portuguese Heritage – Part 2

Exploring Goa: The Portuguese Heritage – Part 2

Old Goa still reflects its era of European occupation and influence. The Portuguese, as one of the best-known western powers in the 16th Century, invaded countries in the east. They advanced with full force to stay on the western coast of India, but the hand of fate reversed their destiny and overshadowed their presence after four and a half centuries. Their cultural influence and amalgamation with the Indian civilisation remain. There are no longer any Portuguese among the population, but their architecture has left a lasting mark on this region. I was amazed to see many churches, chapels, monasteries and convents in Old Goa. Religion is the theme that keeps the bond of culture and tradition alive through these monuments.

Insider Guide to Marrakech, Morocco

Insider Guide to Marrakech, Morocco

As I approached Marrakech after a three-and half-hour flight from London, my excitement grew. It was like coming to a meeting with a dear friend as that’s what Marrakech is to me. I love the city’s high red walls, the hustle and bustle of the souk, bantering and bartering with the traders and enjoying the simple but tasty food. Like me, many writers, painters & poets have been attracted to this iconic location.

The Royal Heritage of Bhopal’s Begums (Part 1) – Jehan Numa Palace

 

While our world is still male dominated it might be amazing for us to find a state in India that was once ruled by women in the 19th century. However, it is true in the case of Bhopal. Only a century after the city of Bhopal was founded in 1707 by Nawab Dost Muhammad Khan, the princely power was transferred to the Begums of Bhopal in 1819. The Begum means a Muslim woman of high rank
