If there's a place that can make you think of Maldives as a family destination - it is Dhigali.A post shared by Qatar Blog by Khansa (@creativitywithkay) on Dec 23, 2017 at 9:42am PSTIf you have had a chance to read my previous blog post on the Maldives, then you know what the weather was like when we were in the Maldives.The journey to this resort was also perhaps one of the scariest I have had in my life. It might come second to when an aircraft I was on dipped an almost 90 degrees angle, and what turned out to be a 3 hour flight eventually ended up being a 12 hour
Turquoise blue waters, white sands, tropical weather - this is what a dream vacation sounds like.This is what Maldives is all about. That is the good part or the part we hear more often about.
We arrived at Male on the morning of 5th September. The weather can be quite unpredictable in the Maldives. During our stay it was a mix of sunshine, thunderstorms, wild waves, and blue skies. We were taken from the International Airport to a waiting lounge of the resort near the
As I sit here drained out off my energy, I go back to think of what my getaway in the Ritz Carlton was like.As a blogger sometimes a staycation can be a little more tiring. So this time while at the Ritz, I made sure all I would do was relax and unwind. And, that’s what I did.We checked in on Friday with the Farmer's brunch. The food is so fresh there and there were two things that kept pulling me back to keep trying more and more of it - the beetroot hummus and the avocado
The Old Bazaar is arguably the most popular tourist attraction in Skopje, situated in the old part of Skopje and just a short walk from the main square it's easily reached and explored. The Old Bazaar has characteristics and dynamics of its own kind and it is a survivor of many wars, occupations and cultural and religious changes. It, also remains the oldest living witness of the history of this region as every kingdom and empire, every regime and every rule have let its traces on the rocks of
I always remembered the country Macedonia. It wasn't a place that I heard newly. I have always been deeply interested in both Geography and History, and no I don't want to boast here but, I can say I am not bad with places. But, getting to Macedonia - well, atleast in 2017, it wasn't on my plan at all. I am not even sure why Macedonia sticks out so much in my head. I think it has to do with reading something long back that has to do with King Midas - the king with the gold touch ( whatever he
The best place to stay if you are in Skopje is the Skopje Marriott. You don't have to think twice about this. Centrally located in the Skopje Square with a walking distance from so many places to see and discover, and very new amenities all around, I can totally tell you that it is a beautiful hotel to be in.I decided to write this post more so because I wanted to share most of the pictures that I had taken from the hotel. Pictures do speak a lot more than words. In and Around the Hotel I
I have never been that list making person when it comes to my blog. However, I thought for readers from outside and within Doha, it would be easier to follow through if I made it into a listGet your dose of Japanese Indulgence at Megu Qatar in Porto Arabia. This is one of my favorite restaurants and a must-try if you make it to the pearl. The service, and the food is just impeccable.
The Himalayas have always been this mountain range I have wanted to see if not all at least a glimpse of it to begin with. And so we decided to take this trip to Manali impromptu. Our original plan was to visit Sikkim which we now left for a later time.I think this is the riskiest journey I have ever been on. We took a bus ride to Manali. Manali is a valley nestled between the mountains and is at a height of 6398 ft above sea level. Now, that is pretty high!Manali isn't
Time and time again, I have heard and read the story behind the building of Taj Mahal. It always amazed me how one building could look so different every time of the day. How it changed its color depending on the light cast on it.I remember reading about it as a kid. I remember seeing the different pictures of it in magazines, and newspapers back in the days of no internet. I remember reading my sister's research paper in university. She had cutouts of different pictures of the Taj Mahal
