Temples of Taipei

The reason I wanted to go to Taipei was pretty much because I'd been to many of the larger South-Eastern cities, except Taipei. And because I always feel very at ease in SE Asian cities, a trip to Taipei seemed like the right thing to do.

Travelling to Iran

When I told people, I was going on holidays to Iran, I got not just a few, but many a raised eyebrow. Are you crazy? Is it safe? Why in the world are you going there? Were only a few of the questions that were thrown at me.

Russian Food at Zima

My quest for ethnic food in London recently brought me to Frith Street in Soho for a Russian lunch at Zima; an airy eatery smack in the middle of buzzy Soho. It offers traditional Russian food with a modern twist and of course lots of vodka. I liked its airy feel and casual d├ęcor and if you choose a table by the window it’s an amazing place for a spot of people watching.

It took a while for someone to come over to take my order, but in their defence, there were no other customers there and I ninja-ed to my table by the window.

The place wasn’t exactly hopping with other eaters, but having said that, I was there at noonish on a Saturday. People did start popping in by the time I had finished my food.
