I am a Masters in Nutrition from Lady Irwin but a teacher of English by profession and now I run a Senior Secondary School of my own. I am also an author and have ten published books to my credit on Spoken English and Grammar for students and keen adult learners. Some contradictions in life have made it interesting and I have enjoyed this journey for 64 years now. A keen traveller, I travelled with my husband,through India while he served the nation as an army officer, Now after retirement, he is my partner in running the school and travelling overseas lands. We started travelling late in life but since 2005 we have travelled every year to a new destination. Each year we travel for a month plus and discover a part of the world. Starting with 𝐔𝗦𝗔, we travelled through 𝗨𝗞, 𝗙𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝐒𝐩𝐚𝐢𝐧, 𝐒𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐡 𝐀𝐟𝐫𝐢𝐜𝐚 , 𝐄𝐠𝐲𝐩𝐭, 𝐓𝐮𝐫𝐤𝐞𝐲, 𝐉𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐚𝐧, 𝐃𝐮𝐛𝐚𝐢, 𝐒𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐚𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐞, 𝐀𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐚, 𝐍𝐞𝐰 𝐙𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐝, 𝐂𝐚𝐧𝐚𝐝𝐚, 𝐉𝐚𝐩𝐚𝐧, 𝐂𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐚 𝐕𝐢𝐞𝐭𝐧𝐚𝐦, 𝐂𝐚𝐦𝐛𝐨𝐝𝐢𝐚, 𝐋𝐚𝐨𝐬, 𝐌𝐞𝐱𝐢𝐜𝐨, 𝐈𝐧𝐝𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐢𝐚, 𝐑𝐮𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐚, 𝐔𝐳𝐛𝐞𝐤𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐧, 𝐆𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐜𝐞, 𝐂𝐫𝐚𝐨𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐚, 𝐏𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐝, 𝐇𝐮𝐧𝐠𝐚𝐫𝐮 𝐂𝐳𝐞𝐜𝐡 𝐑𝐞𝐩𝐮𝐛𝐥𝐢𝐜, 𝐁𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐬𝐥𝐚𝐯𝐚, 𝐆𝐞𝐫𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐲, 𝐃𝐞𝐧𝐦𝐚𝐫𝐤, 𝐍𝐨𝐫𝐰𝐚𝐲, 𝐅𝐢𝐧𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐝, 𝐍𝐞𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐬, 𝐀𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐚, 𝐒𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐳𝐞𝐫𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐝, 𝐈𝐭𝐚𝐥𝐲, 𝐋𝐣𝐮𝐛𝐣𝐚𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐚 ,𝐛𝐞𝐬𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐬 𝐧𝐞𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐍𝐞𝐩𝐚𝐥, 𝐁𝐡𝐮𝐭𝐚𝐧, 𝐒𝐫𝐢 𝐋𝐚𝐧𝐤𝐚 - Exploring and educating ourselves. We do not believe in guided or group tours and prefer to read about countries and go well informed with guides and translation apps so that we can experience the joy of discovery. We take public transport as far as possible to get the local feel and prefer Homestays,BNB or aparthotels. I write the day's experience on FB with pictures, without fail so that memories do not dim or get blurred with time. Recently I have taken to writing a travel Blog though for pictures I refer to the FB pictures. This year when COVID ruined our travel plans, I travelled virtually, as per our plan for 40 days and enjoyed it almost as much! There was enough in my memories od travel of 15 years and the homework done in the preceding 6 months to make it real not only for the readers but also for me!
