Berlin! Berlin! Wir fahren nach Berlin!.

Maha Kumbh 2013 – An Experience

Barcelona – Gaudi Gaudi Everywhere

A quick 1 Hour 15 minute early morning flight from Madrid brought us to Barcelona right in time for breakfast. We took a train from the airport to the city, which was surprisingly free of cost. I am not sure if that is the case always but maybe it was just because it was Christmas. We …
