Introduction

Hi Rahul

Thanks for the follow *, as the reason I write is to share.
* (Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera # in “real life”, rather than in cyberspace!)

# By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

(get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

* or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

“total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time)

Who says men can’t multi-task!

Kind regards and happy travelling

Travel and Music

Welcome to travel and music everyone!

My name is Rahul and I am from Bangalore. Currently I am a second year MBA graduate in my 6th semester of my studies. (Everyone knows that once you get to 6th semester you get some free time 🙂 ).

I’ve created this blog frankly because I have been feeling really bored and restless lately. So I decided to write about two things I really like doing: travelling to new places and enjoying great music. Also I guess, this would be a great experience is sharing some of my experiences and at the same time gaining insights about travelling experiences and musical tastes of others.

I have had the opportunity to visit some great countries so far:- This includes, India, Philippines, South Africa, Russia, Denmark, Sweden, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand. I would be posting some blogs regarding some interesting places I have…
