  2. That's a fabulous list Rashmi. We have a lot in common - ginger tea, travel and a productive day to name a few :)
    I am sorry I did not recognize you on FB but this one is good to say I know you :)

    1. Hey Parul. I read your travel blogs recently. Looks like you had an amazing trip to Hong Kong. I would love to share my thoughts in the comments section, but since most of the blog reading happens on my mobile it becomes difficult ( or lazy) to publish. We had to pour some ginger tea and sit to chat our travel stories:) Thanks for reading and sorry for the late response though.


A word with me! Thanks for dropping by:)
