Photos from Gunby Hall

Taking advantage of the bank holiday, Ashwina and I took a trip to Gunby Hall which is a National Trust property in Skegness. The Orchard Cottage located in the property grounds is the former gardeners cottage and is a quaint little house. This turned out to be a great way to enjoy a quiet weekend

Happy New Year 2016

Happy New Year to everyone reading this. I wish you the very best for 2016. It’s definitely going to be more awesome than 2015. 2015 – Year in Review For a change at the start of 2015, I didn’t make any major resolutions, but instead decided to take the year as it came. What’s the

I am waiting for Christmas, are you?

Back in September I took my core leave… well over two weeks of which I spent an entire week coding 2.x of Contextual Related Posts. Having released the new version of Contextual Related Posts, we set out on a nice holiday across the Republic of Ireland. While it’s supposed to be part of post that

Thank you Mrs. D’Souza

This post is 3 weeks overdue. But, like they say, better late than never! Some of you might know that I celebrated my birthday on August 16. And, this time around, Ashwina decided that she was going to spare no expense, which works perfectly to my advantage 😉 The first thing amongst them all was my

The Tower of London – Take 2

A few weeks ago, Ashwina and I decided to get out and enjoy the bit of good weather that we have had of late. While it was still below 15 degrees and chilly, it was comfortable enough to not cover up with several layers of clothing. The destination was the Tower of London. We are

Cornwall – Pentargon

After a disappointing visit to Bude, Ashwina and I decided that we would stick to Boscastle and explore Penally Hill. During our previous trips around the area, we had noticed the coastal pathway that takes you to Pentargon waterfall. I checked out the details of the same on the South West Coast Path. This is a

Cornwall – Bude

We had planned to visit Bude, which is further North, along the coast. We took the 595 Western Greyhound from Boscastle to Bude, which is about 30 minutes away. The journey is mainly through fields with the last portion along the Bude coastline which is as spectacular as most of the coast here in North

And it’s a decade of blogging!

Yesterday marked the 10th anniversary of this blog. What started as an experiment to check out a new blogging tool called WordPress back in 2003 has become an integral part of my life. I completed my engineering and worked as an engineer in one of the leading engineering companies from India. I then went out

Cornwall – Wadebridge and the Camel Trail

Having spent a good portion of the week in Boscastle and the surrounding areas, Ashwina and I set out to visit the famous Camel Trail. Straight from Wikipedia: The Camel Trail is a disused and resurfaced railway line in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom, that provides a recreational route for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. We
