We also met Brandon @officialbrandonblue at the top of the minaret at Jama Masjid in Old Delhi. All the way from Atlanta. Brandon is an artist. He is also a photographer. Musician. And model (well obviously, have you looked at him?!😍) His insta has some lovely photographs of India from the time he was traveling. Delhi/Varanasi/Agra. He's back in Atlanta now and I enjoy looking at his insta stories ✌️ #EyesForPeople#Portraiture
Other than the obvious beauty of Venice, the canals and the narrow alleys, there's something else that got a lot of our attention: door knobs and knockers, like this one. They add so much magic and mystery to the doors they're on. Look at the artistry, doesn't it add a ton of depth to even an old door with worn off paint!🚪💕
This summer heat combined with Monday blues only make me wish to go back to this place and chill in the waters😒😒

Waterfalls like this one might be common all along in Himachal, yet you can't help but love each and every one of them. Although this looks like a small one, it's still huge; look at how tiny the transmission tower looks in comparison. Now you get it! ☺
I have always felt intimidated by kids. I mean kids are nice but I couldn't really ever bring myself to cuddle them or coochie coo them like the rest of the people.
I have friends who go crazy when they see kids and can't keep their hands off them, pulling their cheeks and doing all sorts of baby talk. I, on the other hand, have always found a Hello an easy greeting (escape if I may say). And yes, a Hello because well, "etiquettes" and to avoid judgement from those who won't shy away from calling me heartless. Also, those who are nice to kids are socially acceptable so you don't really have the option of not liking them.
So while I work from home for an entirely different industry, I decided to join a school as well to keep myself busier. A school with kids! Kids!!! A place where I am required to be nice to them. Even though my job is more of administration work (I dread teaching), I am required to interact with them every single day.
So while I sit in my office, I have little ones peeking into the room, waving at me, offering me food during break and there I sit wondering whether they sense my awkwardness or not. Also, I like the ones who offer me food better than the others. And no, I don't eat their food but politely refuse. I am not that mean.
You know, it has just been a month and I am still warming up to the idea that they aren't that bad. There are a few adorable moments too. Let's see where this goes. 🌷
If you guys have been following my Insta/Snap stories, you might already know that I was in lucknow from past three days. Now that I am back, I'll soon be uploading pictures from my trip and might also publish a travel post for the same. So, Watch out! ;)
It's been almost twelve years and I have not worked on a look for the blog and integrated it with all my social media. So I took the help of some young talented people who work with me on my YouTube channel Travel With Lakshmi to come up with a new logo. I integrated it with my blog and decided to get a new look and design for it as well. While work is still in progress, slide the pictures and see if you like what you see. The link to my blog is there on my profile. Thanks so much. Have a lovely Sunday
Met the lovely Ashley Renne aka @travellushes at the top of the minaret inside Jama Masjid, Old Delhi. You should check out her YouTube channel for travel videos and vlogs. Some really beautiful work there ✌️ Makes me look at India differently. (More photos from inside the mosque on my blog.) #EyesForDestinations#EyesForIndia
