I should admit that this part of South India looked clean and green. The air was fresh and I took deep breath to enliven my senses. When we walked outside, we saw a few auto rickshaw drivers approaching us hurriedly. They competed with each other asking for our destination when we stood watching them like a prey ready to be grabbed. After some time, we saw them reach a consensus and one of them guided us to his vehicle to travel us to the hotel.
We reached the Hotel Blue Nile, Kannur, Kerala within four minutes as it was just about one kilometer from the station. Located on SN Park Road, the hotel offered four-star accommodation facility and is regarded as a business and leisure hotel in Kannur. This six-storey building offered easy accessibility to many attractions in the city.
We were welcomed at the entrance and ushered to the reception area, which was well-designed with wooden panels and furnished with matching fabric. There was a giant painting on the wall, which looked like modern art. Marvelously designed and colored pottery, big kuttuvilakku and big and small flower vases adorned the place beautifully.
The hotel offered Deluxe Rooms, Suites and Club Suites to guests. I had booked a deluxe room through the budget hotels app, which offered me a discount. The check-in took only a few minutes and we were helped by a hotel staff to carry our bags to our room.
The double room looked well-furnished with wooden interiors. On the wooden wall there were photographs of paintings and designer lamps, which gave a rich look. The large window was etched with glass and draped with beautiful curtains. The window offered the beautiful view of the street and the greenery.
The twin beds with comfy mattresses added to the intimacy. The Hotel Blue Nile of Kannur offered other facilities such as air conditioning, ironing board, laundry service, 24-hour room service, wakeup service, doctor on call, concierge service, and so on.

Who would have thought in a city like Raipur, one could find the luxurious amenities that one finds in this well advanced generation. When I arrived at Raipur railway station, I was prepared for the worst, thinking it would only be sufficient to suit my budget. But what I witnessed was way over the quality and quantity that I could have imagined.
With a subtle sign for a name board and a very simple looking building from outside, the Hotel Golden Oak Raipur was a stunningly designed lavish looking hotel with top-notch service and assistance at my beck and call. Raipur city looked like it had jumped eons of development in the blink of an eyelid.
The tech savvy world has handed me with simple Hotel booking app, which is quite easy and convenient mode of booking hotels. The suites of the hotel were of excellent taste and the ambience was welcoming and cozy to the occupant too. The services available in the rooms were nothing less than what one would find in a five star hotel at a metro city.
Traveling alone can be boring at times. With all the facilities and amenities inside my hotel accommodation, I was inspired to explore the city more during my stay. Air-conditioning to keep me cool throughout, a minibar filled with refreshments; at a reasonable tariff of course. Cable Television, In house Coffee/Tea making provision, direct dial telephone and high speed Wi-Fi for me to update my blogs.
The restrooms were spotless and so neat that it didn’t seem like I were in a hotel. I felt quite at home and pampered. What with the sofa, refrigerator, daily newspaper and even a writing desk, I felt quite comfortable. The bathroom was replenished with hot and cold water along with multiple toiletries as and when I required them.
Now it was time to sit back and relax the night and replenish my strength for my upcoming days of fun, exploring and education. A power packed meal from their multi cuisine restaurant not only tickled my senses but gave new insight to my taste buds.
Everything in the world is changing, except for the delicious taste of street foods of Mumbai. People from around the world come to the city of dreams for its mouth-watering foods. When the food is so great, it doesn’t matter it is on the road or pavement, what matter is the satisfaction achieved from consuming it. Some famous streets food and popular dishes of Mumbai have become a face of true taste with affordable prices.
I started my foodie journey from Batata vada. It is the most liked and consumed street food in the whole state of Maharashtra and with the exquisite taste, it surely deserves to be the number one. It did look similar to pakoras but it was far more rich and tastier than it. Some say that the vegetarian foods are not that delicious as compared to the non-vegetarian items. If they have just a bit of Batata vada, they will surely think again. After tasting, the superb taste of Batata Vada my hunger for street food was even more than before.
I moved along and had a bit of sev puri. It is surely one of the cheapest and yet tastiest snack in whole Mumbai. People parked their Mercedes and Audi cars in the side lane just to have a bit of the snack. No matter whichever season it is, the taste of sev puri can suit me anytime. Even at the fancy restaurants of five-star hotels, sev puri is a common dish ordered by people.
After the sev puri it was time to try some fast food of Mumbai. The most loved option of the working people and whoever have arrived in Mumbai and struggling with the expenses can find a suitable spot at the pav bhaji vendor. Cheap and yet heavenly tasty option is the healthy and yet fulfilling at the same time. Fried butter and crispy layer of the pav can relieve any tension and make the mind completely relaxed. Street food of Mumbai is the main reason why people forget about their lands and stay in love with this city. After fulfilling my hunger, I started back to my hotel.
Inorbit Mall Mumbai : So many malls, but Inorbit mall in Mumbai will sure catch the attention of someone who’s in love with fashion and colors! Also with the awesome food court makes for the perfect hangout-spot. Weekends can be drag as it gets crowded but the sales and all makes up for it. All brand-loving people you got almost anything and everything here!

Situated in Bandra, the Grand Residency Hotel Mumbai is easily connected to the rest of the city of Mumbai but through numerous transportation options.

This comfort living offered me an ideal place for stay in Mumbai. In addition, with the well-appointed living and dining rooms, flexible configurations like LED TV, Wi-Fi connectivity along with well-stocked mini bar and coffee maker did ensure a complete comfort and peaceful stay.
The top-notch services offered by the Grand Residency Hotel like gymnasium, chauffeured air transport, lobby café and doctor on call was bliss. Apartments promised a homely comfort and a serene atmosphere. I was thrilled by the sight from my room’s window, the clear blue sky with undisturbed view of the sea. The city lights itself was like an untold story.
Bandra, which is also known as the queen of suburbs, is indeed mesmerizing. The hotel also has a café in its lobby were it is easy to relax and enjoy the beverages. The hotel staff members are surely a magnetic feature for Grand Residency. They provide their best expertise to make the stay peaceful.
