Worldwide HoliDaze

Thanks to the increased convenience of air travel and the emergence of a common universal language to help navigate foreign terminals, extensive worldwide travel has become not only possible but more and more popular. Suddenly a trend that is as old as civilization itself has become more accessible to the masses instead of being solely a privilege of the most elite.

Even If You Cannot Travel The World You Can Still Explore Your Hometown!

As you may have noticed, the HoliDaze is in the middle of an real-time overhaul. Please forgive me if any of the pages look a little bit funny or a few links are temporarily unavailable...I am working as fast as I can but might not have it all finished for another 24 hours or so.

This is also why I have not been active on Twitter and have recently fallen behind on my emails as well. It is because I already have enough distractions in my real life that now I need to avoid any new online distractions, at least until the new layout is finished.

    Passion Fruit Paradise Be careful if saying that exotic things are the prerogative of remote from Europe lands, somewhere in Asia or in Latin America. The Portuguese can be truly offended and, in particular, will be right to remind you of Madeira, nicknamed by many "The Passion Fruits Island." The idea itself reflects this fruit is widely grown and used over the area, and if surfing over the internet pages or talking to locals, it is very likely…

    Dog Friendlyness in a Cumbria Hotel Now travelling with dogs brings a whole different perspective to finding the right hotel and most importantly, the right hotel location. 3 years ago we ventured into the world of dog ownership. Mac the Border Collie, this little pup who little did we know at the time, would completely change the main criteria of a hotel search! To add to it, we got Cam, and so are now a 2 dog family. Mac and Cam…
  • Art in Auroville
    Written by
    In a Utopian township of Auroville where freedom is of prime importance, art and innovation find their way in through the window. When the love for humanity and the passion towards work is chosen over the materialistic pleasures and the preconceived idea of a livelihood, the mind tends to sail beyond the boundaries of conventions and break the patterns.  Auroville can be easily termed as the artist's paradise with the schools teaching various forms of…
