Books you might find in my backpack
Music you might find me listening to while waiting for my plane
Most Memorable Travel Experience
Being on the Massai-Mara-in Kenya and watching a Lion couple mating at a very short distance- and evenings at the Golden Temple-Amritsar-India-perhaps the most serene place on this Planet.
My Motto always has been:Be a traveller, not just a tourist/appreciate the culture , not just the sights.
I wasa a member of Virtual Tourist for so many years and sadly it has now shut but great to reconnect with friends
Now I have finally retired from my proffession as a chef and after 30 plus years in Sydney Australia I have returnend to spend my retired life along with my wife Geetha in Bangalore,India.
