Night at a European Airport Yotel (Hotel)

Living in USA for a long time, everything outside of USA seems small in size :). Big country,big buildings, big hotels, bigger cars, big people, big burgers.. everything big. If you ask an American it is always “Bigger the best”.  In fact for Americans, whatever is in USA is the biggest in the world :).  So far I have seen 3 biggest aquariums in the world in USA.  As a matter of fact each city has something that is biggest in the world.  There can be more than one biggest / largest in the world only in USA. Ok..jokes apart. My intention to talk about America’s biggest was to compare it with some other developed worlds. Specially the one’s in Europe.

We had to travel through Europe(Amsterdam) to our onward journey and for some unavoidable reason we had to make a stop and stay at a hotel in Airport. We could not go outside of airport to stay because of our visa restrictions. We managed to get the only available hotel in the airport . The hotel was called “Yotel”.   (more…)

Traveling to India without PIO

People travelling to India (kids born in USA or Indian US citizens) from USA are not allowed to board the flight through Europe if they do not carry their PIO card with them.

We were recently travelling to India on vacation. Our flight was from Atlanta to Mumbai via Amsterdam. We started from Atlanta on time and reached Amsterdam on schedule. As we were going through the security check to board the flight to India in the Amsterdam airport, the Airline officials asked us to produce all of our passports and our daughter’s ( who is born in USA) PIO card. Damn.. We did not have her PIO card with us. (more…)

Just to begin.

It is always difficult to begin anything and blogging is no exception. This is my first blog and I don’t know what to write. However, I know what I will include in the days to come. I will put my readings and thoughts in this to cover whichever topic I like anything from science, politics , entertainment, religion, faith, culture, technology, history, languages etc etc etc.
Hopefully I will find some who share same thoughts as mine.
