A wise man once said – “Get busy living or get busy dying“. Well! some of you would say #MyChoice. Personally I believe in getting busy to live each moment of life like it was the first. ‘Living’ in true sense for me comprise of three things – Thoughtful actions, Travelling and Eating. Common now I am not doing anything extraordinary and this would be the life’s summary of many of you as well, isn’t it? So are we a ‘different’ bunch of youngsters or are we a part of the continuously unfolding future? In my opinion, we are a part of the future or rather the future makers (if I may say so)!
So while most of the young professional like me resort to frequent outstation holidays we are always short of time for planning the trip and stuff. Surely smartphone can be a life saver in this, want to know how? Then, read on..

Now this is one sort of mobile applications that I wouldn’t afford to miss. While travelling my dressing up mantra is simple – Dress as the natives Dress. This way I would not look like an alien and also it would be a kind of respect shown towards the culture of the place I am visiting. Just imagine I am travelling in Thailand wearing a saree or I am travelling to Amritsar and wearing a pair of shorts with a cropped T-shirt! “Faux Pas”, you would say. So just before going for or during a holiday I usually do some shopping for myself after all holidays are meant to relax and look beautiful.
