In my recent business trip to Singapore I didn't order turtle egg soup in dinner as I avoided tuna fish sandwich while in SFO.
In my last holiday to Rajasthan during my stay at hotels, I took short showers,reused my towel/bed-linen and even unplugged my mobile charger in the night.
I finished my meeting early in Delhi,took a Airport metro instead of a cab,en-route did my web-check in,my last minute shopping - a cookie box and chocolates, well managed in handbag and avoided the paper bag.
I enjoyed my last Dubai trip where I preferred to book a Big Bus Tour and got a free entry ticket to Dubai Museum and the interesting Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum House.
I love reading and books are my best friend but while travelling this time I left all my friends behind and carried Kindle.My handbag was lighter than ever before.
On my last day in Delhi I bought a Chanderi Saree for my mother from Hand-loom House, got a chance to take a selfie with the weaver and shared the picture with him.
