At a height of 2,590 m, this lovely hill station is less popular than its neighbouring cousins, Mussoorie and Hrishikesh which makes it a perfect getaway.

  • Eating Langoustines in Humarhöfnin, Höfn

    As fish lovers, a trip to Iceland would have felt incomplete without trying the country’s famous seafood. And it’s safe to say that Iceland spoiled us. Every place we went to served absolutely fresh-off-the-dock seafood. The dishes themselves were lightly seasoned and cooked to perfection. One of the most memorable restaurants we visited was Humarhöfnin; a seafood joint […]
