Gibraltar Vacation Travel Guide


Although it covers less than 3 square miles, Gibraltar’s strategic location has made it one of the most fought over places in Europe. For centuries, it has withstood political manoeuvring, sieges and battles and today, with its red call boxes, Union Jacks and high street shops, Gibraltar staunchly stands as a small pocket of England in the heart of the Mediterranean.

ACTUAL Indian Cold Weather



Herein, I share some cold weather patterns I'd been studying since the last three years at Vatsalya Udayan (www.vatsalya.org) (www.fb.me/vatsalyachildrenvillage). (You may click these links to find out more about this wonderful organization) We've recorded down to -8 degrees here and a lot of frost and ice, when the same day it rises to 25 degrees celsius. Meanwhile in Jaipur, only 30 kms away, it rarely dips below 8-9 degrees. This difference is in fact not only due to the geographical features of Vatsalya Udayan, but also hugely impacted by the high level of pollution in the major cities of India, which disturb the normal weather patterns. It's another example of urban heat island effect, much more amplified. So: Let us please try to protect nature's balance. Use only as per your need, not your greed and think about where that energy which powers your home comes from :)



K2 with a Drone!

I am very grateful to Czech climber Klára Kolouchová, who invited me to join her at U.S. International expedition to the second highest peak of the World, mystic K2 at Karakoram, Pakistan! This is a short movie about flying a drone at high altitude at Camp I (6334 m a.s.l.).
