Season of Colour Blocking

8 Nov

With bright colours and sober colours, monotones and neutrals, pastels to vintage brights, colour blocking has no rules. Colour blocking can be done whichever way you’d prefer. The trend of  colour blocking in India is so ubiquitous through our ethnic wear, that it doesn’t seem nouveau. We love to experiment with colours, we love the play of colours and yes, Oh Boy!! We are quite colourful. But I see so little colour blocking for men… Absolutely… So little.. So here’s some treat for the eye.

Gruyère, Swiss – Eurotrip

9 May

Gruyère, a small medieval picturesque town at the foots of Pre-Alps, known for its famous ‘Gruyère Cheese‘. I arrived at Gruyère after an hour-long journey, a slow train ride along the mountain side with an astounding view of the farms, cliffs, snow and coniferous trees. I have no words to describe the beauty of Switzerland.  Every image gets registered in your mind through the lens of your eye. Your camera cannot do justice to this marvellous natural beauty.

Gruyère Cheese Factory – La Maison Du Gruyère

La Maison du Gruyère, situated right behind Gruyère station is one of the culinary landmark of Switzerland. The ‘Gruyère Cheese’ has its own unique ‘geographical indication‘ and La Maison du Gruyère demonstrates the great ‘cheese-making‘ history of this place.

I guess that’s enough Cheese for today!!! Moving on, I took a walk along this beautiful countryside making my way to the 13th century medieval castle situated on the hill-side. The ‘Gruyère Castle’ hosts great restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops and a museum.
