The Austin Lantern Festival happened to be one of those magical experiences in life where thousands of Austinites gathered together to enjoy the sky lit up with thousands of lanterns, slowly hovering over you and then gliding slowly up towards the sky, creating this miniature galaxy of lights.
An email from Fred triggered my curiosity to attend the hot air balloon festival at Kyle. I had been hearing about hot air balloon festivals from friends in Austin and wanted to have the first-hand experience. Few friends even scared…

Spring stands for regeneration, brightness, fun and festive atmosphere. The trees wear new leaves and blossom with colourful flowers. The grey patches along the green mountains start getting green again. A lot of blues, yellows, orange and red are sprinkled along the greenery across parks, highways and lawns.
The Austiner’s have wholeheartedly embraced this rare and interesting restaurant and appreciate its not so typical Indian dishes which range from Mumbai’s Vada Pav to Malvan’s Tesree Masala and from Zunka Bhakri to Vindaloo
