Pictures Take You Places: London, Children and Pigeons

Photography is often about moments which make unique photos that can't be replicated, not with the same person in them, not with the same light, or the same mood.

The following are three shots from my latest trip to London when, a couple of children, fascinated by a group of pigeons sheltering behind the National Gallery, spent a lively 15 minutes…

Travel Marvel of South India: Vellore

Vellore Fort is very popular in South India, as it is very rare to find forts and palaces in South India. Vellore Fort is one of the largest forts among those very few forts of South India.

Your December Travel Horoscope: The Astrology Trip Planner

Just as astrology can identify, say, business and romantic opportunities or challenges, those celestial bodies slinking about the stars can help pinpoint optimal times and places for travel. And since destinations have their own astro-charts, which interact with yours, astrology can even serve as a kind of spiritual travel agent.

Curry Snapper From St. Barts' Tony Hotel Toiny

by Tripatini staff



So is St. Barthélemy in fact the coolest island in the Caribbean? Hard to say, but it sure does attract a lot of models, movie stars, and music types (hey, isn’t that dude in the Ray-Bans whatsisname?). Many of them stay at the Hotel Le Toiny, an all-suite/villa hideaway with 15 pastel bungalows equipped with major-league “Do Not Disturb” signs. But even if a star isn’t staying at this luxurious Relais & Chateaux property, you can be… Continue
