Call it a Cyberabad or City of Pearls, it's a known fact that Hyderabad is culturally a rich city. The city has its way of telling you tales about its heritage and ancient culture with its own idiosyncratic twist. Hyderabad, the city is embellished with royal architectural installations that proudly showcases the Nawabi atmosphere. Traditional yet urbane that's what best describes Hyderabad. My trip to Hyderabad will be special because this was my first solo trip. I always wanted to see the places as a traveller and not as a tourist and this was the best chance. Me travelling alone freaks my parents. I planned my dates in a smart way. I opted for the dates when my parents had scheduled pilgrimage for 5 days. So instead of being a couch potato, alone at home, I thought to spend my weekend at Hyderabad.

FRIDAY SATURDAY & SUNDAY - IN THE CITY OF NIZAMS The plan was set. Thanks to my friend Sujith, my partner in crime who stays in Hyderabad. He helped me with the stay at the girls' hostel that was easy on my pockets. Sujith promised to show me around the city 1. Flight Tickets - Check (Indigo Airlines: MUM- HYD- 7th March - 5:20am) 2. Train Tickets - Check (Begumpeth Express: HYD - MUM - 9th March - 3:30pm)

I have just known Karachi bakery for those lovely biscuits available everywhere. This month for the first time I visited the outlet in Madhapur. The rainbow cakes, the log cakes ...OMG...There were almost N number of varieties which we fail to see at the regular cake shops too. If you are planning to take a cake for your friends or relatives as a gift do prefer taking it from there.
