I am a fashion designer by profession and need to travel to different parts of the world for working on some kind of assignments, conducting shows or designing fabrics for special people. Apart from that, I have a keen interest in exploring various corners of the world. This is because nature is what inspires me in the best manner possible. For example, the bright sunlight of the summers enables me to add spark in each design whereas the shady hues seen during the monsoons inspires me to blend green and blue to create something unique.
Amusement parks play a special importance in life as I love to stay involved in roller coaster rides and giant wheels. I have a special knack for photographs and never forget to use my SLR to keep my memories captured. After completing a lot of assignments in the country, I finally got an opportunity to travel to London after a long period with a small team of mine. Since we had a lot of time, we decided to use the spare time to explore the beautiful city of London. It was like a dream come true for me.

We checked out the New Delhi London flights available and decided to board a flight arranged by British Airways. We chose to travel by British Airways as we knew that it was undoubtedly one of the most incredible airline companies in the world. It has a track record of serving successfully for more than 9 decades while being the primary carrier for Britain. It is also the founding member of one of the most sought after airline alliances in the globe namely One World Airline Alliance.

Our flight was scheduled to leave the New Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport at 10.30 in the morning and so we reached there by 9:00 AM. Since it was a long journey, 9 hours and 25 minutes to be precise, we bought some magazines and gadgets to pass our time. I was accompanied by three of my crew members who were very close to me. Another reason for booking British Airway is that it takes the least time amongst all the New Delhi to London flights.
I have already spent 25 years on the planet earth but the travel bug had bitten me rather late. I have visited most of the famous amusement parks in India and now can simply die for roller-coaster rides and giant wheels. I pushed the adventurer streak inside me and went for photographic expeditions to many of the wild life sanctuaries in India and never let the grass grow under my feet! Also I consider myself rather lucky to find the best travel companion in my best friend.
Last year, I discussed with her about next trip and both zeroed upon Switzerland as our next destination. But due to our budget and limited time, we preferred to visit Zurich and its surrounding areas only. We were looking for cheaper airlines and luckily in a travel site we perfectly landed at the page of New Delhi Zurich flights details that were quite cost-effective.

Our journey started off in a sunny morning from Indira Gandhi Airport, New Delhi (DEL). It was a flight of Qatar Airways and both my friend and I were quite floored to receive the friendly hospitability. En route to Zurich, we had to take a halt at Doha International Airport (DOH) and the dazzling souvenir shops there cast a spell on us.

At last when our flight landed at Zurich Airport (ZRH), we were feeling relatively fresh despite the jet-lag, thanks to the comfort provided by Qatar Airways.
Zurich- The Heart-Throb of Europe!
In our one week trip, Zurich left a long-lasting impression on both of us. The city which is voted number one in a ‘quality of life’ survey in 2012- seemed worthy of the tile in every aspect. With its gripping scenic beauty, the stillness of Zurich Lake, the compelling view of Mountain Alps, the sparkling shops and a mix of modern-yet-traditional architecture- Zurich tempted me enough to shift there in future!
On the other hand, professionally I felt I have become more matured after my trip to Zurich. The beauty of the city and its engaging art centres as well as museums- shall definitely help me in future to blossom in my passion for designing fabrics!
