Tata Hexa – your perfect travel buddy

One fine day while going through my emails, I saw this message from Indiblogger inviting bloggers from five metro cities to Hyderabad for the launch of the all new Tata Hexa. I must admit that I registered for it to gauge my standing and was elated to get selected among the top 60 influencers in the country. This was my first Indiblogger event and least knew what to expect but the entire activity went out smoothly. The day we landed in Hyderabad,

Most of them were like a second or third home to me, but Abu Dhabi still remained an alien land, as Dubai remains the frequented country for most of my work. I preferred Etihad Airways over Emirates due to the convenience it offered (direct flight), cost economy and past experience of travelling with it while travelling

This was just the chocolate topping on the multi-tiered cake that was to be my first ever trip abroad. I was all set to visit my uncle who works in Adidas at the headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Germany, and he had planned for us to see the Eiffel Tower as well. Planning for my first foreign
