My 10 best moments of 2011

Yet another year is coming to an end. Time flies very fast nowadays. Although with all the ups and downs faced around the year, 2011 is still a remarkable year for me, wholly. The number of countries I traveled to may be less than the previous year but it still offers me many new and great experiences. I’ve compiled a list of my 10 best moments in 2011. Doing the once in a lifetime skydiving in Queenstown did tops my list in 2010. Here are my 10 best moments of 2011.

 

10. Entering Dhobi Ghatt, the world’s largest laundry area in central Mumbai and watched how more than 10,000 workers did most of the laundry works manually.
