Only last month, Mumbai's plush JW Marriott hotel in Juhu played host to a one-of-a-kind pop-up pleasure.

Thanks to the variety of Italian vegetarian food, almost every other trip ended up in Italy. Yet, a personal question was still haunting me. What about tasting the culture of every city of Europe? What was stopping me?
