So when you are invited to a Microsoft event named
appetizing apptasting hosted by drool-worthy gadget guru Rajiv Makhni and Michelin starred chef Vikas Khanna, it’s
difficult to say NO. Ofcourse, the opportunity to wine and dine with
like-minded women from the WOW aka Women on Wanderlust club, made this evening just
The #LumiaApptasting evening showcased some of the finest collection of mobile apps available on Lumia devices. Specially designed for women travellers, there’s an array of apps focusing on self-defense, awesome imaging and even a face swap to break the ice with co-travellers.
I particularly liked a Microsoft device that can track belongings and a feature that lets you scan your location, anywhere in the world and talks about the local events happening within the radius of few kilometers. That sounded very cool, considering impulsive travellers like me love to explore on foot. Another smart app allows you to quickly translate the language in any part of the world as you converse with the locals there.

As the glamorous evening unfolded, over a hundred women dressed in ‘pretty pink’ enjoyed endless goblets of Sauvignon Blanc and scrumptious entrées. But the real attractions of the event were its dishy hosts Rajiv and Vikas who had women in splits with their wisecracks, visual puns and double entendre jokes. Ofcourse, after meeting so many wonderful women of the WOW club, I am so kicked about going on an all-women adventure trip. That will happen soon.
