Ac­tor Manasi Joshi Roy (left) just got back from Barcelona, where she was hol­i­day­ing with hus­band, Ro­hit Roy. Com­ing back from a good break, Manasi rem­i­nisces, “We landed in Barcelona a day be­fore Ro­hit’s birth­day (April 5) and be­gan the cel­e­bra­tions with a nice stroll down Los Ram­blas and the Gothic Quar­ter. On his birth­day, we had a nice cham­pagne break­fast from the ho­tel that over­looked the beau­ti­ful city of Barcelona.”

The self-con­fessed travel junkie, who re­mem­bers her child­hood fas­ci­na­tion to travel the world, says, “As a kid, while read­ing Enid Bly­ton sto­ries, I used to travel to the English coun­try­side in my dreams. Af­ter grow­ing up, ev­ery novel that I read, which is placed in a for­eign lo­cale, in­spires me to travel.” Manasi, who re­cently made a come­back to tele­vi­sion af­ter 12 years, is happy to have cho­sen a pro­fes­sion that re­quires her to travel.“From New York to Kan­pur, I’m happy that my work lets me see new places, ex­plore new cul­tures, new cuisines and a new way of life. I be­lieve, travel opens your hori­zons like no other ac­tiv­ity can.”
