Roma Priya, founder of Burgeon Law, is a travel lover. The law firm boss visited Greece and Italy last year. Both places helped her sample some delicious food and see some interesting sights.
Sharing interesting anecdotes from the trips, she told ET Panache, “I visited Plaka in Athens, Greece, which is a very beautiful place with countless restaurants to eat at, placed right at the foot of Acropolis of Athens. I also went to Santorini which has these famous restaurants that served whole fish which is basically a massive fish drenched in Greek flavours.”
With the Greeks eating about five meals a day, it was nearly impossible to do for Priya. “I got a chance to try their local delicacies like grilled meats, olives infused with olive oil, the lip-smacking fresh feta cheese and honey and baklava to say the least. I visited Metaxi Mas where I got the chance to try the authentic Greek flavours,” she said.
The most difficult thing about eating in Italy for the Burgeon Law founder was not being able to try everything. “I happened to like the regional delicacies like lasagne, pasta, pizzas, polenta, risotto, truffles etc. I am an avid coffee drinker and I absolutely loved trying the authentic Italian roast coffee which was highly fragrant and flavourful to have. I also devoured various flavours of gelato as no trip to Italy is complete without the gelato,” she added.
Travel has been a teacher for Roma Priya. Sharing what she has gained from travel, she said, “Travel is the ideal place to test yourself. It pushes me to my limits and gets me outside my comfort zone. A person can only discover how resourceful they are when they’re exposed to new places, people and experiences.”

The Passport Shuffle
22 Aug, 2019
The new Henley Passport Index is out, and there has been a major shuffle in the global ranking of the world’s passports.
In the beginning of 2019, 27 countries were in the top 10 positions on the index, but this month 4 more countries were added to the list.
Several countries climbed the list to have most powerful passports, while few slipped from their positions, including India.
The ranking is determined on the number of destinations their holders can access without a prior visa. It is based on the exclusive data from the International Air Transport Association, which maintains the world’s largest and most accurate database of travel information.
Here’s a look at all the top ranking passports of this year.
