It’s no secret that Taapsee Pannu, the powerhouse of talent, likes to relax guilt-free in her spare time even as she continues to enthral fans with her outstanding performances on the big screen and on OTT. Taapsee adores to travel and explore new things to make unforgettable memories.
The actor lauded for her breakthrough performance in ‘Pink’, the highly appreciated ‘Thappad’ and ‘Haseen Dillruba’, recently travelled to California and chose to stay at some stunning Airbnb homes in San Francisco and San Diego.
Sharing what she loved about these vibrant Californian hotspots, Taapsee said, “My trip has been an absolute delight, a tapestry of unforgettable experiences and cherished memories. From the mesmerising vistas of San Francisco’s iconic coastline to immersing myself in the city’s rich tapestry of art, food, culture, and history, every moment has been worth the journey. The allure of San Diego’s sun-kissed parks and picturesque harbours, accompanied by the blissful weather, created the perfect setting for indulgence-something I don’t get to do very often in Mumbai. When I travel, I look forward to exploring the destination like a local. Meeting new people, venturing off the beaten path, and discovering hidden gems are the hallmarks of an authentic travel experience. Staying at an Airbnb exemplifies the best of both worlds, offering me a cozy sanctuary that feels like my own home in a foreign land.”
