First zoo visit

This weekend we went out for probably the first time after the little one made an entry into the world. We did go to hospitals/doctors and dined out few times but never made a day trip with the little one so far. He loves animals just like all the other kids so we thought why not take…

Travel bug

I love to travel and looks like this travel bug caught me quite early in life. One of the reasons for liking travel is probably the nomadic nature of my early life when we switched cities every few years. It was fun relocating to an entirely new city, going to a new school in a totally…

My travel wishlist – 2

My previous list here consisted of places that I am planning to visit in near future (if I can). But this post will have another list of places that I have been wanting to visit from God-knows-how-long. These countries are far and making a trip to these places would make us spend $$$$, so I…

New cuisines to try list

After my previous post about trying Moroccan food, I realized that it had been very long since I had tried any new cuisine. At some point of time, I was very eager to try out new cuisines, but of late I have not experimented much with food. Being away from India makes me crave only…

Morocco’s restaurant

There was a time when I was very picky about food, but not anymore. I had written a post here earlier about how I am finally able to experiment with food and try out new cuisines. Recently I got to try Morocco’s cuisine which I had never tried before. In fact, I did not even know…

My travel wishlist

I have check-marked almost all the places on my must-see places list in US. I have visited some of them 3-4 times. So these days I have been eyeing other countries or places which are fascinating enough to visit. Most of these places are new additions to my wishlist. To add to that, I have…

Spring flowers

We drove to Blossom trail on a weekend to catch these beauties. There were Almond blossoms, Plum blossoms, Apple blossoms and Citrus blossoms which had white petals. Apricot blossoms, Peach and Nectarine blossoms had pink petals. It was great strolling midst these orchards looking at flowers and bees. I love flowers and love photographing them…

Racetrack road at Death Valley

Every single website that I browsed while we planned for our Death Valley trip, mentioned Artist’s drive. So we at least knew that we must not miss this point. We wanted to catch sunset at this point, if possible. We started driving on this road which you can only enter on the way back from…

Circus Circus

Weekend was really fun. We met two best friends of hubby from college days. I got to know a lot about hubby through their college tales. I realized he was not so different from me even when he was in college. Saturday we went to one of the amusement parks and had fun with rides,…

Death Valley – Part 1

We made a 4 day trip to Death Valley National Park last year. We saw snow capped mountains, snow lying on the ground, salt deposits, sand dunes, Joshua trees, lakes, canyons – such diversity in landscape that we were in awe of its natural beauty. First day, we drove to Death Valley via Sequoia National…
