Alaska trip 5 – Fairbanks

We spent our last day in Alaska at Fairbanks. We were supposed to catch the flight at 1 AM or so from Fairbanks. So we decided to explore places in and around Fairbanks.

Alaska trip 3 – Denali

Day 3. We got up early and headed towards Denali National Park. It was a long drive of about 4 hours. Unfortunately, it started raining and it kept raining as we drove towards Denali.

Flowers near the beach

Captured some flowers when we recently went to Foster City Beach. It is supposedly famous for shells. The beach is full of shells and you won't find sand there. Not... Continue Reading →

Experience is the best teacher

I was thinking back about the first time that I landed in US. That has to be the scariest day in my life, hands down. That day I felt most lonely and vulnerable in my life. I decided to do my masters in US and after everything was done, including flight tickets, I was scared.... Continue Reading →
