Camera Lens Wishlist – Part 2

I had written an earlier post about all the lens that I had rented and wanted to rent/buy for my Canon DSLR. Now that I own a full frame camera, I have been yearning to collect all the good lens available in market. From my previous list, I already tried Fisheye Lens and it was…

Gold rush in America books

Living in California, I have visited some ghost towns and have heard a lot about the gold rush in California and in US a lot of times. When I want to learn more about something, I usually pick a book on that topic and read. I have been in search of books that are based…

UK: Enid Blyton and Harry Potter

I love to travel as you all know already. I love armchair travel more than actually travelling to places. Reading books about places is even better than actually visiting those places – because it is cheaper, more convenient and you can get more information than you can even at that location.

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…
