Until Nov 2016 I did not have the slightest clue that I would be moving to the US. It all happened in a jiffy. Project change, visa amendments, visa stamping, and cut to New Jersey's biting winter!

A long overdue plan to meet a dear friend and her newborn in Texas, and two enthusiastic friends pitching in to come along led to a reunion of us four girls after five years and my first Thanksgiving in the US with friends like family. This trip was more of catching up with my dear girls... Continue Reading →

Unplanned trips are fun. While I was figuring out a place to see the fall foliage, a friend invited me to her home in Connecticut and suggested we travel to the White Mountains in New Hampshire. In less than 12 hours I was at her place, and the following morning we were driving to Franconia... Continue Reading →

In the world of heavily visited tourist attractions, whether for the history, nature, or marvel of human engineering, certain places are worth braving the crowd to see with your own eyes,...

One of the best travel experience is discovering a place of extraordinary beauty that you had never known. Thanks to my friend who planned this trip, my first ever to an archipelago! I had done zero research this time, and all the knowledge I gathered was from the guided boat tour. A 7-hour bus ride... Continue Reading →
