New Jersey – Part 2

It’s been 2.5 years since I moved to New Jersey. After a customary post in 2018 commemorating my Year 1, I did get a chance to explore more places in the state but little chance to document it. So, here comes Part 2 with the help of Google Photos […]

Hawai’i

Hawaii – The second archipelago I was visiting in the US after the Thousand Islands. Located outside the continent in the central Pacific Ocean, Hawaii is the most recent, meaning the 50th state of the United States. The volcanic Hawaii archipelago consists of eight main islands, of which […]

Yellowstone National Park

After having explored mostly the concrete jungles of the United States, I wanted to explore the nation’s most treasured landscapes and could not think of anything better than Yellowstone National Park, America’s first National Park. Spread across the states of Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho, with the majority chunk […]

Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City was introduced to me by a colleague who had great things to talk about the architecture of Mormon Church. I happened to visit the city on my way to the Yellowstone National Park. Salt Lake City is considered the gateway to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons […]

Boston

From the time I set foot in the country, I wanted to visit Boston – one of the oldest cities of the U.S. for all the great things I had heard about it. V and I decided to go on a road trip to Boston for my birthday […]

Eternal Flame Falls

Our quest for unexplored places never stops. V came across Eternal Flame Falls from a random Vblog, and we decided to explore this hidden gem in upstate New York. A 6-hour drive through scenic landscapes of Pennsylvania and New York we reached our destination Orchard Park in Erie […]

New Jersey

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! Accustoming to the new environment took me more time than I […]

Dallas

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 […]

New Hampshire

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 […]

Washington, D.C.

Recently, I made a quick trip to Virginia to visit a dear friend. A 4.5-hour bus ride from Port Authority NYC took me to Union Station, DC. You may as well drive or ride Amtrack or fly into DC, depending on your proximity. Union Station is a transportation […]

New York City – Part 3

I just love reading books and always enjoyed going to libraries in my hometown. After moving to the US, I enquired a coworker about libraries in our county. Seeing the interest, she suggested I should visit the library in New York whenever I get a chance. I did […]

Philadelphia

Philly was a surprise. I liked it right from the moment I set my foot. On arriving at 30th Street late in the evening, walking past the Amtrak building and the grand SEPTA station, Market Street and Rittenhouse Square to Waverly Street where my friend lives, I came […]
