Udaipur, India

DSC_9182 (2)

This post was due since I returned back from my trip to India. We ended up taking so many pictures, that sorting them out was a big task in itself. Finally, I am done sorting out the best to share with you all. We try to visit our family at least every two years. Most of our family members live in India- my family as well my husband’s family. There are never enough days to visit all of them in one trip , but we try to make most of it. And, we also have to make sure that we get to go out and eat all the foods that we grew up eating. My husband and I make a big list of places that we want to eat and things we wanna do while on the flight to India; mind you it takes almost 24 hours journey to travel to Asia. We go through two breakfasts, two dinners, one lunch and many snacks by the time we land in India. I am not trying to scare you if you ever plan to visit India or any other countries in Asia. But, that’s how long it takes.

This year’s visit was special. As I was going to see my niece for the first time who was almost turning one in few days . Yes, I was planning to go on this trip since so many months. My sister had her after 11 years of their marriage. She is such a blessing to our family. We also had my husband’s cousin getting married and it had been long since we had attended an Indian wedding. So, we were more than excited for the trip.During the trip, at times we got so busy that I do not have pictures to share of everything that we did. But, I do have many pictures from our trip to Udaipur. In two weeks we traveled to so many places and one of them was to Udaipur city as it was closest and some of my family members had not been there. We wanted some family time together.  Continue reading “Udaipur, India”

Nassau – Island of Bahamas

DSC_9701Yay! I celebrated my birthday in the Bahamas. Last month I turned a year old. Or you can say a year wiser. I think we just needed a reason to get out of cold weather, even though I have to agree this winter was much better than the previous years. So, we decided to go to the Bahamas and what a wonderful mini vacation it was. It was really good idea to avoid the cold weather and also we got to avoid the crowds by going off season. But, let me tell you there were others just like us who were taking the benefit of it.  Continue reading “Nassau – Island of Bahamas”
