Sparkle #143: A Not So Scary Halloween Party

Love Halloween but don’t like to celebrate it the scary or spooky way? Then head over to Disney for Mickey’s ‘not-so-scary’ Halloween Party! Every year, the famous theme park in Florida, Orlando holds a Halloween festival during the months of September and October which includes special events, themed decor, fireworks, parades and plenty of fun opportunities to trick or treat! Anything associated with Disney can hardly be scary, and this event is no different. Since the theme park caters to family audiences, the Halloween events are more focused on fun and games and less inclined towards scary activities.

Sparkle #139: Minimalist Travel Tattoos

I don’t think I will ever get a tattoo – it seems too permanent! What if I don’t like what I got a couple of years down the line? I also have super sensitive skin with a low pain threshold, so the idea of getting a tattoo is not too appealing. But whenever I come across an interesting tattoo on someone else, I do get swayed by the idea for a bit. Like when I saw these charming minimalist travel tattoos below, I wanted to get one for myself too! I particularly like #8 and #10, which one do you like best? (Image Credits: Image 1,…

Sparkle #135: Amazing Waffles at Virginia Beach

I have mentioned a couple of times how much I love fall and winter. I am also equally fond of spring! However, I don’t like the hot season much. But the one thing I do love about summer is the beach. If you have been reading my blog for a while you will know that I had a fabulous beach vacation at Virginia Beach in May this year. It was the perfect weekend getaway with my wonderful sister, brother in law and amazing niece. My super smart niece has her own blog and she even wrote a post about our trip here! I know I have promised you…

Sparkle #127: Travel Words To Love

Sometimes travel inspiration can strike anywhere, even when reading a word! There are some unique words in English and other languages which beautifully capture the emotions of a wandering soul. If your travel vocabulary starts at adventure and ends at wanderlust, then you might want to refresh it with something more interesting from the options given below! Aren’t these travel words fascinating? My favorite one is ‘drapetomania’, I often feel this irresistible urge to just run away to towns, cities and countries – familiar and unknown. Which one of these do you identify with as a traveler?
