Sparkle #181: Love and Longing for NYC

My travel wishlist is forever growing. As I add on new destinations every year, I also keep some time to visit places which have endeared to me on my previous travels. As a traveler, you sometimes discover cities and towns which feel familiar, almost like they belong to you and you belong to them. It’s a little like falling in love – each time you set foot in this place, you feel happy, calm and at home. At the same time you feel excited and energized, ready to take on whatever the world throws at you with new vigor and enthusiasm. New York for me,…

Sparkle #155: Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade

Thanksgiving is a great time to take a break and travel back home to be with family and friends. But if you are lucky enough to be in the same city as your family, you can actually use the holiday to plan a vacation and spend some quality time with your loved ones! If you are planning any travel during the Thanksgiving weekend, then consider heading to the Big Apple. New York is fantastic during Thanksgiving owing to two key attractions – the fabulous weekend sales and Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade! Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Parade is an iconic tradition and almost an official way to…

Sparkle #107: Paris vs New York

I love Paris and New York – both cities are my absolute favorites and close to my heart for so many different reasons! I discovered Paris via books and movies and fell in love with it in an instant. Thankfully, my maiden visit this summer only deepened my love for the city! New York on the other hand was my first solo international trip, and the incidents and experiences on this trip helped shape my overall outlook on travel.  New York will always be special for me as it awakened my wanderlust and forever changed my perspective on solo travel! Both the cities have distinct personalities and histories, and a discussion on the…

Week 21, 22 & 23: Around the World in 14 Days!

And I am back! Aloha folks, how has summer started for all of you? I cannot believe I have been away for only two weeks, it seems like forever to me! It is wonderful to be back. I love traveling and might wander off for days or weeks, but I always find my way back home. The beauty of travel is that it not only helps you discover people and places, but also helps unearth new things about your own personality, all the while broadening horizons while enriching the soul! The following two quotes beautifully sum up all my travel experiences till date: “It’s a…
