These are the days of delight as well as dread. New country, new home, new paths and new ways of life are creating a layer of intrigue inside, yet craving for the shores of Lake Geneva in Lausanne, Switzerland. While my mind was busy in a continuous process of attachment and detachment, I went to say hello to the pacific in Santa Cruz, California.

After spending an exciting night in Hualapai Ranch in Grand Canyon, we started for Las Vegas the next day afternoon. We reached Las Vegas by evening. After relaxing for a couple of hours in our hotel (Excalibur), we were ready to explore the charming and glittering night in Vegas.
Few more hours and 2014 will bid adieu to 2013. Time for new resolutions and new dreams. I believe one of the finest blessings of our existence is the ability to read and gain knowledge. To me books are my most precious companion, powerful solace and my true delight. I always exchange my vacant, intellectual and blank solitudes with books and only books (though nowadays with my kindle – thanks to the technology)!! Today I decided to take my readers to a paradise where the most precious treasure is knowledge. Come and explore with me the main library of Princeton University (also called the Firestone Library) – an abode of books.
Few days are left for Christmas. I wanted to present to my readers a tale of a place which is full of life and in perfect harmony with the mood of celebrations in this festive season. I decided to write about the Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, USA. Lovely smells of seafood all over the street, people from different parts of the world, different shops for various souvenirs, cute Sea Lions, large ships, wonderful white birds, cable cars (manually operated) and of course the seaside generates energetic vibes in abundance, making the Fisherman’s Wharf a happening and enchanting place to relax, to mix with the crowd and to enjoy.
One of the open secrets of nature’s pace is patience. I realized this when I saw the Grand Canyon.
It was a new dawn–a new beginning–a new experience–a new realization–and now a young memory. The silent dawn became a solemn teacher, which inspired me to aspire even in the caliginous hours, when I saw the rising star was breaking apart all the darkness slowly but steadily and making its way to shine bright.
Recently I visited the Grand Canyon (West Rim) and spent a night at the Hualapai Ranch. Trapping the astonishing Grand Canyon in words is indeed a challenge and that’s why I decided to write about this exciting trip of mine in parts. I will start with the tale of a romantic starry night amidst the vast barren landscape of Hualapai Ranch, which was akin to a desert.
