A Recap of My Summer Vacation: 3

Washington DC In A Nutshell – Part 2

Let’s get going with some historical facts. Washington DC has tons of free museums. One need not bother with those that charge admission fees except if duly needed. It is pertinent to mention that The Smithsonian has 19 museums and there is every likelihood that one will never see all of them if on a short trip where only a few days will be spent. However, ideally, it is a good idea to prioritize the most popular places. Some of the best, for both adults and children which I’d recommend, is the Air and Space Museum for those with technical inclinations. The Natural History Museum; American History Museum, and the Archives. These are popular attractions for a reason which you should find out. Continue reading

A Recap of My Summer Vacation: 2

Washington DC in a Nutshell:

Travelling it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller. – Ibn Battuta

 
Whenever I visit new cities, one thing I do is to try and find a few unique things to do in the evenings. I start by asking Mr Google for directions and for some iconic places of interest to visit. I always like to know the tourist attractions of any destination I travel to even before my arrival in such a place. Besides fun activities and an adventure on local foodies of the land, I like doing a bit of ‘nerding’ out in Museums to check out antiques and artefacts. These things fascinate me and I love to have good collages of photographs as souvenirs for the future. It’s hard to share the dozens of photos I’ve so far gathered on this platform. It will definitely take up the whole space in my blog as well.  Continue reading

My Morning Thoughts…!

A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside. – Denis Waitley

And a smile is free! Give it without holding back. It will brighten up a lonely heart or a heart that feels unloved. It will be a source of strength to someone who feels weak. It will surely brighten up a sad face.

A smile is contagious and will ignite a smile on the other person. Continue reading

The Daily Prompt – Explore!

I always remind myself that there is no better education than travelling. My reason is not far-fetched. It’s borne out of the experiences I’ve garnered from my vast travels.

Travelling gives you a world of boundless possibilities and almost zero limitations. Consider the world as a book and each country as a page. And consider yourself confined only in the comfort of your town or city where you are born and you never travelled out to see other cultures and societies. It means that you end up reading only one page of that book if you fail to explore the world. Continue reading
