Summer 2019-Day 48

One sunny day in London is followed by a dark, wet, cold day-always ((mostly) have learned not to use always as things (Mother Nature) likes to play around). But that doesn’t stop anyone to visit the local attractions. My husband is a cricket fan- after a long hard-working day at work, he spends hours ( one hour) on YouTube watching cricket matches. One thing that … Continue reading Summer 2019-Day 48

Summer 2019-Day 43

Hello London! Not really. We were in a suburb, Walthamstow. There were lot of Indian/Pakistani (desi) restaurants. Good for me-I have been craving some desi food. But first things first, I had to buy some outfits for Eid-Ul-Adha. (Eid-Ul-Adha is a second religious holiday ( celebration) for Muslims around the world. We sacrifice an animal and hope to get good deeds while the animal gets … Continue reading Summer 2019-Day 43

All things aside, our first stop … Continue reading Summer 2019-Day 41

Summer 2019-Day 40

OMG!! 40 th day!! We are so homesick. I know, I might sound ungrateful, but this feeling is there. Kids are feeling it, too. But I know the next day at being home, I will start missing my summer trip. It’s a weird feeling- we wake up, have breakfast, off to explore, have lunch and dinner, and sleep. Now, from someone else’s point of view … Continue reading Summer 2019-Day 40

Summer 2019-Day 39

When I was a little girl, (that feels ancient) I remember learning about Venice. I learned a lot of other things, but sadly not a lot was retained. Venice made a “footprint” on my grey matter and it felt like a distant place in a fairytale land. It’s real! (Spider-Man saved this bridge-Rialto.) Venice , or Venezia, is real. Truly real! Venezia is made of … Continue reading Summer 2019-Day 39
