My Favorite Things: April 2018

I’ve been seeing so many memes about how busy college students get when May comes around, and it’s so true! Ever since this month started, all of my deadlines have been piling up and I’m just trying to finish this semester which is why I literally had no blog posts this month 😦 Well, now…

My Favorite Things: January 2018

Hey guys! I’m so glad to finally be able to make a blog post! I know it’s been ages, but I did take a little trip to Pakistan which I will be making a post about soon 🙂 . Also, right when I came back, my uni started so I was really busy! I just…

Dia Dhuit Ireland! Taking off to Dublin for a day

Hey guys! I can’t believe it… it took me forever, but this is officially the last post about my trip to Europe! Dublin was the last place we visited before going back to America. When we came back to Manchester, after spending two weeks exploring Europe, we still wanted to travel some more. Our cousins suggested…

Hello Scotland! One Day in Edinburgh

Hey guys! I’m back again with my travel posts 🙂 Today I wanted to talk about the day I spent in Edinburgh. Technically, Scotland is part of the United Kingdom, but we Americans somehow still think it’s a separate country 😀 Since we landed in Manchester, everyone told us we should take the short drive up…

Ahoj Praha! How I Spent Two Days in Prague

Back at it again with my European vacation 😀 . I think I mentioned this before, but Prague was my favorite city to visit during my vacation. The city looked like it was straight out of a fairytale! Prague was the only city I saw that actually made me feel like I was in Europe, it fit…

Bonjour Paris! One day in the City of Love

Paris! The city of dreams and romance… I have seen countless movies and read countless books about Paris, it truly is a dream! I couldn’t even believe that I got a chance to visit such an incredible place! Here’s the story of how I got to Paris and what I did with one day in…

Bahawalpur Diaries: The Wonders of Noor Mahal

After a day or two in Multan, we decided to go visit Bahawalpur, a city only one or two hours away from Multan. It’s a very small, clean city and it has a lot of famous places to visit. We only had one afternoon, and since it was too hot to go to the desert…

Multan Diaries: Exploring the City of Saints

Multan is a bustling city, and we spent four days here meeting with family and exploring the area. NEVER come here during the middle of the summer (our mistake). Multan is very close to the desert and it’s BOILING hot in the mornings/afternoons. At night it gets very cool and that’s why most of our…

Islamabad Diaries: Driving up to Nathiagali

After a day in Islamabad, we decided to go up the mountains to Nathiagali! This was a nice experience, the roads were safer than I thought they would be and the views were really beautiful. Nathiagali is a mountain resort in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. Nathiagali is known for its scenic beauty, hiking tracks and pleasant…

Islamabad Diaries: Finally here! Shah Faisal Masjid and Saidpur Village

We finally arrived in Islamabad after the four-hour drive from Lahore (it took us longer because we stopped at Khewra Salt Mines and Katasraj Temple) Entering in Islamabad was amazing. The city reminded me of America, with the clean roads, and forest feel. It was nice to see people finally following the traffic laws, and there were barely…

Islamabad Diaries:Living the Dream at Katasraj Temple

Again, although this place was not in Islamabad, I’m including it in my Islamabad Diaries because we visited while we were en route to Islamabad. Katasraj temple is a Hindu temple complex situated in Katas village near Chakwal. Dedicated to Shiva, the temple has, according to Hindu legend, existed for the past 1500 years. The lake…
