My rendezvous with Chicago happened in the year 2016. We had a meager budget, three-days to visit Chicago, hunt for apartments, sign a rental agreement and be back to Cincinnati! It didn’t matter how strained we were for time or money because the excitement of moving to a new city in my own apartment superseded anything. Continue reading
Someone once told me that Gatlinburg looks like a carnival.

Somewhere in my subconscious mind, I had decided that I have to travel somewhere in India when I visit home. In November last year, I finally took the flight to home and met my family after one whole year.
