Diving Deep into Nostalgia (Niagara)!

We have this long weekend in USA for Memorial Day. Of course I have long weekends every alternate weeks. It doesn't make much difference for me. But these are the weekends people actually plan for trips. Summers here and we SHOULD plan. 

Last year this time was really fun for me. This time just that I don't have friends here, but last year was fun with my friends. I went to Niagara and New york. It was a 3day plan and went very smooth. We actually don't know how to go and all. So, we booked our tourism tickets for Niagara. Its a Chinkis travel services. From Groton (the place I was there in Connecticut), we went to NY in bus for 3hours. And the bus to Niagara is next morning at 7. 

As we don't have any place to stay for a night, we planned to stay at our bus stop but they didn't allow us. Yay!! So, we had to stay at Times Square the whole night. Isn't it fun? This is the place I love the most in NY. It is such a lively and crowded place. But still no one bothers you. There is NY Police Department Office right in front of it. So, no un-secure problem too. We can see people drinking, dancing, shouting etc etc.. but still it is safe. I say you to try guys. It IS a fun place!!

We got into our Niagara bus finally after half-sleeping all the night. The bus was little late and we didn't get a luxury one. So, everyone was frustrated but the travels assured us comfort and fun. That is a 7-8hours journey. We meet a LOT of Indians here. The Chinki tries to entertain you and thats fun too. Everything goes in the bus only. Eating, Sleeping, Shitting. Sab kuch chalega ;-). 


We reached there almost in the evening. They took us to 1000 islands first. This is a place near Niagara and beautiful. They will take us in a boat and show the islands. 


From there we went to see the night view of Niagara. It was really scary in the night.



The next day they took us to Niagara. And now I can't tell you my feeling. It was AWESOME. I was scared little when I saw all the water. That was the first time I saw falls. It was amazing!! It is a would-love-to-go place. I would like to visit this place one more time with a whole bunch of friends. You obviously get excited seeing the water and all. 



They take us to the falls in a boat and the tours are called "Maid of the Mist" and "Cave of the winds". These pictures say it all :-).







They leave us at this place to play with water. Whohooo!!!! The girl who is scared of water forgot all about it. She forgot about her camera too and captured all these beautiful shots. Of course camera is still working ;-).



We didn't actually stop here. We went to NY back again to see Statue of Liberty and all other miscellaneous places. If you ever go to ground zero sometime, don't forget to visit the Pakistani's open food stall diagonal to it on left. And do eat "Rice over Chicken" ;-). Oh my gosh! I wanna go back to that place. Can it be all fun again? I am so nostalgic watching all these pictures :'-(.

Polka Dots Please

I love how Polka Dots are so versatile. You don't need to wait for a season to wear them or in fact wait for any occasion. I've got enough of my polka dots outfits and I love all of them. Especially this blazer.. I was bit skeptical when I bought this if it looks too formal and works well only as formals. But let me tell you. This will go with anything and everything.. for a work meeting with formal trousers and shirts, at the same time you can wear for a family dinner or carry it as a warmer for a cocktail party when you feel chills with your drinks. Or for a girls casual day-out wearing with a simple jeans and t-shirt like this one. 
Here, I styled it with my favourite jeans over a tube top, accessorised with a simple choker and an aqua shade finger ring (not well captured but another favourite one). Ended with a pony tail and black heels which I think gave a classy look, no? What do you think? Let me know how it works for you.

Summer Dream

Starting with some "long time no see" ranting.. 😀 I can't believe that its been such a long time I opened the blog to write a post. The last time I was here, I wrote a long travel post with some nice pictures and I lost the whole thing for the second time when I was editing the format. I got fed up and procrastinated it forever. 
Then this post was supposed to go in summer around August. But I realised that managing a blog with a full-time job (which you love the most), travelling, other hobbies and long to-do lists of personal errands is not an easy task after all. And falling sick in-between all this makes it even more worse. The blog totally had to take a back seat.
Coming to the weather part, this year has been a disaster. Every one of us felt like we got cheated by Stavanger. Or the Sun God decided not to visit us. Or the Earth didn't tilt well enough for Norway to get some Sun. Whatever! Would you believe if I say that this whole year gave us the sunny days th…

Jellyfish

This is the most beautiful jellyfish I have ever seen. As beautiful as they could glow the aquariums, yet they could be the most dangerous. Which reminded me of the proverb 'Appearances are Deceptive'!
By the way, did you know that jelly fish are heartless and brainless? And then, people eat them?  Read some facts about jellyfish here.
