If my family and I had had more time in Chicago, I definitely would have done some ice skating under the Bean! This was a visit the day before Thanksgiving, and it looked wayyy less crowded than Rockafeller Center in NYC! ❄ . . .
Have you ever been ice-skating in the city center of Chicago or NYC? Or do you prefer your ice-skating surrounded by nature? 🌲 . . .

The motorbikes in Saigon are daunting. Highlight of my first 24 hours was having a local 👏🏼 for me as I walked across the road, confidently into traffic- the only effective way to do it (I had to get escorted the first time I tried). •
If you missed my stories yesterday, you missed my honest comparison of NYC and CHICAGO • • • 🤔 Let the hate mail fly in!!! . . .
JK... But really. Chicago was so much more friendly, cleaner, and quieter than NYC! The people, the architecture... Chicago won hands down. I'll give you that NYC has the best food. But it's also the most expensive! Chicago food [and drinks] were much more affordable. The city seems way more peaceful and unassuming than NYC. It's also wayyyyy less pretentious. Man, the last time I was in NYC I was rolling my eyes so hard at every hipster with a man-bun, fedora, pair of over-sized glasses, or romper that passed by! There was none of that nonsense in Chicago! 😂 . . .
Hello from Oman.
Also, Happy 48th National Day to my favourite, my home for the last four years, the UAE !
Thankyou for being so warm and giving me the opportunity to do what I love the most, travel ❤️
UAE, stay tall; stay strong! #UAEnationalDay#travelposts#travelgram#oman
I was never one of those who could just go out and be friendly with strangers. I wasn't great at going out of my comfort zone, but then nothing grows in comfort zone. I now live in this humongous city where it's really easy to blend into the crowd. I hardly know anyone here to have a real connection or to sometimes pour out my heart. So, I have discovered this other way of expressing myself. I walk around London and I see as much as my eyes can absorb. I have started writing again, meeting strangers on the tube and have a short heart touching conversation. The other day, on my way to London Bridge, I met an Iranian lady on the tube. Even though she wasn't that fluent in English, she striked up a conversation. She told me all about her voluntary work at the eye hospital, her children and how she and her husband moved to London seeking asylum. We might never cross paths again, but the "it was so lovely to meet you" at the end of our conversation means a lot more to me than a lasting friendship. She really did mean it. I guess our conversation was her way of expressing to a stranger about her struggle with life here. And it was my way of showing whatever limited amount of care I could show to her in those few minutes. It's not necessary to be friends with someone to care, we just have to know how not to be apathetic. #travel#traveller#travelgram#travels#travelwithme#travelling#instatravel#traveldiaries#travelblog#uk#uktravel#travellove#travelposts#writers#traveluk#london#london2019#travelblogger#travelstories#indiantravelblogger#writer#writersoninstagram#travel_captures#like4likes#likesforlike#like4like#likeforlike#followme#followforfollow
