Banff, Canada

Have you ever been to a place that instantly made you feel like it’s where you’re meant to be? Like you lived your whole life wondering why you don’t fit in where you are and then suddenly, it all became clear? For me, that day was July 12, 2017. The day started in downtown Calgary…

2018 – The Journey through Anxiety

I know, every year I write some post talking about how great the year has been, where I traveled to, who I met, what I did. This year was not a bad one, but it certainly was tough. Though it may not have been obvious to those who were not close to me, at this…

San Francisco Day 7: Facebook and the Giants

7 July 2017. Natalie had arranged for us to meet her friend at the Facebook Headquarters in Palo Alto, so needless to say, I was pretty damn excited. We had only gone to see the Like sign on 1 Hacker Way, but by meeting Stuart, we’d be given inside access to the Facebook campus. Obviously,…

San Francisco Day 6: Piers, Trams, and The Matrix

6 July 2017.  A year prior to this trip, I had sent Natalie an article on Facebook about a lunch time market in the city. It turned out to be the Ferry Building – one of the most famous landmarks in San Francisco with the sea-facing “Port of San Francisco” writing that I had seen…

San Francisco Day 4: My First 4th

4 July 2017. American Independence Day. There is definitely something special about being in a country on the day of one of the biggest celebrations of the year. For everyone else, it’s “the 4th of July”, but for Americans, it’s simply known as “the 4th”. I loved taking a short stroll in Natalie’s back yard…

San Francisco Day 3: Palo Alto, Facebook, and the Marriot

3 July 2017. Natalie’s home is basically a stone’s throw away from Silicon Valley, the southern part of the Bay Area. It was the second day she was going to spoil me because she had rescheduled the nail appointment she had on the Saturday so that we could go together. I had no idea where…

2017: An Epic Year in Pictures

Wow has this been an eventful year. From getting a certification to walking on a glacier to making lifelong friends, I have so much to write about. Many of us tend to focus on the bad but there was so much good this year. Here are what I considered to be the main highlights of…

Journey to San Francisco

I can’t actually put into words just how excited  I was for this trip. I had never been to the Western Hemisphere before and considering all the trips I’ve done to Europe, it was about time. On the evening of 30 June, I boarded the full Lufthansa Flight 9545 to Frankfurt. Call me crazy but…
