Vegas!

In early Spring of 2016, I took a few days trip to Las Vegas. It was a pleasant visit. I did some slot-machining (of course), and also exploring the Vegas Strip. The weather was superb for that time of the year. So, my only experience to Vegas in March/April was quite an ideal time to…

Tropical Island, Langkawi!

Langkawi Island is a place to be! I said that not because I have a place on this tropical island, but Langkawi offers one of the best vacation spots in the tropic, all year round. This island is located on the Northern part of Malaysia. It is a popular destination for local and foreign tourists….

Niagara Falls at Last

It was never too late to take the trip. The Niagara Falls will always be there. I was in Ohio that year of 2000. Summer was almost over, but there were some nice days for road trip. It was too early for fall foliage safari though. But taking a 6-hour road trip to the North…

The City of Hanoi, Vietnam

Beautifully raw and chaotic, but I was so attracted to exploring the city, like a sewing needle to a magnet. The old city of Hanoi offers stories and answers to anyone; whether or not you are a backpacker or business man staying in a 5-star hotel. This was a 4-day trip to Hanoi and it…
