What to Wear to a Wedding in India

After leaving the Qutub Minar, it was time to go shopping for our sari fabric. We picked up Goli, her parents, Sierra and Meike and went to the shops. There were several stories of more fabrics than you’ve ever seen. It’s almost overwhelming! But the colors are amazing. We all managed to find a sari…

Delhi and the Qutub Minar

It took me 27 hours to fly from Seattle, through Germany to New Delhi. And unfortunately for me, I landed at 9am. I met Maggie at our hotel, as well as Nitish, the groom and Maggie’s former roommate from their days in Spain. We immediately left for a salon to get a bit of pampering…

Lexington, Concord, Gloucester and Rockport

As much as I love Boston, it might be the charming little New England towns that surround it that I love the most. There’s just so much history here! Have I sad that before? Lexington and Concord are most famous for the 17 mile Paul Revere ride that he set out on to warn the…

Boston: My Favorite US City

Aside from Seattle, of course. But for reals. I love this city. Boston is like Seattle, but with tons of American history and New England charm. I’ve been 3 times and will be going back for a 4th time in November this year, but more on that in another post. On this trip, my friend…

Women’s World Cup Final: USA vs Japan

Waaaaay  back at the beginning of the year, when my friend Jenny first suggested buying tickets to the Women’s World Cup, we had no way of knowing who would be in the final. We just knew that it would be fun to attend the match no matter who was there, and of course there was…

Tanzania has been an amazing country to explore and discover and has so much to offer. What I thought would be a once in a life time trip has turned into a place I now hope to return to someday. And I’ve been so inspired by this area, I’ve already planned a tour around all…

Diving At Mnemba Island

Before I tell you about my diving experience here at Mnemba Island, I want to explain the camera I used for these pictures.  This is very exciting for me because I’ve always had poor luck with underwater cameras, and right before I left, I acquired a GoPro HERO4 Silver. I also added a red filter for…

Walking Tour of Stone Town

After our tour of the spice farm, we drive into Zanzibar City for a walking tour Stone Town, the historical part of the city. It starts off at the local market where we see all kinds of food on display. The meat and fish sections have a particularly distinctive smell. I try to hold my breath,…

Zanzibar Spice Farm

After laying on the beach and relaxing for a few days (I even got a pedicure), we decide it’s time to do some touristing. Our hotel offers a ridiculously expensive day trip to a local spice farm and Stone Town combo. While I’m really glad we did it, I don’t feel it was worth the…
