Outer Banks, NC Trip

One of the yoga family came up with the idea of going to outer banks and so we yoga family went on Labor Day weekend . Yes it was before hurricane Florence.

Before going , we had planned sunrise yoga on 1 day since we all are yoga enthusiasts. Early morning we all went to beach and waited for sun to rise. Once sun came out fully, we saluted sun by doing 1 round of sun salutation. It was beautiful. Then we all scattered around and did some yoga poses to get nice pictures. Some ppl did head stand too . Sharing few pictures from that morning.

Enjoy!

Sunset Pictures Around World

Do you consider yourself visitor on earth? I do and so interested in everything earth has to offer. We are so busy complaining, crying abt stupid thugs that we forget to enjoy. Miracles are all around us. I just got up to switch off stove and glanced outside thro’ glass door and was taken back seeing pretty sky that I quickly went out to take pictures even though it was cold and stood there just amazed.

Thought of compiling few of the sunset pictures I have .

Starting with sunset view just from home.

Looking Back At FB Wall

Sometimes it’s fun to look back and see how much we have grown in life. Age , size wise and what else.

I looked at all the pictures I had posted on fb since 2010 and seems that’s when I first had joined FB. I remember in those days that I had nothing to post and everyone was posting their vacation pictures which I had none at that time. But I wanted to make my space on fb and didn’t want to be just silent observer or just share materials and quotes that goes around . My fb Wall should be abt me and can’t be all just shares.

Of course I made my fb space fun for me and lot of friends have told me they love the pictures I post and they get inspired . Since justlunchideas happened , have shared lot of things here too.

I do have 1 complain though that I hardly receive comments, like here and so don’t know if I have good reader base here. Oh well… I enjoy writing my thoughts here .

So , what did I find on my fb timeline that I myself enjoyed ?

  • Experiencing China, climbing Great Wall of China , Yoga at Mount Everest base camp Tibet.
  • Learning Ayurveda , sharing yoga and Ayurveda not only around USA , but in India and Canada .
  • Justlunchideas happened and can’t believe it’s been 5 years.
  • Reconnecting with school and college friends and exploring with them.
  • Learned to hike and drive to mountain by myself. Sometimes gps don’t work in mountains .
  • Dubai safari to visited 5000 year old temples in south India.
  • Sky diving .
  • Most recent Africa trip. Safari to Victoria fall to Cape Town.

These are just the big items but looking back made me happy. Our life should consist of what makes us happy.

Inspiring Travel Blogs from Indian women

http://www.india.com/travel/articles/10-indian-female-travel-bloggers-will-inspire-hit-road-womens-day/

I have been going through these 10 blogs from few days and enjoying reading them. It was nice to see these Indian women traveling solo and having fun. Have you travelled solo? Or have done anything that just opened more doors in your life ? Have read that life happens outside comfort zone but I do believe you have to be comfortable in doing what you are doing. I have done lot of things outside my comfort zone because I wanted to do them and then I work towards it 1 step at a time. Whatever we want to do , we have to work towards it by taking simple steps first.

Enough of my rant, just wanted to share these amazing travel blogs and may be you will get inspired to travel or to take a solo trip.

Enjoy !

Ottawa, Canada Travel


Bonus picture: My Ottawa friend , host showing how to get fall picture. 

Traveling seems to have become new interest. It opens you to so many new things, experiences. I am more of a comfort person and traveling meaning let go of all those comforts. You might get at some places and have to let go at other places. 

Ottawa is very pretty and I enjoyed my short stay there . Friend and I took a train from Toronto to Ottawa. Train was good and since it was fall time , we got to see some nice fall colors and small towns along the way.

Lot of things there in Ottawa to do. Mountains for hikers , many museums, Parliament House that you can go inside but it’s closing next year so I made just in time, ByWard market. Since I had a friend  in Ottawa , got to see real Ottawa. Whenever there’s a local person to show you around , grab the opportunity. That way you see , experience more than just touristy things.

Few pictures of Ottawa for you all to enjoy!
