Travelling and Vacation are like Stress Busters which helps to unplug and recharge ourselves from the monotonous routine we follow in our day to day life .
Travelling to new and different locations teaches us lots of new things and makes an unforgettable memory .
After marriage I travelled to different cities in India with husband and all those makes a lovely memory to be cherished life long . The places I travelled are Hyderabad , Mumbai , Delhi , Noida , Ranchi , Ajmer , Gulbarga , Gurgaon etc .
Every city has a tale to tell , We meet new peoples , We learn about the place in detail , it’s cuisines , tourist spots , local language and traditions etc and experiencing all these is fun .
Regarding International Travel , I visited two countries , Saudi Arabia and USA .
And trip to both these countries were awesome with lots of new experiences and learnings and many sweet memories .
We went to Saudi Arabia in the year 2003 for Haj Pilgrimage .
That was a Spiritual Journey , A new land with different language and customs , yet everything so familiar as have read and heard a lot about it before .
Travelling to holy cities of Mecca , Medina , Mina is something which can not be explained in words .
The interesting part is one can see people from all around the world there and inspite of having language difference people still do communicate with each other in some way or other .
That made me realize that our world is really a global village , We are all one , no point in having differences and useless enmity with anyone .
I met and talked with people from Malaysia , Indonesia , Sri Lanka , Bangladesh , Turkey and learned a lot about their customs and traditions , their food habits etc .
So that was an enriching experience .
Then last year in December 2017 I went to USA with my kids for two months, since my husband is working there as an IT professional and we wanted to spend some time there with him .
My Vacation to USA is a like a Dream Vacation .
We went from Hyderabad to Dubai then via a connecting flight to Seattle which is in the West Coast of America . Seattle is an IT hub with lots of Indian IT Companies there .
Stayed there for some time at a friends house then we travelled to Portland where husband was working , it was a long drive of around four hours and we enjoyed watching everything outside , be it be snow or Pine trees , everything looked so beautiful and different .
Stayed in Portland for around a month and then travelled to few other cities like Denver , Kansas City , Missouri , Dallas etc .
One thing which we enjoyed most was Snowfall , since my kids have never seen snowfall here in Hyderabad , so it was fun for them .
Sharing some of the pictures of my USA travel .
