Look back to 2018

Since I started my blog late in 2018, there wasn't a lot of post although, I have so much to share. This is why I put down this brief overview of how my 2018 went. With this post, hope you guys get to know me a little better. I have always wanted to start a blog but due to college, CPA exams, work and my wedding, I never got a chance to start. Now that I am done with all this, I finally took a step in starting a blog as well as traveled to a lot of places domestically and internationally in 2018. In new year 2019, I will continue to travel and give more time to my blog.

During the first quarter of the year, I am usually really busy at work until March 31, so, nothing adventurous happens during this time.

Right after the busy season at work ended in 2018, I went to San Francisco Ice cream museum and Color Factory with my husband. These are pop up museums and worth all the hype. They do not sell tickets onsite, you have to buy them online. It was so much fun,  and you can take a lot of Instagram worthy pictures. I am sharing few of mine from both of the museums.

Color Factory is now closed. If you want to go to the Ice cream museum, I have attached a link here

In July, we took a road trip to Colorado to help my brother in law move. We drove through Nevada, Utah and Wyoming. It was a good long drive and also a good break from everything. The weather there was very warm and sunny. Rocky Mountains were oh so beautiful. I loved how green Colorado was. Also, I really wan't dressed appropriately for Rocky Mountains LOL. Oh well.

Denver Botanical Garden:

The same month I went to Chicago for few days because my husband had to attend a conference. I loved it so much, there was so much to do in Chicago. The weather was slightly hot for me but I had a lot of fun. In 3 days, I was able to do a lot of things. If you guys want, I can do a blog on things to do in Chicago at a later time, please let me know. For now, these picture explains how much fun I had.

Chicago Water Taxi - River Crusie:

Buckingham Fountain:

Then, on August, I went to Calgary, Alberta with my dad to catch up with my sisters. It is always so good to spend some quality time with my family. Family is everything. We talk to each other very often and just chit chat silly things. We went to Banff National Park and it was oh so beautiful. The view was to die for from every possible angle. Sadly the first day I was there, the air was too bad and smoky, the view was too foggy due to wildfire in British Columbia. Luckily, the next day it cleared up and we were able to get some good pictures.

Lake Louise - Banff National Park:

Lake Moraine - Banff National Park:

In September, we went to Europe. It was our first time going to Europe and Oh Man! we had a BLAST. It was so much fun, it was everything I imagined. I am so happy I took this trip. I will share my European experience some other time in my blog. Overall my experience was awesome. I went to London, Paris, Lucerne, Florence, Venice, Rome and Positano. Each of these places were very unique. I ate a lot of gelato (like twice a day - no kidding), pastas and house wine. It was really fun.

In October, we made a quick trip to Dallas, TX for our friends wedding. We had an amazing time catching up with friends and celebrated the wedding.

Lastly, before the year ended, we made a relaxing trip nearby to Bear Valley, CA. We went tubing, it was my first time. I was very excited to try out and it was great. We rented a cabin through AirBnB and it was all very nice and cozy. We just lit up the wooden fireplace and enjoyed quality time together.


Overall I had so much fun in 2018 and a lot of sightseeing. I had never traveled so much before. I am glad I finally get a chance to do so. I love travelling and hope I get to keep travelling to more places in the future. Also,  I look forward to blogging more in 2019.

Hope you enjoyed reading my 2018 overview. I hope to bring you more in 2019.

  1. That’s awesome that you get to travel! My husband and I are trying to get to the point where we can also, but there’s so much that goes into it! Your pictures are beautiful! I think you should write about what to do in Chicago! Thanks for sharing!
