    Day 32-35 – Long Awaited Chicago!
    First and foremost things I had like to say “Hello” to my fellow readers after a gap of 4 days. Los Angeles was pretty much well, I enjoyed to the fullest extent especially at very “IN” and happening places like Disneyland and Universal Studios. After the fun filled day at Universal, it was very quite moment for me to return home very heavy hearted. But there always come an “End” to FUN after hilarious thrilling experiences of anyone’s life. I understood this fact, and started packing up my luggage to leave for Chicago the next morning. It’s been now three days; I haven’t had enough sleep or enough of rest. We had connecting flights from LA – Salt Lake City – Chicago, after getting down at Salt Lake City I was quite a bit excited about my next flight which I thought would be on time. But to my surprise, the  [...]

    Day 31 – Universal Studios
    The same driver, the same bus was waiting for us at Hilton morning right at 7:30 am for pick up. It was a very pleasant day and the temperatures were expected at 70-75° Fahrenheit. I really wished a very exciting day today and indeed it was with lots of fun and thrill filled day. We started to drive along the streets of Hollywood Boulevard and within some time we were up at the top point of Hollywood hill. It was an amazing experience to see the whole of San Fernando Valley from the top of the hill. It looked amazingly beautiful, as it was early morning and we could smell the fresh flowers, grass and beautiful fresh air passing by. We stopped at a steep slope alongside the hill to click a few pictures with the word, “HOLLYWOOD” on the mountain. Our tour guide explained us about the beautiful area and also how the area was developed  [...]

    Day 28-29 Enjoying Los Angeles
    Wow, the morning was beautiful, the weather was good but it was a little lazy and boring to get up. We had a morning check out at 11:00 am from the hotel and I got up at 10:30, u hurriedly packed up everything in a mess. I was happy that hotel guys did not fine me for checking out at 12:00 noon. Well, we did not had much time to board our bus back to LA but enjoyed quite a bit well over the Vegas Strip. Even at noon 12 people were out on strip drinking and laughing and having fun. I browsed a quick look at the hotels and casinos I did not get chance into and entered Shea’s where I ate my Subway, it was filling lunch for me and later out on we went to Caesar’s to check my luck all over again. Right at 3:30 pm, our bus tour guide came to pick us up at Flamingoes. I had always loved these luxurious buses out here giving you all  [...]

    Day 27 – The wonders of Nevada, Arizona
    Wow! A beautiful morning and I could still hear some party going on around the places. Right at 7:00 am in the morning we were all ready to have a beautiful 14 hours journey to Grand Canyon. The Lux Bus took us around different hotels to pick up the hotel and after driving for sometime we got down at Anaheim to get our tickets to Grand Canyon and back. After waiting for nearly 20 minutes, we got our approved stickers on t-shirts and hop on to Bus No. 1. There were in all 5 buses with the same tour operator, the bus was quite filled up by the time we entered it so did not have much options to choose our seat. Well, the road was never ending and it seemed a little boring as if there is never going to be the end of journey. Our tour guide was a lovely man, he joked and gave speeches relating to whatever places we would pass around the  [...]

    Day 26 – Sin City Las Vegas
    A tiring journey to Las Vegas, almost four and half-hours but yes they were fruitful after looking over at the mountainous ranges on freeways across the city of Los Angeles and the outskirts of Las Vegas. We took our morning pick-up from Days Inn at Hollywood right at 7:00 am. The bus was a shuttle bus that took us around the place where we were supposed to take over a big Luxbus Liner. It was long and luxurious bus providing us good comfort while on a travel with big windows and of course a free wi-fi service. After reaching Vegas, we were directed to our respective hotels.

There were shopping outlets on the roadside for a quick bargain and highly decorated bigger hotels and casinos like Flamingos, Caesars Palace, Imperial Palace, Casino Royale, Harrahs and lots  [...]

    Well, am back up in the morning writing my lovely experiences of yesterday. It is refreshing to have lovely upma in the morning made by pamposh aunty with a hot cup of tea. Yesterday was a bit tiresome and exciting as well, morning we started from Houston at around 6:00 am in the morning to reach San Antonio by 10:00 am. After refreshing ourselves we left for Sea world which was just 4-5 miles for Thusu uncle’s house. Since the time we have been in Texas, I have been hearing that this place is a must and so I was finally off to the place. The huge gates of Sea world welcomed us, I could see a huge gate structure made of glass and a lovely decoration at the front with artificial dolphins designed. There were huge number of people who had come to visit the place and I was truly impressed with the type of discipline people have  [...]

    Day 21 – Riding in the waves of Galveston & Kimah Island
    The day was pretty much bright with lovely sunny day and cold breeze running outside the house. The winters had been longer this time throughout United States of America; at least this is what I have been hearing from locals here.  Galveston is around one and half drive from Houston and it is a lovely island where you can see lovely vacation homes. It’s a luxury life with people having their private beach houses and private boats as well.
