Back to Blogging

This is my second post since my first in August and I apologize for the gap. Meanwhile, I have been to Providence, hiked a few trails in New Hampshire and Vermont, learnt to use chopsticks, tried my hand at go-karting and made some new friends. But like Paul Theroux said, “Travel is glamorous only in retrospect.” It was not all fun and games. I have left out parts where we got lost, felt tired and fought over silly things.
Now that summer’s over, flavors like pumpkin latte is showing up in cafes and boots are making a comeback on the streets. It’s officially fall in New England.
Being from India, I look forward to the four seasons and enjoy the variations in colors and flavors. The change is subtle at first and then suddenly, the new season takes over. Each has its own distinct personality. Summer is like a young kid playing hooky and spring is a couple very much in love. Winter could be a Grandfather with silver white hair and autumn is the Grandma who invites the entire family over for a hearty dinner.
On the travel front, I have a ‘Ride the Rails’ trip coming up and if everything works out as planned, I will be blogging as I travel throught Montana and the northern Rockies!
