This year February, i was in #LasAngles and got one day free for some sightseeing. I decided to go to Universal Studio. Being a non working day, It was a lot of crowd there. I started with the Simpson ride first and quite enjoy it. Then i was waiting in the queue for the tour bus of Universal Studio, where they take everyone to show around the sets of Hollywood and a lot more.There was one Korean girl standing next to me in the line and she requested if her friends can join in the line. I was ok with it so i said sure not a problem. She called her other Korean friend who joined her. After few minutes they asked if other friends join too, so i just smiled. I have been to Korea many times so i knew some basic Korean words. I just greeted them saying "anyohaseyo"(which means hello in Korean). They were more excited than surprised and then we started interacting throughout the ride. I came to know that two of them(Jeni and Kate) were settled in NYC since birth and visited other friend(Mini) who was settled in LA.As i was alone so they invited me to join them for the rest of the day. Mini was living in LA from a long time and had been to the theme park many times, so was the best local person who could help me :)
San Francisco is the city one falls in love with. The San Francisco bay area is surrounded from three sides by the pacific ocean which brings in the coldest summers i had ever witnessed . After an hour drive from the San Jose city i was able to see the skyscrapers line of the city . Crossing amidst the clouds the skyscrapers were standing strong and rigid without any top ( because of the dense cluster of clouds) . I could only think of the transcendent view people working on top must be having . yeaah!!! i didnt went on top of those skyscrapers ( not in my hands)
After an American breakfast we proceeded on an amazing Whale watching experience. This was a first for us so we weren't sure what we should expect. We drove to Boston harbour to the Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary, a rich feeding ground for Whales, Dolphins, Sea birds and more. And the view we saw was unreal - whales dancing around us flapping their tails !! It was a clear day and we had a fantastic time.
The nation’s capital, it’s packed with things to see and do year-round. Washington boasts monuments that are a must-see; cool neighborhoods with lots of shops, restaurants and cafes; and like New York, people from all over the world. It is also the nerve center of politics. Your embassy is highly likely somewhere in Washington. As a teenager, I spent summers in Washington, staying with an uncle and other relatives who live there. And as an adult, there always seemed a reason to return to Washington, either for work or for pleasure, sometimes both.

Ferry Building, Pier 39... These are old edifices converted into lovely centres for indulging in some good grub. The Slanted Door is highly raved but I found it just about average. It wasn’t bad but it is nothing to rave about; unless you are a stranger to great food. But there were other places but I doubt if they are aiming any higher. Mama’s (a bit away) is a good brekkie place.
Once I reached the much talked about Fisherman's Wharf, it was difficult for me to decide where to start exploring the hidden experiences of the City of Bay. Truly called a tourist spot, one day seemed just too short a period of time. From the extraordinary view of sea lions at Pier 39, to the world famous statues at Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum, were the kind of sights I got to see. While the food was mouthwatering, I couldn't resist from choosing my favourites in the world fmaous clam chowder, fried fish and the well-known San Francisco sour dough. And this was just the beginning of my tour at Fisherman's Wharf. Later came the international hotspot Musee Mechanique, 1980's arcade games and Ghirardelli Square.
Navy Pier is sheer excitement! You have boat tours, rides, shopping, food everything. It's a heaven for kids and some of us looking to unleash the child within. The boat tour throughout the city is a good deal mainly if you are short of time. In fall the Halloween decorations are a treat!
Pastel Colored structures welcoming us to the IslandsWe decided to splurge a little and encash our travel points with the Mariott Group and had booked the Mariott Beachside Resort at Key West and it was truly worth it! The view was mesmerising. To wake up in the morning to the expanse of those blue waters and sails parked all around and the gradual tint in those skies as the sun comes up is enchanting. It was like a picture waiting to be painted, Alas, we all have our shortcomings, I had to make peace with capturing it on a mobile camera and Instagram it.
Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk
The beach which is also know as the broad walk beach justifies its name. It is called so because there is an amusement park that spans the length of this beach on the Santa Cruz, California waterfront. It one of the most happenings beaches I have ever been to.I wanted to go to Santa Cruz only because I found out that it is quite famous for its kayaking . But all that was happening there was an icing on the cake. It was a Sunday and there people all over. Some were dancing salsa, some were busy with beach volleyball, kids were just have fun at the rides and what not. But for me the highlight was the kayaking.While we were on our Kayak we could see sea lions so close to us. Initially it was scary because we were completely on our own but as we got comfortable it was one of the best adventures I have had.
