Day 9 – Being stupid

Driving back from LA on a summer evening, while we knew that it should ideally take us to I-5 North to San Francisco, we noticed that our GPS is acting weirdly directing us through little streets and residential area. We followed her blindly for 20 minutes or so and then switched to Google Maps on my… Continue reading Day 9 – Being stupid

Day 8 – Watching movies with friends

Not just her posts, I read her interviews, her newspaper columns and everything about her on Google. I came across the… Continue reading Day 7 – Parents’ visit

Day 6 – Old conversations

I started typing on a completely different topic a few hours ago. I couldn’t recollect something and had to dig into my G-Talk chat history for it. One thing led to the other and I spent the last few hours reading the chat conversation from 2011 between me and my BFF. I couldn’t stop laughing… Continue reading Day 6 – Old conversations

Salt Lake City – Day 1

Salt Lake City is 5 hours drive from our place. On our initial research, we found nothing much impressive worth the drive. But we dig further and came up with a list of things to do which was impossible to fit into a weekend trip. So we had to push many attractions for another day… Continue reading Salt Lake City – Day 1
