A Majestic Sunset on the Susquehanna

For this post, I really don’t want to say much except that I planned an evening out with my friend, T and we unexpectedly got to experience one of the most magical sunsets ever! (I have decided that I’m going to start using initials in my posts from now on instead of saying “my friend” all the time.) Originally, we had decided to meet up at Home 231 (a restaurant) after she got off work. But as I was driving on Front St. to get to the restaurant, I noticed the river was foggy and continuously changing. I thought to myself there is no way I’m not stopping here for a bit. So I called up T and told her to meet me at the river first. She was so glad that I did because just look at these photos!   Shout out to T for being a natural model! Is there a…

Roundup of the 10 Most Viewed Blog Posts in 2016

I’ve decided to reminisce and do a roundup of my most viewed posts of 2016. I’ve come such a long way since I first started this blog, a little over a year ago. I want to thank all my loyal followers who continue to read my posts and support me by clicking on my blog on a regular basis. I appreciate it a lot! 1. Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque – Abu Dhabi, UAE – I’m not surprised that this is one of the top posts of the year. Although I didn’t go to the UAE last year, it has been probably one of my most memorable experiences. And this mosque was a site to behold! 2. Sunken City – San Pedro California – If you look at the pictures from this post you will know why this is also on top. A city that sank and then turned into a piece of…

Snapchat Story Series – Pennsylvania Farm Show 2017

One of the main events that happens in Harrisburg is the Pennsylvania Farm Show which is the “largest indoor agriculture exposition in the nation.” It comes to the Harrisburg Farm Show Complex every January for a week. This year, I was lucky enough to be there to attend it for the 2nd time in my life! I really loved it last time so I was excited to be going again (you’ll see why). We went on Saturday night but I didn’t have enough time to edit my photos and show you all its glory today. So for now, I just want to leave my Snapchat story here for you to watch. 😀 Actual pictures coming soon! (Does anyone else not like listening to their own voice?) Featured in this video: 1. Dip sampling 2. Flap jack sampling 3. Holland biscuit sampling 4.Butter sculpture 4. Bees, Sheep, Cows, Bulls, Ducks and more 5. A lot…

Washington D.C. Architecture – Islamic Center

Happy new year everyone! I hope you had a lovely New Year’s Eve and I pray that this coming year be full of blessings for all. My first post this year will be the continuation of my recent D.C. trips which really opened up my eyes to new architecture in the area. On the same day we saw the Washington National Cathedral, we also came to The Islamic Center. It is located on Embassy Row on Massachusetts Ave. The original reason for its existence was that in 1944 the Turkish ambassador had died and there was no mosque for his funeral. After support from the diplomatic community and the Muslim community across the nation, it was completed in 1957. This structure was designed by an Italian architect Mario Rossi who sought inspiration from 15th century Mamluk Egypt. The entrance is covered in beautiful horseshoe arches (that I could not get enough of). This…

Creamy Avocado Cilantro Dressing

Today I have the easiest most delicious dressing recipe for you, a creamy avocado cilantro dressing. And it goes great on literally everything! Creamy Avocado Cilantro Dressing Ingredients: -1 avocado -2 garlic cloves -1/3 cup yogurt -1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro -2 tbs fresh lemon juice (or lime) -2 tbs olive oil -1/2 tsp salt -1/2 cup water -1 green chili (optional) Instructions: 1. Place all the ingredients (except water) in a blender and blend until smooth. 2. Add water slowly until you reach a consistency you like. 3. Keep it in a tight container in the refrigerator for about 1-2 weeks. Tips: -If you don’t like things to be too garlic-y I’d stick with one clove of garlic. -It goes great on salad, fajitas, tacos or even that chili cheese dip I made recently. I hope you try it and let me know how it went! 🙂

Washington D.C. Architecture – National Cathedral

I hope everyone who celebrates, had a lovely Christmas! May you’re lives always be filled with love, happiness, laughter and delicious food! 🙂 Today, I am going to be sharing photos of a new place I saw during my visit to Washington D.C., the Washington National Cathedral. As an admirer of architecture, my friend suggested we check it out.  This Gothic style cathedral was finished in 1990 and is the 2nd largest in the US and the 6th largest in the whole world! It really was massive and we could see it from really far away which makes sense because the top of its tower is the highest point in D.C. It’s located on top of Mount Saint Albans in Northwest Washington. Once we got to the area, we saw Olmsted Woods and noticed a pathway to through it called the “Pilgrim Way” and decided to take that up to the Cathedral.…
