Thursday Tree Love: Glastonbury US

Glastonbury US #ShotoniPhone

This tree in Glastonbury, Connecticut is in full bloom during the fall season.

But the other tree behind it is a pale shadow of itself with its empty branches rising towards the sky. It is preparing for the winter as the leaves have all fallen by the wayside.

Life by the window seat

Life by the window seat

Sometimes it makes you lose yourself amidst the clouds.

Sometimes it takes you to lush green fields and valleys.

Sometimes it takes you to mountains far and beyond.

Sometimes it gives you a sneak peak of the coastline.

Sometimes you experience the day and a lot of light all around while at other times its the night and only the loneliness and the darkness that sticks around with you.

Sometimes you see the snowy winter while at others times you feel the hot summer or the monsoons.

Sometimes it takes you to a world you have only dreamt of.

Sometimes it makes you forget your emotions and brings a smile on your face.

Sometimes it makes you think of your troubles and brings a tear to your eyes.

Life by the window seat is sure to give you all these experiences and more.

Skywatch Friday – View from Helgeandsholmen Island, Stockholm

Helgeandsholmen Island in Stockholm

Dusk falls over Stockholm on a cold winter day..

“The light is amber, the air still; the daylilies have folded in on themselves. Soon, the hooded blue of dusk will fall, followed by the darkness of night and the sky writing of the stars, indecipherable to us mortals, despite our attempts to force narrative upon them.”

Moscow Diaries: Christmas nights in Moscow

Christmas in Moscow

Christmas in Russia and about 15 other countries is celebrated every year on January 7th rather than December 25th. The Russians start their year with around 10 vacation days which begin with the New Year celebrations and culminate in the Christmas festivities.

The primary reason for this is the fact that the Russian orthodox church follows the Julian calendar which is 13 days behind the Gregorian calendar.

The mercury touches 50 degrees

The summer has slowly but surely set in many parts of the world. As the mercury touched a scorching 50 degree Celsius (122 degree Fahrenheit) for a while here in Kuwait today, I was left wondering on the trials and tribulations various people around the world undergo due to extreme weather events.

Moscow Diaries: A walk at the Gorky park

Gorky Central Park of Culture and Leisure (Центральный парк культуры и отдыха имени Горького) is one of Moscow’s Central parks located next to the Moskva river and spans an area of about 300 acres. It’s the perfect place to see the way Russians spend their free time. The park gets its name from the famous Soviet writer, Maxim Gorky.

While at an earlier point of time, the park had various rides including roller-coasters, today it is more of an eco-friendly park which also has an ice-skating rink and wi-fi.

I had come to the park with the intention of taking the Radisson Cruise on the tranquil waters of the Moskva river. Since I missed it by a few minutes, I decided to take a walk along the river itself. And mind you, while it does look sunny, the temperatures were still hovering around -5 degrees.

Kuwait diaries: A walk at the Marina Beach

The winter months in Kuwait are the best time for taking a stroll at the numerous beaches. The maximum temperatures at about 12-15 degrees are way cooler than the 50+ degrees it rises to during the summer months.

Taking advantage of the same, I stepped out for a walk at the Marina beach a few moons ago. And I must say it was a pleasure just watching the tranquil waters of the Persian Gulf with the cool breeze hitting one’s face.
