A beautiful dusk in Houston, Texas (USA)

Imagine yourself sitting in a balcony after a hectic day at work. A glass of wine with a view such as this. Connecting to nature is always a great way to flush out all the stress. Isn’t it?


9 crucial tips for your next solo travel adventure!

  • Trust no one. Always double check.
  • Be aware of the latest updates on your surroundings. Watch CNN 🙂
  • Keep posting on social networks, and don’t forget to turn on the location services on your phone.
  • Keep a tab on the border crossings such as state borders and national borders.
  • Keep some gasoline in spare inside the car trunk.
  • Put 911 and insurance contacts on speed dials.
  • Have some cash inside the car, wallet and luggage bag. More often than not, all three things (car, wallet, luggage bag) would never be accessible at the same time.
  • Prefer “drive-thru” than “park and eat”. Parking is the biggest unavoidable problem while traveling.
  • Don’t forget to enable find your iPhone feature.


Haunted and humongous

A memorable trip to Los Angeles (California)

I was driving at 90 mph tops on freeways, crossing Arizona-California state border.

There are many things you notice and many you don’t when you are driving with friends and relatives or both. However, I was driving by myself in midst of hot and sunny concrete roads with nowhere to halt for 120 miles stretch. All of a sudden, I saw my fuel indicator dying. To make the situation worse, next to the gas station was 72 miles away. My heart started pounding really hard.


Meanwhile, these hot sunny deserted roads are haunting me and pushing me to drive fast and faster. In the middle of this chaos, “a beautiful implemented idea in action” caught my attention. There were some 5000 humongous white colored windmills rotating on the sheer mountains on both sides of the freeway. I couldn’t resist checking the normal wind speeds in this particular area and wasn’t surprised at all to find that wind usually flow 170% faster in this region.

Sometimes, these small things make a huge difference. Let’s try to recycle the available resources we have instead of going blindly and recklessly. At least, we owe this much to our coming generations for their better future.

Finally, got a twinkle in my eye, seeing the gas station (as you can see below). I pulled over, had some dark coffee, filled up the tank and got along with my road trip.
