In my childhood, I dreamt of living in this castle. Millions across the world can relate to my dream. J.K. Rowling wrote one of my favorite books of all time and Warner Bros. made an epic out of it, taking us to a journey through the Diagon Alley into the Malfoy Manor, from Privet Drive to Godric’s Hollow. I was fascinated about going to Hogwarts one day, study in class of Professor McGonagall and have a principal like Albus Dumbledore.

While visiting Universal Studios, Los Angeles, all these memories flashed in front of my eyes and it felt like fulfilling a childhood dream.
My travel took me to El Matador Beach where I saw vast ocean caressing my feet and giving me a lesson of humbleness. I realized that when such a vast powerhouse can be so humble with you that why can’t we be the same with our fellows. We always believe in show of power to the world where as nature always hides its power and show its beautiful and serene side.

The waves hitting the rocks made a melodious music creating an atmosphere of utter calmness. It’s a place where I felt detached from the rat race in which I felt lost all my life.
While on my road trip to Oregon from Bay area, I stopped by this beautiful lake. At first I didn’t know what it was but the beauty of it was so mesmerizing that I had to stop and explore. After talking to some of the people I found out that this is called Castle lake. And yes I didn’t searched on internet because my phone had no signal here.
I spent over a hour here and I wish I had more time. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Mount Shasta or going to Crater lake from California as a pit stop.
I visited Malibu beach for the nth time couple of weeks ago but it was special this time as I was with her. Followed by a small hike to Point Dume, we sat on the beach. Waves touching our feet and cool breeze added to charm of this exquisite place. It felt peaceful away from the rat race. I think this is one of the best beaches in So Cal.
While getting used to new normal, I have been trying to keep myself busy these days. Few days ago I took the opportunity to visit my college campus at California State University Northridge. I was greeting with this serene site where flowers bloomed and scented the whole campus. College days are considered to be one of the most fond memory for everyone and mine were no different. I still miss those classes, lectures, group assignments and above all amazing food on the campus. I hope and wish that everything soon get back to normal.
