Best of 2021 – Goodreads

I had set a goal of 60 books for the year 2021 and conquered it by completing 80 books. Little unbelievable for me. This is by far my best performance in the last 5 years. I have never set a big goal like this before and I went 20 books above the goal, that was…

December 2021 Through My Lenses

The only trip we took in December was to NJ to my sister’s house. If you remember from our earlier posts, we have visited her in October and then she joined us again in November. Harmit was really missing her, so we decided on one more road trip to NJ. For most of December we…

Goodreads of December 2021

We pretty much did nothing in December, travel-wise. That was mainly because of tremendous office work, many of my colleagues resigned from their positions in favor of attractive offers and that put me on the hot seat. So besides the office work, I was able to invest some time in reading. I read a total…

Mount Sanitas Loop Hike Trail – Colorado

November 2021 Through My Lenses

As said in my previous post, November was a pretty easy month activity-wise. Post my sister’s arrival, we went for a road trip to Colorado to celebrate her birthday. On that trip, we covered Strawberry Hot Spring, Grand Lake-town, a small portion of RMNP, and completed a strenuous hike to Mt. Sanitas near Boulder, Colorado….

Goodreads Of November 2021

November month went too fast. We celebrated the birthday of my elder sister on our Colorado trip and sent our best birthday wishes to the younger one, living in Canada. Other than that we stayed pretty much at home. Winter is already at the doorstep, so no more hiking. I managed to read 4 books…

Need Winter Break? Visit Strawberry Hot Springs, Colorado

During the conversation with our friends (Manish & Sonam) at their home, the topic shifted to Colorado, our favorite vacation destination. We discussed all the beautiful places of Colorado from RMNP, Colorado Springs, Boulder, Denver to Montrose and Gunnison, and revisited the memories. They also, having similar interests, have been there many times. Manish told…

Goodreads Of October 2021

Apart from celebrating my birthday, a road trip to New Jersey with halts in Ohio and Pennsylvania, Halloween night at a haunted house, I read four books in the month. I got the recommendation from my sister about 2008 Booker prize winner The White Tiger, a story about a poor Indian man Balram Halwai who…
