Six Things To Do This Summer In Seattle

Hello Summer! It is no more of Sleepless in Seattle but Summer in Seattle!!! I bet, many of us in Seattle are waiting to soak up in the sun after drenching in the rain for over 6 months now. Well, well I agree we had a disappointing spring with continuing rains and lower temperatures, but lets hope for a good and bright summer (in the defense, we had a good summer last year!).

Seattle’s Snowy Sunday

We are already in the middle of February and spring’s almost there! Like every new year, this one too seems going too fast! Seattle has seen a different winter this year with never ending rains, bright days and heavy snow fall(totally reminded me of my chilly Philly winters).

With mom visiting, we wanted to take her in and around Washington state and we started off with the mountain beauty of Washington, Mount Rainier. We heard a lot about Crystal Mountain and the view it offers of Mount Rainier. This time it was just a site-seeing fun trip on a pleasant…

Before I experience the overwhelming christmas season here, I thought of jotting down my fun experience during the two typical American holidays- Halloween and Thanksgiving. HALLOWEEN My understanding of halloween before I came here was that it is a festival of witches :-p However, after I came here, I probably understand a little more than…

“Sri Lanka”

After a long deliberation on whether I should take off from work (as if the company cannot run without me for 2 days), I finally decided that the family of 4 should go on a holiday. This holiday was meant to be very special as this would be a holiday with the Fabulous Four before the Fantastic Five (My brother is getting married soon).. After thinking over for quite a long time and convincing my dad that we should GOOO……
