Wrapping up 2023

I love writing my yearly recaps as much as I love going back and rereading them. It’s such a nice walk down to memory lane, but also a great way to see how far I’ve come and where all life has taken me. You can find my year recaps in the lifestyle section of my blog.

LIFESTYLE, BOOKS

In the city that never sleeps, where the rhythms of life are fast and furious, New York City harbors a treasure trove for the bibliophile, a sanctuary where quiet contemplation and the intoxicating scent of books fill the air. As someone deeply in love with the written word, I’ve had the privilege of exploring the numerous bookstores sprinkled across the city, and each of them holds a unique place in my heart. It’s not just the titles within, but the stories these stores tell, the memories they evoke, and the knowledge they offer. Today, let me take you on a tour of some of my most cherished literary sanctuaries in the Big Apple.

Fall foliage road trip through upstate New York

Let me paint a picture for you: the days are growing shorter, there’s a distinct chill in the air, and all around, the world is changing. Trees that once stood tall and green are now ablaze with fiery reds, oranges, and golds. This, my friends, is autumn in Upstate New York—a season of pure magic where the very landscape seems to come alive with color and the air is infused with the earthy scent of fallen leaves. It’s a time when this part of the world becomes an enchanting canvas of nature’s artistry, a spectacle that has to be seen to be believed. Upstate New York in the fall is not just a destination; it’s an experience, a must-visit for anyone who treasures the beauty of the season.

TRAVEL, SAUDI ARABIA

Saudi Arabia 7 Day Itinerary [Riyadh & AlUla]

Took me a while, but I finally sat down to write my travel posts from Saudi Arabia. My impressions (even 5 months later) are still very much that Saudi Arabia is a beautiful country with out of this world nature and the beauty of being unspoiled by tourists (I hope this stays). It will probably be my favorite trip I’ve taken in 2023 and in top 5 trips I’ve taken in my life so far.

In this blog post I will be sharing the itinerary I had for my week long trip to Saudi Arabia. During the 7 days there I managed to visit Riyadh (including one day trip outside of Riyadh) and AlUla.

AlUla: A Must-Visit Desert Oasis

y year I make a list of all the places I want to visit in the year. For 2023 on top of the list was AlUla. Located in the heart of Saudi Arabia, right next to the holy place of Mecca is this stunning desert Oasis. Many asked me why would I want to visit Saudi Arabia and what is there to see. My answer was, it’s a country that only recently opened for tourism (so I want to see it and experience it before tourism “ruins it”) and AlUla (I only had to see a few photos of it online and buy the ticket).
