Destination Herndon > Baltimore > Washington DC


The four-day long Thanksgiving weekend saw me take off to a couple of North Eastern states in the US. While most of the country was busy shopping on Black Friday, wading through the crowded stores for offers and deals on everything from electronics to home furnishings, my friend and her husband were kind enough to have me over at their place at Herndon, Virginia for 3 days, starting the day after Thanksgiving. From over Herndon, they drove me down to Baltimore and DC over the next two days. Here’s a glimpse.

Outside Capitol House – Washington, DC


It was a hectic weekend. The days and nights were both tightly scheduled. But in general, I loved the travel, and loved the feeling that left me exhausted at the end of it all.

While I'm on it, I have to mention about a great little town I visited yesterday. Bethlehem, also called as the “Christmas City of USA” is a nice little town in Pennsylvania; about an hour and quarter from where I live. The town is known for its culture rooted back to the 1700s, founded and inhabited by the Moravians. We took a 45 minute bus tour around the city by night. It was a weekday, so we did this after work. Our guide for the night took us through a timeless journey through the city, and explained the way early Moravians worked as missionaries to spread the word about their religion and the celebration that is, Christmas.

We ended the day by having exotic Indian food at a nice restaurant in Bethlehem. I know what you’re thinking, that Indian food can’t be exotic? Trust me, last night, it was!

It seems like it was only hours since I did all this, but it’s Wednesday and I’m already planning for the impending weekend. I’m hoping that will save me from feeling homesick again!

It's nice to see you're having a good time over there and keeping busy seems the best way to avoid home-sickness.
Enjoy every moment because it all passes very quickly.

Yep, keeping myself busy is the best thing I can do. Besides, the winter isn't helping much! You are kinda tied up to your home and cant do much :-/ But I am trying my best to keep myself occupied both during the evenings as well as during the weekends. :)
