Pink beaches, conch, and southern hospitality!

Hola and happy Friday! Looking back at my blog posts I realized I haven’t posted about the cruises I took last year. In June 2018 Aditya and I took a cruise from NYC to Bermuda. We took the NCL Escape which is a mega ship with awesome features such as broadway shows and even a brewery. It was a really cool ship! It sailed smoothly to Bermuda where it was docked overnight for 3 nights. That was so great so we could go out and explore, stay out late, and come back on the ship to eat, drink (free drinks!), and sleep in our stateroom. Bermuda was beautiful! We went to horseshoe beach which has pink sands due to the red algae, checked out the crystal caves, and took a mini cruise around the triangle and saw some cool shipwrecks. We loved the rum swizzle which was the popular Bermuda drink and we appreciated the British influence on the island because we were able to find chicken tikka masala at bars!

Here are some pics from the Bermuda cruise:

 

In December, Aditya and I took a cruise from NYC (we love NYC!!!) and it went to Florida beaches and the Bahamas. It was my ninth time at Nassau so by now we know where to go – Cable beach!

Here are some pics from the Florida & Bahamas cruise:

 

In February I planned a trip to at Atlanta to bring Aditya on a birthday vacation. We had authentic southern food and checked out the aquarium. We don’t usually travel within the states that much other than going to NYC and Miami repeatedly, so it was a nice change! We explored in the daytime and got to visit our sister Lisa and bro Neil down there as well as puppy Pepper! Nights we low keyed hung out at a bar near our hotel, so we didn’t do anything too crazy. We went to a comedy club that hubbz really enjoyed called the Laughing Skull, which I went to at my good friend Becca’s bachelorette, too! We stayed at the Ritz because I spoil my husband. Also, I must mention that the southern hospitality everywhere was truly outstanding!

Here are some pics from ATL:

 

Alrighty now I caught up on my trips! Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time working, and hanging out locally in my hood or in Boston, which is only 30mins from me so we usually have a nice date night in Boston on weekends. Right now we are planning our 5 year wedding anniversary trip, so more to come soon! Until then…

The BIG 3-0 in the Big Apple!!!

So far my bday has been great, and I’m definitely milking it as my bday month! This past weekend Aditya and I went to NYC and spent a few nights exploring the city’s endless sights. We got the Millennium Hilton downtown, to get some Hilton Gold perks. We traveled by foot, Uber, lyft, and train throughout the trip. We hopped from bars, hookah lounges, Indian bars/restaurants/clubs, to speakesies. We usually try to hit up something cultured but since we just came in June and saw the Chitra Ganesh exhibit at the Rubin before boarding our anniversary cruise to Bermuda, we decided to just take it easy and be merry for the long weekend.

NYC has so much diversity in every way. Miami and NYC are my fav cities outside of Boston, but we decided on NYC this time so that we could hit up the Bhangra night at Stage48. The energy was amazing!! Another highlight was the variety of craft cocktails with Indian spices. So yummy. We went to the comedy cellar, a skyline cruise, and a cool boozy ice cream shop. Here are some pics from the weekend.

I’m looking forward to tonight and this weekend as celebrations continue!
