Planning our Luxuriously Frugal Guam Trip

Posted by on Aug 18, 2017 in Travel

We planned our trip to Guam way ahead of our planned dates. I wanted to use my US Visa and at that time, I wasn’t expecting to go to mainland US anytime soon.

Nevertheless, we planned Guam with the intention of staying at the...

Posted by on Jun 24, 2015 in Nepal, Sports, Travel

    I’m pretty sure every human being in this world would wonder how it feels to fly. To be momentarily suspended on air, your feet of the ground and you float for more than 5 seconds.
