Touring castles in Germany

There are so many castles in Germany.

SO. MANY.

One of the more popular (read: Instagrammable) ones is actually one of the newest – Schloss Neuschwanstein near Füßen (read: Few-sen). This “Disney castle” is set high atop a rocky mount along the southern border of Germany, about a 2-3 hour train ride south through gorgeous countryside from the Hauptbahnhof (main train station) in Munich, depending on if you have to make a transfer or not. read more…

Useful German phrases to know (before traveling to Germany)

If there is one thing you need to know about me, it’s that I’m a bit obsessed with language. I spent my college years working towards a degree in English and a minor in Linguistics, so my days were filled with words. It was blissful.

So, when Sohrab and I decided a while back that we wanted to take a trip to Germany, I knew that I’d need to brush up on (read: learn!) some German. read more…

Let the adventure continue

We’ve been married for two years today.

Time FLIES!

It’s been a wild ride already – and we’re still just at the start! Marriage is somehow so different than engagement or before – so even though we have been together for 8 years, this new beginning has been wonderful. I couldn’t imagine a better life partner – and let’s get real for a second here. I’m so lucky to have found someone like Sohrab at all, let alone so early in my life. The Carl to my Ellie. The Sam to my Quorra. Gush, gush, gush. read more…

I’m an INFP-T, find out what it means to me

Wine by the fireplace

Life is messy. I think about this often during the alone time that I require as an unashamed introvert. I inherited much from my mother — the perfectionism, the messy office, the introversion. My dad and sister are exactly the opposite when it comes to being around people. They thrive in a crowd. Mom and I shrink to the sidelines, burying ourselves in our work. read more…

“Purple Rane” – My Multi-Colored Hair Adventures

Purple Hair Dye

Yesterday, I finally did something that I have been wanting to do for a long time.

I’ve scrolled through Pinterest for many hours, favoriting purple-haired pins left and right. I went through so many iterations of what I wanted: Did I want purple hair? Another color? No. Of course I want purple. And yet, I only dreamt of being so cool – so edgy – that I could walk confidently into my salon and request lavender locks. read more…

Eid Mubarak

Sakura Flower Bicycle

I like to think of dates as opportunities to start anew. January 1st. My birthday. The first day of Spring.

Today is not just the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere.

Today is Eid: the Persian New Year. Traditionally celebrated at the very minute the Spring Equinox occurs (in today’s case, at 3:28 AM PST), my family opted to get together for an Eid dinner. There’s something about 3:30 in the morning that just doesn’t quite inspire celebration. read more…
