Destination Niagara Falls

A name given to a group of three waterfalls, the Niagara Falls runs along the international border between the United States and Canada. The largest, most beautiful, most featured, and most visited of the three waterfalls is the Horseshoe Falls. If you want to enjoy a full view of this natural wonder, you need to journey to Canada, which we did. The other two of the waterfalls, the American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls, lie within the United States.

Visiting Manila and Los Banos

The Philippines is a diversified island country consisting of some 7,000 islands and islets. Interestingly, the Philippines takes its name from Philip II, who was King of Spain during the Spanish colonisation of the islands in the 16th century. It is one of only two predominantly Roman Catholic countries in Asia, the other being East Timor. The country has always been one of my favourite destinations.

Dancing in the storm

In the wake of a looming political and economic storm in Sri Lanka, I took a train to the country’s cultural Kandy, with the intention to learn its popular traditional dance form called Ves Natum. This quest for the silver lining landed me in Amunugama, an ancient village named after the celebrated family of dancers and drummers who once performed at the courts of the Kandyan kings.

Over the Padma, by the bridge of dreams!

Besides providing faster internet, boosting the economy, and bringing the country closer by providing a vital link in the national road network of Bangladesh, the Padma Bridge is a source of immense pride, as well as relief, for multitudes. Having said that, along with thousands of other people, my friends and I took it upon ourselves to visit the new historic benchmark created by the country. Starting our journey at six in the morning from Uttara, in a half-zombie state, I began recording our anticipation on my GoPro.
