Road Trips and Bridges

Last summer, my siblings and I went on a trip to Pakistan’s northern areas (Gilgit, Baltistan).

The natural beauty we spotted took away our breath each time. Since the roads have been constructed by cutting down huge mountains and rocks – most of the rides were bumpy but nevertheless, extremely fun.

We spotted several bridges along the way and keeping this week’s challenge in mind, I decided to share a few of them with you.

I always prefer road trips over airplane flights; because to me experiencing nature, all kinds of rides and even road troubles – is all part of the adventure.

Little chirping sounds took me outside of the house early morning. Sitting peacefully on an Epipremnum aureum (money plant), I discovered a perfectly built nest with recently hatched baby birds.

Usually it takes around 10 days for the birds to flee their nest, which means this is just the beginning of their journey; where ever it may be.

Best of luck little birdies. The world awaits you.

Cloudy With A Hope for Joy

For the past few days, Karachi sky more often than not is covered with thick and dark clouds. Everyone is anxiously waiting for the arrival of rain which seems content in keeping the Karachiites in humid air for now.

Karachi Sky at 1700 hours

Every few hours, the skies clear; leaving no sign of clouds at all. Just like everything else in life, the weather too is continuously changing.
