Washington Harbour Ice Rink
This holiday season, where do you go for ice skating if you’re in DC area? That was my question a few weeks back and found that the Washington Harbour Ice Rink is the place to go which is considered DC’s largest outdoor ice skating rink. At 11,800 square feet it’s actually bigger than New York’s Rockefeller Center rink. Apart from being a world-class ballerina, another dream of mine when I w

Things To Do in Washington DC: Visit One of The Iconic Buildings of the City, The Capitol Hill

November 26, 2014
Capitol Hill
From afar, we can already see the beauty of Capitol Hill. It looked so close to us from where we were having beer because of its massive size but then when we looked at our map, it would take us about 30 minutes by foot to get there.

Being only 45-min away, Great Falls in Maryland and Virginia is a great day out from Washington DC. The only downside is, Great Falls is not at all near to any public transportation routes so you really have to have your own car to get there. It is absolutely worth it though. My sister who is very familiar with the place took us to the Great Falls’ Maryland side. There’s an entrance fee of USD5 per ve

One Fine Autumn Day in DC

November 15, 2014
Georgetown, DC
It was a cold when we arrived DC at exactly 8:45 in the morning. My sister dropped me off near the Dupont Circle and she went straight to work while I headed towards the Embassy of Qatar to get my certified marriage certificate. Finally, I am sending that very important document over to the husband in Doha. That’s one task lifted off my shoulder. I had nowhere to go afterwards so I decided to take my time and

Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History
The Smithsonian, consisting of 19 museums and galleries, the National Zoological Park, and nine research facilities is considered the world’s largest museum and research complex. To visit one museum alone, you will spend a minimum of 2 hours. Of course it will be more if you’re planning to be very thorough during your visit. Since we have very limited time, we decided to just visit the National Museum o
