Hey everyone!

Hope you guys are doing great! I’m finally back on WordPress after a 3 week hiatus and I really missed you guys! ❀ I just came back from vacation and am fatigued with dizziness and jet lag so will probably be a bit slow in catching up with blog posts. So I told you guys that I will let you know my vacation spot after returning home to keep it as a suspense. I visited Madrid & Barcelona, Spain for about 4 days and then went to South India for about 2 weeks to visit my grandparents.

Overall, I definitely did have a good trip but I did experience a few disappointments here and there. It was a hectic trip since I went to 4 different cities, changed about 7 hotels, and travelled on 9 flights lol! Definitely there were struggles involved but had a fun and memorable time. Madrid was my favorite and the city was just amazing, filled with incredible architecture engraved on buildings. Barcelona was also such a beautiful city and I got to visit some of the major attractions such as the Park Guell and the Sagrada Familia.

There was an incident that really disappointed me. As I was sitting in the cafe drinking coffee at 2pm in the afternoon, I hung my huge floral handbag on the side of my chair. I’ve been checking it every 2 minutes and in a flash of a second, some thief just stole my whole handbag which had some money and my brand new iPhone! I was in shock and wasn’t able to find out the person who stole my bag. I tried contacting the police and took several hours to claim a report but the police men were of no help 😦 It took a few days to realize that my bag was actually gone and felt pretty naked without my phone and wallet. There was nothing that I could’ve done and just borrowed my dad’s phone for the rest of the trip. Since I lost my phone, I’m sorry I wasn’t able to read and catch up with all of your blog posts. I somehow was able to download the Instagram app so was pretty happy and I was able to keep in touch with most of you on there πŸ™‚ Other than that, I really did enjoy the city so if you haven’t visited Spain, this a place on your bucket list for next time πŸ™‚

I travelled to the city of Chennai and Bangalore in South India. The city was suffocated by pollution and a heat of a 105 degrees F so did some shopping and stayed in the hotel most of the time. I got to spend a good amount of time with my grandparents and it was totally a nice experience! So yeah, that was my trip and now back home in DC, sleeping all day due to jet lag. My next or a few posts later will probably be about my travel experience to Spain so will try to post some enjoyable pictures of my trip! I’ve got to say but it definitely feels good to be back home! πŸ™‚

I also would like to mention that I can’t believe I reached 300 followers for Beyoutiful!! I’m currently on 330 followers and 1,370 total likes and as always, you are guys are incredibly amazing and thank you all of your support and care ❀ I really appreciate the heart warming encouragement from you all! Shoutout to my new followers as well and would like to really get to know more of you all. So, please feel free to read my Q&A blog posts and ask me any questions to get to know me as a blogger more πŸ™‚

I’m still on summer vacation but will be starting my next course in my Masters program in July so I have a month to just relax and prepare. I’m gonna try to catch up on all of your blog posts before I post my next one!

Until then,

xoxo,

  3. Well done you! You see how the numbers grow. I am so sorry to hear about the fact that your bag was stolen in Barcelona. The thing is that it is notorious for such incidents. The whole time I was in Barcelona, I stuck my backpack in front of me and did not let it out of sight for even a second. It must have been awful. Hugs. Madrid is less prone to it but even there I carried on with the bag-in-the-front trick. The good thing is you are back home and you can get back to routine which is comforting.

      Aw thanks girl and you’re too kind! Ugh yeah I totally should’ve kept it in front me…just didn’t realize it. But I did buy a new handbag which I can carry it in the front which is so much easier lol. Its totally fine, it happens and yes, its so good to be back home again! πŸ™‚

      1. Nothing like home to put a comforting hand on your head. Such incidents are in my books a life lesson. So no harm done except that you would want to club the stealer πŸ˜› Next time in Barcelona … xx

  9. Welcome back! Sounds like a great holiday. Sorry to hear abt the handbag incident though. I was warned of the same before going to Italy and held on to mine for dear life! Lol … But hey, I bet being without a phone made the holiday a lot more exciting. Sometimes I feel we get so carried away taking pics that we forget to enjoy the moment. ❀️

      Aw no worries and glad you help on to yours! Yeah was checking mine every 5 minutes but got stolen in a blink of an eye but yes haha! Totally agree with you! Def was enjoying the rest of the trip without my handbag! So much easier without having to worry about anything haha..sometimes the phone is just so distracting lol. But yeah, lesson learned and def had a good trip even if my phone got stolen πŸ™‚

      Aw no worries girl! I was really aware of my belongings but I guess these things happened and def learned my lesson. So glad I had my pics backed up on iCloud πŸ™‚ Thank you so much (actually at 400 currently lol)! Just feel honored to have so many amazing bloggers appreciate my work πŸ™‚ You guys are all such an inspiration ❀

      1. Yeah, things happen.. I’m going on a trip soon and I really can’t afford something like that to happen to me right now! iCloud can be such a lifesaver! Reminds me that I need to clear my iCloud up so I can back things up on my trip, haha.
        Oh my gosh! That’s awesome!! I’m nowhere near 400! Good going, girl! πŸ™‚ ❀

        Yes you def should! Make sure your iCloud is turned on so it automatically backs up the pics and also def activate Find my iPhone (which I didnt and had a hard time)…would be really useful πŸ™‚ Haha thanks girlie ❀ I'm sure you will get there soon πŸ™‚ Have fun on your trip!!
