Cruise travel Pt. 2: The Hermit of Alaska

Yesterday night when I heard we were stopping at a place in Alaska for a few hours, I didn’t really care. Frankly speaking, I thought Alaska was a dull place where nothing happens and where no one lives. A few hours after the cruise docked at Juneau, Alaska, the ship was virtually uninhabited. Everyone had... Continue Reading →

Cruise travel Pt. 1: Excitement of Arrival

“We’re here!” I thought, after entering the Port, but we weren’t; more luggage-checking, and stimulating security officers who stare at large, black screens, scratching their noses and pretending they know what they’re doing. “Ok, now we’re really here!” A steward guided us to the entry and we stepped foot on the cruise, the magical moment...

World Cup FINAL Preview

Smallest Country to potentially win WC vs. Three-time Finalists Alright, Its the World Cup final. Woohoo! Actually no, it's interesting how sad I am even though the World Cup final is tomorrow.

My Round of 16 predictions

Last-minute clinchers vs French U-23 national team The youngest team at this World Cup, France who sport prodigies like Dembele, Fekir, Pogba, and Mbappé will face off against Argentina. It is important to note how "clutchly" Argentina got here. After getting destroyed by Croatia and tying to Iceland, they did, however, put up an impressive performance against the Nigerians and were fortunate that Iceland didn't beat Croatia which would have surely eliminated them. It will be close, but "Messigican" will spearhead his side past France's youthful nimbleness, who drew to Denmark and only beat Peru and Australia by a goal each. Argentina will win.
