Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays

So yeah – I told you about my JOURNEY to my parents home. We didn’t get to the actual trip! What can I say about home? My parents live in the middle of nowhere so its absolutely relaxing! We watched movies, my mom chased me around with food, we went to meet family friends, we watched more movies, I looked through a lot of old family photos and found some treasures!

When I was in high school my parents decided (well, “decided” because my dad got a new job) to move to like the most useless town in the whole world. Dakota Dunes, SD. We were in Michigan before. Some might think that’s comparably boring. Actually they think its cold but its the same temp as NYC. Michigan has a lot of pine trees.

Anyways, Dakota Dunes. Its right on the highway of Sioux City, Iowa. If you google Dakota Dunes, nothing may show up. My dad is retired now but they stayed in the town because… I’ll show you pics of their neighborhood and if you are old & retired, this is the life you appreciate and you don’t care that you have no real city anywhere close by. Who cares when you can grow a whole garden in your front and back yard – flowers in the front, tomatoes & eggplant in the back! Even some Indian peppers! My dad is quite the gardener and my mom is quite the cook. In fact, my parents even make their own acchar (Indian pickle) in our back yard in the summer time! (you are supposed to dry the lemon/limes/mango in the sun for like 2 weeks or something). To me though, the slow life drives me crazy!! WALK FASTER HOMIE!!!

That’s all that I can really say about the Pindh (that’s what we call it. Pindh means “village/farm”) I will admit the neighborhood is pretty, clean, spectacular homes. I have an interest in modern architecture and design, so I enjoy going for walks/drives and looking at the new developments; but I don’t know what these people do to pass their time. I guess everyone is different! The rest of this post will be pictorial. Because you have never seen South Dakota before and you’re curious. As I said, I do love design and architecture, so hopefully some of you will as well and enjoy these different style homes! Enjoy the pindh:

This house is being built with an elevator. Laziness at its best! I guess if you are old and have money to burn on useless things, more power to ya!

About kbahri114

Hi! I'm a luxury lifestyle blogger from New York City. I have Indian roots - to get into that further, I grew up in a Punjabi home and was raised with Hindu traditions in America. I am extremely in touch with my culture thankfully, which is why I have a great appreciation towards all cultures of the world! We have been blessed with the gift of life on the planet earth. When I'm 90 years old lying on my death bed looking back at my life, I want to make sure I took full advantage of this beautiful life I was blessed with. I want to explore as much of this amazing world we live in and live life to the fullest! I knew traveling was something I had to start doing and will continue to do. I've always been intrigued by the world and different cultures. I have always wanted to explore and see as much of the world as I can! Life is all about experiences, meeting people, learning new ways and concepts and taking risks. This blog is meant to be fun & entertaining but it also provides my personal experiences and what you might expect to discover while traveling. It also will include fashion and beauty posts as well as random thoughts and stories, since a kaleidoscope is meant to be a colorfully shaken mix of entertainment! I hope you find my blog interesting, fun, funny & informative, but most of all entertaining!!
