Hey Jude: #WordlessWednesday

Walk with The Ellies: #WordlessWednesday

Walk with The Ellies: #WordlessWednesday

Wildlife SOS encourages its visitors to volunteer for its rescued elephants and Indian bears. We spent two very memorable days bathing the elephants, feeding them, watching them engage in their daily rituals. Some of the stories of the rescued elephants and bears brought tears to our eyes.  There was the over obese Laxmi, the elephant who…

Couple Goals: #WordlessWednesday

Couple Goals: #WordlessWednesday

    Couple Goals 26th June, 2016 Chanced upon this couple from Rajasthan, on our trek from McLeod Ganj to Bhagsunag falls. I have no idea what the fascinating instrument that the man played is called. The rendition was a piece of pure bliss, that resonated synchronously with the crisp mountain air.  This picture opened the floodgates of my memory today, and took me back to an enchanting time I had with my older daughter. Trudging uphill to the Bhagsugnag falls,…

A Journey of Memorable Smiles: #WordlessWednesday

A Journey of Memorable Smiles: #WordlessWednesday

  A Journey of memorable smiles April 11, 2016 Sorry folks, but this is not a high quality shot, but the memories around it are truly treasured and precious. It was taken on an iPhone, like most of my pictures are.  I was using an older version of iPhone, with a not very high-grade camera.  My older daughter captured this moment from our surreal boat ride, on the majestic Vembanad lake, Komarakom, Kerela. The Vembanad lake looks more like a…

Solo & Susegard

Solo & Susegard

I’m currently relaxing in Goa and experiencing a sense of “susegard” which in Portuguese translates to being relaxed, contented and in a state of bliss when one chills by the seaside.

This is my first solo trip, though for just a day.

When in God’s Own Country: Part 2

When in God’s Own Country: Part 2

Kerela was proving to be more mystical, more magical than anticipated. We were enamoured by the riot of colours, the lush, verdant nature, the innumerable species of birds and insects, and the fresh crispy air that we inhaled. The DH and I love waking up early even on vacations. We feel the beauty of these pristine places can be savoured and experienced while everybody else sleeps. We love to go for our morning run or walk and unfailingly pack our…

When in God’s Own Country: Part 1

It was that time of the year when the sweetness of the spring was merging with the balmy summer. The board exams were done and dusted with. It was time to take off on a long cherished vacation and what better place than Kerela, God’s Own Country in South India. My dream destination for many years now. We landed at Kochi (Cochin) well in time to head for Kumarakom, a sleepy, serene town in the backwaters of Kerela. It was…
