In Love With Coorg

Yet another experience to reinforce my belief that exciting things happen to me when I least expect them. A sudden churn of events left me to spend the weekend with hubby, Sweety, Mom, and Dad. While I was wondering how to spend my most valuable free time, hubby suggested that we make a trip to Coorg. I was excited, but the inner voice calmed down my enthu, claiming that I might end up feeling disappointed.

Afterall, how could we plan for such a long drive in just a day’s notice – that too while travelling with an infant?

What happened in the next couple of days took me by awe and thrill. Yes, we finally made it to this beautiful place on Friday.  We spent two days in a home stay, thus ensuring only home-made food for us and for the baby. She too was excited to have come out of the cocoon.

The serenity, the hilly terrain, the sounds of the waterfall, the greenery – these are the things that a camera can never capture. The comfort in being with your loved ones, being cared for, the memories that we created have a permanent place in our minds. I find myself drifting with the hill breeze while typing this. So engrossed were we with the beauty that before we realized it, we were heading back home.

Dedicating this article to my beloved hubby, Mom, and Dad for making this happen. You know how much it means to me to take a break from my routine, and step out of the house for a while.

A few pics from the trip:

    1. Thanks, Maddy. Whenever I write an article, I look forward to your comments. Coorg is a nice place, and there are more beautiful places in Karnataka. And ya, I have lost a few kilos - a normal process after having a kid.
