Its noon time,

its siesta time,

lunch over,

the sun hovers,

the tired legs,

need some rest,

the grass beckons,

the sleeping bag too i reckon…

    I wanna fast forward Yuvaan so that he grows up soon and I can go to these fab places with help from you. As it is my wife isn’t interested in such lazy places.

    Alas… I gotta wait for 8 to 10 years. (Or maybe take a boys vacation with my brother and friends?)

    HW : you know i keep telling my son to grow up and take the responsibility of earning… !! but that is still far off… thats why i have forced my wife to work and start a business related to travel… hopefully she can make it big and i can quit my job and join !!!!!

    fingers crossed !! 🙂

    • Rakesh says:

      Not growing up and earning 🙂

    ME first me first. Just wanted to say that. 😀 😀

    Oh! I love camping. I am waiting for Peanut to grow a bit more so that she enjoys too. She has no problems even now but still as a parent you have to be more attentive at this age.

    HW : you havent camped ever ??? its the best thing and the most fun thing to do… !! why agle janam… just plan a trip to the north… we have camps in many places… I can help !!! and we do it for … errr… ummmm well older folks tooo !!! 😀

    **ducks the chappal thrown**

    • Sandhya says:

      I don’t lie about my age…so no need for you to duck. I might do it for other reasons, though!!

      I remembered about my Amarnath trip, now. It was a very thrilling trip. We slept in makeshift camps with just a woolen blanket on rocky floors. Went on horseback (I really did, for more than 2 hours at a stretch and felt that I had been doing it all my life!). I wrote a blog too about it but it is funny to read now, though…so new to writing. But I will never forget that trip.

      Thanks for the suggestion, I might take it one day, Dhiren.

      HW : lol… I know you dont lie… !! i dont either !!! 😉

      you must do it… and if you need any assistance I would be glad to help !!! 🙂 😀 🙂
