Kodaikanal was awesome ! We had a relaxing trip away from all our worries and stress. We lived through 3 days in complete bliss.

Took a train to Kodai road on 22nd night and reached on 23rd morning. From there we went to the hotel, Kodai International through a taxi. On the way we stopped by from some hot coffee. Also saw 2 waterfalls on the wayΒ  (though there was no water) and tasted local fruits. Reached the resort at 9.30 Am and had bath and buffet breakfast. Soon after that we drove to the lake and enjoyed pedal boating. The boat had a mickey mouse seat for the kids and Aryan totally loved it. After boating we had kodai special masala tea outside the boat house and that was very refreshing.

It was followed by cycling and horse riding. The weather was sunny but chilly. Anupam thanked his wife for carrying wollens inspite of the weather forcast on various websites πŸ™‚Β  Cycling brought back childhood memories and we rode through the entire round of lake , with break for ice cream and corn πŸ™‚ I totally loved the colour of the sky and the effect it had on the colour of the water, the lotus in the lake and the weather in general. Aryan got so excited that he literally started dancing by the side of the lake without any music πŸ™‚

After all the fun we hunted for Astoria , a south indian restaurant recommended by the localites. The place was just awesome. The food was absolutely yummicious !!! We loved it so much that we ate 1 meal per day there for all the 3 days πŸ˜€ Aryan slept in my lap soon after food and so we headed to hotel. Sat in the balcony and enjoyed the sun while Aryan slept.

The next day (on 24th), we chilled out in the garden at the resort. Aryan was bit uneasy and wanted to sleep again after breakfast , so we let him for an hour or so.Then we decided to again go for the same stuff as we have not had enough of that. So this time we headed for shikara ride , followed by cycling all over again πŸ˜€

At night, I decided to celebrate Anupam’s birthday on its eve itself , since Aryan cannot be a part of celebrations at midnight and we had to checkout in the morning. So while Anupam went to speak at the travel desk , we closed the room and decorated the table , with some roses , a candle , sponge cake , some wine and a hand made card by Aryan and his mom πŸ™‚ Anupam did not have a hint of it and was pleasantly surprised. What surprised him most was that I carried most of that from Bangalore without him noticing πŸ™‚

On 25th Morning , we checked out after breakfast for sight seeing. There is nothing much to see in kodaikanal except some valley views and most of that was not seen due to fog. At night we had a train to Bangalore from kodai road and reached here on 26th morning πŸ™‚

Only yesterday night I realized that I have to be back to the grind within few hours πŸ™‚
Over all , we had a relaxing trip and did lots of photography πŸ™‚

Leaving you with some pictures of the lake , would come back with more πŸ™‚
