Snapshots of my trip to India 2013


After a very eventful past month in India, I'm back to the grind. It feels good in a bittersweet sort of way. I'm looking forward to getting back to my usual and familiar routine of home-husband-work-friends-blog!

This post is just to share some pictures with you that I took on my recent holiday. I was mainly flitting between cities within my home state of Karnataka, starting with Bangalore and then heading off to Udupi, Manipal, Mangalore, Shimoga and then to Mysore along with a very brief visit to the neighboring state of Kerala.

The pictures you will see begin with a wedding in Udupi and move on from there to the beaches of Dakshina Kannada, some scenic spots in North Kerala and finally the Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary and Venugopalaswamy temple near my beloved Mysore.

A special word of thanks to my lil brother Samarth (those interested can check out his amazing photography at his Facebook page here) and my husband for taking some of the lovely photos in this post.

I hope you enjoy the pics!

The last photo is one that is most special to me and one of the highlights of my visit to Mysore - my best four-legged friend and faithful companion for the past 12 years, my dear dog Polo. He is an old fella now but my love for him has only grown with time.

Thinking of you fondly Polo  ❤
