Holidays


Every place I go, I like as never before
    The new people n food is happiness galore

Every sight is a delight, no words can describe

  It is a shame how quickly the time flies!

Watch historical site or a bumpy bus ride
    
    Follow nature trail or a swaying boat ride

What a welcome relief after days of toil
   
   Drudgery n burning oil at midnight!

The pictures and souvenirs stay in memories
    
    Reminder of the indulgence fun n delight

  35. It is indeed a welcome relief. The childish enthusiasm is always at a high during the time we get to visit new places and once we start exploring the place, we become one among the local people and wish we could stay on. And it would be a nice break from the routine too :-)

  43. Lovely post, Rahul. I used to fly with Air India so travel, to me, is work. I still like travelling but hate the packing, the documentation, securing our home etc. That didn't make me popular with the rest of my family but now the kids can (and do) travel on their own and I try and indulge my hubby's travel bug sometimes.

  45. That image is beautiful an the image you paint with your words is so appealing.;) We are entering a dark, cold, long winter, thus the idea of a holiday somewhere warm sounds truly dreamy.;)
