Mid-July, Snubnose and I took a short weekend break with my work friends to Coorg. True, it is right in the middle of the monsoon, and we fully expected our trip to be a washout. However, though it rained off and on, the weather was overall very pleasant, and we ended up having a great time.

This time, we spent a lot of time in Coorg proper (Madikeri) and nearby places. We stayed at the Coorg Heights resort, which is a nice resort up slope, with sweeping views of the hills and valleys around.

As a family, we love to vacation in South-East Asia. What’s not to like? Most of the places are kid-friendly (yes, we found family friendly things to do even in notorious Pattaya), cheap, and easy to get to from Bangalore.

This year, as we again begin our travel planning for the annual holiday in December, my eyes wander off to the right-hand side of the map we have on hand, and for some reason Phillippines is beckoning to me.
