Weekend Getaways from Bangalore


No matter how serious life gets, you just need a good weekend to calm the hustle inside you.

Just for 2 days, shut down your laptops as well as your work lives and get into a whole new experience of life. Leave your world behind and go away to a place, unknown and undiscovered by you. India is rich in its diverse cultures and religions. Adhering to and following a single culture is too mainstream. Come on! Take that vacation book out and fill it with new experiences, cultures and explorations.

Coorg Weekend Getaway


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.

Coorg- A Photo Essay


In some ways, our trip to Coorg was a rainy mess, but we still managed to have a great time. The rains made the place look so beautifully green and we ended up taking tons of pictures. We did have to be a bit careful because we didn’t want the rain to get into the camera. In spite of it, quite a few photos ended up with a bit too many raindrops 🙁 .

The best parts were the awesome energy by everyone in the group, the 2 kids managing to have a whale of a time together, the non-stop games of Ass in the bus. All in all, a great weekend!
