12 months ...12 trips...what a year that was!

2010..what a year that was! Every month we had a trip and most of it was planned just a week in advance.
The year started with a bang with our first big trip post wedding...and the choice of destination and timing were the best...Goa and my birthday. This has been our best holiday so far...sunset at Sinquerim beach will be remembered forever...and the ride all the way from Margao to Panjim and back was no less than an adventure. If you have never been to have missed a lot already...
Then came other trips like our home trip, Kerala trip et and travel were the highlights here. May was the time to go to another beach..ya I agree not really the best time to go to Om Beach @ Gokarna, but our elite gang had their own plans...We had pure fun at the beach and one of my best trips with friends would remain Gokarna...
While our parents were here we had two short trips, one to see the city of the sword of Tipu Sultan, Srirangapatna. History came alive at the different monuments there. Second was a day trip to Banerghatta zoo. After being in Bangalore for 5 years, I finally got a chance to be there. The safari was amazing. Seeing the tiger, lion, bear and white tiger at less than 5 feet from the safari van is a humbling experience.

The next big trip was to Vythiri, Wayanad in celebrate our 1st anniversary. It was the first time that we let ourselves be pampered by the comfort offered at the resort. The view of the forest from our cottage teamed with the sound of the stream flowing right next to it was heavenly. It was raining all the while and this made the experience all the more special.
We had short trips on our own, Ujjeri being the one from my office. Isa and I became very good friends thanks to this trip. Jeev had his own away day at Royal Palms and was happy to have participated in the war cry :)

Velankanni trip was more road than sight seeing or the beach. I was happy to visit the shrine though.

Finally in December we went to Pondicherry to celebrate the New Year! This was fun again, bike rides, following the map and Auroville too...

Hope 2011 has much more in store for us!!!
