… and a tad overwhelmed with all that has to be done at home and at work, but are loving it! 🙂
Last week, we crossed off one of the big items on our bucket lists – a trip to Kashmir. Both the OH and I had always wanted to see Kashmir, but never got around to it. It was one of those things that we kept saying we will do ‘someday’, but never did. Till, some time back, we decided that we are going to do this, this time around, no matter what. And we did. Yay to that! 🙂
The Kashmir experience was, overall, good, with loads of new experiences. We are excited that we finally fulfilled one of our dreams, but are also a tad disillusioned with the difference between the pristine, untarnished image of Kashmir that we had in our minds and the extremely touristy, commercial Kashmir that we just returned from.
We couldn’t visit the whole of Kashmir this time – we just went to Srinagar, Sonamarg, Pahalgam and Gulmarg. Another trip has to be made to cover the other interesting places that we left out – Leh, Ladakh, Katra, Kargil and the likes.
There are a lot of travel tales to tell, and a lot of pictures to share. I will be back with the stories once I get my head a little bit above all the chores that need to be finished.
Hope you all have been doing great! I need to get back to reading all the posts on your blogs that I have missed out on too. 🙂
