The Super 8 tag

The better half is out touring since Sunday, there’s loads to do at work and at home, I am tired and sleep- and fun-deprived, and lonely and SUPER-BUGGED. 😦  All I want to do is crib. Instead, I take up this Super 8 tag from Rambler’s blog.

    The wish list has to be there! πŸ™‚

    I am planning to visit Kashmir as well. I read an article in Travel magazine that packages from Shakti in Ladakh are pretty awesome. May be a bit expensive.

    I stayed at a resort in Munnar called Deshadun, a beach resort in Kumarakom, and stayed in the house boat too. If you ask me Munnar is a really nice place to just relax. IMHO beach resort and house boats are way hyped up.

  4. Lovely Period!

    do take it up.. its one stress buster for sure πŸ™‚

  11. That confirms my fears: There is not a good place to eat in Bangalore! The food here is hopeless, save a couple of restaurants like MTR etc, and even if it is slightly good, it is so costly! For a person who would go to Mylapore (which would include a travel of 8 kilo meters) just to eat some great food, this place is Arrrrrg!!

    Destination Infinity
