A Sunday well spent

Since the last post a lot has happened! I have turned a year older, gave my big exam, have traveled to my family & met people who have again made me introspect what am I really running after.

Traveling indeed teaches & I have already learnt a lot last two days.So on my way back home, thanks to the delayed AI Flight, I happened to come across a defense personnel.I was lucky enough to have talked to him, as he shared his experience, his professional challenges & how it has taught him to live his life to the fullest.Hearing him, my respect for him & his profession not only grew by leaps and bounds but also made me respect mine as I saw it from his views.I would rather think it in this way that such things are not mere coincidences but small doses from the universe it would like to give us.

Right! Now before the label of this post switches to 'Philosophical me' let me continue with the Travelogue part.

Reaching home after months is simply so beautiful & specially when the coming Sunday has been planned by moma! :)

So here we were through the beautiful country-side of Udaipur, the city of lakes as it is popularly known as with its rich Rajputana history which gives it the royal touch. Add to it the the clouds weaving their magic in this amazing weather as it turned the complete place into nothing less than a hill station as we discovered.

We started on our way to Kumbhalgargh & the route itself had some worth-stopping-your-car & running off to trek scenic places like this one :

Yes! I know far away from the office/routines & blah blah, straight to the nature's lap.

As we reached the Kumbhalgarh fort, another surprise awaited us.The clouds! Forget about trying to get a view of the 36 Kms long fort wall, the place is famous of.(It is supposed to be the longest wall in the world after the China wall! ) All we could manage was a wall infront as the visibility had reduced to its minimum but I wouldn't complain.It is not everyday you get to walk amidst the clouds that too just a few hours drive away from home! :D

By evening we started back towards the city & with still good time left with us & mood & spirits all freshened up even after the complete day's trekking, courtesy the weather gods, we turned towards Sajjangarh, or as it is better known as The hilltop Monsoon Palace which as can be seen gave a wonderful aerial view of the city, its lakes full with water & the mountains under the green velvet around it.

Trying to focus on the lake palace in the Lake Pichola for sis!
