We Travel...

We travel, initially, to lose ourselves;
and we travel, next, to find ourselves...
And we travel, in essence, to become
young fools again -- to slow time down
and get taken in, and
fall in love once more.
- Pico Iyer

Here's are pictures of where we expect to vacation next! Any guesses? On our way back, we expect to spend two days at London. We are also looking forward to experiencing Virgin Altantic's much talked about upper-class during our travel between Mumbai-London-Mumbai. Best of all, I am not paying for the travel (thanks Eric, if you are reading this!).

The trip is a few months away, but like always the anticipation and planning is (as much?) fun too.

You're right - anticipation is definitely part of the fun of travel! One month until I take off for England... but now your blog is making me want to go to India! Oh well, that will have to be the next trip!

Beautiful pictures, have fun planning the trip... :) BTW, I tagged you for a food meme, hope you don't mind.

It seams to be Switzerland, but if I could say so without sounds bragging, it could have been Norway:-)

Shantanu said...

@restless legs: Enjoy your trip to England, and plan one for India as well.

@winnie: It is Switzerland; more specifically, Grindelwald.

@sig: Thanks! That should keep me busy...

@rennyba: You are correct! The more I read your blog, the more I am beginning to think I need to visit Norway some time soon!
