Distraction

I’m sorry about not posting for so long even after having said that I will. Life happens and I cannot stop it. However, I have something else for you on my travel blog.

If you are interested in reading about some tips for travelling with children, you are welcome to read my recent update on my travel blog: Tips for air travel with kids

That should keep you occupied, while I finish the draft that I had originally planned to post here.

Getting back

I have had to suppress the urge to blog for all of the 6 weeks I was traveling, availability of internet not being an issue. In truth, I didn’t want to do a short version of what I wanted to say. Meaning, I didn’t have much time to express all that I felt and wanted to share here. I just got back from a long trip to Singapore and India. Now that I don’t have places to be and people to meet, I feel relaxed enough to open the chest of memories and thoughts.

It was a wonderful trip back to what was once home. It did overwhelm and throw me off a bit, even though I anticipated the reverse culture shock. The sights, smells and noises kept distracting me all the time. Family, as much as I love them, smothered us with attention. In a good way.

Singapore was pretty awesome and a lot of posts are in order on my travel blog. So keep an eye out.

There are tons of things I want to write about, but they won’t be in this post. This is to just let myself out and breathe and get into the right frame of mind to start forming coherent sentences out of the jumbled mess of thoughts. As exhausted as I am, this is the right time to start digging the mind to relive the experience, lest it should get hazy with time.

I leave you here, with a promise to be back with more interesting things than a random post like this.

Mt Donna Buang – our first snow as a family

My Treks and Travels

This is my first travel update from Australia and I’m excited to be writing again about travel. It is nothing huge but might give some information to (new?) local Melbournites who want to enjoy the winter and go out.

I was giddy with anticipation as I was seeing snow after a long time (last time it was in 2012). It might also have been the fact that I haven’t gone out in a long time as well. Melbourne winter makes it tough to even think of going out. That and my laziness.

We reached there around 2pm. The road was nice and clear of any ice or snow, thanks to the grader that had gone through sometime earlier. As the snow started appearing on roadsides, I was giddy all over again. And once there was snow all around us, it looked like we were driving through a wonderland. The first thing that…
