We started our celebration 3 days back, with our jaunt to “Orange County Coorg”.
Filled with Coffee plantation all around you, spreading acres and acres away with thousands of Rain insects making its melodious noise welcoming you, was such a break away from the city life we have. I wanted more and more of the FEEL of the place, which was just LUSH GREEN and GREEN. I was trying to fill my eyes and ears with the GREEN and untainted fresh air, every sec troubling my hubby as to how much am loving the place. Added to the gorgeousness (the word doesn’t justify yet); we were treated like Kind & Queen in the much praised about resort. This place boast of being totally eco-friendly and by the end of 3 days, I swear this is a must visit to all you people there, to experience something matchless - HOME away from Home!
Apart from the after said picturesque; we totally enjoyed the FOREST TREK; which is again a rare chance since not everywhere we get to trek in a forest!
Myself and H were just transformed into a different world and education, as we walked deep into the forest, sight so feral; the silence giving way to explore more…
I jumped at the sight of a Sandal wood tree which is 10 yr old. We got to know it takes 100 yrs for a Sandalwood tree to completely grow.
Also, two different kinds of creepers, which swirls around the tree. One which helps in growth of the tree and the other which kills the tree. The sight was so wonderful.
We checked the rosewood tree, which was still 40yr old (It takes 100 yrs too to grow); we saw poisonous mushrooms; ant hill (mind u, its different in forest)……H was saddened since he was not able to spot wild elephants, which was a possibility there! Poor baby!
Our fatigue was washed away, when we reached the banks of Cauvery River; which was a stop point for our trek. Bliss!!
Rest of the spirit tender points was the Kodava dance and in turn we danced, trying to match the complicated steps…boating in Rain was so romantic….cappuccino in the coffee lounge….pool side villa and its stories…..walk inside the Plantation…
Calls for MORE VACATION!!!!
The world is so beautiful, we just need to go and ExPlOrE!!
Today was just home and a light Lunch with family, No office and just a lazy evening…. Nice way to conclude, I can still feel the Green & fresh air around me, its hugged so firm will not get away from the nostalgic for a long time…
Rain Insect, which was the only melody in the midst of Silence
Finally...Happy anniversary sweetheart!
