Pawna Lakeside Camping (Day 2)

Next morning I could wake before the birds chirped. It was gloomy and fog lay on the banks. I was trying to figure out east while reminding me where the sun set to the west. The boys were still sleeping and my eyes was wide awake wanting to soak in more of this beauty. After the sun rose and my son rose... We all did a group hug and headed to the play area. H made few friends and we had poha, chai and bread muskah for breakfast. The Resort people were kind enough to serve warm milk for my son.

H was keen in exploring the place more. He showed me some red chilly plants, a sugarcane grass and few grasshoppers over a Chikoo tree. We spotted a green cocoon.

Today was the day to leave. Its very tough for my son to accept end of any event, be it school or visit to his Nani's place or park. We as a family are trying to make him understand the importance of each moment of life. To take Life as it is and come what may. I know some part of me has come in him, which is why I can understand …

Pawna lakeside camping (Day 1)

Homeschool experience for our kid led us to understand the importance of small meaningful trips in the wild. We had been staying in a tent that had attached bathroom in the midst of a dessert during our Rajasthan trip but this one was such a raw experience.

We were done with our morning routine and headed to lonavala at around 11. Listening to old songs that i love chorusing along, we reached Kailash Parbat for a lunch hault. H enjoyed homemade puranpoli that his granny made.

The weather was cold enough and H was happy to find a baby next table to play with. From here our journey was full of rough roads and yet we enjoyed looking at the scenes it had to offer.

Time was not a constraint. We could stop and ponder and repeat till the end of our curiosity. It was our motive to …

A Quick getaway, Dahanu

My husband was exhausted mentally and physically, which is why he badly needed a break from the chaotic work life. We sat down one night at the movie theatre waiting for the show to start. The movie was about to exit the theaters and we didn't want to miss this one. It was a sudden plan and that night was full of surprising decisions.

We surfed the travel apps and in just 10 minutes booked our weekend getaway to Dahanu, a small village near the sea shores of Maharashtra. A 3hr drive from Mumbai, smooth roads, few tolls and lovely scenes to relax your mind.

Morning started with a visit to Kaman tirth on the way and we had our breakfast there.
It took us a hour and a half to reach our hotel which was just opposite the beach. We relaxed and ate lunch, binge watch Netflix in the room. My son was so happy to play in the balcony that he almost skipped his nap.

We went to the beach in the evening and had a gala time playing in the sand, horse cart riding, sipping gola and eating hot bha…
