An year here and off to a short break now

It has been a year since I arrived in London and boy, does it seem like ages ago. What with the move, not just the place but also the job it definitely feels like too many things have happened this year. I am on my half-term holiday break now which is great and much needed, but there are so many things to be done. On top of that, I fell ill and lost my voice for the past two days. I can kind of whisper things today without straining, but it is now at the stage where a dry cough has taken over and my sinus is slightly clogged so not a good few more days to look forward to. Among all these did I enjoy the snow? I definitely did. Not the icy patch the next day though. I almost fell a few times walking on those.

Silver lining among these events is that we are going on a short trip to Italy this Sunday and will be back just before Christmas. All our presents are ready and waiting next to our nativity set (we don’t have Christmas tree). That would also mean I will be off the grid unless I get good wifi there and am not too tired to blog. We are going to take it slow and steady with the trip, not rushing through the places etc. There will be lots of photographs for sure and a travelogue once I am back.

Y’all stay safe, hope for better things, spread the festive spirit, be safe, keep blogging, and most of all keep smiling.

 

Remembering the Eagle Eye

A quick trip back to Chikmagalur’s Eagle Eye Resorts. A resort we had been to at the beginning of this year. A lovely place, beautiful view and very enjoyable time.
Apart from the photographs from my Canon DSLR, I took some from my Motorola Phone too and I am glad that they came out very well. All these photographs were taken from my phone.

Posted for Julie’s Travel Photo of the week.

Modified the post to include the same for Sylvain’s weekly theme of Sunset too (I got a lovely Sunset photograph in there, you see)
