Sam: Salutes to you buddy. This was just the cream on the cake. I remember NC always complainin that the ending has to be worked upon but "This ending was the best i have read in all your blogs."
It moved me.

Jenny: Kudos to you. Welcome to India. The last pic of jeeny in front of an Air India Jet is just brilliant for this moment.

Congrats to the couple. May you have wonderful Years ahead.

Last but not the least. Kudos Tbhp. You been the perfect production house for this wonderful movie

Hey Sam,

This has to be the best Yeti Blog. A perfect beginning for TheCouple.

Most of us can relate instances of our lives to some or the other part of your blogs. The memories with RX100, TheOne visiting India for the 1st time, Holiday in Goa etc etc.

Your blogs reflect simple yet wonderful phases of life. Almost everyone here might have similar instances and fond memories but writing them down in such a lovely way is where the Yeti excels.

I loved the pics at the Airport where Jenny's family had come to see her off. Be it India or Germany, a family is always a family. Love, Respect, Affection & Admiration will always be unconditional

My heartfelt wishes to both of you. May TheCouple be blessed with the best of happiness and long life.

Thumbs up

Congrats and wishing all the best to The Yeti and The Yetini.
Almost all of Sam's travelogues have been like reading a novel with pictures as bonus. I have followed all of Sam's romantic travelogues and it feels like I know Sam and Jenny personally and have become so fond of The Couple.
Wishing you again all the best and all the happiness together.

Just imagine a bunch of women at a party and one tells the other "Hey, no matter what anyone says, I really respect men in general, I really can't stand a woman who doesn't respect her man"
Country music, Sam: Stand by your man and all the rest of that dreadful stuff!

Appreciate your sentiments on the subject in general, though. Well said!

Welcome back to India, Sam & Jenny!

I read this blog again from the beginning. More than just an enjoyable read, it was a beautiful experience. I've never read anything that moved me so much. I'm not saying this just to be nice, but I really mean it. Thank you for sharing with us, Sam and Jenny. You folks are great together. May you have the happiest of lives together.

You have a way with words. I'm sure it would turn out to be very involving. And I suppose eventful stuff keeps happening with you, which is worth writing about. Fluent English-speaking cops giving you celebrity treatment, RX100's, Rajnikanth's and what not Maybe you could glorify your walk down to your car from the building and it would probably be just as intriguing.

'Diary of a Genius' comes to mind!
His Yetiship could indeed match it!

Old boy, I hate to be the one to break it to you, but the New Year generally begins on January 1st.

Phew! Thanks for that, Sam!
I think he meant to write 31st December.
Y'see the problem here seems to be that this spelling checker thingy will not help if the word exists and is spelt correctly!
