Thanks, I have a nikon d5000 and 18 -55 & a 55 -200 lens. Not really a telephoto but then it gets the job done 95% of the time in the jungle.

Hi WAG 7 !

Long time indeed. And look what you have gone and done in the meantime...

Congratulations to you both ! Have a long, prosperous & happy wedded life together .

Delightful snaps. Very nice indeed. To have spotted a tiger in Corbett - no mean feat I tell you.

And about the title of this thread...errr...no honeymoon is small ! I am sure you meant that the travelogue is/was a small one - eh ?

Is this the Supreme court?
That monument is Shanti Stupa, built few (4-5) years back at ring road next to indraprastha / millenium park.

That is india gate cordoned off.

And its not Supreme Court. Its the national gallery of modern art.

Cheers!

Congratulations !!
Your Binsar pictures reminded me of our honeymoon long long time back. We stayed a week in Khali Estate in the middle of one of the coldest winter in North India. Positive part of that cold was there was not a hint of cloud and we almost got bored by looking at the 180 degrees view of Himalayas for almost 24 hours a day !!

Nainital is where we spent our 1st wedding anniversary and your pictures bring back great memories

Wish you both years of happiness and togetherness

Yes, we had indeed got wedding presents as we saw many beautiful sights in the jungle. The landscapes were absolutely amazing even in the peak summer season, so I can just imagine how beautiful it must be in the winters/post rainy season.

Some very beautiful pictures of colourful flowers & butterflies.
Thanks, the tiger sighting was an added bonus. I had earlier told my wife, that in Corbett N.P, it is very difficult to see a tiger. And from so close quarters, it is next to impossible. But the jungle proved us wrong. Even though it was for hardly 2-3 mins, it was a totally satisfying feeling.

That's what the boatman told us. He said that machine puts oxygen into the water, just like in the fish tank. We too saw such a thing for the first time.

Thanks for the info Irish. We had actually planned to go sightseeing for 4-5 hours in Delhi, but then the heat was unbearable and we didn't have any time left before the flight. Delhi is a nice city, we were amazed to see so much greenery in the city. Here in Pune, many trees were blatantly cut down in the name of road widening, so now almost every road is a barren patch of concrete.

Thanks, & yes; it was off beaten track. But all places were very beautiful and very relaxing atmosphere everywhere.

Cool, you got to see the Himalayas. We almost got bored looking at the rain and clouds though Khali estate is a nice place. Very very peaceful.

Thanks! Nainital is a very good place, though I thought that it is a little more congested now. (I had imagined pictures of a small tranquil idyllic british era town.) And everywhere you have to climb a lot!

Dear W.A.G.7 - thank you so much for this wonderful travelogue and the lovely pictures, especially of the flowers and of Nainital! For your information, Nainital was the first major halt of the Himalayan Rally cars, all parked in the football field, next to the lake. Nowadays I visit Nainital very regularly but it is not for holiday, it is for work! Vehicle evaluation happens to be a part of my profession, one of our test routes passes through Nainital. I did not go boating as I don't much like being on water, all my colleagues enjoyed the experience! We also picked up some unique "save the tiger" T shirts from Jim Corbett's museum in Kaladhungi, very good but at 650 rupees, costly.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

We didn't visit the musuem, but yes, everywhere in and around Corbett the T-shirts and souvenirs are costly.

1. Congratulations for not only getting married but also to have got a companion who seems to agree to play ball with all your adventures in life. pun intended

2. Someone has already answered your questions you tossed towards Delhi folks. And he got it bang on.

3. Rated the thread a well deserved 5 star. Not only for the super quality pics, but also for the short sentences which convey so much.
