Britain has some beautiful and delightful to listen to feathered birds. Mrs G and I both have British song birds as our ringtones.

India may have the ultimate bird; the peacock in the wild, but no-one will want to spend too long listening to his song!

Default A Fairytale

I read this thread from start to end and it’s touching and fantastic! This is like a fairytale, very well interpreted. Maybe some of our story writers, aka Karan Johar and Sooraj Barjatya can include some funny incidents here in their scripts.

Your 16 day stay together reflects love, romance, passion, care, fun, laughter, charm and anguish of parting.

About TheOne®: A sweetheart with integrity, intelligence, confidence with a positive good heart and soul. The one who enjoys outdoor activities, is comfortable in jeans, skirts, bathing suits or just naked.

About The Yeti®: Playful tomboy, loves to laugh, kiss, be spoiled with romance, making her day and night so awesome.

Thank you both for sharing, enjoy!

Imagine a Bollywood movie made on this trip, lol. No, I don't think that would work.

I know a certain someone who assumed I wrote it for you!! I'd like to say, that I'm terrible at poems and rhymes and I could never write something as nice as that.
Sam, two mistakes in a single post!!

What has happened to you man?

Reminds me of:-

Marvelous!!! Just about finished going through this Blog and it just made me want to alter my way of holidaying and that says a lot.

It's not that I have been living a dull and dreary life, without any vacationing, but, to be truthful, would want the poor wifey to take care of the kids while at the pool, as I sip on my drinks at the Bar, when on a holiday.

This whole blog, has made me want to get my family out and dote on them all day through, instead of just doing what I need to do.

Yes, this is a confession I have made out here, but what the heck, when Sam and Jenny have been so open to let us into their lives, the least I should be doing is to thank them for changing my perception towards a holiday.

Thanks Sam and Jenny. Probably I'd carry my drink to the poolside the next time .

But seriously, I don't know - was there something to tell about the nights? lol.

Hi!

Just wanted you guys to know that my Father just read and finished this travelogue and enjoyed it thoroughly. It took him a week.
This is the first travelogue written by me/us that he's ever read. He was very involved, impressed and very happy to read all of it.

Thank you Team-BHP.

Whew! I finally got up to speed on this one.

Best travelogue I've read in my life. Makes me want to throw everything all to hell and start travelling our country

Great going, Sam and Jenny! I'll look forward to more travelogues like this.

Finally finished reading this and what a travelogue it has been !! Amazing stuff Jenny and Sam !!

Sam, your office is stunning !! Some day in the future, I want my office to be like that. It looks so classy and uncluttered and still somehow is full of character !! It isnt the typical boring offices we see.

The Neemrana hotel was stunning. I have downloaded those pics to my hard disk and stored them for my future reference.

No more travel agents for me from now on. A trip within India or abroad, Sam, you will be flooded with PMs from me.

Apart from this, I especially enjoyed your Germany in Winter blog. That was truly awesome. The stuff dreams are made of

You are very welcome Nikhil. Travel is a beautiful thing and should be not only planned, but enjoyed to the extreme. I would be happy to help.

Excellent write-up TheOne and Sam. I enjoyed each and every bit of it.

Ok just a stupid question you went to Hanging Garden, by any chance did you bump into this guy?
