Hey, that was a nice and different travelogue, written from the female perspective. We need more of this on Team-BHP.

Nice pictures along with the travelogue and to be away from such kind of cops its better to keep a marriage certificate in your car dash box along with other car documents

You said what I always say to all here who claim that Shimla is not worth.

I still feel its fun to spend some time on mall road after visit shimla so many time.

Very good trip/suggestions and pics.

Very nice writeup.
Reading it and looking at pictures just refreshes memories.
Although, Shimla is less than 3 hours drive from my place.
And, we have a small cottage in BAROG (midway to shimla, 1-1/2 hour drive from my place). Cottage is on a hill, you have to go a little offroad, It has a very nice view. I visit there often. Very soothing.

I wanted to thank you all once again to appreciate and encourage a lady’s perspective towards a travel trip. I understand it is a little different from men, because as per my understanding men see things from a different view point – a view point that’s more world-ly rational. For most women the perception is a mixed balance of emotion and practicality.
Thank you once again.
(This gives me more confidence to use this forum openly to share my thoughts.)

I would like you to elaborate on this as your analysis has made me curious...

Let me use an example to elaborate more on it:

2 people, a guy and a girl once went to see the London’s famous Clock Tower (Big Ben). Looking at it they thought:

Guy :Wow what a machine. That’s huge, what would be the height of this tower, and I guess the weight will be above 10 tons. Did they actually make the whole thing and then transported it here at this place or did they got it here in parts and then assembled it. The machine behind it will be huge too. I wish I could take a look at the machinery. I am sure the ticking of the watch would be heard if I go inside this building. What a beautiful piece of machine…And so on.

Girl :Wow what a beauty. Was it made by a king for his queen whom he loved dearly, I wonder… (Then she smiles) how romantic. Look at the golden color on this monument, how do they manage to keep it so shining in all the weather. People who live around this place don’t actually need a watch, coz they can always peep out of their window and see the time on this clock (she smiles again). I wish I could get a miniature of this monument, and I’ll love to place it in the drawing room side table that’s of black glass. Oh, its 3 pm already, how fast time moves. Yesterday at 3 I was with my mom, she is so lovable. I wish mom was also here with me, I’ll bring her along next time. …And so on.

The above explains what I was saying.

Ummm...guys are more practical you see. We cannot imagine romantic things just by seeing the clock. Hope the guy you are speaking about is an engineer.

Ignore the road in the picture above; just see the clouds and the weather. Such bad roads cannot discourage true travel lovers.


Please change your Wipers as they are leaving a streak on the windshiled which might result in a scratch on the windshield...

shimla in moonsoon is very much fun, and if its crowded start driving towards 'faagu' to next destination whiich would be a small place by name of Thiog. but the drive is much worth it and for the codrivers seat, the scenery is amazing and romantic too. do remember driving their in Indica...during moonsoon... and halway when rain started, wipers stopped moving. Vista I guess is much more reliable then first lot of Indica which we had
