Travel companion, anyone?

It’s really long since I have paid a visit to this space and I know I don’t even deserve any apologies :( And considering I was someone who was addicted to internet at one point of time and had to struggle to discipline myself to distribute my time and energy to other activities, it is very weird that now a days I hardly switch on the comp after I come back home. Strange are the ways of human mind!!! Btw I have a feeling that something has hit the whole blogworld - except for a very few consistent ones almost everyone in my blogroll seems to be silent… So it’s not just me after all (you need some excuses right) ;)

I know I failed to keep my promise about the VoF trip travelogue. I don’t know if it makes sense even if I try to complete it now as the continuity is totally gone :( In the meanwhile I went for two more awesome long trips – one was Delhi-Madhura-Vrindavan-Agra-Dehradun-Mussorie during March-April 2010. It was more of a leisurely trip just to break the routine. Next was Rajastan during Oct-Nov 2010. That was a hectic but very enjoyable trip and we covered Jaipur-Pushkar-Chittaur-Udaipur-Mt Abu Ranakpur-Jodhpur-Jaisalmer-Sam Dunes camp-Bikaner(Phew). Now if you are wondering why I am suddenly in a trip mode – yeh I am planning my next trip ;) This time it is Europe and I’m planning to cover Amsterdam (Keukenhof gardens which is the main motivation for this trip, Volendam, Marken and the Windmill village), Swiss(hopefully all of it), and south east France (Nice, Monte Carlo, Eze, Cannes, CHAMONIX, Annecy). Planning to leave by May 5th 2011and will be back by around end of May. So the purpose of this post is to check if I have any readers who are as crazy as me who would like to join this journey (whole or partial) :P Do mail me if you are interested, but soon :)

Enjoy your trip. I don't know about other places, but be careful of your possessions in Amsterdam. Very famous for theft. Had it happen to a family member.
