Fly far away, dissolve and quite forget…

ladakh - skies
These words from John Keats’ Ode to a Nightingale means more to me now than it did when I was studying literature in college. As summer approaches, its time to plan my holidays yet again. I am wondering if I should go to the forests or the hills . Maybe its a good time to plan another trip to Europe. Last year, I was happy to have toured quite a few cities but I had to leave Prague out unfortunately. I would love to go back to the UK again. As for India, the Himalayas beckons.
I love trains but domestic fares have indeed come down and I am going to start booking flights early this time around . I would prefer destinations in India as fares are now as cheap as Rs 2000/- one way to certain destinations. I am for instance flying Trivandrum – Bangalore this Sunday on a similar fare .Ever since Jet lowered their prices a while ago, other airlines like Go Air, Indian Airlines have already joined in the bandwagon. But seriously, it does not matter which airlines as long as they do take off and land on time.
What do you say ? So where are you planning this summer ? Meanwhile am off to Nagercoil and Kanyakumari today. See you guys in a bit.

    Thanks Lakshmi for sharing this. Ladakh looks fabulous from the sky. One has to be lucky to be next to correct window to capture it. Make sure you get a window seat :-).

    We have shared a series of pictures of Ladakh from sky in our blog in the series “Ladakh Diaries”.

    All the best for your trip to KK and Nagarkoil. In fact i was reading a nice article on Tirunelvei Halwa few weeks back in “Hindu”. Don’t miss savouring it when you are there!!
