I'm back to my roots after an year of alienation in a small but beautifully maintained City/Country - Singapore. My vacation started with a bang - A Family Trip after 20 long years. A trip which has brought us together - Just to relax and recuperate !! Early morning we started from home when even nocturnal mammals tend to sleep and 2 hours of travel led to a bright and well lit - Tirupathi temple, where we happened to listen to a woman with a gr8 voice singing "Subrabatham" - A good start with God's support indeed (which was helpful in latter part of our tour) !! We reached Ooty, then moved to Avalanche with Chevy loaded with all the provisions to stay there - What a place to stay was the comment from my Bro !! (Hope you all agree to it after seeing the snap). We had a nice time for 2 days and then we started to move to a Dam site, but there was a road block due to trees falling cos of heavy wind and rain in that area. Trip that lasted for just 2 days will be etched in our mind for ever - As we were together on a trip after a very long time.
