Holiday!!!!!!!!!!!! Trip to Coorg

Holiday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wednesday [26 Jan] was a holiday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Wow, first thing which came to my mind. I'll take leave on thursday and friday and go home. :)

But u see there were other things on store, i realized that i cant take a leave. In the meanwhile team mates were planning for a trip to Coorg [Beautiful place in Karnataka].

We left around 4.30 AM from Mysore. 9 of us. The vehicle was full. And we were struggling for space, but soon we got adjusted. Most of us were still sleepy. Well i dont know about the rest but atleast i was very sleepy[I had come back from office at 12.30 and had to wake up at 3.30].

It was nearing 6 everyone wanted to have coffee/tea [but i was very very hungry!!!!!!!!]. We went to some place had coffee and started off fresh [again] to our first detination.

We were moving towards Coorg, on the way there is a tibetian settlement.It was just 7.20 AM or so..... So the place looked so beautiful. We stopped in front of a buddist monastry. Oh man........ that place was amazing...... So much peace.... But we were just acting like kids. Saw a dragon drawn on the road. We were so amused looking at the places there.
These were few of the the pics which we took there.

and the statues like this are beautiful

Baejaar said...

I cannot stop admiring your project and department. How is it that they gave leave at one go for nine person for two consecutive days? You seem to be really lucky......

Art said...

Raj,
U helped me a lot in this :)

Smyta,
It indeed is a beautiful place. The pics potray just 10% or even less when compared to the actual beauty of the place...

Prakash,
Being in India, we hardly visit Indian places yaar... we think we can go there anytime...
More pics.... well i'll try to post more not the same but whole of the trip....

Dheepak,
Hey no!!!!!!! we never got a holiday... Jan 26 was a national holiday...and we went on that day. Thi s was a one day trip. I thought i'll take leave and go home for the next 2 days... since i had work both days dint take leave... No chance that we get leave for 2 days for 9 people...
