@Hampi

We winded up last year with a quick getaway to Hampi. The place has a "earthy" charm to it..... leaves u in awe at how time bought down one of the richest kingdoms in India to its current ruins!

Hv a look at this pic... one of the many entrances to the queens summer palace! Imagine the city's grandeur when it was in its full glory! For once the rain gods were kind to us.... provided jus the cloudy shade we needed to cover the seemingly never-ending monuments!

The place we stayed at Hampi was on the other side of river tungabadhra -  which seems more like a foreigners colony - away from the hustle n bustle of main Hampi Town. The only flip-side being tht last ferry that will take u across is at 6 in eve!

But what I took away the most from the hols are the hordes of foreigners who are on 6-12 months of holiday with the only item in their agenda being - see the world(India in this case!). Pure Bliss rt! Couldnt help feeling J for those 20 somethings.....

Most importantly this was a trip that healed....... All the walking, the beauty of earthiness, getting away from routine, good food n jus meeting people!
