Mountains always keeps us calling, and Radhika being Himachali had been to her hometown in Himachal Pradesh, India almost every year in summer vacations during childhood. But Prince never had the pleasure of staying in any traditional Himachali home...
So last year, It was monsoon and we were having a long weekend. We desperately wanted to go on a road trip and after discarding lot of places due to different reasons, we decided to go to Shimla in Himachal Pradesh.
Even knowing the risks of landslides during monsoon on hilly areas, we decided to go on this adventurous trip in our Ford Figo car driving through the Kalka-Shimla Highway. And let me tell you it was so much fun due to the amazing monsoon weather. During trip we sang lot of Hindi and Himachali songs including one of our favorite "Mai ne meriye .. Shimle di raahein"
As Prince always wanted to stay in traditional Himachali home from long time, we decided to book a Home stay in Himachal and after checking few options, we booked the place about which we are going to tell you.
We fell in love at first sight with "Meena Bagh Homes, Sanjauli, Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, India". Meena Bagh is just a 2-3 year old property formed and owned by Mr. Sanjay Austa, a Journalist, Photographer, and Eco-Tourism Entrepreneur and a part time Orchardist also.. Yes, he does quite a lot :)
After dinner we stayed in the living room itself with all the hangover we got from dinner we overate😜 . We played carom for some time with the other guests and chatted for some time. Later we went to our super cozy and comfy room. Being tired from driving and because of having lot of food we slept.
