With the kind of lives we lead, it is difficult to take more than 2-3 long vacations in a year. Thanks to my job profile I start feeling braindead if I do not travel at least once in two months (which is outside of weekend travels). So most of my trips are 3-5 day long, where I combine weekends with a public holiday and/or bunk a day at work.
March being an ideal time to catch some snow, a trip to Kashmir was long awaited. I combined the Holi holiday with the weekend and took 1 day off from work and voila!, a 4 day trip was planned.
