Last three months were hectic for me and my husband. Purchasing a new house, completing the legal formalities, selecting stuff for renovating the house, renovation and finally shifting; all this took a real toll on us. Once we were done, we took no time to plan a weekend getaway to take a Kit-Kat break.
Weekend getaways do not excite me much. Vacation must be long enough for the holiday feelings to sink in ;). Hence, all the planning and itinerary bookings were done by Rupam. After all the extravagance on the new house, the trip had to be a budget trip. Corbett was on our mind for quite some time. Luckily we found few discounted packages on Corbett website. These were Independence Day special packages ranging from 9k to 20k per couple. For 20 K we got two days stay in Samsara Resort which did not include the Corbett safari.
The weekend trip began with early morning Shatabdi to Kathgodam. As soon as we stepped out of the train, we were enthralled by the incredible view we saw right from the Railway station (In Pictures).
Kathgodam to Samsara Resort was a 90 minutes run. I was so glad of Rupam’s choice of resort. It was a huge property sprawling over acres of land with Kosi River flowing behind the resort. As usual, my choosy husband bargained for the room with the best view. I was more than glad to be here and wanted to spend rest of the weekend in the Resort peacefully.
The first day of our weekend trip ended gorging on the lavish buffet, taking a small stroll on the banks of Kosi River and lounging in the resort. Not to miss, the evening was fun with live music, dance and playing Thambola with other guests.
