Day 1

The two things that took my breath away..lakes are peaceful and calm. They don't charge at you or challenge you like the ocean, but they are just there, pleasing our eyes and soul. Umnian lake or Barapani nearby Shillong is beautiful. I was so delightful to be there that I almost danced with joy! Devpriyo was pleasantly surprised to see sudden change in my mood. It was the mid afternoon time when we reached there, but the weather was amazing and cool. I would have love to sit next to umnian for hours and feel the peace of nature surrounding me, but we have to leave after an hour so. This was the first spot we visited after starting our journey to mesmerizing Meghalaya. What a wonderful  start to begin our vacation.
