It had been a while since Tee and I made a trip to the hills! And so the planning began. It’s interesting how Kareri was destined for the plans changed twice in a month’s time…From Valley of flowers to Shillong and Ziro Fest in Arunachal, we finally zeroed on to Kareri! Blame the Major for his majorrr leave crisis but love him even more for it weren’t for the crisis, our one week stay at the village and my hike up to the lake would have never happened! And just in case you happen to ask me WHY? You see Men are wired like that! A week-long leave would mean,doing a travel marathon, covering a minimum of four places. That’s how we traveled as kids with Dad…sleep deprived..exhausted, yet trying to fake a smile for the camera and ticking off almost every place in our bucket list! And that’s how Tee likes it too! Ufff!
So even though the rain gods wrecked havoc all over Himachal, affecting our trip as well, I couldn’t be more grateful for I got to spend one whole week in my very own Haven…Kareri.
