A walk in the mountains

Thursday Challenge : "GREEN" (Plants, Cloths, Cars, Toys, Houses,...)



Mukteshwar
 We clicked these pictures during a vacation to Mukteshwar, Nainital last June. That was one of the most peaceful vacations we had.... no crowd, no mandatory horse rides, no boats on the lake, no stress of visiting sunset/sunrise points, nothing... an agendaless vacation.

All we did was read books, chatted, lazed around, ........


Big cousin Varun takes over the hammock


made bouquets of wild flowers and watched the apples growing on trees, ....


The not quite ripe apples

took long walks in the green mountains and when we couldn't walk anymore some of us got free rides....

Hrit gets a ride with big brother

... while the rest of us called for the driver.

  6. It sounds like an ideal vacation, away from all the hustle and bustle! While I've visited 45 different countries and 25 Caribbean islands, about 2/3rds of my vacations have definitely not been relaxing and I returned home needing a vacation.

  7. @Uma.. Chilled drink and a good book would be my idea od heaven in a hammock :-).. provided the kids let you have a turn.

    @Shilpa.. it really is peaceful.

    @Gattina.. isn't it?

    @Priya.. that was our first time too.

    @Rnsane.. Wow you're quite a traveller.. an activity filled vacation is fun too but one like this is more relaxing I guess.

  15. @Sangeeta.. the road's tempting and the weather's so cool you end up walking a lot.
