A Rare Holiday

A rare holiday after exams. It was decided to go for an excursion. Though it didn't turn out to be as planned.. but there were enough memories - both in mind as well as in form of 200 photographs..

Never in exams had we got up at 6.30... But had to do it to catch the train in a non-rush hour...

Breakfast @ Churchgate Station

No Autos in the poshest area of Mumbai.... so a Taxi ride to the Gateway..

The Taj - Mumbai one... can be said to be one of the wonders among the hotels...

'Chal dhano...'

With Dhano on the move.. its time to enjoy the serene surroundings

A magnificent view of Taj and Gateway together

The kafila moved to Haaji Ali after the boat ride...

Beautiful Nakasshi inside the structure

'Dhal gaya Din... Ho gayi shaam'..incidentally the previous evening was also spent at the same place

Catching up with the lost sleep of 10 days... The train is a lovely lullaby

Glad to see your blog back in action..

These photos look so much familiar to me. Morning local, Churchgate staion pe coffee & taxi.. my daily routine till some time back. I used to catch 6:30 train. :-)

When I saw your photos, I thought the visit was to Elephanta caves of which I have yet to write about. Till pic no. 7 is common for the journey.

Keep posting.

My first thoughts: You got space to photograph and sleep in locals? Is there a Mumbai band or anything?

My second thoughts: Early morning and late night. Then it's ok.

My third thoughts: Nice photos. Looks like you enjoyed a lot.

Damn, I have been thinking a lot lately.

I think you had more than enough fun for a day there :D

And yes, no one has yet accused me of being illogical.

after long travel nice pic which express the travel of whole day. I think you should add your blog at BlogAdda and let more people discover your blog. It's a great place for Indian bloggers to be in and I am sure it would do wonders for your blog.
