Himalayan Romance

All trips are special and filled with memories but the term Road trip stirs in a lot of feelings and chords. Its not only about the destination but beauty of the journey, the grandeur of travel unlike other trips( plane, rail, cruise etc.).
Its about the luxury of the place and nature. Exploring the roads, towns, nature, quaint places; World at large in the true sense. A feeling that none other can truly match. The excitement of embarking on new adventures. The true sense of achievement. Not a tailor made vacation but one with spontaneity, discoveries and surprises. No wonder every single time I am equally thrilled as ever for a road trip.

After a many a road trip along with family and a chest full of memories to last forever, this time I want to go on a perfect romantic road trip with hubby dear.
According to me road trip helps in strengthening relationships and bonds, discovering each other in a completely different way. Building vivid and ever lasting memories.
Hence this time I want to make it extra special, just the two of us and this magical journey.

Adding another exciting romantic adventure to our life. There can be no other better way of culminating 2 years of being married happily and celebrating our togetherness.

Destination - Himalayas is a classic backdrop for Bollywood romance and all the die hard romantics.

Route - Pune-- Indore -- Ajmer -- Shimla -- Kulu -- Manali -- Mandi -- Palampur -- Mc Leod Ganj -- Kangra -- Ambala -- Ajmer -- Indore -- Pune
