It’s been exactly two years since I’ve met my parents and gone back to India and specifically Mumbai. And the suspense of when I can go back is really bad, because my parents are elderly and my father is not doing too good, healthwise. So here are some of my favourite photos of our last India trip.

The oher day, I was checking old photos on Facebook and saw some which made me want to travel. So here are some random travel photos which, though we can’t travel, has satiated some of the travellust in me.

The other day, GG, BB and I were grumbling about not having taken any holiday for almost 18 months now and with even the border between Singapore and Malaysia closed to tourists, we griped about how we could not even drive down there for a quick holiday.

That brought back memories of two of our trips to mainland Malaysia – one to Langkawi when the children were about nine years old and then to Penang when we did a quick trip during their PSLE marking holiday, so when they were around twelve years old. Both times, though we flew into the cities, we rented a car there and were able to go where we wanted to which was so easy for us. So I went back to my photos and revisited these places in the hope we go back soon. Enjoy them as much as I did.

The other day while looking for some photos to add to my screen saver, I saw some of these photos and had a serious case of wanderlust which at this point in time can’t be satiated. So I am trying to quench some of it with this post.

Facebook reminded me sometime back about our trip to Langkawi some eight or nine years back. So I decided to share some photos here. We went when the children were little and so hired a car and took our own sweet time to roam around. On one such trip, we came across a Thai wat and a Hindu temple next to each other and the location just below some cliffs made for some stunning photos!
