This Saturday we went to get my precious back from the Canon service center! While going to give the camera I went alone. In all I might have spent 2 hours in getting back home even though my sister (who met me near the mall) and I spent time sometime at Halidram.
While fetching the camera back, I decided to take Chhavi along thinking we will come back via the mall. I once again roughly allocated 2 hours for the whole exercise. However the kid had other ideas! We reached home after 5 hours. I got the pleasure of using my camera. But she gives me a lot of trouble when I want to click pictures! The picture you see is a result of a lot of cajoling. She was plotting and planning about today as well but I told her it was going to be a lazy Sunday. We had enough excitement for a week already!
I have my camera back now! It was in the service center for a week. The lens got stuck on the last day of Pench trip. I had a good experience with Canon service center. They were courteous and professional and gave me frequent updates. This is my first encounter with Canon service center and while I do not wish for any frequent encounters, I really liked the way they handled it. Now if all the after sales experiences were this good!
On the travel front, I would be in Pune later this week for the inauguration of a new Novotel hotel. I get to sit in a press conference too! So stay tuned for some updates from Pune. Later in January, my nephew and I are heading to Bhutan. We are the kinds who like to book the tickets first and worry about the cold and such things later! So travel plans look good so far. If we do not reach Bhutan we certainly are going to reach Sikkim.
This is my first visit to Kerala and I am thoroughly enjoying myself. But the focus is as of now on enjoying and not doing blog posts. So here are beautiful flowers for a lazy Sunday from the hotels I stayed in at Kochi. It is called Fort House.
My entire trip has been arranged by Travspire. And it has been an amazing trip. And this is just the beginning. I have many more things to do before I head back home!
Wish you all a very happy holi. May you travel more this spring and throughout the year and may your travel be colorful! We had a great time this year.
For the first year my daughter decided to play Holi this time! Till last year she you tell us she didn’t like it! So it was great fun for us.
Have fun, enjoy the colors and play safe.
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
