A weekend trip to Cherapunjee ( in Meghapaya - North East India)

Some bits and pieces of memories through my camera lenses from the family weekend trip to Cherapunjee last weekend. The place is almost felt like a piece of paradise on earth. The azure sky and the openness around is enough to make one feel kind of very much lost in the vastness among the exclusive creation of the Almighty. The rolling hills and vast meadow all around and I ended up clicking so many pics that the Camera must have gone completely tired of me and if only it could have voiced its own opinion then sure that would be a pure rejection to be again in my hand!!

So here is a slice of trip intended to be shared with my hubber friends out there. Welcome down the lanes of fresh memory to make you feel refreshed!

Pieces of memories that make a life....and the journey thus feels so complete. It's a never ending voyage to our destination and life itself is a journey. The skies, the trees and the fields so beautiful around that life seems to be so much content.

Pieces of nature that I tended to carry in the bag of mixed memories from the land of clouds. The road side flowers were blooming in the best of colors may be for the awesome weather there. The scenic beauty was fantastic. It was felt almost like breathing the mountain air in the fresh way to make life worth living little bit more.

There are some new resorts coming up the area which is a real welcome change as little while ago Cherrapunjee had only one resort, i. e. Cherra Resort. The main difference that one would feel as well as you enter the region is the lack of human around. The vast openness is so very soothing. After staying in a city like Guwahati which is very much crowded with people, the lack of human around much was very much surprising. The walk in the road where one can actually hear from afar the rising sound of any nearing vehicle was actually amazing to realize. The air itself was so much refreshing that it makes one feel reinvigorated. Waiting again to visit the place almost to feel the moistened air across my face while strolling around in near future.

Cherrapunjee is kind of a place which is very suitable for a weekend getaway for people like us who remain in a very hectic working schedule. The food in the resort was very tasty and we had some local fruits which was an experience in itself. Obviously the main attraction is the family time with son and hubby which becomes an added flavor while going on a short weekend trip which I being a working mom enjoy till fullest. These are the occasions actually as a family we get time to spend together as we three always remain busy in our own works and hardly gets time to even talk during a normal week day. While writing this hub, realization struck that may be this time to schedule another short family trip to catch up on with many school stories of Son and other stories from Hubby. So yeah I should be planning another trip soon while I wish you all the very best for your holiday trips ahead as well.
