My Teddy Travelogue

This post won ‘Indi Happy Hours Voucher’ in #TeddyTravelogues campaign organized by IndiBlogger in association with Club Mahindra.

They say, “Life is magical when you are with kids!” I am no exception to deny it. I, too, happened to travel to one of my favorite holiday destinations with my family and friends. It was a planned trip to Mysore from Bangalore. Everyone backpacked clothes, food, water, electronic gadgets, and what not… the list was big, though the bag mouth cried.

But… one bag was different. It was small, pink-colored, heavy for a three-years-old, and had items that could take you to the world “Kid-o-Mania”. Ashik, my nephew, was a naughty kid, but at the same time, he is a kid with extra-ordinary dreams. He would play all android games, thousand times better than I would, in his tab. On the other hand, he would draw a bird inside a cage, erase the cage, set it free and smile happily. It was his wisdom. To such a kid, his mother, my elder sister, packed his bag, in a way he wished it to be packed.

His toy “buzz lighter” (sorry, if there is a typo) was kept at the bottom in a corner, the small football in another corner of the bag, Frisbee, the dress to play in the mud, a small spade and other stuffs (the names I could not recall), his favorite cream biscuits, the best homemade popcorn, extra pair of sandals, the kids guitar, his shades, the tab, the pink colored water bottle (he is a pink lover) and his favorite books (includes his homework, notebook and pencil box… these days kids have to write homework even in their holidays :P).

I had no idea on what he was up to. I observed him from the very first minute of our trip. He read his book for the first thirty minutes of travel, then he played “Subway Surfers” for twenty minutes, he took a small nap, before we got down to have our breakfast. After the breakfast, he was playing with his toys. Once we got down at Mysore palace, he was not so active, but after noticing the big palace, he got excited. It was fun to watch him jump, shout and do all sort of stuffs. When we were done with the palace, we sat down. He quickly wore a coat and started playing with his spade; I really wished that I be his company. Might be, he read me, so he invited me to play with Football. Trust me; I’ve never enjoyed playing Football that much before. He then washed his hands in the nearby tab, and ate the delicious homemade popcorn, and drank water from his bottle.

We roamed around the city all day. We were tired by the evening, but he was not. He was still up with the guitar in the return journey and danced to the tunes we played in our mobile phones. I had a great experience that day.

If vacations are Pizzas, then vacations with kids’ means “Pizzas with Cheese Burst”! True that! I wish to have more Pizzas with Cheese Burst. Okay, for now, I’m signing off… keep sending your thoughts on comments and emails. Have a nice day!

They say, “A Picture is worth a thousand words!” Live in it! Konigsee, a eye-catchy tourism destination in Germany.

The first thing we (Me & my partner in crime, my best friend Siva) did was having our lunch. Guess where? I know you would guess it right!

We’re waiting for the bus. No, actually, he is waiting and I’m clicking..

The first thing we did after reaching there… 😛 We took a walk (did we?)

The captain of the ship was on time. I wonder how they follow their timelines.

Pam..Pam…It’s an ECHO POINT. And it did echo whatever music he created. (oh buddy, I’m sorry, but you need to learn how to play a Trumpet.)

People of all ages looking forward to land at Konigsee, the island of tree fossils.

Ah! The entrance…

Much closer!

More people joining us. It’s going to be fun!

That’s what we call as picture perfect!

Twins, and you know what, they made the trip lively. We enjoyed clicking them.

Ah! What a priceless reaction. She inspired us to get into the water…

That’s me, flaunting my six-pack body! (#TrueStory :-P)

The divine path of nature. (oh yes, I’m speaking about the place :-P)

In life, we always stand at the crossroads. It’s just that one decision can take you to the right path. (Too much philosophy, is it?)

My partner in crime, wants to click a photograph, as if he is looking for frames to click 😛

Life has a ‘L’ board, and that’s Love. Make sure you learn properly before you drive in a highway called ‘Marriage; (Again too much philosophy here)

One of the tree fossils… I just loved it. If you are a lover of tree fossils (have you visited Brindavan Gardens of Bangalore?) This is five time bigger than that in terms of fossils.

That’s the route map (Dear techie’s this is not powered by Google)

A much closer look at the park name, will help you walk smiling 🙂

Ah! That’s what we call as a perfect frame!

Family and Friends having fun!

Time to click our face 😛

Yes, that’s a classic pic !

A family living on the opposite side of Konigsee.

Guess where we are heading to?

If you guessed it right, yes, we’re in Salzburg, Old City!

More pics to come in my next travelogue post. Stay tuned.

Konigsee, be it any seasons, it is a fantastic place to visit. We’ve been there in winter as well as in summer. It’s an treat for the eyes. It’s an ideal place for couple who wants to spend quality time for them, for family who wants to dedicate time out of their busy lives, and for wanderers like us!
