Wheels on my feet

If there is one thing i can claim to be totally passionate about – it is planning a holiday. My life is planned around holidays…so there are pre-baby holidays, pregnancy holidays, infant baby holidays, toddler baby holidays, Teenager not so baby holidays, old age holidays – all planned out in my head.

My babies are deferred coz of lots of pending pre-baby holidays. I have to admit the only one of the main reason i got married soon was to fit in all the “together together” holidays i had planned. I am sure i will manage to remain pregnant until i finish my pregnancy holidays.

There are weekend getaways, action packed holidays, resting holidays, “Me too” holidays all readily available in the encyclopedia of my head.

There are getaways for all budgets – when our Home loan makes us paupers, when our kids make us almost paupers (2 lakhs school fees!!! are u kidding me), when we get a lottery, when the husband becomes CEO, when the sultan of Brunei passes on his inheritance to me.

I am usually my only client but once in a while an unknown victim happens to ask me for advice and i pretty much dictate them into following my plan to a T plan their itinerary. The world doesn’t appreciate talent when they see it.

So should we be looking at 10 days, need to rest, budget (thanks to the huge Home Loans EMI’s), Passport Chaap required – the grid in my head dictates Sri Lanka.

So that’s where we are off to end Nov (Passport god’s willing – to be precise – passport renewal god’s willing) and i would love suggestions on places to stay, things to do or visit in Sri Lanka.

Hmmmmph – of course i have an itinerary in my head but then again…i am open to ideas unlike this one colleague couple who asked for my advice on their honeymoon and totally disregarded my opinion. I still nag them on this on

    Woah! Nice, have loads of fun on the trip! I think I need to catch up with you for a sneak peek into you travel database for places around Mumbai for short trips.. I have been researching on that for a while, with not so encouraging results.

    “when the sultan of Brunei passes on his inheritance to me” – That’s not happening, ma. I am ahead in line, or so I have been told. πŸ˜‰
    Have an awesome holiday! And if and when I need help on planning, I’ll let you know and I will follow your plan to the T! πŸ˜€
