After 2 months at our cottage deep into the forest in Kasar Devi, we gave in to temptation and planned a short weekend trip to Nainital. Even though it was the beginning of March, the weather had already become quite hot and we figured that if we didn’t go to Nainital now it might just become too hot to go later! The lure of city pleasures like eating chola bhatura, aloo tikki, buying wine and beer were our prime reasons for going to Nainital. When we hitched a ride out of Almora, little did I know that Nainital would bestow spring delights in an unexpected, beautiful way.
Here’s a compilation of some spring photographs from Nainital : The locals said these were peach blossoms but the larger internet world thinks they are smarter and announced that they were cherry blossoms. After all cherry blossoms are more exotic and romantic and sell better and I went with the half-lie too. So here’s presenting peach (err cherry blossoms) of Nainital. Shall I just call them pink blossoms? (Cunning laughter!)
Today morning I realised it was 31 May and that would mean the month of May passing by without a new post on the blog. The numerous ones in progress would take time. This post didn’t take much time but definitely rekindled nice memories of carefree travel when we hitchhiked and took a bus ride during Covid times and actually ate at a super crowded dhaba like the old days!
Hope this post makes you happy too! Would love to hear in the comments.
