Posts Tagged ‘Grandparents’

Happy Summer people! The things-that-shall-not-be-named are finally done! I am currently visiting my grandparents. We got here this morning after a 24 hour train journey. Train journeys are interesting. We basically traveled more than half, along the length of our country. This is roughly the route.

So. Train Journeys. They’re good specially because you can actually totally relax when you’re on one. Because you’re in transit, you can’t do anything that’s related to your ‘real’ life. So, I always assumed that train journeys or traveling in general should lead to staring dreamily out of windows and having profound thoughts about life’s journey, how everything is ephemeral kind of thing. But, the only thought I seemed to have was, “Ooh! Sunset over a river! So Pretty!”. Sadly, I couldn’t take a picture of that since we were moving too fast. But, here’s are some pictures of my Gran’s roof, where she has a

whole bunch of plants. I have so many memories of following her around while she watered these from when I was younger!

This is the only image and quality that I can manage at the moment on account of the crappy internet. I shall upload the rest when I get back.

If you want to see the other pictures, go to my Instagram feed, here.

Bai!

iconator_81974403b92ca32b5a67efe2d6bd16abHi people. How’s life treating you? I’m on vacation now (officially) because all the crap entrance exams are done.

Here’s a story for you. My family is famous for it spur of the moment travel plans.We’ll be sitting at home one day and then next thing you know, I’m calling Fuzzy or BWC from were the hell ever I am. As a result of another such plan, I am now at my Granparents’ house in Gwalior. Either way, the random things I’m going to talk about are

1. Clown Cars

This is retaliation to this post written by my dearest brother over on his blog. Well, for one thing his facts are incorrect and biased. The car in question looks nothing like a Clown car, as he suggests. It is a Honda City, brand new and a gorgeous red. (I will post pictures when I get home.) I’m so excited! My dad and I go to this wide stretch of road near our school at 6 in the morning whenever we can and he gives me lessons. In three months I will officially be 18 and can get a license. I can’t wait.

2. Idol Watch

Vote Adam Lambert. That is all.

3. What I’m reading this week

51ynk-ze4wl_ss500_The Duchess by Amanda Foreman. I didn’t think it was a proper biography when I picked it up. I thought it was more along the lines  of The Lady Elizabeth by Alison Weir, which I adore by the way. Its more realistic (?) than The Lady Elizabeth. She sounds like a very interesting woman. I’m about a quarter of a way through and its good so far.
