Sometimes, all you want to do is pack your bags and leave. Go somewhere “peaceful”, “away”, “far from people”, “away from social media”, “just me and myself”, “just the two of us”. etc. I am kind of in that space right now. I wish we could just go somewhere tonight, even if for just two days. But some place beautiful. I have a feeling every Delhiite is going through this – all of us are living in a gas chamber and the moment you look outside from your balconies; you feel this sense of helplessness. Is there no escape? Why do we have to deal with this year after year? November used to be the most pleasant and beautiful months at one point of time, actually not even that long ago. just 6-7 years ago, I think.
Anyway, I have Kashmir to visit in December. That is going to be a beautiful experience, must think just about that and ignore this smoggy evening; evening after evening. This reminds me, I need to zero in on the properties and make a proper plan of action. Me and my husband, we are not “travellers”, and we are not at all good at making a planned trip! But this time, we are going out of the city after what seems like ages, literally. And I do not want it unplanned this time. Right now, I need to feel sorted and only solid plans help you feel more confident. So Srinagar, Pahalgam and a night in the houseboat. I don’t know how cold it is going to be, it is going to be snowing for sure because it is the end of December. It’s going to be a white Christmas for us, our 5th wedding anniversary. ❤
