The last three weeks were very interesting. The whole wedding, reception, honeymoon and then getting back home and setting it up for post-marital life was both fun and exhausting. Overall I am happy with all the changes, it is a lot less scary than what I had thought it would be. Anyways, before moving ahead; here is a pic of the “couple”.
We had been to Wayanad in North Kerala for our honeymoon. We stayed at a place called “Vythiri Resort”. I got to tell you, Vythiri was awesome :-).
One needs to go on the Mysore-Calicut highway and take a cut into the jungle near the Vythiri village. About 4 kms into the jungle is the 150-acre resort.
After you get into the resort and sign up at the reception, you get into the main resort area by walking past the hanging bridge. Now this is awesome.
It has all the usual “resorty” elements like cottage homes
dining area, the food is super-delicious by-the-way.
Spa, indoor-games hall, basket ball, tennis court etc. They have designed the whole place very well. From each room one will get a feeling that their’s is the only room in the whole resort. Also the view from each room is great! Natural elements are preserved and kept intact in the resort. For example there is a (small) river flowing around the resort, which can be seen from each and every cottage. The flowing river sound is prevalant throughout the day. That makes the stay very relaxing.
The most interesting part of our stay at the resort was the “tree house”. It is, well, a house built on top of a tree.
I had never seen or been in a tree-house. I have to say that it is a cool concept. Although the house is on a tree (primitive), the inside looks quite polished. You have some basic lighting, better-than-usual bathrooms, a nice big bed, wonderful view of the forest.
It was a very nice place. Good time spent away from the usual city-life, very quite, very relaxing and a great way to start life with your partner. We had a great time.
I think one should go to this resort atleast once. The “Vythiri Team” (as they would like to call themselves) are trying to pitch the resort experience to corporates. They are transforming the place a bit here and there to attract companies and have them organize outings there. The resort actually has conference rooms!
Anyways, after coming back from the trip we had yet another pooja.
With that, Nandini and I officially became a married couple.
Now back to work. FOSS.IN is starting from tomorrow. I hope to be there atleast for Day #1.
