Roman Holiday

I just got back from one of my longest holidays taking in the sights of Europe. Italy… Switzerland… Paris… Amsterdam… London. I thought of all those who reside there and whose blogs I read regularly. I imagined seeing Colours on the streets of Brussels as I walked about. Not that we would recognize each other since she's never seen me and I had just glimpsed a one inch picture of hers with her dozen friends. In Switzerland, I thought of Boo when I saw a young Indian couple with a little girl in a pram. In London I was too busy meeting friends and trying to hide from clients who knew I would be there.
It was indeed a lovely vacation and am glad for having been able to see the works some of the greatest artists thatever lived and walk on the same streets as they did.

amikapil: Hey, that must have been wonderful! Amazing pics.Will take details from you before I make it there someday.

bluespriite: I did send them :)

upsilamba: Thank you so much but I feel like taking a break and sitting at home for some time. For it was a hectic holiday and am back to the rigorous work scene. Though of course then I will be sitting without a job too.

stone: Coming up.

rash: It was a good holiday. Pics coming up.

gaizabonts: Now that I think, I could have pinged you. But honestly didnt want to bother anyone. And it's not like you dont come to bbay but you havent ever pinged too...

shub: Arre, Egypt was one and a half years back! The thing is whenever we find even money to buy tickets we just go.

chakra: Somehow I wasnt sure anyone would really want to meet me. But yes, I have a lovely time. And next time definitely.

layon: Yes, I admit I am lucky, and I really thank god for making me so.

twilight fairy: When in Delhi I shall announce before I land there. You can't imagine the amount of stories I narrate straight out of your Finntimes, "you know my friend who was in Helsinki..." at every opportunity I get!!
