My Solitude And Vacation Away From Busy Life


My Solitude And Vacation Away From Busy Life

I went to Coorg for a 3 day vacation two weeks back and of course this is a delayed post 🙁 . I am right  now on an office tour, n was struggling to write! Let me show you peace during my solitude and vacation away from busy life.

My Solitude And Vacation Away From Busy Life

We stayed in one of these cottages in a coffee estate. The cottages were made of Malaysian wood and were ooh so beautiful! The whole place was so serene that I feel short of words!

This is no famous waterfall but a stream flowing from the coffee estate where we stayed. I had fun watching greenery, nature and wild life all around.

P.S – Don’t expect more pictures , remember I said it was a solitude trip!

The best place about this cottage stay in Coorg was that my phone did not have signals! Phew it was such a relief, 2 days no phone calls, no emails, no internet, no phone , naaaathing ! Although on way from Bangalore to Coorg, I did reply to a few emails hiding from friends 😛 . N also I had a small chit chat with IWB team about how is it going 😉 . IWB is my baby, can’t stop thinking about it even if I am away, from people …from my busy life.. BTW, IWB just completed 1000 posts, I can’t thank IWB team and readers enough!

Coming back to the topics, this trip was way different than all my vacations. I had no intentions to hop around  places. I just wanted to freeze for 3 days.. unmoved … unreachable! It was raining most of the time, I managed to take a few pics when the weather was clear!

I have a maddening life.. a hectic job, 2 hours travelling time daily due to crappy traffic, IWB and continuous struggle to lose weight. Busy week days and busier weekends are a story of my life. This vacation was much needed break to reflect my thoughts .. my self!

If you are too stressed and wish to take a break – only 2 tips will work –

One – take a vacation ,a non-stressful to be precise! If you plan a fun trip to Goa, you would need 1 more vacation once you’re back to neat the vacation stress 😛

Two-take off and stay at home. read books, cook , don’t bath, be lazy – do what ever you want. I have tried this a lot of times, doesn’t work for me. The greedy me wants to finish as much work as possible if I am off from office, lol. My kind of breed cannot stay away from phone or laptop until forced. So this holiday was chosen but forced solitude for me 😛

I ate bread, rice, daal everything that was available without a second thought. I had Glucon D biscuit dipped in hott chai, awesomenesss! Somehow I had been so occupied in the last few years, it seemed I forgot to breathe. This vacation was a breeze , oooh I would love to do it again, over and over again !

I am writing this post only to inspire you to take a break from your busy lives. If not for a few days, take a day’s break and live as if there’s no tomorrow!
