A trip to Nandi Hills…

08 Jan

On the first Saturday of 2009, I had been to Nandi Hills, a place 45 kms from Bangalore! No had not gone for trekking or any adventure, but just like that to enjoy a ride up the hills! 🙂


Loved the journey along the straight never ending roads…


The Nandi hills from way down….the only way was up…


I think (s)he was expecting me and recognized me nevertheless! 😛


This is what I got to see from up above the hills…a lovely sight! 🙂


And yay! Thats me there not knowing what to do…so smiling! 😉


This is an old temple up there on the hills, made entirely of stone!! 🙂


It had been a long time since I played in a park…Here I am on a See-Saw with my niece Anisha…as a reflection of how the situation in life is, am way down on the ground!! 😉


Up and away on the swing…my head is between my feet, now what can I say…it always is! :mrgreen:

All in all, I had a great time re-visiting my childhood in this “under 12 only” park!! 😉 How can I get matured beyond 12 yrs? Ever!! 😉


As I was going down the hill, couldn’t resist taking this shot again wherein a couple stand and watch the scenery…probably dreaming their future together… 🙂
