Ooty Photo Diary

I wrote a post about Ooty before but I'm not going to link it here because I'm not particularly proud of it. I keep going back there because it is one of my favourite places to visit. It is a much smaller town than Bangalore, yet doesn't make me feel like I'm so far away from civilization. It's much quieter and life is slower and that's what I love most. I can easily forget about everything when I'm there.

Set in the Nilgiri Hills of Tamil Nadu, Ooty provides an escape unlike any other. With spectacular views, clean, fresh air, and tea estates all around, this is the ultimate getaway in my books. Not to mention the abundance of pine trees and cold air that I would prefer over sunshine any day!

The sucky part of the trip was that my camera battery died on the way there. I had to rely on my phone alone so all of the pictures featured in this post were shot on my phone camera. All I can say is "I am so grateful for that software update that brought the battery save option! I cannot imagine life without it!"

Also, this trip happened way back in October which just goes to show how much I'm lagging behind with my blog posts. Blame it on real life and the taxing life that I live that involves waking up at 2pm and watching movies up until 4am with short breaks in between to order food. It's stressful. Don't judge me.

November Playlist

The only thing I remember from November (even though it was literally 7 days ago) are beaches and sunshine and heat and that's because I was holidaying by the sea. That post is coming up soon. I hope. No promises.

As for music, I general prefer mellow indie tunes when I'm by the sea. Something to go with the flow of the waves and something that goes against the blazing sun. Here are my top 6 most played songs from my holiday.
