Hey there Posse Peeps, Today we arrived in Shillong, Meghalaya, India. I’m really sorry this post is late. I thought I had set pieces for every day of my holiday and missed Thursday. So here is a voice from the heights of deep dark India.
Shillong, Meghalaya, INDIA!
Shillong is a hill town in the north east of India. Well, I say little but it’s freaking ridiculously HUGE!! Varun was surprised by the sheer enormity of humanity packed into such a hilly environment. We drove here from Guwahati in Assam. It was a 4 hour drive with some spectacular scenery. We only stopped once for photos but they give a really splendid idea of how fabulous the journey was.
Here are Varun and I from the lookout. It’s so misty up here and the rain has been like a soft drizzle. It’s beautiful to walk in.
The view from our hotel. We picked the second best rated here but actually it’s pretty shit. Right in the heart of town. Varun was hoping for a mountain eerie with panoramic views, Nope. To cap it off their hot water generator is broken and we are bathing from buckets. VERY Indian experience. I’m loving it but Varun is a hotelier so he sees the mechanics of hotel staying, not the adventure.
We walked this morning at around 5am for two hours around the town. My favourite pic is of this magnificent dahlia hedge. I was around a lake area set aside for morning ambulations.
I know you’re dying to know. What fragrance accompanied me upon my travels so far? Miss Dior vintage parfum. Yes, again Miss Dior has become my fragrance of choice for holidaying. There is something so utterly luxurious about it, and also so perfectly other. It elevates every experience into the realm of saga. Try Surrender To Chance for a sample, you’ll be blown away.
Most of your Summer Holidays will be over now. Are you planning your next one yet? Where to?
