And phew! It was back to the love of my life (aka my Bed & Blankie)! It was a short trip but so relaxing and a trip away from the laptop and the world (although constant Instagramming was happening!). We’ll be back next week with the last post of the Ooty Travel series with our haul! Do comment, share, subscribe and don’t forget to spread the love!

Until later!
