Travel Diary: Lataguri Forest Resort.





















Last weekend, I went away to the forest. 

And it was wonderful. I spent three days in the middle of nowhere. With trees. Sounds of birds. With a cool breeze. With green grass. With tranquility. With peace. It was wonderful to get away from city sounds and city fumes. 

I went there with my family and two sets of uncles and aunts. We laughed and talked and reminisced. We told ghost stories. We gossiped. We talked of grand-uncles and grand-aunts. We talked of family history. 
We ate. We drank. And we took in our surrounding. We made friends with the friendly stray pups. We ate simple but delicious Bengali food. I sat on the swing and swung hard. God, I hope I am never old enough to not enjoy the simple joy of a swing! We had a wonderful time! 

These pictures are of The Silver Ridge Forest Resort in Lataguri- a forest area in North Bengal. Lataguri is very close to my hometown. A mere hour or so away. I have in the past drive by and seen the forest in passing. But this time we got to stay there and experience the joy of living in the woods. At night we could hear owls hooting. Crickets chirping. In the mornings we heard a peacock coo, sadly, we didn't get to see her :(  

It was really cold but we were comfortable and cozy. My sister and I took long walks and even made friends with some very hungry goats! 

It was a lovely weekend.
