The pool table in the Mess was the bub’s firm favourite…
A few weeks in, my parents visited us and we went to see Pahalgam and Srinagar with them.
We visited Chandanwadi which is where the Amarnath Yatra starts from, Pahalgam (and the famous Betaab Valley), Ashmuqam and the beautiful Aru Valley where I wish to go again but I don’t really have pictures from that day because I was sick whole day and rarely wanted to get out of the cab. 🙁
The next day we went to Srinagar where our first stop was the famous Nishat Bagh.
The bub though, loved playing with the water throughout the tour.
Rest of the days were spent just chilling around and soaking up all that nature had to offer, something not found in the city life.
And then after about two months, we returned home.
We got stuck here because of the incessant rains and then a major bout of cough and cold for both the bub and me. We are doing fine now but still not adjusted completely and miss the Soldier big time. We loved our time with him and the beauty of the place and hope and pray for all good things for everyone there. Kashmir will forever have a special place in our hearts.
