Animals, Travel and us!

A casual chat about my love for animals with a colleague/ friend on instagram this afternoon made me think and reflect. I realized that animals were an integral part of almost all our trips. We either went to national parks to visit them , we bonded with the pets on the properties we stayed in , we ran into them on the highway( very rare) or we even visited them at the zoo ( when we had the time to spare, although this is our last resort, we hate seeing animals in captivity). With not much travel happening currently, I dedicate this blog to all the very many animal friends we have made. So sit back and enjoy these beauties!

Hrithik Roshan the camel @Jaisalmer!
Sweetu and Tuttu , the two mountain dogs @ Landsdown! We had spent just 48 hours with them, yet when we were leaving , these two ran along our car for a km ! This is what unconditional love feels like!
A Sambar deer en route to Sariska, peeping right into my window!! Me thinks he wanted a ride:-)
An eagle just perched on Anand’s hand – @ Kumarakom, Kerala!

The beautiful mountain dogs who stole our heart @ Gushaini – Bhalu, Bulbul and Gochu! They were our GPS during the trip. They led us into different trails in the forests around the Tirthan valley! Pure bliss!
