Globe trotting post marriage

It's been hardly three months since I got married, and I'm already half way around the globe. First trip was a 7 day Mauritius tour. This was one of the most if not the most exotic holidays I've ever been to.
Five start hotels, cozy cottages, resorts, what not !

A few weeks later we were in Chennai, for what? any guesses? US Visa of course..
Stay in Ginger Hotel, beaches, movies, Shatabdi express and the most happy moment of all: Visa approval – A weekend well spent

USA trip: Another couple of weeks pass by, and we head half way across the globe to Boston. Deepthi had a tough time convincing her managers to get her leaves approved though.
And the planning begins, we virtually spent every weekend doing something or the other – Here's a quick list of stuff we did — Boston Night out, Strawberry picking, 4th of July celebration at Charles river, Niagara falls and Thousand Islands, Nascar Cola Cola Sprint Cup, Bon Jovi concert at Patriots place, Boston Tomatino, 5k Mud run, Kayaking on the Concord rivers, hiking at Bash Bish falls, Cliff walk at Newport and of course lots of shopping.

Canada trip: We went to Toronto to meet my brother and his family. Another fun filled 4 days we spent in Toronto.

a lot of activities planned ahead..
