The lure of Udagamandalam

A while ago I got a mail from that they like my blogs and invited me to be a member of their community. The current contest promises the winners...

The prize for the contest includes:
2 nights/3 days accommodation for two people
15% discount on food and beverage
15% discount on spa treatment from Kairali health ayurveda

Oh! I read it and simply wanted to participate. All it takes is write about them and link to your blog! That's it !!

Now they want to know why I want to go to

It's been 5.5yr in Bangalore and I am yet to go to Udagamandalam or Ooty. Due to some reason have not been there yet. As a naughty Mumbai kid Ooty was always part of a threat, parents boomed "You will go straight to Lovedale, if you misbehave." That was to invoke the fear of boarding schools.
Seen it in so many movies now want to see it in real.

While in the dreams Ooty was the queen of hill stations. If I win this contest I want to go to Nahar's and pamper my self with some wellness treatments. I'll do the chocolates, the toy train and turn the hands of the clock in the botanical garden back to the old days. I will enjoy Ooty which seems to be this alluring place ever since the last three decades. Plus winning this contest will make the stay special!

Hi Anon

Thank you, it would have helped to have this comment on spotandtell! You would have helped me win :)

Yeah travel is one of my loves and have done Kerala, Karanataka, Bengal, Sikkim, a bit of Gujarat and UP

In Tamil Nadu I have traveled only to Chennai and Vellore. I so want do it now especially while I am still based in the south.

Also I tend not to go to standard tourist places. So Ooty was always marked for later. Hope this will be the chance!

I was lucky to find this website.
It was a valuable workout for me to go through your webpage. It definitely stretches the limits with the mind when you locate very good advice and make an effort to interpret it properly. I am going to review this web site ofttimes on my PC. Thanks for sharing
