Nostalgia-Vacation-Last winter

Mind set on a nostalgic mood.The mood gives rise to a nostalgic yearning for bygone simplicity Nostalgia, can be simply equated with with the remembrance of things in the past, or better understood as an abdication of memory. It makes the past a foreign country.

Today let me take you to our days of the last winter when we set on our lovely journey to South Coorg. Travelling is an experience in itself which we love to indulge always,but for our schedule....Travelling to Coorg has been one of our itineraries since long.We wanted to go into a wonderful journey into the thick tropical forests,myriad streams and waterfalls and miles of spice,paddy and coffee plantations in Coorg.

Coorg (Kodagu) in Karnataka in South India is a beautiful hill resort. Coorg is also known as the Scotland of India because of its hills, picturesque towns and mist covered mountains.We experienced the real flavor of Coorg amidst the greens staying in a heritage home ,called "The Jade" ,situated in the valley of Brahmagiri hill range. A true paradise for the holidayers, the beauty of this 170 year old Kodava home is retained without losing its charm and regality. You could look forward for an authentic experience of the culture, cuisine and hospitality of the Kodavas to the fullest. Close proximity to Nagarhole, Waynad and Iruppu falls makes your stay even more exciting.
