I was away… in Kufri, Himachal Pradesh with Blogger Friends

Past few days were hectic, exciting and thrilling! I was away from blogging, from my virtual world into a real world with virtual friends who turned real! Sounds confusing?! Let me tell you straight. I was with several other bloggers far away from home, on a hill top! Ten bloggers from different parts of India decided to converge at Himalayas to give a new meaning to our association in virtual world.

Kufri was our world for the weekend! There was lot of voting and discussions before we decided to meet in Kufri, Himachal Pradesh. All of us assembled at Chandigarh on Friday (10th May 2013) and on 11th morning left for Kufri by road. Lot of singing, munching, halting, clicking, sipping tea and eating maggi noodles along the way… life seemed perfect! One particular halt due to rains is here: Unexpected joy watching rains in Solan.

I had not met any of the bloggers before this meet. We blog on different themes; me a travel blogger, there was a food blogger, yet another who blogged on feminist issues more… The entire thing was planned through mails and chats. Thanks to Hitchy for taking the initiative and coordinating the entire meet. Hope we will have more such meets!

    Indrani! This is absolutely great! I often wish to meet several bloggers who visited my blog, because I have the feeling that I know them already a bit. I met Dina from Israel, and Kay from Canada even twice. I also met Mara, who is Dutch but works now in Norway.It is realy wonderful to meet virtual friends in the real world! Very nice to read your post! Thanks for sharing.
