Thanks very much for the suggestions.
We have decided to go to two destinations for five days each for the vacation – Bali and Binsar. I guess Bali doesn’t need much explanation. Binsar (Uttarakhand) came up because of two reasons: I had some Club Mahindra days that were expiring, and I also wanted Abhishek to experience an India vacation. Binsar was one of the few ClubM properties that I could get a booking at, so decided to go there.
So, quite a change. Just a few weeks ago, we were planning a 10-day visit to California, and now this. It will be different because much of this will be a “do-nothing” vacation – just relax. That is something which is a rarity on my busy vacations!
