That’s what Seema called us and why not ????Over the las tfew years , thanks to Nokia , we have travelled to Rome( and the great Ferrari Experience) and then with Jvr & Saraswati to Venice ,Florence & Dusseldorf.The following along with Jvr & his wife we visited Switzerland over a weekend before joining the Nokia events at Geneva and Monza ( and the great F1 Experience).Just before that we had gone to Montreal to be with Shirish for a week.Now for the first time on our own we were off to Helsinki,Stockholm and Copenhagen.
We left bright and early last Sunday night ensuring we travelled light with just a strolley each and a small carry bag and were among the firsty to check in .Imigration also went off smoothly and using thwe ICICI Priority Pass for the first time gain access to the Clipper Launge.We saw India lose badly to Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 50 overs cricket match but saw some scintilating tennisa from Federer and Nadal.We missed the end but came to know that Federer came back from a two set defict to level the match but eventually lost the 5th set 8:6.
This holiday was unique as my wife and I were on our own and had to fend for our selves outside of the vouchers the Travel Agent provided for us .We were free to plan our time and to utilize it well and manage in countries we thought would pose problems for us in speaking English.As it turned out we manged rather well and had a wonderful holiday .English was never a problem and all these places are extremely tourist friendly.
