Weekend Trip - GRS Fantasy Park

On Tuesday, Father In Law told that they want to goto Mantralaya but they can't go this time as no one is there to look after the house and tuffy. Sowmya and I had asked them to go ahead and leave all house responsibility to us. On that promise they tried to get a train, bus or what ever the transportation to possible Mantralaya on whole Wednesday and Thursday. Till Thursday evening nothing was finalised and they had almost dropped their plans. That made us to go ahead with our trip plans.

It was a long weekend. Wanted to go out somewhere, desperately. We all (jukka, roopakka, shilpa, sowmya) started planning on Thursday evening. After half an hour of discussion and telephonic calls, it was almost decided that we go to Ooty and Black Thunder water park for 2 days. At the n th moment I got a call from my Father in law saying that they got the tickets to Mantralaya and requested us (Sow and me) to stay home to take care house and the their dog, tuffy. Tussssssssssssss.... our plans got dropped for that moment ..

Atleast we wanted to go out for a day. Every one was ok with that and we decided to goto GRS Fantassy Park, Mysore. I booked
Tempo Traveller (TT). Our whole family went for that. Amma, Sowmya, myself, Roopakka, Bhava, Shilpa, Yashu, Jukka, Bhava, Gowri and Bhargav. We were 11 in total. Our trip started at around 6:30. Sowmya and I had come from my in-law's house. We were little late. More over we had to prepare tomato-onion gojju (kind of curry ). Jukka and Amma had prepared, Chapathis, Puliyogare and Curd Rice. TT came to roopakka's house in Wilson Garden at 6. They were all ready and came to our place which is around 7 KM at around 6:20. We joined the troupe at 6:30 and started.

We took a break at Maddur to eat Maddur Vade and also had break fast there itself. The place we went to buy maddur vade was crowded like hell. Ussshappa...


Allinda .. we went to a Sai Baba Ashram on the banks of river Kaveri, on the main road itself. It was amazingly calm appealing .. Here are some snaps ..
