    I have uploaded all the pics in Google (Picasa) & made the album Public but still the pic posted in the above post is not visible!
    Why??
    I think you posted the link directly from the address bar. Right click on the pic and select copy image url. It should come like this
    [https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-N...7_resized.jpg]. Put it in the [IM G] format here.

    SEXY BHAINS KI AANKH!!! I didn't do that way. I used the option of "Link to this photo" in picasa but still got problem. Your idea is much better & it worked!!
    Thanks a lot bro!!

    I reached Kalka station at 10:15 AM & waited for my wife to arrive. Her train arrived at 11:40 AM. Exchanged greetings & hugs & we started our journey towards Kasauli. The entire route to these hilly areas are very scenic. There was steep incline at one section & there I couldn't go beyond 3rd gear. My bike performed exceptionally well considering that it was carrying quite a lot of load. Took few breaks en-route to Kasauli.

    Beautiful roads

    Awesome flowers... this tree was found almost on the entire stretch

    We reached Kasauli at 2:30 ish. Located our place of stay which was a Northern railway guest house (courtesy my FiL). Kasauli is a cantonment town & quite peaceful. The place where we stayed was quite good. It had few schools nearby & 2 churches. In the afternoon, I noticed kids returning to their respective homes happily.

    few pictures from the place of stay

    View from Balcony




    This tree was right next to the guest house & had some pretty flowers in it




    The convent school bell


    Kids after school hours







    We then took a rest for couple of hours & then went to the nearby mall road of Kasauli. It isn't as big & crowded as Shimla & thus, quite enjoyable.



    Ladies have to visit shops wherever they go


    Some unique garden hangings...






    Cute bird looking out for some food to grab



    Sparrow perched on a wire




    It was quite cool out there. So, what's better than to have a cup of tea with some pakoras! Wife was pretty relaxed out there...



    Birdie watch


    We finished off the awesome tea & pakoras & headed for walk as the wife complained "tum toh photography hi kartey raho... baat kab karoge?" (you keep on doing photography... when will you chat with me) I thought of saying that we were married now, we are always with each other, what can we talk about? but wisely, I held my thoughts within

    We reached other side of the market & boy, what a beautiful sunset we could see



    It felt like god is painting these colours onto the vast canvas of sky...





    Photography resumed but wife wasn't complaining either







    What a maintained LML scooter

    promised my wife that will do some shopping... "Sacchi??" (really?)


    .... and thus begun shopping for table mats & other stuff




    The market looks quite good in the night too


    As the time went by, we started feeling the hunger pangs.... so headed off to a restaurant in the market & ordered food. Apparently, Kasauli doesn't have many food joints & market is the only place where you can expect some decent food.



    Disregard the T Shirt please


    ...and disregard the flat tummy too




    Went back to the guest house & had our food (got it packed). Even at 8:00PM, Kasauli gets very quite as if there are no human settlement. It;s one of the most peaceful places I have been too. There are monkeys but far lesser than the nos. in Shimla.

    Nobody is interested...

    Well, let me complete the log & be shut up then.

    Day 2: We left Kasauli for Chail. Chail is about 40-50 kms from Kasauli.

    Day break photo


    new Mango leaves....


    Deodhar leaves from a distance





    beautiful flowers..


    I had a very bad shoulder ache since I left Delhi but it got aggravated in Kasauli. Had to visit local medical centre for some help. Around the medical centre....




    At a distance...


    People waiting at the medical centre. Notice that it was established by quite some time back...



    back to the kasauli market for one last time






    Now... pics enroute to Chail. Few of them but mountains/hills have always fascinated me..



    Miyan & Biwi...

















    waiting at a Railway Fatak...



    here comes the TOY rain






    Now, I have been to Sadhupul, Kandaghat 3 years ago with my friend. He was riding his bullet. I wanted to remember those days again, we had camped one night on the River Bed (well, river has translated into stream now)

    Pic of me crossing the stream to explore the other side where I had been few years ago


























    This place is famous for people doing picnic on the stream. Said good bye to the place & moved on

    1 Serious Query: How did you convince Wifey to take the train?

    Only asking as it would be a very vital 'Tourer Top Tip' .
    Advice is a form of nostalgia.
    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

    Hmmmmm.... antz. I must say quite difficult one & rubbished/trashed by many but I must say here that my wife has been one of my greatest supporter.
    She was a complete non biker girl before our marriage. The way she has taken this to her stride is nothing short of being philanthropic. She has endured many uncomfortable pillion rides (Mussourie, Jaipur, Patiala & this) not to mention daily ride to office (23 kms one way) in this gruelling heat (11:30 AM).
    I am most lucky to have a companion like her & may god give her strength & happiness.
