Drive through Port Louis:

The guide says that driving offences attract astronomical penalties with driving points reduced and hence no traffic problems whatsoever ever.

My Itinerary 2015 - Base U.S.A. Highlight South Caribbean Cruise

Vacation Trip 2015:

The nominees are/were(since our last trip to Mauritius in 2013): Australia and New Zealand, Spain, a cruise on high seas

- And the winner is ....8 Night Southern Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral, Florida, U.S.A.

Ship: Carnival Valor Cruise Line: Carnival Cruises Departs: Port Canaveral, United States Returns: Port Canaveral, United States Sails: Saturday, Apr 4, 2015 Ends: Sunday, Apr 12, 2015.

Well, that was what was decided by the two grandie sons in U.S.A. and one grandie daughter here in India with us. And so it is.

Arrival Atlanta 02 April 2015 early morning. Departure from U.S.A 17 May 2015

Oh! The flight tickets and the cruise were booked by mid-January, the flight by the second daughter here - not a free flight anyway. We two oldies have paid for it - and the cruise by the first daughter there - and we - me and my wife - have to pay her USD 1360 for that though she won't demand it :) and may not accept it also.

The cruise will take us to Orangestad, Aruba ( 7th April for nine hours),Kralandijk, Bonaire (8th April eight hours) and Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos (10th April eight hours). So we will be on land only for about 25 hours in all during the seven days.

Before I started this thread in March 2012, we had visited U.S.A in 2011 and at that time we had a four or five day cruise to the Bahamas on Carnival Fascination. At that time we embarked at Jacksonville but this time we will be travelling further down to Orlando. We may visit Tampa Bay - a name familiar to me. I used to do speed test from Tampa Bay servers. :) - and St.Petersburg. Last time it was St.Augustine.

Nostalgia - a drive into memory lane

The destination:

Puducherry also known as Pondicherry - a former French colony ceded by France in 1954 to become part of the Indian Union

My itinerary - vacation trip-a06-06-2015-02-00-06.jpg

As we enter the Puducherry state - it enjoys special statehood alongwith other former French enclaves in two other states Kerala and AndhraPradesh

My itinerary - vacation trip-a1100_4734.jpg

for a mile along the road is the huge campus , Jawaharlal Institute of Post-Graduate Medical Education and Research - JIPMER.

My itinerary - vacation trip-b06-06-2015-02-17-27.jpg

Driving along it always brings back the memories of the past not only to me but to my wife too. This is where I started my career in the Electro-Physiology Laboratory in 1969 and this is where my wife spent five to six years till 1972 studying medicine. ( When I was there, she was in her third year but I didn't know her till we got engaged in 1972. I had left JIPMER in 1970 and had moved on to Defence R&D in Karnataka - from Ministry of Health to Ministry of Defence. But all my relatives still believe it was a love marriage and I hooked her when I was in JIPMER. It was an arranged marriage but they refuse to believe. )

This is where we stayed on 03/04 April 2015 - World Golf Village Renaissance St.Augustine Resort, Florida, U.S.A.

This is where we stayed on 03 to 05 June 2015 - Hotel Coramandal Heritage, Puducherry.

No, it is not my birthday celebrations but the wedding of my cousin brother's grand-daughter that took us there.

And then we return on 05 June 2015 after a flying visit to my native village some 20 miles from Pondicherry after the wedding.

"The cruise to Aruba, Bonaire and Grand Turk to follow." And so ended my post #26. Its almost a year now and I am still searching for the photos . Hope I would locate those in the next few days and before my next trip.

When I listened to and posted the Violin song from a 2013 Telugu film on "What are you listening to?" on 05 Feb 2016 ( Page 100, post# 1000 Ha! reads nice 100 and 1000. Is in't it?) I was just wondering where it could have been shot? No need to search. Here it is.

Hmm... I got the answer only a few days back when my daughter announced " Listen and get ready, I have booked our tickets to Spain,( Madrid and Barcelona) 31 May 2016 to 12 Jun 2016." So we were looking at Spain on TV/youtube and it at once became evident to me that the song was shot in Spain.

OK, Spain was on our radar even last year. This year also various other european countries were considered and there was a lot of discussions going on on Skype between my two daughters, before Spain was clinched. Promotional Air Fare by Qatar Airways got it. And so here is my itinerary for the year 2016.

Bangalore ( India ) >>>> Doha (Qatar) >>>> Madrid (Spain)

Dep: 0340hrs 31 May 2016 0510-0710 Stop-over Arr: 1345hrs 31 May 2016

Barcelona ( Spain ) >>>> Doha (Qatar) >>>> Bangalore ( India )

Dep: 2335hrs 10 Jun 2016 0710-1910hrs Stop-over Arr: 0150hrs 12 Jun2016

(Hope to see a bit of Doha too since we have a 12 hour stopover there on the return leg.)

Where all we will go in Spain, where we will stay etc., are still under research but one thing is sure: My 70th birthday will be in Spain.
"The cruise to Aruba, Bonaire and Grand Turk to follow." ( Hope to keep my word this time. :))

8 Night Southern Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral, Florida, U.S.A. 04 April 2015 - 12 April 2015:

Driving from Atlanta on 03 April 2016, we interned at the World Golf Village Renaissance St.Augustine Resort, Florida for the night. Since the resort does not offer complimentary breakfast, we had packed some Bagels and burgers on the way.

Day 1: On 04th morning we just loitered around the resort till 10 A.M. and then drove to Port Canaveral. We were on board Carnival Valor by 1 P.M. and then rushed for the sumptuous lunch.

Day 4:After two days at sea, we disembarked at Aruba on 07th April 1 P.M. We had 9 hours at our disposal till scheduled departure at 10 P.M.

Aruba: Titled as the emerging Destination of the Year 2015 that mid-year ( we were there even before it got titled so :) ) Aruba is famed for its sunny weather, turquoise waters and white beaches.

When we got out, we straightaway got into one of the many tourist buses awaiting to make business with the arriving tourists. Though Aruba has developed in many spheres, tourism remains the main stay of the economy and the arriving cruise liners is the main source of income for many.
