Quick Getaways for Couples In & Around Delhi | How I Celebrated My First 3 Anniversaries

18 Nov Cake from the hotel

I’ve been married for 3 years. THREE YEARS!

It’s been pretty amazing. Often, it’s been even more amazing than I imagined it would be. Obviously, everyone has their share of fights and differences, and I am glad to report that no life-shattering discrepancies and disagreements have shown up in 3 years of co-habitation. Phew! We both seem to have settled well into our unique Couple Rhythm (everyone has them) and while we are still figuring out “how to be good at marriage” one step at a time, we’re pretty calm and content most of the year. Which is the ultimate marriage aim, isn’t it? Calm & content, honey, let’s just focus on remaining calm & content.

While we have many-an-anniversary that passes every year (first time we met, the day he asked me out, our engagement), we choose to celebrate one with more than just a passing “Happy 5th January!”

thedelhibells Singapore aka honeymoon part 4

My husband & I left for Singapore the next morning after breakfast. We lost a couple of hours to the time difference, so by the time we landed it was already dark. The 2 hour flight delay didn’t help either. We reached our hotel at 11.30 pm, tired and hungry. So I quickly ordered for dinner in the room, and while we unpacked for the 3rd & last time on this trip, I made it amply clear to my husband that I wouldn’t be able to (read: flat our refused to) get ready at 8 am the next morning for the city tour. It may also have had something to do with the fact that I’d visited Singapore on a family vacation many years ago, so I decided I’d rather sleep in than end the honeymoon on an exhausted note.

The next morning, Continue reading

Read Part 1 & Part 2 to know how we began our honeymoon journey with Karva Chauth & a trip to Gold Coast.

We landed in Sydney at 8 AM and headed straight for the hotel. The check-in was uneventful, for which I was truly grateful. Yes, we’d requested an early check-in in advance! Lesson learnt! The hotel was nice Continue reading
