Our second wedding anniversary is getting closer now; and we are set for a vacation. Where do you think is the best place to go? We want somewhere romantic, of course, and since it will be on our wedding anniversary, I want it so special, to be in a paradise. Do you know that there is a place called the Island of Love?

I know that in organizing vacations like this, it is always better to deal with local agents from the place. They can always provide support and accommodate our concerns because they have the local knowledge advantage and the best vacation deals.

We have flown with different airlines but now we can fly to the island paradise by Air Tahiti for cheap fares. Everything is exotic.

It will make a perfect wedding anniversary gift.

That was where we stayed on my second time in Mumbai, in the lakeside chalet apartment. We had a very nice stay there in the apartment; the Marriott hotel compounds are lush with green and most of all, secured from the outside. There I met a fellow Filipina who has also been traveling with her husband. It was unexpected, and great. I took this picture during one of my tours yet again around Mumbai, the time when Madonna was there.

This was the hotel we stayed in Mumbai in 2006. Situated on Juhu beach, this was taken one afternoon along the shore where thousands of Indian passed their time. A silhouette of the hotel gave obscure view of the building painting.

A shot of the hotel. I liked how it came out, seeing the beautiful huge clouds and well, the sun, creating a little silhouette of the building. Some of the wall dirt were still clear, but I believed they had taken care of that long after we were gone, I hope so.
