Destiny Farm Ooty - April 2013

We wanted to head out somewhere during the summer holidays - with friends, somewhere close, for a short stay - preferably a resort where we could relax (or rather where the frequently travelling and slogging Dad could relax) and also get the kid to try new things. Had read about Destiny Farm in a FB group, checked it out, liked it, decided on a date, sent details to friends, friends agreed, booked and soon it was time to head there for 4 fun filled days - three families, 6 adults and 4 kids (all boys!!) - all together in a tempo traveller. So here's another picture post on the Destiny Farm holiday..

The tempo traveller - our vehicle for the looooonnnng trip...yes, took us all of 12 hours to get to Destiny Farm! And we expected around 8! Well, we did break for breakfast, lunch and an emergency hospital visit which thankfully was a false alarm!!

The beautiful view from our rooms. We had rooms next to each other and this big balcony all to ourselves - we used it to the fullest!!

We could fish in a small pond inside the resort. Our Dads were around to help us
