Was in Pondicherry for a family holiday last month. Pondicherry or Puducherry as it is called now, is a quaint little town tucked away on the Eastern coastline of India.
Palm-fringed beaches, pristine clear backwaters, the Aurobindo ashram, Auroville city, French heritage, the tree lined boulevards with Tamil signboards, French bakeries, stalls selling filter coffee and a surprising choice of restaurants serving a melange of cuisines, can best describe this town. So just scroll down for a photo tour of my vacation.
PS: Just realized all my outfits have floral/ paisley prints. This wasn’t intentional, but I guess when it comes to tropical climates, that is what my head thinks.
