  1. Still living in my home town I don’t get to appreciate nostalgia quite this way, but sometimes I’ll go to my old childhood home and it’s mildly magical. Looks like you had a lovely time 😊

    1. Cleave to this solace then, love. It is a bittersweet experience like no other to leave a place you love and belong to. Thank you for the words, and yes, seeing a part of Adi’s life (that took place even as we were dating) was so special. Have a good week. xx

  2. What a wonderful nostalgic visit! It’s always great to relive past fond memories and revisit old friends. The story of the woman washing her car was a bit naughty though ;-p – Neek

    1. Merci Tracey! I always wonder what it would feel like since I have never studied in such a campus. Well, it is okay to soak it up vicariously I suppose πŸ™‚

    1. So you know then what is coming next. Why but Old Salem πŸ™‚ A field trip would have done it justice. We had a few hours at hand and most of it was spent waiting for food there. xx

      1. Ah! looking forward to read about it on your blog and viewing the photos as well. I seem to have lost all the photos taken there .I was actually chaperoning a group of school kids and it was fun with hands-on science activities and demonstrations throughout the historic town of Salem . I remember they had some really good baked stuff .

      2. See, now that is something I missed out on. A scientifically-minded exploration of Old Salem. I have a few photos to rejog your memories of it. The baked goodies had my juices flowing! xx

  5. I love reading this post, A! Reunion and memories beautifully captured in the pictures. Hmm shortest of shorts, now this is scaring me. My son’s going off to uni in 2 years-time and oh my… Adi must have enjoyed his stay at that campus. It looks peaceful and fun at the same time.

    1. Hey Amor, that is going to be bittersweet for you as a mother. The babe is ready to fly out it seems. My mother resisted it initially. My brother studied in a boarding school, you see. When it was my turn after college to pursue higher studies, she was loathe to see me go. But I had to. She wonders even now how things would have turned out if I had stayed back home.

      So I kind of get your heart quailing at the thought of your son setting off for uni. He will be fine. On the bright side, you still have two full years to pamper him. πŸ™‚ xx

      1. Oh some things are just inevitable, like this one, I guess. Your mum’s strong. Mine too. Hopefully I’d be like them when the time comes. πŸ™‚
