Telly couple Nandish Sandhu and Rashmi Desai took a break from their grinding schedules and visited Canada last month. The two had loads of fun on their 'unofficial honeymoon'. Nandish talks to CS about their Canadian sojourn:
We were staying in Stilwell on the outskirts of Ottawa. It was a leisure trip and we just wanted to relax. Stilwell is located in the countryside, and we were expecting cold weather but the place turned out to be hotter than Mumbai! Thankfully, my aunt's house had a swimming pool.
Fell for Niagara
We visited Niagara Falls, which was an amazing experience in itself. A rafting expedition, a casino tour and a visit to the haunted house were the other activities we indulged in. At Niagara, we took the Maid of the Mist boat ride that takes you closer to the falls. We were actually just next to the falls -incredible! There's a lot to do in and around Niagara Falls. We binged at the yummy restaurants in the vicinity.
Since Canada is famous for its jackets and cheese we have picked up on a lot of them. We also purchased souvenirs for family and friends. I enjoy cooking so I bought a lot of exotic ingredients, cheese and sauces for my kitchen. We gave the nightlife a miss as we do a lot of it in Mumbai.
Rashmi loves water but can't swim well. So, she was making a zillion excuses to skip the rafting expedition that my cousins and I had planned. Finally, we lied to her, and took her to the spot forcefully. Every time there was wave, Rashmi would be the first one to duck down. But after we were done she was the happiest of all.
