We are 5! But you are f9!

Exactly 5 years ago, I posted my firstΒ Hello World kind of post on this blog.Β 

Given my attention span of 0.38 seconds which has been scientifically calculated by flying to the moon and back, I’d assumed this was another one of those things I’d taken on which wouldn’t interest me much in the long run and be long gone. And here we are, growing old, everyday. We’re 5!

The Airbus A350 Formation 5!

Circa 2011, it was a passion for flying and a hobby, it still is. I still get excited as I close in on an airport to board another flight. So, I feel glad when I share the passion with all of you, help some of you plan your special trips, and meet some new astonishing people along the way (including my wife, who I met on a plane!).

All I have to say is, I’m humbled with the way all of you have come back ever so often to read all the stuff we write. We’re not perfect, but we do try and get better everyday! So THANK YOU for being the fine folks who bring the best out in us!

To celebrate the occasion with all of you, we’ve lined up some fabulous prizes for all of you, and we’ll be kicking off those contests to give away the prizes over the weekend!

Always Learning, Still here! Very Thankful!

PS: Thank you Airbus for the formation 5 picture!

    A similar question was asked to Rajiv Gandhi- the only good thing you did during your foreign studies was meeting Sonia and he replied: undoubtedly.
