Hello again after my long break since last week!! How are you all, dear readers?! Are you still struggling to finish off the leftover turkey or have you already thrown in the towel? Perhaps, you didn’t celebrate with an American traditional dinner but instead threw yourself enthusiastically into the Black Friday-Cyber Monday sales?!
Oh, okay, you didn’t do any of it?!! Tsk tsk!! Well well, perhaps you had a more relaxed weekend than the rest, eh?!
However, why not join in to get, with minimal effort, a beautiful gift from British Airways as a useful and chic accessory for the long journey home?! Look at this beautiful piece that British Airways sent me to show to you!
Remember the Welcome of Home campaign and round trip ticket giveaway British Airways launched last month? British Airways reached out to Indian expatriates in North America and celebrated family as the heart of Indian culture with this powerful and emotional story reuniting Chitra with her grandmother, reminding us all what feels like to be welcomed home!
North America is home to close to three million Indian residents. A large proportion of these people have large extended families back in India and they travel back for family events, festive periods and special occasions. British Airways has specifically tailored service on flights from the US and Canada for passengers making the journey home to India. This includes warm personalized service by the crew, Hindu and Muslim meals, Bollywood movies, and even extra baggage allowance to accommodate the large number of gifts we usually carry back and forth!
And now, you can carry your stuff in style with some lovely bonus gifts included inside! Let’s look inside that gorgeous bag, shall we?!
What do I see…
And, do my eyes deceive me?!! No, it is…
And, finally, British Airways asked me choose a small something that reminds me of home. My mind of course went a million different directions, but since we just celebrated Diwali, with my feeble attempts at rangoli, I decided that this would be the perfect item to request!
Isn’t it absolutely beautiful?!
