Kennedy: I was a Commerce Lecturer in Christ College, St. Joseph’s Commerce College and founder Principle of St Anne’s College in Bangalore. I love reading, some of my favorite authors are Fyodor Dostoevsky, Nikos Kazantzakis, Albert Camus, Hermann Hesse, Kahlil Gibran… I also like to travel and camp. When living in Melbourne, I did extensive camping tours visiting places like Ayers Rock, Coober Pedy, Margret Caves, Kings Canyon, etc. My travels around the world showed how families come together and enjoy holidays at reasonable cost. I want my guests to have enjoyable family experience. I have a manager who is from Ooty and will help in organizing local trekking trails, sight-seeing etc. Guna: I am a professional in the field of development and disability, I started my career as a lecturer in Holy Cross College- Trichy and presently I am Country Head of an international development agency. Along with my daughters, I enjoyed the freedom while travelling abroad in safe environment and accommodations. I want our guest house to be a safe place for sisterhood. A cozy nook for women only travel groups to chill whether married/ old/ unattached.
