Excuse Me While I Kiss The Sky


Silent breeze blew my curtains,
And Santa knocked last night.
Granted me my travel wishes,
A lac for travel - car, hotel and flight.
With smile on my face and spirits high,
Excuse me, and I kissed the sky.

No elves, no reindeer,
He came with a wizard and its wand.
Pointed Skyscanner app on his phone,
Said - it will take me to places far and beyond.
With that, he bid me goodbye,
Excuse me, again I kissed the sky.


Dreamy beaches, ancient temples,
Being close to water tempts me.
Soaking my soul in a place,
Ripened with adventure and luxury.
With Bali my destination to fly,
Excuse me, while I kiss the sky.

Even with a lac of prize money, 
One has to be wise.
Eyeing for the best of deals,
And saving yourself from futile exercise.
SkyScanner rolled out lowest of prices to buy,
Excuse me, while I kiss the sky.

Here's how -
I savored every cent of my win.
Fetching best of flight deals,
Setting right foot to begin.
52,536 for flight tickets for two ain't high,
Excuse me, while I kiss the sky.


Stay close to pristine locales,
And some adventure underwater.
Skyscanner frisked all deals online,
29,601.54 for a luxury hotel is a great offer.
With breath-taking locations nearby,
Excuse me, while I kiss the sky.

Tens of sightseeing places, 
Beforehand we ought to arrange.
Rented a compact car,
For 12,800 and change.
With perfect itinerary, nothing will be at standby,
Excuse me, while I kiss the sky.

Building sand castle, surfing,
On Kuta Beach.
Shopping and a spa date in Seminyak,
And soaking my feet.
Relaxing as waves sing a lullaby,
Excuse me, while I kiss the sky.

A stop at various temples,
Titra Empul, Uluwata, Besakih, and Tanah Lot.
Spending a perfect evening at Sanur beach,
Watching sunset from a perfect spot.
Going to Ubud to chase butterflies,
Excuse me, while I kiss the sky.

Waking up late in my hotel in Nusa Dua,
Fun at Elephant Safari Park and Waterbom.
Lazy stroll on the streets,
Visiting Antonio Blanco and Pasifika Museums.
The crystal clear water of Blue Lagoon is to die,
Excuse me, while I kiss the sky.


Skyscanner compares, serves best, 
And this award winning portal is free.
With its magical algorithm, 
Great deal is a guarantee.
Skyscanner promises your joy to multiply,
Excuse me, while I kiss the sky.

This is how I planned a perfect vacation with Skyscanner and managed to save INR 5,000 for my next trip.
