To save ourselves from scorching heat of the south our family planned a 5 day summer trip to north India. The trip was a great surprise for me because I’ve never been to any place beyond my own state earlier in my life. I was really excited and counting my days as we planned for the most awaiting trip. We planned to travel through airways. That was like an icing to a cake because this was my first experience through air and I had great expectations.
Finally the end to my countdown and the day when I was going to fly in the air. We were at the airport 2 hours before our flight timings. It was a total new scenario for me. As soon as the clock struck 12 we boarded our flights. Unlike trains, airplanes had a systematic seating arrangement, perfect punctual timings as well as great hospitality. I was impressed by the way air hostess greeted us on our boarding. We were served delicious food and creamy coffee as the flight boarded. It didn’t take long for us to reach our destination. I had butterflies in my stomach as soon as the flight swooped down from the skies and landed on the pavement with a sudden jerk.
We were received by our close cousins on Delhi airport. The were overwhelmed to see us all because we met time for the first time in last ten years. We were welcomed with immense happiness to their place. After having a short conversation with them we were guided to our rooms where we got freshen up and had a nap before we can plan ahead on our vacation. Then around 7’o clock we were served dinner followed by a short get together with close families. Everybody was enjoying their time talking about the olden times.
The next morning we planned to see some of the great monuments like red fort, India gate etc. It was a way more better place than the south side as the temperature was low. Then we started visiting some worshipping places like mosque, temple and church. It was a soothing experience to be at such places close to god. The day ended with a dinner party at a sophisticated restaurant hosted by my Father’s brother. The other 3 days were almost similar to the first day with lots of shopping and great fun.
The trip ended with a pool party at their place. Then came the day of departure and we were back home safe and secure with great memories in our hearts. The trip was definitely one among my most memorable and unforgettable moments of my life. This made me believe in the great saying “The more the tours you go the happier you will be”.
