This trip is special, rather the juncture at which it happened is special because it immediately happened after I had quit my job. I had quit on Monday and we started for the trip on Wednesday, all in quick succession so that I didn't have to think much about my decision. Add to it, it was a family trip so everyone was involved and not pissed with me going alone.
Day 0 - A Better Start
Needless to say, we were all excited and as well as scared because we had booked our tickets in PDY BBS EXPRESS (12897). Any train which runs on East Coast would gives our family creeps because they had experienced the worst while returning from Puri in a train which comes from Bhubaneshwar. It was so damn crowded with literally no space to even keep our foot. But this time it wasn't, may be because it was a weekly train and starts from Pondicherry. Also, the timings were comfortably late so that everyone could reach there easily on a long weekend. Actually, it wasn't really like a long weekend, maybe it was just a national holiday and not a festive holiday.
