First time I was going for a full week trip in the mountains to a magical place with Safarnama.
This trip was a Group trip + a Solo trip too for me. After a long wait, departure day came and it was like all the bad things happening on this day like stopping me from the trip, weather got rainy when I woke up so didn’t go to office, then some water issue came at home and some other few these type of issues at home. But finally, in the evening I got ready to reach the departure point (Majnu ka Tila) to catch Volvo. It was a group trip with strangers so met the travelers at Bus stand. It was the first time, there were 5 doctors in our group. After some time, Bus arrived, and we had taken our seats for a week-long journey.
It was Volvo Bus from Laxmi Holidays, it was comfortable for long travels
