I was in my 6th standard last year, when we first went to Andaman Islands. My dad had given us a surprise by booking the tickets to Port Blair, but telling us of it at the nth hour. It was in deed a well kept secret, which he maintained till the last minute.
On 9th February,we were supposed to go to Chennai to board the Air India flight to Port Blair, but we did not know about it. On 8th February,he casually asked us to pack our bag for a week of vacation without telling us where we were going. We could not contain our excitement, but my dad was adamant not to reveal the cat out of the bag and that made us even more excited. He was determined not to tell us where we were headed to, till we reached Chennai.
