Aren't you excited to explore some best places in City of Dreams called Mumbai formerly known as Bombay?? Yes, of course I had this city on my list since a year and here I go finally accomplished my bucket list successfully on April 30th, 2019.
I travelled from Bangalore, Karnataka via Flight and it took almost an hour and 20 mins to reach the destination and explored few best places in a day at Mumbai. My trip to Mumbai was kinda planned well in advance to visit places with two of my friends but as we know life is very unexpected, a friend who is supposed to travel with me from Bangalore dropped off and that panic of me travelling alone to Mumbai that too late night was kinda adventurous as it was my first flight journey. However I had my childhood friend in Mumbai, a well wisher and a best motivator in my life who was a neighborhood as well, even though we hardly spoke, may be it was meant in destiny that we both have to travel together which was actually a biggest surprise for both of us,yet something new. This reminds me of a quote that keeps chanting in mind often - We don't meet and travel with anyone just like that, there's always a reason, A lesson or a blessing!!!!!!!!!
The very next day early morning we both went on sightseeing, yeah my wish to experience the train journey happened in Mumbai. The local crowd filled in train put me in shock though, I was observing each and every person in train as everyone looked very tired yet used to this mode of transport for their daily routine works.
After almost 2 hrs of journey in train from Diva Junction to CST, we planned to visit GOI which was my must visit place in Mumbai since years and we preferred to take Local Taxi's and Uber to travel locally in the city and it cost around 1.5k per day covering famous places in the city.
List of places I covered in a day -
- Gate Way Of India ( GOI)
- Elephanta Caves
- Marine Drive
- Girgaum Chowpatty
- Bandra–Worli Sea Link
Traveling is certainly a great way to gather short stories of each place during your journey.
