WOW,I was flying like a cloud,among the clouds,both literally and figuratively. Smiles were written on the faces of our whole family. We reached Port Blair at 07:10 am. I could not believe my senses.
We left the Guest House and reached the Airport. Bidding Bye is really the toughest part of any journey, but we had to. You start belonging to the place you visit. You feel a strange bonding. As our Air India flight took off, and we touched the clouds, we left the lovely islands below, wondering if we would be able to make it again. But the sweet memories shall always remain etched in our hearts.And before I wind up, this sojourn, I would like to reproduce a beautiful quote which I read:“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” ― Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It.
