Indian railways aren't much fun, but once we reached 'Mettupalayam', the famous junction for every Ooty trip, we decided to cover the rest of our journey in a toy train! IT WAS THE BEST DECISION EVER.
50 kms & 5 hrs, not for once did I feel as if I got tired of the long journey. Once you put your head out of the window you feel the cool breeze stifling your hair & soothing your skin, waterfalls sprayed on the face & refreshed your soul. The smell was different, every breath relaxed you to the core. The train stopped at certain stations,these stations were special, scenic views & realisations were seen & felt profoundly.
Our long, refreshing journey ended the moment we finished our tea. Ooty aka Udhagamandalam was here, the resort town engulfed my soul & my mind, Nilgiris as absolute as they seem, whispered the hymn of the nature. Never expected it to be this beautiful. It was time to absorb it all & head to the homestay!.
Hollywood hills was our destination, a perfect place for a perfect homestay, provided by MakeMyTrip. Here was our haven for the next two days & I made a little friend there too. A kitten.
