How would you react if one fine day when you are on your leave from office your friend calls you up and tell you about a fabulous plan of trip to Munnar and that too a road trip..your first ever Roadtrip!
Shocked. Confused. Super excited. Happiness. Finally a little bit of freedom from the boredom of office life, I thought! Instantly I said "Yes" to his proposal and packed my bags that night. I was literally counting hours for the trip to begin with wide open eyes which was filled with excitement to explore the unseen. My exhausted life badly needed an escape to some beautiful place where I could sit quietly, be lost, feel each and every moment of it and ask myself who I am and what I actually want from life and trust me guys I found my answer. This friend of mine was truly an angel in disguise in my life.
The trip was all unplanned and as we all know "Sudden plans are always the best plans". It happened to be the best trip one can ever have in life. We 6 people started our journey in a Xylo and hit the road with an aim to reach Bangalore in 28 hours and took the NH 16. The route was : Kolkata-Bangalore-Munnar
You know the best and the most beautiful thing about a road trip is you can feel and enjoy every single things that comes in your way, every moment is like an adventure. You can go high with the highway, sing your heart out with all the travelling songs and all your favorite songs, stopping your car midway and dance like crazy with the tunes, having your lunch, dinner and breakfast in the dhabas passing by, the blue sky and the black roads, the mysterious nights where you need to drink hell loads of chai and coffee to stay awake to drive and head towards your destination, the windows down, the cool breeze, the green mountains which you see when you enter Vishakhapattanam and your endless talks and laughter which is the best part of any journey, you get to know your friends more better and create memories that you will cherish forever. Oh! and the petrol pumps which becomes your one and only savior when the nature called! The journey itself is the most magical part of a road trip and mostly when you share it with some crazy people.
