This was one of the best and longest trips I have ever been to. I decided to write the experiences in details. Hence, will post the blogs day-wise per week.
Starting with Day 1 and before...
Finalizing Dates and Flight Booking:
Let’s start from the beginning, as always. We were planning this trip for a long time and, as always, the first hurdle was to finalize the travel date and book the flight tickets at the cheapest rate possible. I had heard about many sites/app where they provide you with information about cheap flights and you can book accordingly. Well, in our case, we were not that ‘lucky’. After a lot of thinking, we gave up the idea of finding the cheap flights and went ahead with the available ones for the finalized dates. First, we thought of planning the trip in 1st week of October, as we were getting 11 days of a trip if we take 5 days Leaves. But the sad reality was, like us, there were many others, who were doing just the same. And, as a result of that, the ticket prices skyrocketed! We settled for 21-29th September. Now, it was time to book the flights. We wanted to get it done with soon. Luckily, there was some offer going on in Amazon for flight booking. As a prime member, I got around 2000 INR cashback. Well, I must say, it was a good start!
After a lot of planning and bookings (and some fights in office for the leaves, as always), we were all set for the (hopefully) exciting trip ahead! We, as in, I and my wife.
