It was the long weekend in August. I craved to go on a trip.
Out of a few options, I picked Mussoorie. The place is not too far and also I had never been there before.
I’ve had enough trips with family and friends, but this time, I wanted to do something different. After all, travelling is all about having new experiences. Then, the idea of solo trip popped up.
Somehow, I mustered the courage to tell my mom about it. She, being a typical Indian mother, said, ‘are you crazy?’
It took great efforts to make her digest and agree to my idea. Though it was 8 p.m. by then. But nevertheless, I quickly packed my bags and left for the bus terminal.
I got into an Uttrakhand Roadways bus around 9:30 p. m. And at 5:30 a. m. next day, I was surrounded by the Queen of Hills.
