Procastination. It’s the slayer of all things great. This is true even when it comes to travel. It’s time you take that Eurotrip that you’ve been talking about with your friends. And it’s time you went on that trek to the Everest Base Camp to test your endurance.
For my folks and I, Ladakh was what we were procrastinating about. Since 2015, we had been thinking of visiting this cold desert in the east of Jammu and Kashmir, to witness the glory of the snow-covered peaks. May 2018, that changed. And it was only apt that I took this trip with my mum.
Earlier this year, my mom quit her job after 35 years of working in corporate communications and coincidentally, I was home too, waiting to start my masters. She's the reason I made a career in marketing and she's mostly the reason that I became an independent, fiery young woman. One lazy evening, while sipping hot, ginger tea and watching a chick flick, I said - it’s time we go to Ladakh. Those words caught her attention and she asked me to check for packages right away. Immediately, I booked this package on Yatra.com called the Ladakh Outing for 2 people. It covered the flight tickets and transfers, accommodation and most of the meals. Mind you, it did not cover transportation and sight-seeing during the trip, even though they seem to showcase an itinerary on their package details, which is a story for later.
