Traveling when employed in a software company is pretty difficult nowadays. First, you have think about money, then leaves, your manager's approval as well as the same for everyone who has planned to travel with you. But, me and my ex-roommate, his girlfriend and another friend finally made it with a little bit of planning and a LONG WEEKEND.
On the 28th of May, we had a leave owing to the Memorial Day, thus we set off for the first time to Kasol (which was our first destination) and we were going to stay there for 2 nights, which was the 26th & 27th.
Post Friday work, we set off around 4.30 AM and we hired a car on rent (Toyota Innova - 13 Rs. per km and night charge - 250). This was okay for us, since we split it among 4 of us. We stopped for breakfast along the highway in Gurgaon, made our way through outer Chandigarh (Punjab) and our 2nd stop was at Sundernagar (Himachal Pradesh) for our lunch at around 2PM in the afternoon. From Sundernager, we made our way through Aut-Bhuntar and finally reached Kasol at around 6.30 PM.
