Day 1

My first unplanned trip with my friends to Mussoorie and Rishikesh.
One Night and Two days of trip from Delhi to Mussoorie (287km), Mussoorie to Rishikesh (75km) travelling from bus and local transports. It was a great trip with my friends we were watching Ind vs SL WC match that was getting boring with every single balls that hit with the Srilankan batsman then my friend suggested me to go to Mussoorie and Rishikesh and after that we quickly pack our bags and left our flat for the Kashmeeri Gate ISBT  to get a local bus and reach to the Mussoorie.
We departed from Kashmeeri gate ISBT to the Dehradun from there we take another bus which dropped us to the Mall road Mussoorie.
met many peoples interacted with the locals and learned alot from this unplanned trip.
I have a 9 to 6 job and this trip helps me lot to release my stress. Experiencing cold weathers, clouds.

Have you ever surrounded yourself with Langoors? I saw a security guard in a park next to the Beatels Ashram, feeding biscuits and talking and playing with the langoors. He was surrounded by 6-7 langoors and he is offering biscuits to everyone. I asked him how you are so friendly with them and he replied that he came to this park 6 months back and having a great friendship with all of them. He said they are my family here after my real family who live in village. I have a good friendship with them. They won't hurt me i played with them and playing with them. There is a very young langoor & who is my favorite one, who even sit on my chair and starting jumping all around me.

We left for the Delhi in the evening around 7 pm from the Bus station and reached Delhi around  12pm.
Again life is going to be the same. Office and daily hustles.
This trip is worth it.

WHAT I LEARN FROM THIS TRIP ?

It took me approx. 6 months to get this smile and to feel great.
Best thing about a trip is when you packed your bag & hit the road, you've already left every single thing that you never want to carry, okay !! it is not so easy because we are having our daily routine & schedules (it must keep busy anyone in this racefull life) and we have to repeat it  for every single day.
So why don't we throw this shit out and try to see or experience something new that We've never seen or think before.
Keeping a smile on your face besides every up & low that is currently going in your life and somehow you used to mange it.
It is a great thing and just like you many other people are doing the same everyday(life is not just about happiness or living) but in the night when you reach your home having a chilled beer and you started thinking "why i am doing this" or "why i am hiding" my real emotions behind a smile & at that time i realize hiding yourself or your emotions is not a great idea that your mind has created.
Living a life with lots of complaints is not a way of living
Living a life is about yourself, what you want & for the calm.
Every single livings on the planet Earth is having a different life and their way of living life you can not simply say that i wish i have the same life as like you.
Leaving your place for few days and maybe you have opportunity to go somewhere else to experience something new,  i think everyone should do this to experience there are countless things to do and learn from the people, there culture, environment & life.
Slaughtering  your asses every month. Is it your pick ??? 😂
.
.YOU CAN NOT LIVE YOUR LIFE ON YOUR HYPOTHESIS, YOU MUST HAVE SOME LOGICS TO STEP FORWARD AND TO SUCCEED.
