After so many cancelled plans, finally we could manage to materialize a long awaited 'Only girl's' trip !!
After what i call it 'an almost sleepless' night in an overnight bus from Delhi, we reached 'Rishikesh' at around 4 in the morning. While our scheduled time to reach was 6 am, we were surprised and quite confused as to how to manage another 2 hours in cold, dark night in a rather desolated place as all our further arrangements were according to the scheduled time.
Thinking how furious we could get if our moms would have woken us up this early, we started walking towards bus station to find a bus to 'Kaudiyala' (Our camp site) which was one hour further from Rishikesh.
We were fortunate enough to find a good tea stall and the displeasure of reaching early was soon killed by hot plate of 'Maggie and a cup of Chai'. After buying one or too essentials from the nearby shops, we realized, it was time we start finding our bus. We started asking conductors and drivers about next bus to 'Kaudiyala' .
To our dismay, all bus conductors refused to let us board the bus as they did not want to waste their seat on a rather short trip. After much argument, we realized, taking a bus is no more an option. We looked for a private cab, left the bus station and managed to reach somewhat near our camp at around 6.30 am where we met our instructor from the camp.
