Pulling an all-nighter before something exciting the next day, something you've been looking forward to for months, is a very common practice. It shows how eagerly you were looking forward to the upcoming day. That was somewhat the scenario for my first ever independent trip. (Deliberately using the word "independent" and not "solo", as I went there with a couple of friends.)
I live in Delhi and had to go to Bangalore to meet up with a few friends who were going to join us on our way to Goa. We travelled by road from Bangalore to Goa on the night of Sunday, 26th March. It was a smooth overnight journey, and we reached in 10 hours straight, on the morning of Monday, 27th March.
