An unplanned Trip to Darjeeling made me realise that one should put some thought before booking tickets.
My train was suppose to reach New Jalpaiguri by 02 pm, it got delayed and reached after 04 pm. Initially I thought of booking a seat on shared cab/jeep to Darjeeling but train got delayed and couldn’t find any shared transportation for Darjeeling. I have been to Siliguri before ( which is 30 mins from New Jalpaiguri), so was in a dilemma of weather to spend the night in Siliguri or book a private cab which will be approx Rs.2000 and head towards Darjeeling.
After searching for sometime, found a car which came to the station to drop passengers and was returning to Darjeeling, driver agreed to take me for Rs.1700 (we were three people). Agreed to it and started our journey.
It took almost 03 hrs to reach , driver dropped us at Mall road and we reached hotel by 8.00 pm. Quickly checked in, had dinner and crashed on bed snoring ????.
