And The Journey Begins!
Now since my parents really didn't have any other reason to say no anymore, we set our journey started! And after roaming around the airport in Delhi, updating our Instagram stories and FB check ins and 2 hour long flight, we FINALLY landed at the Bagdogra Airport and booked a taxi to Darjeeling from the prepaid taxi booth at the airport as they're cheaper and safer, without any doubts!
The drive, despite the initial distaste, was one of the most beautiful and memorable one I'd ever had. Once you get out of the city and move higher on the mountains, you cross many villages on the way and the bright hued, little homes and the toy train along the road will surely leave you in awe! Since we were only going to stay in Darjeeling for a day, we got in action to the earliest, grabbed our jackets and headed out to the famous Chauk Bazaar.
Strolling around the market, checking out the decade old shops with bhutta in our hands, we finally stopped by the beautiful Glenary's Bakery that'll give you all the vintage feels as soon as you set your eyes on the place! Post a great dinner, we headed back to the hotel because it was going to be a long and early day ahead!
