My Ideal Yatra

Experiences and memories are all that matter to us as humans. Money, people and things will come and go but memories stay with you forever. Everyone needs a perfect vacation in their lives from time to time to sit back, relax and realize the beauty of life and nature. It's a freedom from all the baggage and worries that you fight through in your everyday routine, it's a present that you must gift yourself with. 

For me, an ideal vacation should be very peaceful but at the same time very enjoyable and fascinating. I always love to go to places with people speaking an alien language and having different cultures so that I could experience a new way of living that is completely different from mine. Since, India is a very versatile country as far as cultures are concerned so we are lucky enough to travel in different regions of India and still have a new experience every time. As I live in north India so I have almost traveled the north side of the country but for me what would really be exciting is to travel the south side. 

I love to travel by any means be it air, water or land. Traveling in trains in really thrilling, sleeping on the topmost rows and waking up on listening to the vendors selling tea and breakfast, sitting near the window seat and feeling the cool breeze along with the wonderful view of outside, what more could one ask for? But at the same time it takes a lot of time to reach at your destination and could be tiresome and difficult to live in there for few days until you reach your station. For me, I would prefer going by train and coming back via airways since you're quite energetic and active, full with spirit of excitement to go to a vacation in the beginning. And there's no harm in keeping patience and enjoying the experience of traveling in train. On the other hand, when the vacation is done, you are quite worn out and jaded. So, I'd personally prefer traveling by a means that is quite comfortable and would take lesser time to reach. Traveling by airplane can save a lot of time and is much comfortable than going via train or bus. Since, taking air route is much costlier than taking a train so in this way it could actually balance your budget and also your time.

A vacation must be long enough so that you enjoy to utmost but limited enough so that it doesn't create any problem with your work routine or budget. So, for me ideal vacation must last for one or two weeks not more than that. Following is my plan of how I'd like my vacation to be.

Day 1: Departure from Bathinda railway station early in the morning for New Delhi to further board a train for Kerala. Delhi Intercity express departs around 5:00 AM and reaches around 1:00 in the afternoon. And then on reaching New Delhi, boarding the train for Trivandrum that departs around 3:00 PM.  

Day 2-3: Staying in train and playing cards with friends and family.

Day 4: Reaching Kerala in the mid evening and checking in at a nice, comfortable and luxury hotel that I would book in advance using the Yatra.com App installed in my phone. Then in the late evening going for the Kovalam Beach in Trivandrum and having fun along with clicking a lot of selfies.

Day 5: Early in the morning, after having breakfast, leaving for the Zoo in Trivandrum and then depart for Ooty taking a Bus. Ooty, the name itself is like heaven to ears, I always think of Ooty as a green, clean and hilly place to visit. Nevertheless, there's a lot more to Ooty.
After reaching Ooty, checking-in at another Hotel that again I would book on my App. Visiting the Ooty Lake and boating is a must. Horse-back riding would also be quite fun.
After boating going to the Tea factory and having a look at freshly processed leaves and finally in the evening going to the Restaurant/Hotel.

Day -6: Early morning leaving for Doddabeta peak that is the highest peak in Ooty and I'm sure it would have amazing views to offer. Then in the late morning leaving for Mysore. The major attractions of Mysore is the Mysore palace that would be the first place to visit. Then visiting Mysore Zoo and see some wildlife. After the Zoo, in the evening proceeding to the famous Vrindavan Garden that also has a Musical fountain and a beautiful light show in the evening. Afterwards staying in a hotel at Mysore and having dinner.

Day-7: Leaving for Bengaluru after having breakfast. Visiting Tipu Sultan's summer Palace and then going to a mall for some shopping for loved ones. In the evening, going to the Hebbal Lake and enjoying the arresting views and yet again taking a lot of selfies.

Day-8: Going to the Bengaluru International Airport and taking a flight to New Delhi via Indigo Airlines that's I think the cheapest of all and at the same time very comfortable, so it suits me the best. I will book this again using the same Yatra.com App(totally a Savior) prior to coming on this Vacation. 

I'd also like to mention that I'm a big time foodie, so I would definitely try experimenting with having all kinds of South-Indian food that also adds a big part to my ideal Yatra.
So, this was my 8 Day long ideal Yatra. I hope you found it interesting. Cheers!
