My first solo trip (Part 1)

‘When I grow up… I will definitely travel around the world…’ Like every child I kept telling this to my parents as a tiny tot.. And I kept thinking about that for many years in my life.. Thus after the school days.. I began my college in 2017 at Kristu Jyoti yoti college, Chenganassery, a small town in Kottayam district of Kerala… I had to stay in a homestay as my college is far from my home in Thrissur.

At first it was difficult for me to adjust to the hustle bustle life.. But later everything got perfectly settled I began thinking about the solo trip and the place which I will be going for my special day with me!!!!!.. And at last we got a “surprise holiday”… I must tell that holidays are rarer for a private college πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘… So I looked for many places and at last decided to go to the famous Alapuzha… A place famous for its backwaters and a tourist attraction, as Lord Curzon described it as “Venice of the East”.

On February 14 th… I woke up early and decided to go to the Alappuzha beach which is the famous beach there.. I decided to go there because a friend promised to take me there and at last minute she dropped the plan.. 😳😳.. Yes.. It was more of a revenge trip.. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.. I sat on the bus after 10 pm and the bus moved slowly through the busy roads…. After ten minutes, the bus turned to the AC Road which is famous for the beauty of Chenganassery and Alapuzha… Small streaks of beaches and canals began to appear gracefully along the sides which calmed the minds… I began getting the smell of the sea and the soil as I relaxed on my seat.. There was a teenage girl who sat near my side playing “Jiye toh Jiye kaise..” on her mobile… Thus I sat there looking out of the window.. Enjoying the beauty of the paddy fields and ‘Jiye toh Jiye’ playing on my mind…
