Travelling to Darjeeling has always been on my wishlist. With the beautiful lake and the intense dense forests, this place is like an Indian heaven. When I reached Kolkata, I had to stay there for 2 days and then head further north. I was surprised to see the beauty that Kolkata imbibes you with. Even among the chaotic lanes and the humid weather, I couldn’t have enjoyed any place better with those perfect sweet dishes and cultural connect. Next morning, I checked my PNR status as my train journey was about to begin.

Starting from the Ramakrishna Mutt on the banks of Hoogli river to catching glimpse of the Victoria memorial and Kali temple, our train journey sufficed all the important tourist destinations in itself. As the journey progressed I felt myself connected with nature. Trying to sweep all my tensions away and spend my entire life in that one moment of emptiness. The weather during the journey was pretty humid which made us more excited to reach the north east. Eucalyptus trees accompanied us during the entire journey giving it an angelic feel.

From, Siliguri, the Teesta river was running alongside of us. It followed us through and also made me realise the amazing details in the blue water and the light golden brown sand. The striking view of pine wood trees and big gardens made me feel homesick. As I gathered myself together, someone pointed out the grand Rajbari palace that was visible through the train and I was mesmerized again. The route also involved various destinations like Rampur haat, Guwahati, Dibrugarh etc. Before I could take it all in, it was time to get off but the journey wasn’t  over yet. It was time to fulfill my childhood dream, get on a toy train. It was all green, red and yellow, just how I imagined. I was so excited as I boarded. Soon we reached our destination. It was definitely a journey that words could not do justice to. I don’t ever want to forget this feeling!

  6. This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

    Too cool!

  7. wonderful post, very informative. I ponder why the opposite
    experts of this sector do not understand this. You should
    continue your writing. I am confident, you have a huge readers’ base already!

  8. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
    only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  9. Awesome blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many options
    out there that I’m completely confused .. Any tips? Kudos!

  10. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your post seem to be running off the
    screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but
    I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though!

    Hope you get the problem solved soon. Kudos
