Now that I'm back home from my Mumbai-Goa Trip I thought I’d do a small recap.
Mumbai has a special place in my heart, have some unforgettable memories of the past and I have always cherished them. This time I went to Mumbai with my childhood friends, I have traveled with them to Dubai last year and had a great experience and I was looking forward to this trip however I had some work too but couldn't manage to do any, especially when your friends are chilling and you're trying to work. No not a good combination.
Do you remember your first flight and it's experience? I certainly do! The memories of my first flight are immensely close to my heart.
August 2011 | Delhi ✈️ Mumbai.
My first flight, traveling alone to a place I have never been before, to meet someone I hardly know.. Yes sounds like a movie but it is as it is. Let me give you a little insight about my first trip to MUMBAI. One fine day I decided to go and meet this person I have been talking to for months and surprise him. So, I went to a travel agent, booked my flight, planned and packed everything best possible, reached Airport just in time to know that the flight has been cancelled and my agent hasn't informed me. Panic Attack! Yes literally I had that.
I didn't even had the agent's number, with broken heart and teary eyes I called Mr. A that all this has happened and what do I do now.? I didn't had much money to buy another ticket. Somehow arranged for it and bought another ticket. if you know me, you know me! I don't give up, especially on my DREAMS.
The next flight was almost after 2 hours and I had to wait at the Airport but I was quite excited as it was my first time, I collected my boarding pass and waited patiently.
2 Hours Later. Time to TAKE OFF! I still remember that feeling, butterflies in my stomach and beautiful view from the window. I was smiling like a child when the aircraft was passing through the clouds. That moment was purely Magical and the Joy of seeing someone special right at the arrival gate. ❤️
Talking about first flight experiences, I want to share another dream come true moment. Mr. A is a flight steward with a leading Indian Airline and I am an artist who keeps on traveling to one place to another. I have boarded hundreds of flights in past 5 years but never got a chance to travel with Mr. A, but this time we made it real.
I would love to hear you First Flight Experience.
Anyways coming back to the trip, I was in Mumbai for good 5 days and had so many plans but I was kind of lost, so couldn't make the most of it.
Day 1 : Lazying in the hotel room, partied with some new friends at night.
Day 2 : Checked out of Hotel, stayed at a friends's house in Andheri (Thank You Tanvir), visited nearby vicinity in the evening and partied at his house again till late night, Later Reached Deepika's house and met my Delhi friends (Deepak & Sukhdeep), went on a drive.
Day 3 : Got ready for LAKME FASHION WEEK but missed attending it. LOL! Met some Delhi Bloggers and shopped at H&M instead. Later at night visited Juhu Chaupaty with my childhood friends.
Day 4 : Trip to Lonavala and House Party at Deepika's Place.
Day 5 : Ujjwal joined us today and did road tripping in the city, visited Haji Ali and Siddhi Vinayak, ate Ice Cream at Bachelors and drove through the Marine Drive.
That pretty much sums up my Mumbai Trip.
