My recent 12 day stay in Gurgaon, although it was for work, and last year’s week stay in Chennai, again albeit for work, had kindle an interest in traveling in me. Shocking, as I usually hate traveling. I think it’s more because I associate traveling in India with train journeys and I hate traveling in a train. Noisy, crowded and yuck! I can’t stand train journeys and would prefer to travel in a bus as you only have to stare out the window or the seat in front of you and perhaps an occasional glance at the person sitting next to you and not a horde of people.
But back to the point; I found myself checking out OYO rooms in locations that I want to visit and thinking of a quick 3-4 day trip and how much it would cost me for just the travel and the cost of the room. Finding some rather decently charged rooms in kinda of bed and breakfast places with really nice bedrooms, I am tempted to take a leave the next Friday and go for a three day vacation in places in the state! Or tack on a few more days and go to Goa or Pondi or Coorg! Heck Bangalore too for a few days and enjoy some pub action! That is something I really want to do and I think I may go in June.
Even a quick 2 day stay in a nice place somewhere in the outskirts of the city I live in would be quite relaxing. I would do it as long as the prices are reasonable and I can relax for a couple of days. That would be good for the mind and body.
What’s your idea of a perfect day off: one during which you can quietly relax, doing nothing, or one with one fun activity lined up after the other? Tell us how you’d spend your time.
There is no such thing as a perfect day. Let me get that one thing straight. Having said that, depending on my mood and who I am with I can think of several ways to spend a day off.
At this moment, feeling a little tired and it being a Friday, if I had things my way I would like to spend a quite day at home alone. Recharging and relaxing is a great way to unwind. Sometimes I feel like a two day weekend is too short! Ok, so I would probably like to wake up by 8 am or so and listen to music all morning as I made a leisurely breakfast and drink coffee. I would also like a cold milkshake with some fruit in it like banana or apple. I would crank up an ac and relax all day as the days are so boiling hot outside.
By noon I would start feeling peckish so here’s what I would order. A large pizza with everything on it and I would poop open a couple of beers. That’s the way, ahuh ahuh, I like it, ahuh ahuh! Gulp down those beers and munch on the delicious pizza as I watch a movie or two and relax on my bed. By 5 a quick shower and more coffee with music and Youtube on. Spend the evening like that until 9pm and order some bbq chow and maybe a vodka and Sprite and enjoy the evening. Another movie before I go to bed. That would be simple and yet relaxing. Sleepy for 8 hours after that too!
