The trip...

I am going to Goa… Impromptu… Without any rhyme or reason… Without any plans…

I am just packing my bags and leaving… Because I need to… I need to, not get away or runaway, but I need to because I need to travel somewhere… Anywhere.

Even though I have been to Goa before but every trip shows one something new…

And I hope I discover something new about myself…

About the people around me…

I have always loved traveling… some of my earliest memories are of being on a road trip with my parents… For my dad it comes with the job… He’s in the defence and luckily for him both my mom and me love packing our bags and leaving for the next destination… of course at times I have wondered about how I really have no real home or link to my supposed heritage.. I am a Bengali who cant eat fish or talk the language in a refined manner and I don’t like sweets very much… I am more of a Butter chicken and Sizzlers eating person… And no I am not proud of not being able to speak Bengali properly... it is a shame!!

But nevertheless I have loved my childhood for all its craziness and meeting new people.

And since the past few days hearing stories about people exploring old and new destinations I felt oddly restless…

SO I am leaving tonight…

Hopefully when I am back I will have interesting and funny things to share…

Though there is one thing… I could have easily traded Goa for Delhi… I am craving for Roomali roti’s and Kababs… And some things more…

But I didn’t get the sign…

Wish I had received one in time.. I would have come there without thinking twice...

I second you there. I am a bengali too who cant eat fish [pure veggie here!] nor can talk bengali very well.

Hope you have an amazing trip! Plus I like Delhi too!
