Amidst all the workload and crazy tight schedule, finally my family and I planned a short trip to Indore and Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh, India). It was just a 3 days trip, but ah! it was just so relaxing and refreshing, away from all the daily chaos. I think everyone should take some timeout from their schedules. At first it seems difficult to take some time off, but trust me its worth it and work can be managed even after your small vacation. So, go for it !
Talking about my trip, whenever we go to Ujjain, we usually hit the road and take our own car. The drive takes about 10-12 hours (Mumbai – Ujjain), with the tea and lunch breaks. That is a fun experience in itself. But, this time we wanted to take the plane. Initially, dad was a bit reluctant for that because it was heavy on the budget, but we convinced him *wink*.
We booked our flights with IndiGo and had a great and smooth flight with them. (I mentioned this because I don’t like flying) But IndiGo was amazing. We first went to Ujjain to visit this Lord Shiva Temple and stayed a night over there. (If you want a day plan for Ujjain, then let me know in the comments)
Then came the second day, my favourite day, we went to Indore. I was looking forward to this day because we were going to check-in at the Sayaji Hotel, which is an amazing classy Hotel in Indore. I LOVE their comfy beds and soothing showers, just so relaxing. We stayed there for a night and my experience with them was yet again amazing. Their food, hospitality, courteous staff, services, in short everything is up-to the mark.
My dad and I also went for swimming for a little while and that was the best thing that happened on this trip. It was like going back-in-time and reliving the swimming memories with him. It was he who held my hands and taught me to swim. We relived that moment again in the pool of Sayaji Hotel. And the next day, that is the third day, with a very heavy heart, we left our rooms and headed towards the airport to come back home.
It was a short and sweet trip but so refreshing. Take time out and travel, you guys !
