The Last Home Coming

I just planned a 3330 kms of chiku-buku for 56 hours! (And I am only hoping it doesn’t turn to be 127 hours :) )

And what’s the icing on the cake this time?
I will be along with a couple of works of fiction. Period.

I have learnt that travelling alone is a unique experience and can be very rewarding, personally. Advantages of travelling alone are plenty:
  • It's easier to make friends with the other travellers. Yup, you got me. ;)
  • You only have to please yourself. You are not concerned about a zillion other people and their safety and comfort
  • Your time and budget. No excel sheets after the journey!
  • Your travel will be far more flexible and you take decisions on the spur of the moment
  • Opportunity for reflection and contemplation. This is no globe. This is required after two years of fast-paced b-school life :)
You might be thinking what an introverted moron I am. Yes, I am and always will be. And this doesn’t mean that next time you plan a trip you comfortably avoid me. I will bury you alive. :)

From the time I joined for my post-graduation I wanted to take a train from Lucknow to my native. And this is my last chance. I have heard that once you stay in a train for 2-3 days, even after you get out the hangover stays and you feel like you are shaking. :)
I have always loved travelling. That’s one reason why I had a great time during my summer internship. Memorable days!

And trains. You know how much I love them. And moreover this journey is going to be special. The final one after two years of so called academic rigour.

Honestly academic rigour is upto you. Its how much you want to do rather than someone imposing things on you. More about b-school system in another post possibly a month or two later. :)
P.S. I clicked these in my last journey on the Konkan rail-line. The next one should ideally have better ones :)
