Treasured Travels - 1

One of the best travels I had ever had.. ;) ;)
5:00 pm: Left hostel for my winter vacations along with my cousin and her dad..
Much before the vacations had started, had zillion’s of plans goin on in my head as how to spend those hours blissfully…
As we were very short of time we could not book tickets and then eventually resulted in rushing to the bus-stop and finding a last-min bus ..but as fate had it for us, we reached the bus stop at 8:00 pm ( had no idea why it took 3 hrz for us to reach the stop..it would normally take 1 and half hours maximum )..after a lots and lots  of running finally got a bus-that was the last bus available to Andhra and unfortunately there were no seats…aahhhaannn….not a single seat..infact it was over-crowded already..and the driver was kind enough to advice us that we could occupy the conductors seat and the seat next to the engine..giving a crooked smile that I could not guess out what he actually meant…well,fine we had to leave chennai anywyaz so had no other option..so way to go…I anywayz ended up sitting on the engine..thanx to the humps all the way..could not sit in one place :S :S :S zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…
It was almost 10:00 pm till we left the bus stop and waz on my way to a so-called-marvellous-HOLIDAY…and the point was that the bus that we were in wasn’t actually going to the plae where we wanted to…it was just upto a place called CHITTOR..this tiny town lies  on the way to my place KADAPA..the bus had to take diversion after reaching to chittor…
So we finally decided to get down at chittor at around 2:00 am…and yet to get the shock of my life there was no damn bus at the bus stop..to add more to it..there was no fucking electricity anywhere…wanna kno more,the city was abondoned as if they would be cursed to get out after 00:00 and help someone out……….*gwad* *gwad* gwad*…..
To give us company the mosquitoes were gossiping about our bad luck I suppose and the delicious meal they could have from our blood…me and my sis were half asleep..the way we talked with eachother was as if we had drunk tonnes of bear or something…our walk’s was marvellous then ever it could be…who bothered,the entire damn city was sleeping..my poor uncle was had no idea where to go and ask whome,  what to do? There was no bus,no auto,not even a cycle, nor a tanga ,nor even a bullock-coat…yea that was what I was thinking of …(when u r in a midist of nothing u almost think of everything..)
After waiting for half-n-hour in an abondoned city next to a road side dhaba that needed a total renovation for sure, a truck passed by , finally my uncle took a  decision and stopped the truk before the only chance to escape from this city flew by..
The truck-driver must be in his late 20’s and was a born hydrabadi I suppose…his language gave me a hint bout that..and ya he was generous enough to help us out..phew…okies…I was not at all ready for this..ya I knew I had to get the hell out of here but in a truck…oohhhh nnnnnoooo nnnnnnooooo….
As if I had a million options ahead of me( :S:S) ..finally manged to give a weak smile and tried climbing up a truck for the first time in my entire life….those huge tires…that small door…that congested seat…stinky smell..hmmpphhhhh…..avoided everything …finally squezeed myself in..pulled my sis up and uncle could climb in himself…..heheheheheee
Was around 3:00 am,the truck moved no faster then a tanga…ya…I would have walked faster then it provided my legs had enough strength to carry my body…the truck driver all enthusiatic was asking my uncle some sort of silly questions that I did not feel an inch important at that hour of my life..had no idea what made him so energetic….must mostly be me and my sis,to help out 2 gals in the middle of the night would surely be a change in his monotonous schedule :D ;)..hehehehehe…..
Somehow managed to reach home by 5:00 am..hmmmmmm….was wet with sweat..was as stinky as a pig..my hair all tangled up….clothes pretty messed up..if I had some grease on my face ,I would resemble more like a zombie…ya thtz ryt…my aunt almost shooeedddd me off to the washroom..just got freshed and was dying to get a bed to put my eyes to rest…
Cherry on the cake – My aunt had sent hot coffee to relax myself and sent me off to sleep…before I knew I was in a  deep sleep and had no clue of the entire world… was heaven :D ;) …finally I was on a holiday ;) 

(p.s- I had lots of complaints regarding that day, must mostly be due to the humid climate,hunger,sleep and some other factors..but now recalling that day….it is one of those days I would love to remember,how I travelled through all those things…it does inspires me to have adventorous trips..moreover, who would have travelled in a bus getting their butt rosted-wiaiting in a abondoned city at 3am- journey through the truck-and finally the HOT COFFEE-  ALL MADE IT WORTHWHILE) :)

Masalam..*save energy* all over again..take loads of care…. Great nite…bbyyee byyyee :)
