A Trip To Remember

A trip with old school friends is always fun and gives wonderful memories. The author is glad that she took one such trip with friends.

I joined an intermediate college near my home after I finished school. On my first day, I saw a shy girl in our classroom. I soon recognized that she was one of my neighbours. She was chit-chatting with her cousin in the class room. I went to her and introduced myself. Little did I know that we were going to be best friends forever.

Three of us are settled in different countries now. We have a whatsapp group of three members. One of the friends who is settled in US informed us that she was going to visit India along with her mom. My other friend also planned to visit India around the same time. Three of us decided to plan a trip. We shortlisted a few places and finally selected Goa.

After six months, both of them visited India. Three of us met at my friend’s place and planned for our tour. Since I had visited Goa many times, I took the responsibility of booking tickets and making other arrangements. I booked a package tour. Finally, the day came. We all met at one place and reached airport in the same car.

After reaching Goa, our tour operator came to receive us at the airport and drove us to the hotel. We booked a beach resort. We were very happy with the ambience. Beaches were neat and uncrowded. We enjoyed the spectacular view of the beach. Next two days we went for day time city tour. There we visited churches, beaches and many other tourist spots. One of the major attractions was dolphin watching at Sequirium beach and visiting Fort Aquada.  On the last day, we went for para gliding and banana ride. It was an out of the world experience for us.

We were in the resort for three days. Every evening we used to go to the beach side and walk till night. After dinner we used to come back to our room and talk till midnight. I can say that those days were one of the best days of my life. We were so happy. Going on a trip with friends is always pleasurable. Our pictures reflected happy faces and we took many pictures. Now, I am eagerly waiting for another tour.
