I did not update my blog last week because I was on a vacation for the weekend but I’m back and ready to share my weekly experiences with you now.
Starting with last week, I’m happy to say that I have finally settled on a plot and storyline for my book. And I know I have a long way to go but it is a good start. I’ll definitely share more about that with you later.
The highlight of last week was definitely our family weekend getaway. We started our journey on Friday early morning and reached our destination in the evening. The drive was smooth and we reached without any problems, despite everyone thinking we would be tired or lost(because we were following the GPS). The hotel I had booked was also nice and close to the beach so we went out for a walk before dinner.
The next morning we traveled for an hour to a nearby beach area which was a lot nicer and more filled with tourists. My mum wanted us to stay there because she liked it better than the one we had just come from. We went for a swim and spent the day at the beach only to return before sunset to have a shower and go out again.
We went to the main beach for the sunset and clicked some really great pictures. We ate a lot during the entire journey so I’m not gonna delve much into the food. I am personally not fond of seafood but the others enjoyed it a lot. After a night of walking around and drinking and enjoying, it was another day well spent.
On sunday, we returned to our hotel in Mandarmani and went to the beach to just look around since it would take an hour to prepare our lunch. First it was only us kids going out there because we were bored but soon enough everyone was down at the beach and we decided to ride the banana rides. We hadn’t taken part in any adventure sports because my cousins were afraid of the water and all but soon everyone was ready to go.
That was another experience to be treasured. It was so spontaneous and exhilariting at the same time. We were all giddy with the adrenaline after the ride was over. We were late for lunch but it was worth it.
Now even though we were tired from travelling and moving around continuously for all three days, we still decided to some sight seeing so we went to this resort cum park called the Rose Valley. There we took a toy train ride because it was a sprawling property and everything was worth watching. There was a temple and the back opened on to the beach.
For the sunset we came back inside and climbed on an artificial cruise boat to see the sunset. It was beautiful and peaceful and I wish I could go back there. After we returned to our hotel some of us decided to go to the local market for some last minute gift shopping and street food eating. I bought a nice pair of earrings for myself. It was love at first sight. 😉
On Monday, our return journey was concluded and we had a little problem with our car so we reached home late at night. But everything was definitely worth it. I have been to family vacations every year for the last 7-8 years and after every vacation I feel exactly this glad to have spent time with my family. It is always the best vacation each time.
As for this week, nothing exciting or worth reporting has happened except for my severe bout of headache on Friday night. The pain was so immense I thought I was going to die and a few things struck my mind which really made me think where my life is going. More of that in the next blog. I might update early, so keep reading, keep waiting and keep showing me love.
See you next post. 😉
