Putting up a blog post along with excellent travel bloggers who have an extraordinary skill of making readers experience the journey they had through their words, and rich experience of visiting different places as a part of their journey. I felt maybe I was not the right person to write a blog post here. I finally gathered the courage to be a part of this blogging challenge because all these thoughts clouded my mind only after I registered for it.
I travel a lot but not an avid traveler who travels to different places and countries but a traveller who visits the same city, the same country, multiple times. For me, more than the destination, whom I travel with, the memories of fun and laughter, the food I eat there are the things that get etched in my memory.
In my childhood, I remember a journey to Ooty with my entire family. And all my cousins together visited the black thunder amusement park, where we were all delighted, and our happiness had no bounds as it was our first time in life, we took water rides. We kids loved the back seat, for the only reason that snacks, and water bottles, were placed there. We would finish all the snacks, and we even remember telling elders \’\’snacks got over\’\’ when they asked for it. The unforgettable game of dumb charades was even more special as we created new movie names and convinced each other even when there were no such movies. Haha, those were crazy good old days of my life.
Being a girl who spent most of my life in Chennai, it is my favourite city that no place on earth can make up for it. If I start to write about Chennai, I would probably end up with the longest post as I have travelled countless times from my home town to Chennai.
And one more trip I remember was my trip to Kerala with my relatives, and finally, I found why it is called God\’s own city. And again, Wonderla was where I found the child in me jump with joy.
Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia are few countries I have visited. My family lived in Singapore for a year, and I have a lot of kinder garden memories there. And now we keep visiting my brother, who lives there once in a while. Singapore has an attractive list of places to visit: starting from universal studios, Sentosa island, Gardens by the bay, marina bay, the sea aquarium, night safari, and the Zoo, to name a few. If you are with kids, then the Zoo, the sea aquarium, and trick eye museum are places you should check out as kids would have maximum fun. Writing about food, I can feel the food lover in me jump with joy. The bubble milo, Chandol ice cream, green tea KitKat, Indonesian layer cake, Noodles with soup and fish balls, Murtabak, Curry puffs is all that my taste buds can relish and remember.
I have a lot of respect for Singapore as a country as it is a place where different people come together for their job and livelihood. The country respects and honours every language that is spoken by its inhabitants, and one can find unity in diversity blossom when you see four different languages shine in their dollar notes. If India can learn this from Singapore, we can surely prosper.
As I come to the end of my post, I would like to mention that only once I visited Pune and the rest of North India is my bucket list.
