Yatra, the word itself brings so much excitement and emotions with it that the wanderer in us awakens. I am sure you will find the bucket list shared above useful to ensure that your next yatra is power packed and memorable. Now I would share with you a journey I made some years back with my BFF. We were blessed to get selected for a conference at The University of Arizona, US during our graduation. And that gave us a wonderful opportunity to visit US which was our dream destination. Also it became an opportunity for us to take international flights for the first time. It cannot get any better than folks!
We spent a month into putting everything together for the journey. We worked for our presentation at the conference and also kept exploring the places to visit in the US. Also our luggage was full of garments worthy of a vacation at US. Finally our grand journey began on 24th May, 2012 at 3 am when we boarded a flight from Delhi to Los Angeles. We had chosen to travel by Air China which was super comfortable. We were chit-chatting about how we will make the most of the time after reaching to US.
We landed at Los Angeles on 24th May, 2012 at 6 pm and we were thrilled beyond words. We had already booked our accommodation at Travelodge Anaheim International Inn for a comfortable yet economic stay. The place was cozy and we received a warm welcome by the staff. We fell asleep the moment we lay on the bed. Next morning we rushed to the Disneyland to join the kids in having fun. We were amazed to meet all our favourite Disney characters and were taking pictures every 15 minutes.
After an eventful day at the Disneyland, we headed back and took a bus ride to Las Vegas at 7 pm. We reached Vegas at 12:30 am and rushed to our hotel room at Travelodge Las Vegas. The next morning we enjoyed all day exploring the world of glamour & gaming. I was so inspired by the street fashion at Vegas. Everybody was in a merry making mood and that inspired me to be a happier person than I was previously. On 27th May, we took a tour of the Grand Canyon which began quite early at 5 am. We were amazed by the grandness of the mountains. The view was splendid. We returned to our hotel at night by 9 pm.
The next day we boarded a bus to Tuscon at 6 pm. We reach the city at 3:30 am. We were amazed by the energy of the campus there. We attended various sessions at the conference which was around sustainability. The next day we had our presentation and we were overwhelmed by the response. We also spent some time exploring the campus. We again took a bus to head back to Los Angeles at night at 12:30 am. We reached the city at 9:30 am and this time we stayed at Travel lodge Hollywood. We spent the entire day at the Universal Studios, Hollywood. The magnificent views and the lovely rides blew our mind. We finally took our flight for our return journey at 1:20 am. Our hearts were full of memories and we fell asleep soon. We reached Delhi at 1:40 pm the next day. Thus ended my most memorable journey and it was just perfect.
