At last I am able to start something. I had hoped to salvage the opportunity to write during my free time, if any, but could not. This journey is about Amritsar (Punjab), a small city in north India.
Within India most of the time I fly to my destinations even if they are personal trips, mainly for two reasons – convenience and lack of time. So as much as I love train journeys, I end up missing them.
This time when I saw I could afford to spend sometime to myself, I grabbed the opportunity of traveling by other modes of transport which take longer time but enrich one’s soul. And this turned out to be a unique experience in many ways.
Here are a few pictures of them.
Did you notice the luggage career on the autorickshaw ?
The autoricksaws generally ply on sharing basis. Look at the seats ! In all it can seat 10 passengers !
The overnight bus. Above are sleeper berths and below chair seats. Both are quite comfortable.
I am basically a flashpacker but when many of my readers (Indians & foreigners both) asked me about budget traveling in India and whether it is safe and convenient, I took this trip as a learning and guiding experience for all of us.
The story will begin from the next post. Stay tuned.
