It's Saturday!!!!

Yes it's Saturday & i have nothing much to do except for watching Mardaani, & planning my next trip.
Well i read an awesome statement somewhere " Take vacations as many as you can coz you can always make money, but u can't always make memories" but to make these memories you require those monies :P

Guess people forget in philosophical setting to be practical. But won't it be nice to dream that off & to fulfill those dreams, so basically save up a bit of your salary, even if you could save at least 1/4th of it for next 3 or 4 months you can at least make a good & economical trip to some awesome places in India.

At times when i watch a hindi movie or even a hollywood flick i just wish i could just fly off to that beautiful place for some peace. In a city like Mumbai where we are on run every second to catch a local, a bus or a metro, to reach office coz our lives have become like a Robot - get up in the morning at 7 get ready leave home try to catch a train, metro or get stuck in traffic try to reach office on time & than evening's again run coz trains so overcrowded even if you are a minute late.

We run to reach on time in office or home, we are always on the run when in Mumbai. & the best way to distress ourselves is get drunk at a great pub till late hours & than get up on  sat with a hangover. Well that idea sometime back went down well with me too, but than i realized I'm 25 right now & i haven't seen even 1/4th of India forget the world.

I can get drunk or be sloshed for the rest of my time left on this earth, but i won't get this time back to explore India for starters. Naah I'm not here to give advice to follow suit but i definitely wanna explore!!

Random trip for Food

The trip started as usual with me being on time by 1 minute (jab we met style, but not really). With tthe thought that Surat would be a place like some village not much a developed city or town.

How would anyone start their day or trip after arriving at their destination?? looking out for tourist spots or anything else, well we went looking for food - khamni & the famous Locha of Surat. Locha though a weird name for food but still it was a very heavy Locha, a baked flour kind of food filled with loads of Amul butter & spices, to accompany it with green chatni & onions. It may be heavy for Bombay stomach but it was a pretty full breakfast to start off.

Though our may reason for a trip to surat was FOOD. Obviously when in gujarat you should never miss their food, try every damn dish, that's the least you could do to respect that land :P  Well our next stop was dumas beach which actually has nothing to be called as a beach but still people their call it as a beach.

Dumas beach maybe missing a bit of water but Peace was available in plenty & fresh air :) After all this typical surti dishes it was turn of some exotic dishes at Kafe Red (VR Mall) which has plenty of yummy food on their menu, totally international standards. From sizzlers to Mirchi Shots everything was pretty yummy. My advice to peolpe traveling to Gujarat you should seriously stop by Kafe Red Eatery & try some mouth watering food.

And how can we forget of shopping when we are in Surat ;) so after tons of shopping bags & awesome dinner at Kafe Red it was time for some serene moments to capture the last of Surat Moments as we had a train to catch at 1 am. The Marind Drive of Surat was so beautiful, serene & calm just like our very own Marine Drive of Bombay. The last glance at the Tapi River just summed up the trip to Surat.

& to end such a beautiful trip on a sweet & icy note we had Sitaphal shake at a very famous milk shake spot near the Surat station.  Kuch din toh Guzaroo Gujarat Mai!!!!
