A Trip Close to Heart, Pondicherry

The mental trip was done, several times, even before the actual one started! And yet, when the time came, I didn’t feel I was prepared for it. But in a better sense of the experience! The excitement was almost overwhelming and the trip that followed, didn’t disappoint! So, I started my Pondicherry trip on 28th March on a decent Friday evening, from Secunderabad. On arrival in Chennai, I boarded on my pre-booked cab to Pondi, reached Ginger Pondicherry, got refreshed and started visiting places I chalked down in my two days itinerary. The cafes, the Promenade, Auroville and 1-2 surprising finds, the treasures, on the way. Here is a picturesque memoir of my journey at the French Capital, in India.

AND the collectibles for my loved ones! I admit, I had most fun in purchasing these as each made me think of my friends’ choices and likes and about them 🙂

So, another night of refreshing sleep followed and I started for Hyderabad. Some moments that I could capture from the cab on the way to Chennai Central Station.

Thus, Pondicherry bid me adieu, with a bag-full of souvenir, a heart-full of sweet memories and a soul full of yearnings to return again 🙂
