On the Road Again

Written by Gail Morris


Just like Willy Nelson, I could not wait to get onrepparttar road again.

After five years of marriage my husband and I had traveled to France, Florida, Missouri, Georgia andrepparttar 146920 Caribbean. We had also taken many weekend trips around my husbandís hectic work schedule.

That all changed January 16,1992 - or so we thought.

The next three months were a blur; bottles, diapers, and lack of sleep, times two. When I finally returned to work, after twelve weeks, my life had drastically changed.

My husband and I did not venture on another vacation for seven years. By that timerepparttar 146921 twins were seven and our youngest was two.

I quickly learned how traveling with our youngest children could be fun, exciting and definitely not tiresome. With a family of five our preferred mode of travel is driving.

We make our hotel stops safe, fun, and exciting by following some simple rules, and, with minimal planning, easy.

Exploring Himalayas

"A hundred divine epochs would not suffice to describe allrepparttar marvels ofrepparttar 146896 Himalayas." -Sanskrit Proverb

First we went to central railway station in Chennai. At that time we couldnít getrepparttar 146897 tickets to go to New Delhi. But we were determined to start our tour. So we decided to catch a flight. But immediately a person approached us and told us that he can get us tickets to New Delhi by train. But we had to bribe him some amount. We gotrepparttar 146898 tickets in an air-conditioned coach.

A special mention about railway journey-A long journey inrepparttar 146899 Indian Railways is always a great memory to cherish upon. Though Indian Railways is slow and it takes two to three days to reachrepparttar 146900 destination. The journey time is enjoyed by watching sight seeing and by eating lots of food that comes frequently inrepparttar 146901 train itself. Those people who are going to visit India, my advice is donít miss a long journey in Indian Railways. It is always cheap and enjoyable.

We reached New Delhi after 1 day and 2 nights. We stayed in Ashoka Hotel. We had to boardrepparttar 146902 train to Kalka to reach Shimla (gallery). The name ofrepparttar 146903 train is Himalayan Queen. It is very similar torepparttar 146904 seating arrangements in an airplane. The train is completely air-conditioned with chair car facilities. They gave cutlets and bread to eat. But that didnít suffice our hunger. Actually we expected either of south or north Indian meals. We reached kalka inrepparttar 146905 evening. From kalka we boardedrepparttar 146906 toy train. The train went for 5 hours and finally reached Shimla. Going in toy train makes one feel enjoyable. It goes very slowly. We can enjoyrepparttar 146907 natural sceneries andrepparttar 146908 high mountains of Shimla. While we went inrepparttar 146909 toy train, we ate Punjabi meals which included rice, Punjabi dhal, roti and subji.

There were many foreigners who came with us inrepparttar 146910 toy train. Foreigners always walk everywhere. I think this isrepparttar 146911 reason why they have a very good health. We stayed in Hotel Ashoka (Shimla), which is inrepparttar 146912 Mall road. We went for sight seeingrepparttar 146913 next day. No rice was available there in Shimla. Only chapatti was available in opulence.

In Shimla, we went to helipad (where helicopters land in). We couldnít see evenrepparttar 146914 people who were opposite to us (due to fog). In Shimla, we traveled in a maruthi omni car. While traveling, we could see many apple trees with so many apples. Roses were available in plenty alongrepparttar 146915 road side.

We booked a bus to Manali. Our journey started inrepparttar 146916 early morning at 6 am. The journey time from Shimla to Manali (gallery) is around 10 hours approximately. Various Hindi songs were played inrepparttar 146917 bus. We missed our breakfast. For lunch we were provided only with bread along with tomatoes sprinkled. During our bus journey, a small gushing water stream started accompanying us. Slowlyrepparttar 146918 gushing sound ofrepparttar 146919 water increased tremendously. The sound was more thanrepparttar 146920 sound of a beach. The bus stopped for tea break and everybody went nearrepparttar 146921 river. We washed our legs inrepparttar 146922 waters. The water was very pure.
