There is something classic about train journeys. As the train moves past the several villages and one peeps into the houses of the people who live along the railway tracks, one is bound to get into a philosophical mood.
The landscapes outside change as often as they do in our lives. From greens to yellows, from mountains to valleys, from crowded spaces to barren lands - you see it all along the journey in a train and in life. Then evening comes, and there are knocks for 'chai'. People pass through, some with whom you connect even if only for a brief while. I love train journeys. They give so many postcard like moments, that get etched in the memory long after the destination has arrived.
Minggu 3 februari 2019, 23:35 Wib. Terminal Bungurasih Surabaya-
Pertama kali ketemu Diana yg memakai carrier warna hijau dan mas @oshermanu carrier biru (kalogaksalahingat). Mereka satu-satunya orang orang yg bertanya asal saya; dari mana dan mau kemana, dari banyaknya manusia diterminal malam itu~ (mungkinkarenakasian)
Setelah berjam-jam diterminal menunggu Bis yg mengarah ke jogja tidak kunjung kudapat :( Mereka lalu menawarkan bantuan, "Kita ga usah disini nunggu bis gak bakalan dapet" kata mas gondrong
Singkat cerita; kita meninggalkan terminal itu dan mendapatkan Bis walau tak bersamaan, setidaknya saya sudah sampai di Jogja waktu itu.
Note: Kalo maen ke Makassar jangan lupa kabarin✌️

Sometimes to make sense of our present, we need to drift gently into the past. Truth be told, I had no expectations of Lucknow. Sometime ago @bhavz15 checked into Lebua Lucknow & I ended up making a mental note of it marking it as one of the places I needed to check into at least once in my life. Somehow Lucknow had slipped my travel radar despite all the years growing up there & my frequent re-visitations of India. One not so dark & stormy night this trip took shape. My well-travelled pal @devikagarg23 handed me the ultimate food & shopping list. Just 3 days before take-off @samarjodha connected me to @spiritualbuddha With that our party was set. In @eniko383 I found the dream travel mate, someone who was open to a heady sense of adventure in 45 degrees. I say it over & over again...like a stuck record almost...you haven’t experienced hospitality till you’ve experienced Indian hospitality. In a span of four unforgettable days & nights we got to live through it all - history, architecture, mind-blowing food, amazing people, sizzling night spots, a stunningly restored property we got to call home. If I were to sum up Lucknow in a singular line (impossible as it is) - I would say this is a city of Adaaa & Andaaaz striking all the right notes to effortlessly win your heart. To all the amazing friends I have in so many parts of the world - you make my life so complete that I am always gearing for the next adventure...for our lives are nothing but six degrees of separation separated by the next flight...book yours to Lucknow. Pity Scoot is discontinuing the SIN-Lucknow direct...but where there’s a will there’s always a way of finding your way. #thelucknowdiary#travel#journeys
