I am begining a weeklong tour to Darjeeing, Sikkim and Eastern Nepal on Wednesday. It will be a kind of a honeymoon trip for me as my beloved is joining me along with 18 others â€“ all relatives. We are taking our own vehicle and since we all are relatives, I hope a joyous tour.
Actually, we had a similar trip last year to Pokhara, Baglung and Chitwan which was so exciting that everybody of us ended saying that we had never been on such a wonderful tour. Accompanied by singing, dancing and joking, it was an unforgettable experience.
No two trips are similar still we all are hoping that this will be more exciting as the venues are interesting, and most of us had never visited Darjeeling or Sikkim.
In preparation of that trip, I got too busy on Tuesday. Had to go to Embassy of India twice for the permit to our bus and in between, I joined the rally held by the Federation of Nepalese Journalists to protest the abduction of Birendra Shah, a journalist in Bara district. He was abducted a month ago and rumors are that he has already been murdered.
Then, we had invited a few relatives to the dinner and my wife was too busy. I could only get around one hour to spend with them and that was a pity as it would have been much fun have I stayed longer.
Anyway, I am now dreaming about the days to come when I will be experiencing new things, places and enjoying the freedom from work!
