Now, when was the last time I travelled? Oh-yes, across the sea from West Malaysia to East Malaysia, Sabah (Sabah Part 3 & Sabah Part 1). Prior to that, end year 2019, North India (New Delhi & Varanasi). Why do people like me travel? I travel for sightseeing, I travel for food venturing, I travel for meeting people, but, aha, least on my list? Shopping. Done and dusted. Oh-well, one of the realities of travelling? The more you travel, the least you shop, or you hardly anymore? Now, coming back to this trip of my mine, and as I have already mentioned, another solo-travelogue. Solo as in without my hub, my family, neither my friends. Basically, I hopped into a tour, alongside, a countable number of tour acquaintances, and the rest, who cares. The point is, you can't avoid people, all sorts of people and for travelogues, the same story as well.
Off to KLIA 1 on this particular day, and by the time we checked into our hotel in New Delhi, darkness has swarmed and when its winter, sky gets darker even earlier. Past 12am, and after quick shower, I crashed on bed. My room? Just enough space for one person. Otherwise, I beg to differ if I had to share with another. What about the ambiance? No, nothing to complain about for the sake of complaining. Neat, spic and span, and oh, oh, all lights lighted up in full force as if its "The Festival Of Lights" in my room. But why? Well, the fear of darkness whilst sleeping alone, and in case, creepy evil carnivals, make their presence known from nowhere. Lights in full force, for me, is a norm whenever I stay alone anywhere for the matter.
Thank god, thanks to the gods in New Delhi, nothing rocked and rolled me out of bed, next morning after showering, hotel buffet breakfast. How was food? Logically, the first meal in a new country? Will always be meaningful, somewhat to a certain extent. Then again, how different can hotel buffet breakfast in North India be? You tell me please? Oooppps!
Shimla - to be continue in the next travelogue.
