#GirlyRoadTrip Day 0: Madness, bonding and nostalgia

After a crazy dash to the Delhi airport thanks to a truck turned turtle on NH8. Nupur and me took the flight to Mumbai with a distinct feeling that adventure was waiting for us with a vengeance!

Friday afternoon in Mumbai was dedicated to winding up Rachna’s house. After all, the trigger for the road trip was her big move back to Gurgaon. The three of us reached Juhi’s place one by one, after completing the errands that had fallen in our kitty. Juhidi as well call her is Nupur’s cousin, but also our buddy from the good old school days in Lucknow. Loads of nostalgia to fall back on, but also a genuine bonding. From sharing life experiences to politics and finally, just plain old giggle-fest, the stopover at Juhi’s was a perfect launch pad for the Girly Road Trip.

Gosh, even I will miss this house with the view!

Rachna and Nupur- While the last few cartons were being packed!

Brain dead, but trying to look like she's thinking! All that packing must have done her in!

  1. That’s a fun adventure..love the view of Mumbai. It’s so beautiful. Lovely pictures:)

  2. Reblogged this on my life's daily lessons and commented:
    2014 started with a bang with my decision to move back to Gurgaon from Mumbai. While I was still grappling with mixed emotions – the heartbreak for leaving a beautiful apartment and some really lovely people I met in my four years in mumbai was constantly fighting the excitement of moving back to friends and familiarity – the decision to drive back made this move more purposeful. So three of us – my best friends Mukta, Nupur and I (well assisted by the Google Maps lady) embarked on this awesome adventure on March 1st 2014. Lazy as I am about writing, I am reblogging Mukta’s blog with the day by day, bit by bit account of our #girlyroadtrip. Here goes Day 0.
