I was 4 since I started taking trips, with family, friends, friends in the form of cousins….!
9 out of 10 trips were never planned…haha, the most amusing part is a true traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent upon arriving!
It used to be so instantaneous, and my family members be like : “Chalo, let’s go on for a trip!”
“Where : pata nahi, let’s just leave and the roads will decide the destination..” (okay… That was quite a little dramatic, haha) No, but seriously, trust me, my family are such gypsy’s that trips and picnics are like oxygen to us , Hahaha, and the most prime reason is, it keeps us all connected!
Picnics come in all forms and they’re magical things because you don’t really have to follow rules or etiquette – simply sit in the sun or the shade of a mossy tree, take off your shoes, remove your tie and lie back in the cool grass, all while enjoying delicious treats and the company of loved ones.
We are so crazy for road trips and our timings are always so prompt, kheekheee, never it has been scheduled, at times I have sacrificed my deep solace sleep, “aaarrrgghhh” for the trips…My dad wakes me and my mom up and tells us to dress up and pack our bags ‘quick’ in that electrifying voice… Hehe. My dad have an immense relish for tours..!
I can never explain in words how stupefying are all the trips we have taken till now…!
Those high spirits, cheer, laughter, livelines, enthusiasm, zest ….etc etc are never expressible!
And… We always have this kind of competition between us as in who’s gonna play the best songs all over the journey… And I’ve always won (no doubt!!) as I’ve got the best taste in music… Ahheemm!!
You know.. My aunt always have asked me for my playlist and she locates my songs in her iPod, I mean whyyyy!! I hate sharing my songs with anyone… It’s as if I own all of them!
It doesn’t really matter WHERE you go for a picnic, just be sure to go, because it’s good for your soul.
I saw a quote somewhere that went something like “Happiness is like a potato salad that, when shared with others, becomes a picnic.” That sure sounds like happiness to me!
