It’s been more since we all are locked at home, and it’s necessary there is no point in risking life of your loved once. So it’s the same case with us, we were at home and wishing that all this should come to an end as soon as possible.
But my Sister’s (in-law) marriage got fixed, though all of us were super excited but managing this in this pandemic was a big question. All necessary precautions were being taken from the last one year, still we trusted some alternate precautionary medicines and planned a road trip for the function.
Own car is always safer than train or any other means of transportation. So our FIAT was ready for long Nagpur to Gwalior Road Trip.
It was an awesome experience. And for me, Road Trip has always been my favourite. I can drive for hours just want my better half with me, though kids barely let us talk. however, we steal some time when they are sleeping, playing or eating.
Preparation for the trip
Car bed : Best option when travelling with kids, they can sleep, play , jump and they enjoy it most.
Lots of food, colour books and colours, some toys, etc etc etc
Tools, puncture kit, puncture sealant, air pump, charger etc
That’s all I remember!!
And yes lots and lots of luggage as we were going to a wedding.
And as planned we did it in one go! We started at 8:30 am and we were at Gwalior at 09:00 pm. Though it’s not recommended, it’s not very comfortable, and it’s hell tiring but Covid-19 made us do that also I did not want to unload that luggage again, which took me half an hour to load.
I don’t know driving could be boring for some people for me, it’s pure fun, it was 725 km drive, we managed to get a decent mileage of 18.6kmpl with a 1368cc car, driving was at 70-80km/hr speed.
We took 1 lunch break of half an hour, and 7-8 5mins breaks just to relax my shoulders, they just froze when we reached Gwalior. But I think around 350-400km drive is both enjoyable and not very tiring, and that’s what we did on our return journey.
Best, this is the only word which can describe the marriage function. Lots of enjoyment, dance , fun And great food. All was done in view of covid-19 norms with minimal guest , etc
Lots of quality time spent with great people. Lots of golden memories has been created which will last for life time.
And everyone was just packed at their places and got to enjoy after a very long time, so this vacation was very special.
Even after taking all the precaution and preventive care when I returned back I was tested positive for corona virus. Though, I am asymptomatic and just got tested as per the protocol but still this disease in highly infectious and also unpredictable and it’s quite possible that alternate medicines helped me to remain asymptomatic and my family negative.
So, here I am waiting for my quarantine period to end and passing my time writing blogs.
