My Trip to.....

Well… well… like I said. I am slisha crazy. Guess wat! I went for a tour to kulu manali. At least that’s where I was supposed to go. But I landed up somewhere else.
We planned for a 14day trip. I aint too much of a traveler so I had a lotta trouble digesting the fact that we’ll be gone for weeks. But then we did go. On 12th June we took off by plane to hyd and stayed for a few days. We went to Basar on one of those days. And I even got to hang out with a few of IITM hyd junta on one of the days. Then we went to Delhi to directly get on a tour bus. This bus is supposed to take us to Shimla to Manali to Rohtag pass to Kulu to Chandigarh and back to Delhi in 6days.
I missed a point. The bus. Well. I get sick in bus. But I can manage… on plane road. My sis too is shaky with buses. So we went to Shimla by that bus, not plane road, but Ghat road. We were supposed to continue to Manali. But we freaked out and stubborn at that. Soooo… We dropped off in Shimla. Searched high and low, but no accommodation available. So we took a bus down to Chandigarh. Stayed in my dad’s bank guesthouse for 2 days, and in the tour hotel for another two days. And finally joined the tour bus from Chandigarh to Delhi.
So that was the funny part. Aint so funny? I demand you laugh.
Anyway that’s not the end of the trip. We reached Delhi. The next day we went flew to Varanasi. Stayed there for a coupla days. Came back to Delhi. Here I met a blast from the past, an old school friend whom I lost touch for nearly 6 yrs. And finally we flew to hyd where sis flew to Bangalore and we flew to Vizag. And btw… planes make sis sick, and my ears ache.
So basically, by road I get sick, by air my ears split, by train? Well train aint so bad. Except even after I get off it I feel the rhythmic rocking for at least 24 hrs. I never traveled by sea, but I am sure it’ll make me sick.
Not much of a traveler, am I?

  4. The global economic meltdown has taken its toll on almost all the industries across the globe. Developing countries like India badly suffered in the wake of inflation and recession. Business, that was coming in from the developed countries particularly in the field of IT dropped down drastically triggering off a series of reactions in related industries. Along with business travelers, the number of leisure tourists also dwindled partly because of the sagging economy and partly because of the horrifying attacks of 26/11 in Mumbai. Places of cultural and historical importance like Vishakhapatnam that tourists used to frequent, saw a crucial drop in the number of leisure travelers recently and the occupancy rate of the hotels also went down. Even the start up hotels in Vishakhapatnam, in spite of lowering their rates are witnessing a low occupancy rate. The occupancy rate of the budget hotels in Vishakhapatnam as with the rest of the country has seen as high as a 30% fall in the occupancy rates. Known as the “Jewel of the East Coast” Vishakhapatnam is a very important industrial hub apart from being a tourist destination. In addition, it is very well connected to the capital of Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad which is one of fastest growing IT hubs of the country. It is only natural therefore that there are quite a many top class business hotels in Vishakhapatnam. However, the current economic condition has changed the complete scenario and has affected the hospitality industry also.
