Hello my lovely friends
Finallyyyyyy I am able to post this blog. I am reallyyyy thrilled to write about our trip to Pondicherry. Few months back during blogmas I wrote in My Christmas Wishlist that I wanted to go on a road trip with my husband. It was like I was a good girl last year because in that wishlist I got everything except a new laptop…So I believe I will make a tradition to write Christmas wishlist every year..Yay!!!!!!

This was a weekend trip. The weather was soooo beautiful. The day seemed like it was meant to be.We started early morning around 9 am. Its a 3 hour journey but we took lot of breaks in between. I have heard before that Pondicherry itself is an amazing place but the whole route to reach Pondicherry was an amazing experience. It was so greenery filled with beautiful picturesque locations. I don’t think words would be able to justify the phenomenal landscape.
So we reached Pondicherry around 1 pm.
We checked into our hotel. (I am not sure if I am supposed to share hotel details but it was a marvelous stay. The staff were really courteous. Overall it was a pleasant experience.
We were little bummed so we took a nap for 2 hours. So by 3:30 pm hotel people had given a list of places to visit. There were lot of choices but we decided to go to Auroville.It was around 10- 15 km distance from our hotel. We didn’t had much idea about this place. But when we reached it was crowded. When we entered there it was kind of different. Our whole tiredness by driving everything just vanished.
A Site Map here :
Everything there was distinctive. We were really stunned by the creativity filled in that place. The entry ticket was free . We just had to get a token. Only we had to pay for parking lot. We understood that we had to either walk or take bus to reach Matri Mandir. Me and my husband were little cynical about the whole situation. We decided to walk anyhow. But contrary to our opinion it was such a startling experience. There were lot of magnificent views throughout our walk.
We were walking through the woods. Actually we live in a city where it is polluted and there is less greenery around. So we were just admiring the tranquility this place was offering. This place was smelling like earth. I felt so much connected to nature. The air in this place is so fresh and rejuvenating. Oh my god!!! Such an amazing place…..If you ever happen to visit Pondicherry please never skip Auroville. You will really understand my feeling when you reach here.
Finally after walking through the woods we reached Matri Mandir. It was an astounding sight.
We forgot that we didn’t have lunch. So we stopped by a small cafe inside and had some dessert because we thought we would have a grand dinner. By the time we reached back to city it was getting dark. So we thought we would have our dinner and would go to Pondicherry beach.
I am really sorry it was so dark we were not able to capture good photos. This is the only one I got from that night.
We were really tired so we head back to hotel and slept well. Next day we had to check out by 12 pm so we decided to just roam around Pondicherry beach. The whole place had a French ambiance. First we decided to fuel ourself. We went to this small place and had waffles. It was veryyy delicious.
Later we just strolled around the places near beach. It was really colorful and lively. Lot of tourists were there and it was very amusing.
We spent some time in the beach. it was alluring sight for vision.
Later we check out from the hotel and returned back to home with lots of wonderful memories…..
