Most schools in India organize a yearly trip for their students, and during my 10th grade, my school took us on a 10-day trip to South India. At first, I wasn’t particularly interested in going, but a friend of mine convinced me to join. However, he later dropped out, leaving me with mixed feelings about the trip. I had never been on a trip with my friends before, so I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy it.
To my surprise, the trip turned out to be the most memorable one I have ever had. I gained valuable experiences, such as money management, staying healthy, and adapting to climate variations. We took a train from Warangal and first visited Kerala, a state that had been on my bucket list for a long time. Kerala is known for its lush greenery, high literacy rate, and numerous popular destinations. I was fortunate enough to visit many of these places with my friends, making the trip more enjoyable and memorable. During the day, we explored the area, and at night, we rested. But we also did many secret activities that made the trip even more unforgettable.
We visited some of India’s iconic places, such as Munnar, which is famous for its evergreen tea plants, Athirappilly Waterfalls, and Alleppey, a must-visit location that I had seen in many movies. However, experiencing it in person was far better than I could have ever imagined.
One of the most thrilling experiences was when a few of my friends and I were left behind in the hotel while the others went to a temple that would be closed if they arrived too late. Since the temple was on our must-visit list, we took a tuk-tuk and rushed to the temple. In our haste, none of us brought our phones or enough money with us. Fortunately, we arrived just in time, and those who had arrived early didn’t get to visit the temple because they had to wait longer. After completing our visit, we decided to go back to the hotel. However, we didn’t remember the hotel’s name or location, so we had to do several internet searches to find it. This day was the highlight of the entire trip.
Even now, I still feel like going back to South India with the same group of people. The trip provided me with unforgettable memories and experiences that I will cherish forever.
