Aaagayathil boogambam...
Arputhangal aarambam....
With that "Sayonora" song, from Ninaithaaley Inikkum, on my lips i boarded my first International flight. Onsite chance news ketta udaneye naan parakka aarambichiten...Manasila. First time flight journey...evlo dreams...i stay next to airport..after i sent my passport to travel desk for visa processing...whenever i saw a flight taking off..i was wondering which one wud be mine.. :)..the day finally came..with lots of confusions and last min hiccups i finally got go ahead for the trip and managed to board the flight.kudukara deivam kooraiya pichikitu kudukumnu solrathu very true...till that time i never boarded an intl flight...but for this trip alone i had to take 9 flights up and down...first flight frm blr to mum was scary as i was awaiting my passport at mum intl airport..sec one frm mum to delhi was relaxed and it was evening. so cudnt see much..delhi to vienna was thrilling...lots n lots of kids with their parents were going for vacation to switzerland and france and england and wow...name a place in europe there was some one or other goin on a vacation..no wonder India is a hot country...night changed into evening and again into night...:) fluffy white evening clouds gave way to dark sheets of darkness..soon i slept and suddenly awoke to find the golden yellow rays of early morning sun...wow..it was amazing...riding over the clouds, bathed in nascent, unpolluted sunlight was wondering had i been flying outside where would my shadow fall :)...the moment it touched dwn in vienna..pei pasi...dint had anything on flight for obvious reasons..and was starving...went out for a quick gulp of coffee only to find everything written on german...finally managed to find a coffee shop with some card in english...cold coffeengara perla oru kodumaiyaana black color liquida kudihcaparum pasiye poidichi...wen i got down in warsaw it was chilly...super weather...cold and sunny at same time...was shivering in bright sun...fmr warsaw boarded one dubba flight to wroclaw...it was like a NATRAJ geometry box with wings and wheels...cramped for space...was scared for the first time whether it wud reach safely....it did...and rest was history...return journey was made even more memorable for a big goof up by my mate...now why i remembered abt the trip now...two things...its exactly an year since i went..and i travelled on my birthday... :) since me and my trip celebrated anniversary recently thot of blogging abt it...
