Adventures of miss little Gini Part 3

Suggestion: Before you proceed, make sure you read Parts 1 and 2

Late in the night, I landed in Atlanta. Honestly, I was a little (just a little) nervous at that moment… more because my phone was dead.

Thank Karan that he booked a nice hotel for me and I had a place to stay in this new unexplored city. I took the shuttle and rode to the hotel. “Nice!” I said. And once I got to the hotel, my nervousness faded away. Completely. I was back to being myself, in fact better.

“Welcome to Marriott hotels Ms. Bhardwaj, hope you have a great night”

Ah! That felt so good… after a tiring journey, I finally had a relaxed night in the super comfi bed and nice smelling linens. No e-mail, no phone. I felt the peace that a person would feel only after he dies. Ah! So good…

Next day:

Good Mooooooooooooooorning Atlanta! Here I come…

Checked out of the hotel, took the train I had a blast in the city… country’s biggest aquarium, downtown Atlanta, Lenox mall, train station food court and for that matter, just the feel of an unknown city. I was overwhelmed.

My mind was over flowing with thoughts; memories, comparisons, nostalgia, excitement, plans, questions and what not. Besides battling with the millions and millions of thoughts running in and out of my mind, I spent the entire day, going around the town and striking mini-conversations with the strangers. I even got to play the guess-my-age game with a bunch of people on the way. Risky eh!

Finally I saw my dream of traveling alone, come true. Tourism, maps, trains, shopping, nice peaceful lunch, reading… Perfect!

Who wouldn’t look forward to such a Monday??

P.S. For pictures, check facebook.

Finally I took my flight back to Peoria. And my journey ended with a healthy conversation with an intelligent man from Accenture. I love interesting meaningful conversations. I couldn’t think of a better way to conclude this little adventure.

Finally at eleven at night, I was back home. Not tired at all… Just content and delighted! I did loose some time, money and my very faithful sweat jacket during this trip. But I still returned satisfied, with plans of my next vacation running through my head…
That’s how we are – me and my life – just completely unpredictable!

That night when I went to bed, all I could think of, was to thank god for such a wonderful time and making my life just the opposite of boring.

I love you god!
