Pondicherry – Day 2

Hello guys. I hope you have read about DAY 1 of my trip. So we wanted to all touristy things on the second day of the trip. Also it was my sister’s birthday (Belated Happy Birthday!) so we wanted it to be productive. We had a lazy start to the day and head to the main city and reached there by around 12 noon.  The first thing we wanted to do was to visit the famous Ganesh temple and Sri Aurobindo Ashram (they are very close to each other). But there are timings which you need to keep in mind which we din’t! Also the Ashram is shut during lunch time. So we couldn’t go inside. So we decided to first have lunch and then look around a bit and then see the places. So after lunch dad dropped us to roam around. The manufacturing factory of HIDESIGN is located in Pondicherry, also they have a beautiful store there. We had to go there. Then we did some street shopping at Jawahar Lal Nehru street. They have decent stuff. We then head to Mission Street and let me tell you it’s the most beautiful place. The street is filled with French architectural houses and buildings. Its very clean. We were lucky the weather was good which made it look even more beautiful. There are a lot of shops there and you can buy very good stuff there. Almost a lot of shops were owned by the Ashram. I wanted to buy incense sticks and candles and head to one of their stores. It was beautiful and smelled like divine inside. My cousin picked up a beautiful candle stand and floating candles and I picked up bath soaps and candles. We finally went to the temple. And then we went to the ashram(Its Sri Aurobindo’s samadhi). The ashram is one peaceful place. What was more fascinating was the people’s devotion for Sri Aurobindo. People bowed and prayed with respect. The place is quiet and full of positive energy. I loved seeing how people can be so devoting and believe in peace and harmony. By the time we were done with all this, we were super tired and wanted to take some rest. We head back to our hotel and slept. At night we got all dressed up and had dinner at the resort’s restaurant (let me tell you that the menu for buffet that day was horrible and we ended up eating bad food!). After the bad dinner we just slept! That was day 2 for you.

Pondicherry- Day 1

Hola chicas. If you have been following me on twitter and instagram, you would know that I was vacationing in Pondicherry (now known as Puducherry) . I had posted a few pictures and said a few things about my trip. But im gonna blog my entire trip dividing it into days. And a special post listing the do’s and dont’s of the trip.
So we decided to go to Pondicherry by car. It takes about 5 hours from Erode (my hometown) to reach Pondicherry via car. We left in the morning and reached by afternoon and immediately had lunch there. We stayed at Club mahindra big beach resort. Its a huge property with cottages kinda rooms and the best part is they have the private beach. So we decided to take rest for some time and then thought of seeing the beach. We got dressed up and headed to the beach. It was so different. It was deserted and clean and peaceful and beautiful! I have been brought up in Chennai so for me beach was not something new. But pondicherry beaches are different! If peace is what you want, then pondicherry is the place for you. We spent some quality time there, clicked a few pictures and returned as they close the entry to the beach after 6:30 due to safety concerns. My sister, my cousin and myself dint want to waste a minute and then headed to the pool.  Spent some time there and left super hungry. We again got dressed up and left to the Pondicherry city for dinner. We returned back tired and dosed off! That was day 1 for you!
Wait as I blog about my entire stay in Pondicherry.
