Being an insurance agent I have a very busy schedule. But I am also a fun loving and friendly individual. Hence I make it a point to squeeze out some time from my professional life and indulge in social activities with friends and family. I love to travel and this vacation I planned a trip to the beautiful state of Jharkhand. In this post and those following it I will be sharing some pages from my travel diary which include my wonderful experiences at Jharkhand.

The very first thing that come on our list while planning for a trip is the travel route or means of communication and the place of accommodation in the city we are travelling to. I have travelled to a number of destinations and hence have quite an experience of making online reservations. The travel app available on windows or android interface serves as a very convenient and clutter free tool to make online hotels and flight bookings. Out of all the airlines I have travelled with Jet Airways is my most preferred option.

The airline is a leading name in the aviation sector due to its world class in – flight services. I was not able to find a direct flight from Jaipur to Jharkhand so I had to travel via two routes. Firstly I boarded a flight at the Sanganeer Airport Jaipur that took me to the Indira Gandhi international airport at New Delhi. Hereafter the next flight that I boarded from the Delhi airport flew me to my destination at the Birsa Munda airport in Ranchi.

My journey was extremely comfortable and the on – board meals served by Jet airways were delicious. Hence I reached Ranchi afresh and headed towards the hotel that I had booked for my stay at the city. I booked the Hotel Emerald via online booking facilities offered by this hotel. Thanks to the travel app making flight and hotel reservations have become so much easier and faster. You can also check your bookings history on the popular travel apps and compare all the possible alternatives available.
I have sold numerous insurance policies to various strangers in my life and taken a lot of blessing. But I need a break, a holiday to give myself a little bit of alone time to introspect and rejuvenate. I couldn’t think of any place to visit better than the sweetest with the sweetest people Kolkata. I planned my trip and carefully manufactured an itinerary to ensure I cover every place that stands out in the beautiful city. I booked a ticket for my west journey from jaipur to howrah junction kolkata by ju hwh supfast, packed my bags, put on my holiday cap and set out for this much needed voyage.

I reached Jaipur Junction at 2:05 which left me five minutes to catch the train which was scheduled to depart at 2:10. Luckily the train got late by 10 minutes and I was able to board the train without any problems. I had a comfortable window seat and my bags filled with dry snacks. My fellow travelers included a married couple, a south Indian engineer and a medical student going to visit his family back in Kolkata. It was a really memorable journey as I connected with each and every one. The engineer took the liberty to show us the amazing tricks he could do with a deck of cards.

I was shocked how he could have guessed the card I was holding in my hand. The student turned out to be an amazing singer when he mesmerized me with an old Hindi movie song which happened to be my favorite. The train was superfast in the literal meaning of the word. I spent a lot of time of my long journey playing with the cute baby that married couple had. He was born just nine months ago and was the cutest little thing in the world I had ever seen. It’s funny how you meet strangers in a journey and develop a connection with them.
A connection that even brings tears in your eyes sometimes when your reach your destination and part from each other. My my west journey from jaipur to howrah junction kolkata by ju hwh supfast was memorable and as I reached the destination, I felt the journey went by in the blink of an eye. Time just flies when you are having a good time. I took a pre paid cab to my hotel, checked in and freshened up. Now I was set to explore this beautiful city.
