Let’s start it from the very beginning when I received a mail from IndiBlogger about the Zindagi meet at The Leela in Mumbai. I had joined IndiBlogger just a few months ago & hence this was my 1st meet. One is obviously excited for the 1st day of his school/college & so was I for my 1st meet.
What would the meet be all about? What kind of people would the fellow Bloggers be? Wouldn’t walking alone bore me? How am I supposed to dress? All such questions obviously tingled my mind, but the Monster of excitement ate them all 😀
Then I received another mail telling me to write a post about any journey of my life & if I was able to connect to the moderator, this would have won me a prize as well. There wasn’t much time awarded to share this experience since the meet was scheduled the very next day. This was my 1st meet, so how couldn’t I not participate! I always had it in my mind to write articles on my travel experiences & share it with my Viewers so that their journey to these places could turn even more amazing than mine. Unfortunately, due to some or the other reasons I never penned it down. There came this contest where I found the right time to post it 🙂 I wrote an article on my first trip after joining Engineering & it was a trip to Matheran with Gaonwale (friends).
Here is the link to it “This was just the Beginning !”
I was not the only one participating, there were many & they were a lot more experienced than me.
Just when I was about to leave for the meet, I got a call from Diana (from IndiBlogger) confirming my entry. I was pleased to know that they actually care & make sure that the one who has registered is actually coming or not. I left from my place i.e. Thane to reach the destination. Luckily Mumbai has Metro now which made my journey even more exciting. This was also the 1st time I was travelling via Mumbai Metro. Let me tell you, this Mumbai Metro is an Engineering Marvel. The Metro stations are super clean & the walls are painted with beautiful frescoes.
Finally, I reached The Leela. I thought I would be the one amongst few early birds here, but to my surprise there were already a good amount of Bloggers waiting at the entrance. These Bloggers are very punctual when it comes to business. We were served with delicious Lunch soon after we registered ourselves at the entrance. Obviously, I couldn’t connect to all the names of the dishes that were served. Some German, some Mexican, some don’t know what were they, but I enjoyed gulping it 😀
If the dish wouldn’t have been too heavy to carry, I would have gulped a bit of more food 😀
