A Weekend Trip to Yercaud

Every Year from our team We used to go for team outing. We have our best moments in there. All the days we talk about the project, about office. These are the two or three days we forget about office and speak other than office. Every time we book the train/Bus tickets, hotels and local transport in advance.

This year we planned for Yercuad. This is the first time am visiting Yercaud. In  my team they visited yercaud 5 years ago. We started planning two months before. This time we had only two days. So the tour was planned on 8th and 9th of September. The train ticket, Hotel and 21 seater bus for Local transport was booked before.

At the hotel

The Party Started on Th Night itself. One guy from our team gave treat on Friday night. The train was started on 11:00PM. The train reached Salem around 6:15 am. From Salem Railway Station we traveled to the hotel via the 21 Seater bus. We had the breakfast and we started to visit the tourist places. First we went to the pakoda point.The pakoda point was located in the top of the hill. The View was amazing. We had some snapping there. Then we went to Rose garden. After that we returned to Hotel. While returning we bought a Cricket bat and two balls to play cricket in hotel.

In evening we started playing cricket. It continued till night. I had the great time in playing cricket. I remembered my college days. In my college days my friends used to bunk the class and they come to my room. We used to play cricket in our terrace. we used to have lot of fun in those days. We used to follow the gilly cricket rules. The Rules are:

1. One Pitch catch was Out.
2. If the batsman loses 3 balls continuously, he was out.
3. If the batsman hit 6, he is out.
4. Winner team will bat first.
5. If we have odd number of players, one player will bat and bowl for both the      teams. We call him as joker.

In the hotel we followed some of the rules. We had lot of fun while playing cricket. We used to laugh all the time. 

In Sunday Morn the driver took us to a hill top. We had some photo sessions and started playing cricket in the hill top. It was a new experience playing in the hill top. Thanks for my Senior PM Elan ( He only suggested to get bat and ball to play cricket in hotel). We played cricket till noon and went to Boating.

This is the second time i was into boating. Me and my colleague Varun went for the ride. The Ride was amazing. While starting from that place we were surrounded by mist. Every time i used hear from the people that mist will cover us in the hill stations so that we cant even see whats in front of us. This is the first time i experienced that.

For Night dinner driver stopped the bus near the Salem bus stand. Some of us planned to get parota. So we started searching the parota stall. We were walking for more than 1Km. We did not found a single parota stall. All we found is the star hotels near the bus stand. Atlast we found the parota stall and bought the parota and returned to bus. While returning we found a parota stall near to the place where we parked the bus. Everyone was like Ahhhhhh!!!!!!. If we might have found that stall at the begining, we might have not walked for a long time. The train to Chennai was started around 9 PM and reached Chennai by 4:30 AM. 

We may had the tour for just 2 days. But the memories were last for long time. No one will forget the fun we did in the tour. We may not be together after few years. But when we see each other or when we start a talk about the tour, Everyone will remember the good moments in all the tour.
