On a Friday night, 3rd March’ 17 I got a call from one of my friends. I accepted the call in excitement as I had a few things to tell her about but I was left stunned by what she said. She told me that we were going on a weekend trip the very next day and obviously, I said yes but it didn’t really matter as I was told that I am going rather than being asked. We’ve been planning a weekend getaway for a long time now but always had to cancel because of some reason or the other.
We left in the afternoon of 4th March’ 17 and were excited for an amazing spa weekend. Because you know we weren’t initially going on a road trip, the trip just turned into a road trip when we couldn’t find the resort. And it was the best thing that happened to us. We enjoyed the amazing Yamuna Express Highway as we clicked lots of pictures. After all the driving we were finally there, we had booked a mini villa in the Shri Brij Radha Vasundhara Resort of Vrindavan. The resort was mesmerising, it was also calm, peaceful and picturesque. All in all, it was true to its pictures online and it’s selling point. We were in the resort for 17 hours and out of the total we slept for 7 hours because you know, night time.
The next day i.e. 5th March’ 17 we woke up early to watch the sunrise and just roamed around trying to inhale as much fresh oxygen as we could and obviously clicked a lot of pictures. After that, it was breakfast time after that getting ready time and in the end checking out time. When we were leaving the resort and thought about our experience at the resort we could only manage to give the stay- 3.5 stars. It was at a perfect location, it was really peaceful and the food was also amazing but the service and the maintenance weren’t really on point.
Since we were in Vrindavan we had to go to at least one of the temples there so, we went to the Bankey Bihari temple. But unfortunately we were five minutes late and the temple was closed, not the whole temple only the gates to see the statue of the god. So for future convenience, we know that the temple close at 1 pm and then opens at 4:30 pm.
Now it was finally time to head back home and this time also we took the Yamuna Express Highway and enjoyed the amazing view.
I was back home by almost 6 pm with a calm mind and kickass pictures.
