How I Won A Trip To Austria

Miracles do happen that too in the time of the pandemic. Last month, on the occasion of the Austrian National Day, the Austrian Embassy in New Delhi conducted a mega quiz competition. And somehow I came across the competition on the Facebook page of the Austrian Tourism Department.

After few days I received a call from the Embassy that I have won the mega contest. As expected, I was on cloud nine. 🙂 It was really a big moment for me. I was completely gobsmacked when I heard the news. I just hope I will be able to explore Austria next year. Wish me good luck. Luck matters !

In the past, I too have won a couple of travel competitions. One memorable trip to Malaysia and a luxury getaway in Shimla.

Goa’s Gorgeous Butterfly Beach

It was my birthday and I wanted to explore a lesser-known beach of Goa. A tea-stall owner, who served me copious amount of tea in the morning, suggested me to visit Butterfly beach, which I instantly accepted. Some fisherman in Agonda offered to take me around that beach for a sum of Rs2,000, which I politely declined. My good Samaritan, the tea-stall owner, guided me to reach that place. It was May – a typical hot and humid Goan weather.

I rented a scooter and set off my journey towards the beach. After driving 1-2 kilometres on a deserted stretch with no one in sight except vast forests as company, I began to have fear of losing my way and exactly that happened. I lost my path. With no sign boards and people to assist in finding direction, this was bound to happen.

The roads were terrible. While randomly driving, I saw a jeep full of people. I told them about my destination and sought their help in finding my way. They happily asked me to follow them, as they too were heading towards the same beach.

After driving few kilometres I finally reached the beach. The turquoise water quickly erased my pain caused due to my tortuous drive to the beach. Other than me there were couple of travelers, who soon left the area. I was left all alone, lounging on the beach and soaking up the sun, which was nothing less than pure bliss. After spending around 1-1/2 hours, I left the place. While returning I took a wrong turn and again lost the path. However, somehow I managed to reach my hotel.
