It had been a long-cherished dream to drive through a continent or at least a country! So, when we were expecting a week-long holiday for Eid Al Adha (also called Bakri Eid in South Asia), Vinod – my husband, suggested driving through Europe.
I wasn’t excited about it initially because I had researched in great detail (phew!) about the scenic train journeys in Switzerland. After all, I didn’t want my research to go waste!
Yet, I could not convince Vinod. No one can. So, there again, I started afresh; researching about driving through Europe.
I was browsing through SUVs, premium cars, large cars, medium cars…. And inspiration started coming to me! Should I go for an open roof car and experience a slice of life from the epic DDLJ?
I looked at the charges and reminded myself about humility, staying grounded and being thankful for what I have! I reminded myself of all the other fun I could have with that money. Finally, we settled for the cheapest in the fleet, ‘Mercedes-Benz A-Class or similar’. Now, that doesn’t sound bad either! So yeah! I booked a ‘Mercedes-Benz A-Class or similar’.
Read about where we drove to in the ‘Mercedes-Benz A-Class or similar’ on my blog later.
