Hi, this is yet another account of my travel experience and this time I connected my official trip with leisure. An audit officer by profession, financial accounting is my forte, and I love to improve my organisational skills too. Since my job demands a lot of travelling, I joyfully trot along anywhere I want to. I always vindicated my choice of destination, which was mostly fixed officially. Like always, my train travel from Patna to Amritsar was fixed and I had two of my buddies joining me.
We booked AC two-tier tickets online to travel by Amritsar Mail (13005). I started my travel early in the morning with as much zest as I do every time. I greeted my friends at the Patna station and we got into the train, which departed exactly at 4.20 am. The seats were quite comfortable and the compartment was clean. I am particular about the cleanliness and so travel mostly in the upper class.
We were quite prepared since we had to be in the train for a day and night before we reach Amritsar. Of course, there are many Patna to Amritsar routes, which are quicker; nevertheless, we prefer to travel in this for some reasons.
We had some quick snacks when the train crossed ARA junction and talked about our plans at Amritsar, which beckoned with its lush green surroundings and bustling towns. It was time for some reading, brushing up with some daily events, and within no time I was browsing through the newspaper.
The train stopped at the Varanasi Junction at 9.15 am and we had our breakfast, which we had carried from home. The roti with channa was quite filling and I had some sweets too. In the mean time, we had a guest, who was also to Amritsar. Being a regular visitor, he offered us some tips and places we could visit there.
Though it was a long journey, we did not feel any tiredness. The train reached Rampur Junction at 8.30 pm and by the time it reached Moradabad Junction at 9.20 pm, we finished our dinner and got ready to sleep. Any Patna to Amritsar routes take you to the entire stretch of Uttar Pradesh, touch Haryana and enter Punjab.
