Travelling and trips-trivia have always caught my attention and the thought of going for a drive on a beautiful boulevard or even on the smooth roads gives me an exuberant vibe. Thinking about a journey that was the best car journey that still continues to bring the best memory as far as odyssey is concerned has to be my trip with my friends to Triyuginarayana in the state of Uttarakhand.
So, this was a random plan and was not thought of for a long time. But, as it is said, ‘Unplanned trips turn out to be the best ones’, this trip held to this belief. After finishing our classes, all of my friends decided to excogitate a plan to go for a long trip together during the weekend. After some discussion, we all unanimously decided to start our journey to Triyuginarayan the very next day. We all had so much fun and frolics on the way and, of course, at the destination point, and reminiscing about that day brings a lot of memories and a punch of nostalgia.
Altogether seven people went on this trip and all of them were my classmates. On the way, we had a lot of fun, including enjoying the best playlist of the local music along with tons of games. We all brought a load of snacks to munch on along the way and all this made the beautiful journey through the snow-clad mountains an ecstatic experience.
Given the fact that we all were planning to go on a tour for the longest time till then and since it was the last year of our college, this trip was an amazing idea. However, owing to the suddenness of the plan we couldn’t find a reservation in trains or a bus to travel to the destination and thus we decided to take the car of one of my friends. Thankfully, that was the best idea. I wish I could relive those days once again with the same people.

Having a private car is to have a facile lifestyle and comfortable journey while travelling as one doesn’t have to go through the hassles of a public transportation system.
What are the benefits of public transportation?
Public transportation is apt for the ones who wish to carry out their transportation in a frugal and budget-friendly way. Cheap transportation is a significant advantage of public transportation.
What can we say about cars in the future?
The cars in the times to come would be automotive and self-driving. With the surge and waves of artificial intelligence and machine learning, self-driving cars would be displacing the present cars. Furthermore, considering the poor environmental conditions, cars would become more eco-friendly.
What about car ownership in the future?
In my opinion, car ownership wouldn’t be the same way as it is during the current times. Owing to the population outburst and burgeoning car owners, the ownership of the cars would be on a shared basis where car-pooling would be very frequent.
Eg.: The budget was frugal and he was a miser; hence he bought it.
