My Journey to Capital of India – Delhi by Mumbai Rajdhani Express

Being a young guy I have always loved travelling and visiting new places and during the winter holidays this time, I planned to visit Delhi and accordingly booked Mumbai Rajdhani Express from Surat. Everybody knew that the Rajdhani Express was among the best trains in India and so I decided to travel from Surat to the capital on this very train. I boarded the train at 7:40 pm and it took some 13 hours from Surat to reach Delhi. I was extremely excited as I was visiting Delhi for the very first time. The train was on time and I made myself comfortable after boarding it. I also read a few details about Delhi and its famous destinations, which I knew would help me in connecting with the local people and gather useful info about all those places.

The Rajdhani Express is always known for its hospitality and various services and after boarding the train I was welcomed with a cup of tea. That was soon followed by dinner, which was extremely delicious. I chose some unique items from vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian dishes. Meanwhile, I also had a chat with a senior person who sat just opposite to my berth. He told me that he is working in Delhi. I got to learn lots of facts and different things about Delhi and that increased my excitement for visiting the place. After getting to know much about the place, I decided to take a nap.

I woke up at around 7 am in the morning and found that the train was about to reach its destination. Delhi has always been an attraction for tourists for its rich culture and ancient history. As expected, the train reached the destination ten minutes before the scheduled time . The kindness and generosity of the support staff deserved a mention. After getting down at the station, I started to my hotel, where I had booked my accommodation. Accordingly I took an auto from the station to my hotel.
