It had been 15 long years since they had passed out from their school. But the memories of their school days and their childhood was still fresh. They cherished the moments which they had spent together , both in the school campus and in their homes.
But after the school they had just seem to have lost into the mad rat race of being “successful ” in their lives. Some tried being engineer, doctor, sportsman etc. Everybody wanted to get a well paid job , 6 digit salary, a beautiful house and well settled with their family members. Most of them had succeeded in getting it too but somewhere in their heart and soul there was a vacuum. A void, which longed for their school friends, the happy times they had spent together, the closeness which they had always missed in their lives.
Thanks to technology and social networking sites like orkut, facebook, whatsapp etc. they were kind of connected online but were missing the emotional touch which they otherwise so craved about. They were in different locations of the world , settled or working for a MNC .
In one of the late night whatsapp conversations they were having, Rakesh sent a message
“Hey guys , why don’t we meet somewhere ?”
“Where can we meet yaar ? We are in different locations of the world ” wrote Deepak.
” We also have a family and kids to take care of “, said Saurabh.
“Hmmmmm.. that’s a challenge ” …
” Hey, I have an idea , Why don’t we bring along our families for get together ? “, said Rakesh.
“Well, that’s a fantastic idea, but where should we meet ? ” Saurabh said.
” It has to be a place where our families and kids can enjoy along with us ” said Nanpara, who was just a silent listener in the group.
” Hey guys, what about Disney Land in Orlando ? ” said Akshay.
” Clap , clap … “
“What an idea sirji 🙂 ” All of a sudden excited messages started flooding the group.
” When will be the best time to go there ? ” Asked Nanpara.
“Well keeping in mind that we all are working in different countries and our kids are also going to school, we need to plan for a time when we all have holidays and can also get leaves without affecting much to work and studies..” wrote Rakesh.
“How about Christmas and year end holidays ? ” Wrote Deepak.
“That works for me 🙂 “
“me too “
” I am in “
” I am game “
Soon everybody agreed about the dates.
“Let me check the international flight options available for all of us ” said Rakesh. He started browsing the yatra portal for international flights options for everyone. After some research he sent mails to each person in the group.
“Hey guys I have sent you flight options for you . Please check your mailbox” wrote Rakesh.
” Nanpara, you wanted to do shopping in Dubai , right ? I have sent you flight option for that also . Kindly check “
“I have also sent you links about hotel options to stay in Orlando. We all will be staying in the same hotel. There is bus transport service which will provide pick and drop services to theme parks. ” Rakesh.
“Let me book tickets for 5 day visit to theme park, one day for each park “
“So guys , the plan is set. We all will be reaching to Orlando on 23 December, and will meet in the hotel. From next day we will visit the Disney land for 5 days. After that we will take road trip to Miami, see the sunset at Keywest and after celebrating the new year together will head back to our respective homes ” Wrote Rakesh with excitement.
“Yayyyyyy, we are finally meeting ” There was too much of excitement in the group.
All the friends are super excited about the trip and are now looking forward to meet and have a gala time together.
