What can be more fun than celebrating your first wedding anniversary at a beautiful, serene & romantic place like a beach side. I & my husband celebrated our first anniversary holidaying for four nights and five days at the beautiful Andaman Islands; starting with the capital city, Port Blair.
I and my husband initially decided to take honeymoon package for our trip. But we are too moody to follow timely rules and regulations that come along when traveling in groups. So we dropped the idea and decided to go ahead by ourselves.
We took an early morning flight from Delhi and via Kolkata, we reached Port Blair at around 10:30 am. This is where my first and biggest shock came along. My JIO sim had no network. My husband’s Airtel was working just fine. I felt cheated and betrayed by Reliance. 😀 I kept thinking of buying a new SIM all the way to the hotel but kept it inside me. No; I didn’t share it with my husband thinking I will accommodate with Wi-Fi internet connection at the hotel (after all we were there on vacations). I convinced myself by by questioning who would I want to call when I have my better half with me?!
We reached our hotel and within 15 minutes upon arrival in Andamans my heart broke twice. This time all my plans of accessing Wi-Fi were crushed as there is no internet access in the rooms. One has to go in the hotel lobby to connect to the poor, tired Wi-Fi with almost 2G-like speed being shared by internet craved souls sitting in the lobby waiting for internet to connect.
I was also upset with all the bloggers whose posts I had read about the beautiful Andamans and all the amazing things to do here. Nobody wrote about this internet problem. Why? Why would you do that? Come on.. we all need internet to update Instagram stories and Whatsapp statuses, don’t we? Jokes apart, my husband faced serious issues accessing his important emails. Now, that’s important stuff.
Anyways, enough of my disappointing story. Upon my husband’s encouraging words and my determination to stay phone-free till our trip. I accepted the challenge and began our vacations with Day 1 at Port Blair with Cellular Jail being our first stop along with a little bit of sight-seeing through the city.
