While the world was busy with
the talks of #MaggiBan, #DelhiMinisters, #FallingSensex, I was having a tiring
May in Office this year and thanks to the sleepless nights (or if I put it
better, ‘nights with less sleep’), I am planning to go on a vacation.
The traveler in me has been on
a hibernation mode, since last time I had a break-from-work vacation was in
December 2013 in the north-eastern parts of the country. Travelling is always
fun when the things that make you happy are with you. First and foremost thing for
me while planning for a vacation is getting the plans of our gang of friends. 
Gang of Friends
No vacation is good unless you have the crazy friends by your side. It
generally gets difficult to get the plans of 4 friends, working in different
companies, in sync but as they say where there’s a will, there’s a way. 
Simar ‘the Photographer’
Also, the photographer Simar refuses to take
a backseat whenever I am on vacation mode. I often prefer spending time in the
lap of nature and no wonder, photography comes naturally in the natural atmosphere.
So, a DSLR camera to capture the cherishable moments is a must in my luggage
bag.
Further,
whenever into a long vacation, I need to have my laptop with me, and no, not
for any official reasons, but since I need it to vacate the space in DSLR’s
memory card and to share the pictures.
As opposed
to my friends, I am an early riser and hence, a pair of running/ jogging shoes
is what I require to go for jog in the morning. I like talking to the nature
and morning is the best time for the conversation.  
Staple Food on Vacation – Maggi
Whenever
going on any trip, one thing Punjabis can never forget about is the food for
the journey. Whether it is a 2-3 hours journey or it is a day long road trip, we
carry loads of matthi achaar, namkeen, fruits etc. Whatever be the apetite of
the fellow travelers, he food we carry always wins the competition on what
lasts longer. Earlier, our staple food, Maggi used to top the charts for the
journey food, but thanks to the Ban now, you are bound to miss it.
All this
makes my vacation packing complete and one thing I figure out now is that my
luggage is heavy to the core now. However, one more thing that is certainly true in majority of
cases is that while we love planning and packing, we really hate to pick our
heavy bags in the excitement of the enjoying the place. But while I was searching for a
nice getaway to spend some leisure time, I came across Renault Lodgy, a perfect
fit into my travel plans. 
It has a comfortable 7-8 seat configuration which
perfectly suits our gang of four. Further, since every seat seems to offer
similar comfort and legspace, we won’t have to fight within ourselves for our
preferable seats. An open storage above the glove box and conveniently placed cup
holders and flight trays take care of enabling us to enjoy our journey food. It
also offers me a 12V charging socket in all the rows and am never away from
twitter and FB owing to low battery.
And to top
it up, it has a mediaNAV console with chrome surround which allows me to play
my fav songs from the USB drive all the way. The journey never gets dull, even
when you are waiting in a queue on a Toll plaza. 
So, before
my vacation plan finalizes, my partner in the vacation seems already finalized.
And with so many features to flaunt with, life seems so much Lodgykal with
Renault Lodgy.
I’m
participating in the
 #LiveLodgycal contest with Renault in association with BlogAdda to get a chance to be a part of the #LiveLodgycal Drive in
Goa.
