And yes, this trip was all about birthday celebrations – besties’ birthday celebrations!
Before I start off, some usual tips before you go to Mumbai during November:
- The weather is pleasant. So, it is a good escape from the Delhi winters
- Food is not a problem if you are from North India
- Intra city travel is pretty simple – I am talking about the cabs not the locals
- Mumbai has friendly people – but being a li’l careful has never harmed anyone
- Rely on Google maps if you are new to the city
I was supposed to reach the Officer’s guest house at the Mazagaon Dockyard. Finding cabs in Mumbai is probably the easiest things. I will come to that later. I had heard a lot about the Mumbai traffic but thankfully I did not face any that day or during my whole stay for that matter.
Mumbai is an old city – with narrow roads and super ancient buildings. That explains why there is a lot of traffic. Anyhow, moving on. I was amazed by Bandra Worli sea link. The skyline of Mumbai with the slight hint of fog looked pretty mesmerising. And yes, that was the moment when I realised that I am going to like Mumbai or at least be surprised by it unlike the metropolitan cities of South India.

|Oh yes, I can not forget to pose, can I? Thankfully no back pose this time!|
|Looking at this place sends a chill down my spine. Every single time.|
|Despite being an unusually crowded place, this place has still got its charm.|
And my Mumbai trip finally concluded. Yes, that was not exactly the kind of trip I wanted to have and thus the name of the post.
Mumbai has been good to me. Till the next time we meet!
I really look forward to visit Mumbai again – for a longer duration to explore this city towards which I am indifferent. Mumbai is certainly fascinating.
This year has been an year of new and old cities and a lot of travelling. I am ending this year with a post about Mumbai but surely a lot has to come in the coming year and beyond 🙂
