HOW I SPENT MY HOLIDAYS

By Shahana Taj , VIII , B

Last winter, with my family I had gone to Shimla for holidays. That was a very memorable moment for me. It was a three day vacation in Shimla.

With my parents, my brother and one of my cousin had gone. It was winter of December and we went northwards to north it became cold.

It was very enjoyable in the toy train and was very exciting. The roads were wide and the train was slow. The hills were beautiful. We were going up in the Himalayas. Below it was lush green, with some terrace cultivation and some forests , and above the lofty Himalayas, with snow peaks.

It took us almost 12 hours to reach Shimla from New Delhi. I was tired and took a nap. Suddenly my cousin, Neha woke me up. It was evening, she insisted me to see outside. Wow ! it was very beautiful. It was very bright. All the bulbs were on. It seemed to me like heaven. I felt good and all my tiredness was gone.

At 8 0’ clock in the evening , we reached Shimla. It was very cold. My father had booked a hotel. We took our dinner and slept. It was very cold. My mother had put three blankets and I slept quite well due to the tiredness.

By 7 a. m. we woke up. It was very cold so the water pipes were jammed, so we had to finish our work with little water. The morning sun was soothing , and the buttered Aloo Parathas for breakfast was delicious. We had hired a taxi to go to Kufri. Last night there was snow fall and Kufri was very beautiful to see.

It took us one hour to reach Kufri. Suddenly I felt cold in my face and saw ice flakes for the very first time and had only seen on television and felt ecstatic. We hired gum boots to walk in the snow. As we got up the snow increased. It was thrilling and had never seen so much of snow except in a refrigerator! All the surroundings were covered with blanket. We played there, throwing snow balls to each other. Neher and I tried to meet snow man but in vain.

After one hour enjoying the scenic beauty of Kufri we returned back to our hotel. We stayed in Shimla two more days. We enjoyed a lot there. We also shopped.

But the moments spent at Kufri were the most memorable, which I won’t forget for years.
