We all need a little ‘me’ time, you need a little ‘you’ time. No matter how much you love your work or your college, you need to get out of there for at least a day or two. We as a generation are working harder than ever for our own future but in all this, we are losing our present somehow. I mean, when was the last time you took a solo or a trip with 3-4 friends to somewhere nice, somewhere serene and beautiful and calm and exciting and exotic? Now, that’s something you need to think about.
So, if you live in Delhi and are a bit motivated by my little pep and emotional talk and want to go somewhere, anywhere for a short weekend trip then this article would be helping you a bit more. I have gathered 5 places that you can explore on a weekend with your friends or on your own. So, just inhale the beauty of travelling and realize how important it is to take a break.

Visit the oldest National Park in the country that has one of the most impeccable flora and fauna. The national park houses various species of animals, from world renowned Royal Bengal Tiger to Rhesus Macaques to Sloth Bear.
