Remember how during the PMO elections Modi used to say “Acche din aane wale hain!”? Well, we second him on that because better days *are* coming and they’re called ‘the long weekend!’ When we first found out that Holi falls on a Friday, we saw our window and booked us a weekend getaway with three days full of fun, friends and a dirty little martini. I know, I know. You must be thinking about all the additional “kharcha”. Don’t worry, we have a plan. Wherever you plan to take a trip to, we have a suitcase in a budget for you. Here’s how you can pack your weekend getaway suitcase in under Rs 2,500.
1. Mountains Are Calling!
There are two types of people in this world - the mountain kind and the beach kind. If you’re the former, there must be some righteous sightseeing on your mind. Start with your blue jeans and a sweatshirt to be on the safer (read warmer) side and sneakers that are travel-friendly. Is your backpack ready for more?
Total: 2,463. Look as photogenic as the mountain peaks behind you.
2. Beach Baby!
If you’re the latter, you’re a sunshine child just like me (and Alia Bhatt, yes!) Here’s what all you need to pack in your duffel bag apart from your sunscreen and sunglasses (something every true beach babe will always have in abundance). Take your mini shorts plus funky top ensemble but don’t forget an extra something for the gram.
Total: Rs 2,462. It doesn’t get better than this, guys!
3. Nothing Like A Resort To Unwind!
Tensed about your year-end review? Or just want to get away from the Holi madness? There’s nothing that a nice resort (and spa) can’t fix. You need some de-stressing and rejuvenation. Carry your staples like black jeggings, a failsafe top, and your swimsuit (in case you’re in the mood for a midnight dip in the pool.) What’s more?
