Travel gives me the opportunity to walk through the sectors of cities where one can clearly see the passage of time. So we the TPS (Trongsa Poenlop Scholar) family stepped out a memorable trip to Punakha. It was a wonderful trip that I ever had in my life. Indeed it was a trip organized by the Gyelpoi Zimpoen office, Thimphu.

We took off our journey at 3:30 pm from Thimphu on the 27th of December with Dasho Zimpoen and an officer from the zimpoen office. As we are of huge number we occupied two buses of Etho Meto Tours and Treks Company. When I looked at my friends, all seems so excited and everyone flashes a set of perfect teeth with the atmosphere of laugher and gesture. On the way we had a photo session at Dochola around half an hour. All were so delighted to see the bountiful forest views and beautiful snow capped mountain views from that peak. Though the wind was chilly and the weather was cold, still we felt warm as our hearts are warmed with the feeling of joyous and excitement. So the time passes in the flick of second, as we know that the time is too short for those who enjoy and too long for those who waits.

We spent the wonderful night of 27th December at De-Sung Hostel, Wangdue Phodrang. We made our stay there fruitful and incredible one with an interesting program of camp fire. We had group dances, solo songs and finally with Antakshri(The game of the ending letter). We really had fun and had great time there.

On 28th December, we headed towards Punakha. We are escorted by one of the lopen to tour around entire dzong. That lopen was there not only to escort us but to guide us with the explanation about Punakha dzong. There we also had a photo session to capture the beautiful views of the dzong from every direction as we like. After that we proceeded to our picnic spot at Zomling Thang, Punakha. So we were there at the spot, ladies in their own world basking in the sun, chit chating and teasing each other as usual. While the gents were enjoying futsal, rushing for the ball and sweating for pleasure. So the time for lunch appeared and lunch also arrived at zomling Thang from Kinga hotel of Punakha. Then we had lunch and to engrave the long lasting memory, we took a shot snap there.

Finally, we were on our way back to Thimphu. So contented and happily back to our destiny by 28th evening. That was an incredible and memorable trip so far in my life. I wish such moment could be frozen to last forever.
