Who doesn’t want a little bit of adventure in life? After all, life is all about taking a few risks. I had a long winter holiday of 7 days lined up, and I was so looking forward to plan it effectively. My mind came up with an idea to explore Tirupati this time. I had a keen interest in Tirupati and its temples and natural resources. So this was the best opportunity for me to start up the trip and explore Tirupati. I packed my bags and started for the journey. I decided to take the Sapthagiri Express for my trip. The total distance from Chennai to Tirupati is about 150 kilometers. My travel experience from Chennai Central (Mas) to Tirupati (Tpty) by Sapthagiri Express train was truly a great experience in itself. As I was on a budget travel, I was making sure of the cost of each and every thing. The winters were approaching, and I decided to travel in the non-air conditioned normal class.
The train operates every day. The origin station is from Chennai Central and ends at the Tirupati station. I took the train from Chennai Central (MAS), which departed at 6:25 p.m. The train crossed through Trivellore, Arakkonam, Tiruttani and covered places like Ekambarakuppam, Puttur and Renigunta Junction. Finally, I reached at Tirupati station at 9:40 in the evening. The train halted for 1-2 minutes in each station mentioned above, and probably for 10 minutes at the Renigunta Junction. My travel experience from Chennai Central (Mas) to Tirupati (Tpty) by Sapthagiri Express train was inevitable. The journey was comfortable and as I was my lone companion, I was making sure of my security. I had got the upper berth for seat. The train was almost occupied and a large number of people traveled. The train also served good food through the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation. I ordered my dinner through IRCTC, which was served hot. I enjoyed my supper and waited eagerly for the train to arrive at my destination. It was not my first journey in train, but definitely one to be remembered for a long time.
