Must Visit Places in Andaman

Somebody in a blog said it as- “This morning I woke up with blurry sense of humour. The red and green curtains in my rooms didn’t make any sense. It wasn’t raining outside and the fan wasn’t making sounds. I buried my face back into the pillow, knowing that I am not in Andaman any more, knowing that I am back to my world, back to the daily routine of life. My stay was hardly for a week but I know it will take me more than that to recover from the missing sickness. I miss the ‘small town’ city, I miss the twists and turns of the road, I miss the lined up greenery everywhere, I miss the never ending sea – the dancing of the waves, the chirping of the hiding birds, the nature at its best… I miss Andaman, so much..” – by Shalinijena
