The trip was of about 3 days, and we were 4 people who went for the trip. As I love to travel so, I packed some of my requirements like a camera to click pictures or for video recording, small music player to listen to music while getting bored, a video game for my time pass, my laptop, etc. Moreover, this is not at all easy to travel with so much of luggage. However, these were my requirements as I wanted to enjoy my trip to the fullest.

When we landed at our destination because of some issue at the airport or for the flight we didn’t seem able to get our luggage. They said we would get our luggage after 24 hours. However, the trip was of only 3 days. Moreover, all we had with us, were our smartphones and our wallet. However, we didn’t want to waste our time in waiting for our luggage. So we decided to explore the place from the first day itself. While tracking the place, my smartphone got slipped from my hand, and it got damaged. Then my friend said me to use his phone as he has two smartphones. Also, the smartphone was AGM A8.
