The rainy trip to the sea

Imagine, you have planned for a sunny trip to the sea. You book your hotels, pack your bags and take Dhaka-Chittagong road, all the way to Cox’s Bazar. Suddenly on the way, the weather turns wild. You get informed of the same wilderness in Cox’s Bazar. Probably the ships are also docked at Teknaf, no-one is getting to the Saint Martin’s Island. They are following a number 3 signal. What would you do in this situation? Conclude that this trip won’t be worthy of all the trouble and go back? Or would you take a leap of faith and continue your journey to the sea? If you happen to be brave enough to choose the latter, you have endorsed your name in an intriguing journey ahead.

Like most people, if you had started your journey at night, you are going to arrive at Cox’s Bazaar during early sunrise. The town might still be shaking off the late night drizzle, but you can pass the last drop of rainfall in local roadside restaurants that have made delicious ‘khichuri’, the perfect meal for a rainy day to satisfy your hunger.

As the sky clears out, you would want to visit the sea, as this is what you have been waiting for. Don’t wait, rush to her. If you want to feel the freshness of a rain-shaken morning beside a sea, you must not hesitate. You will be amazed to see how many tourists show up at the beach this early, only to devour the heavenly freshness in the air.

The day might be gloomy, but usually sun does pop up occasionally. Do not miss out the opportunity to take the long-awaited shower in the sea when it happens. You will feel purified by each hit of the waves. The question remains- what if the sun doesn’t come out? The answer is- it might offer a better opportunity. Have you watched it rain over any sea? If you haven’t then you should visit Cox’s Bazar while the weather is wild since this sublime beauty is hidden in plain sight. The very scene of rain falling over the sea will conquer your heart within moments. If you don’t have any cold diseases, leave the umbrellas at hotel. The cold raindrops will feel like ice strike on your skin, but you will get lost in between the wild wind and dangerous beauty of the clouds and the sea. You will bow down in affection towards nature as each raindrop cleanses your heart.  There’s nothing like getting wet in rain beside a sea. One can spend hours by just looking at the raindrops falling on to the unlimited vastness of sea.

Even if you are allergic to rain or cold, you should also visit. Cox’s Bazaar has many hotels with a seaside view, and a good height to watch it all from your balcony. You can have a look at www.jovago.net to book your hotels beforehand as per choice. You can have your coffee while watching the sublime beauty of rain in this coastal zone and wonder how foolish you were to miss this until this very day. Book your sea-view rooms, pack your bags and go out to the sea in this uncertain season. Make moments after all this is the most important thing we can do in this short span of human life.
