A honeymoon couple from Vadodara stuck up at Havelock beach resort at Andaman had a horrible experience as they thought they will never return back home. The couple after spending their worst time ever returned back home and will reach Baroda on Saturday evening.
With glow on their faces the young couple Krutarth Patel and his wife Nidhi Patel went for their honeymoon to lovely destination at Port Blair. The couple set out for the lovely location on 1st December from Vadodara to Port Blair via Mumbai to spend quality time as they are starting a new life together. But little they know that the experience was horrible for them and the heavy rain and high tides inside the sea hold them back at their resort.
“We set for our honeymoon on 1st and reached Port Blair on 2nd December morning and enjoyed the time and travel around places at Port Blair for two days. On 4th we set out for the Havelock beach resort and reached there in a ship named Ocean Green. The weather was good there and we enjoyed the day and visit the beach and travel places nearby. However from 5th morning light rain started at Havelock but since it was not that heavy we went out and enjoy. However in the night the rain gets heavy and the waves are high and it continued till 6th morning and since then the rains and waves continued to haunt us,” said Krutarth after reached Delhi with his wife on Saturday.
Krutarth said they spent the days in waiting for the help to come and the nights in fear as the rains are heavy and the sounds of waves and heavy rains are listened inside their hotel rooms. The hotels are also charging heavy from them they face the food shortage also. The Navy ships came to their rescue also left to Port Blair as they are unable to drop their anchors due to heavy tides in the sea.
“We are not allowed to visit the beach and since we don’t have any dry clothes as all of them are wet. Secondly the hotels are charging hefty for a day and the shortage of food was also there. However we are spending the fearful nights we hope to catch our return flight on 8th December but the weather was not good and we have to miss the flight. On 9th the rain stopped and we rushed to the shipyard to inquire about the ship and fortunately there was an announcement that Navy ships are in its way and we stand in line,” said Krutarth.
Their wait for heading to Port Blair finally over when the Ships arrived and they were all boarded inside. But for Krutarth the journey from Havelock beach to Port Blair was horrible experience for them which he never forget in his life. “When we headed for Port Blair the waves are so high and the ship is wildly waving turned heart in our mouth. We are so frightened that at one time we thought that we cannot make it and this is our end. My wife vomits all the way till we reach Port Blair and catch our flight back home,” said Krutarth.
On 10th December Krutarth and his wife Nidhi Patel board the flight from Port Blair to Delhi way back home. He now wants to eat home made food and rest. “We took the flight from Port Blair and after a halt at Kolkata we reached Delhi in the evening. From here I am eager to reach my home at Vadodara and first thing I do is having Kadhi Khichdi and rest peacefully. My wife is not so well so we both trying to get back home as early as possible,” said Krutarth from Delhi Airport.
Krutarth said we took money including the change to avoid the problem of cash crunch due to demonetisation but the bad weather spoilt their honeymoon. After spending horrible days and nights there they thanked God for helping them to reach back home. He said the experience was unforgettable, adventurous but more horrible. Krutarth also thanked their travel agent Harsh Rathod from Arrow travels for helping them in need at Port Blair and also arranged new flight from their to return back home.
