“Blessed are the curious, for they shall have adventures” - Lovelle Drachman
Indeed it is adventures that our Prime Minister has been on ever since the wanderlust bug bit him. Traveling to nations far and wide, his voyages have taken him to the shores of Great Britain. Modi visited the UK amid a lot of controversies. You might applaud his decision or you might criticize it, but you can’t deny that Modi’s UK visit was indeed a historic moment. The first Indian PM to visit the UK since 2006, he definitely made headlines. So while on his whirlwind tour, here are what he did and the places he visited. His itinerary is sure to inspire you to book your flight tickets today.
Tea with the Queen - Buckingham Palace
The Buckingham Palace is a symbol of the British monarchy and Britain itself. Located in the city of Westminster, it’s a popular tourist destination. The changing of guards at Buckingham Palace is a well-known tourist activity. So when two dignitaries met, with one of them being the Queen of England, it comes as no surprise that Buckingham Palace was the chosen spot for this occasion.
Chequers or also known as Chequers Court is the official residence of the Prime Minister of Britain. Built-in the 12th century, it was enlarged and restored in 1565. It’s this rustic, old-world castle that PM Modi made as his nightspot. After meeting British PM David Cameron, Modi checked into this royal home for the night. Definitely better than any hotel we bet.
A place that sports fanatics will definitely identify is Wembley Stadium. With over 90,000 seats, it is the second-largest stadium in Europe. It has seen many football playoffs in the past, and now it can add a public address to its list. Modi addressed over 60,000 supporters at the Wembley Stadium, talking about increasing and strengthening the ties between India and UK.
PM Modi is a busy man, and the UK is not the only place on his visit list. Wrapping this historic visit, he has set off to Antalya in Turkey to attend the G-20 summit, where he currently is. The G-20 is an international forum of 20 major economies that band together to discuss and review policies and issues related to international financial stability. This all serious and grave discussion is juxtaposed by the beautiful city the summit is being held in, Antalya, Turkey.
Located on the Turkish Riviera, it is Turkey’s biggest international sea resort. Like most places in Turkey, Antalya is steeped in rich culture and heritage. The remnants of the Byzantine and Ottoman empire can be seen and felt in the architecture and the general atmosphere, that emits an old-world charm.
Our PM may be busy discussing important financial matters of the world, but if you happen to find yourself in Antalya you have to visit Hadrian’s Gate, a triumphal arch built in the year 130. This structure just goes to prove how ancient and rich in time the city of Antalya is. If you want to witness nature at its best, then you have to visit the Düden Waterfalls, located 12 km north of Antalya.
One can only hope that PM Modi gets time to witness the beauty that is Antalya. Next time you find yourself in Turkey make your way down to this province. As for our PM, he continues to be an inspiration to travelers all over the world with his continued adventures.
