Some Interesting Thnigs I have Done

Categories Travel
As I grow older nay wiser, I am discovering things about myself that I did not know. I had always pegged myself as an indoor person who did not enjoy sports or outdoor activities. Sports, I still don’t but I have come to realise that I am not averse to outdoor activities especially those involving a rush of adrenaline!I vividly remember my first para sailing experience. It was in mauritius and I could see lovely green water and the vegetation underneath. There were random patterns in the water that looked amazing. The cool wind whipped at my hair and I held out my hands to fly. I closed my eyes and felt like I was a bird 🙂 I recently para sailed again and it was fun…

I am sure we have all trekked at school. I used to hate hate hate trekking and would do whatever it took to avoid this activity. So in october last year, I was so not looking forward to early morning treks on my visits to Rishikesh. The first one turned out to be a low sloping village trail that I turned into a photowalk!

The second trek was a unique one where half the group was blindfolded and the other half was gagged. I climbed a hill with my eyes closed, a feat I am sure I could not have done with open eyes!! Once we descended, we were allowed to look back at the trail and I gasped! If I had to do that with all my senses intact, I would have been panting in the first 5 minutes 🙂 Imagine what a simple shift in focus can do. I wasn’t out of breath once in the entire 40 mins.

Another thing I loved during the Rishikesh visits was rafting. This was my first rafting experience and being a complete water baby, I was very very excited about it! And boy what a good time I had. I sat on the front of the raft and the waves hitting you when the raft flies over a rapid is an unmatched adrenalin rush. This is something I want to do again and again 🙂 Oh and I jumped from the raft into the freezing Ganga both times. That was my holy dip!

And then there was rappelling. I loved the idea of being suspended by a rope and climb down a hill face. Who knew that I’d enjoy it so much? The ride down was swift and ended a little too soon!
