#tb to golden days when I left for the mountains as soon as I got a chance, I’m not even joking. I was away almost every weekend, exploring one place after another, creating one story after the other :’) .
Talking about creating stories, this picture is from the time I got a job after I graduated as an Engineer. Now, one deserves a graduation trip right? Me, on the other hand, declined the offer and left for Spiti instead, FOR A MONTH 😂 golden days indeed ;) .
I’ve been loving the support and love from you guys so much, it’s unreal :’) I have a surprise in store for when our family becomes 30k big! Who’s excited? 😍
Most of my days are just really good, a handful of which are amazing, and a few are depressingly sad. Like yesterday.
I don’t know what was wrong,
nobody said anything,
nothing went wrong,
but everything was blank.
I couldn’t do anything productive the entire day,
I couldn’t manage to smile the whole day,
And I don’t know what, but nothing felt right.
And I wonder, why!
By the end of the day I realised,
sometimes we just need to let go of these days.
Everything can’t be perfect and not everyday will be the same.
And today seems to be a really good day just in contrast to yesterday.
I had few really bad days during my month long winter trip in Ladakh and this was a super amazing day after those bad ones. A really special day to be precise ❤️

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.

Venus (Centre middle) & Mars (Top middle) hang out in space while a fiery sunset unfolds above the waters of Golden beach in Varkala, Kerala. I didn't spend very much time in Golden beach but it certainly seemed to be a chiller beach (than most others in Varkala) in that there were way fewer people hanging out there at any given point of time, allowing for a much more relaxed beach experience. My other favourite beach was literally on the other side of Varkala, called Black beach (named so because of the colour of the sand there). All in all Varkala was quite a magical (relaxing in other words!) experience - even more so after I'd just completed my very first course in Vipassana meditation. I felt really fantastic after Vipassana and feel like perhaps the time has come for me to attend another. Has any one of you been for Vipassana? What are your thoughts on it?
Ghandruk, the famous Gurung village at 2,010m, is located northwest of the lakeside city of Pokhara. It is accessible in one day, with a four to five hour walk after a short ride from the city. Given that the small village is on the much used trail to the Annapurna Sanctuary or the Annapurna Base Camp, it claims to be the most visited trekking area in Nepal, and is widely known and popular among international visitors.
