On My Anniversary!!!


Whoa ho ho ho!!! I just can’t believe it’s been a year now. Looks like it’s just been few days. A year ago, on the same day and the same place I entered into a new world, met new people, found new family.  Yessss!!! My blog just completed a year. What were you thinking?? 😉

This one year has been really exciting with 106 posts, 4 pages, 158 followers, 9 awards and unlimited appreciation. And what a coincidence!! Just before I completed a year I received “Bog of the year” award :). With all the love that I received from my fellow bloggers and readers I could reach this point and will continue this beautiful journey.

Anniversary

With Love,

What Life Says

While I was falling down


God created human beings all with different behaviour, taste, passion and interests. Some like to live peacefully, some wants to do just nothing while some are always hyper and active. We all face troubles or obstacles in our way. That’s our destiny. But when life is smooth and someone is deliberately inviting troubles is seems to be insane. And these days I’m surely being the one. First I jumped off the bridge 215 m high and now from 10000 ft. with almost 250 Km/Hr speed. Who would want to put their lives in trouble and also pay handsome amount for it? Well there are such weird people and now I’m in their club ;).

It’s my second trip to South Africa and now that I’ve seen all major tourist places here my focus is on doing some adventurous stuffs this time. And guess what! I’ve already done one and I’m all the more happy that I could do it in this month. It’s a birthday gift to myself (though in advance). After doing bungy from Bloukrans Bridge I have gained courage to do more. And then I decided to go fo Sky Diving. I was so nervous when I did bungy but this time I was very much relaxed as it was tandem dive. There was a feeling of security as the person diving with you is a professional diver and would take care of everything. But yes, anyone who’s gonna do something like this for the first time might not feel the same.

We were a group of 15 with girls in minority (as usual). Like last time I was wearing my Bugy t-shirt not to show off but to give myself a motivation. My fellow divers were so sure about me after knowing that I’ve done bungy before. So it was kinda cool :).

I was excited about dive but waking up so early (4.30 AM) was equally difficult for me. That was the only part I hated of all. We reached the Witbank Sky Diving Club by 8 AM. I had no issues with going in first few slots but then I wanted to do it with my friends and since one of them opted to go last we had to wait. And later we regratted our decision as we really had to wait for long and by then our excitement dropped down.

So finally after waiting for couple of hours it was our turn. We could see the coordinators names on the board along with ours. The co-ordinator came and handed over the suit to us and started explaining the rules. We were all geared up. The cameraman was shooting every bit.

We reached the runway where a plane was all set to take us UP.

We sat in front of the co-ordinator assigned to each one of us and the plane took off. I was already feeling happy that now I was going to accomplish one of my bucket list item. I wasn’t at all scared as I was while bungy. Looking outside the window I was enjoying the view. My co-ordinator was showing me the reading. On 10000 ft. we were supposed to jump and at 5000 ft the parachute will be opened. We were not at 10000 ft and all set to experience the thrill of being on top of the world from where everything just look so tiny.

Two of my friends jumped before me and now it was my turn. I stepped out of the plane and on count of 1,2, 3 was pushed by my co-ordinator. The cameraman was already hanging outside the plane to take our stills and video.

35 seconds of free fall, I was screaming with joy. We covered 5000 ft distance in mere 35 sec with around 250 KM/HR speed. It was breathtaking.

At the hight of 5000 ft the co-ordinator opened the parachute and we relaxed. Now it was time to just enjoy the view up and down.

The earth was looking just as it looks in google earth :).

It was quite chilling at this hight. The co-ordinator showed me some tricks with the parachute and we started spinning around. That was so fun. I felt as if I got wings and now I can fly anywhere. I wish I could just keep flying but as they say “all good has to end” this too was supposed to come to an end. we started our landing process. Observing the wind direction we started coming down and landed safely.

10000 ft, 35 sec free fall, 250 KM/HR speed and a priceless experience. You could see that on my face and in my wide smile after the successful landing :). Yippppeeeeeee! I did it :).

Weekly Photo Challenge – Summer


This week’s theme looks much interesting as it’s summer in India. So there’s a room for lot many ideas and pictures for this week’s theme. But due to some personal commitments I am quite late for posting it.

For Indians, summer is incomplete without delicious and mouth-watering Mangoes. So what else could have been better to interpret summer being an Indian? 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge – Hands


A human hand is capable of doing so many things. It can feed someone hungry, it can offer helping hand to someone needy, it can applaud at someone’s achievement, it can wipe off someone’s tears and it can also go creative.

That’s one my friends trying his HANDS on graffiti 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge – Blue


Whenever we think of blue what comes in our mind is the sky and water(even though we know water is colorless). Though this picture wasn’t clicked by me but I’m there in it trying to conquer my fear and see little sharks. Nothing can get more blue than this.

Where: Ushaka Marine, Durban, South Africa.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Unfocused


This one was mere an experiment but sometimes such pictures come for rescue when such different topics are given 🙂

 

Sip of coffee and ….


Lately my intake of caffeine has increased and with that my visits to different cafĂ©s. For me or for that matter for anybody else, cafĂ©s are not only the place to have different kinds of coffees and snacks but it’s more than that. I like spending time with my friends (though I won’t mind dropping there alone) at coffee shops enjoying my favourite cappuccino and the lovely surrounding for hours together. The comfortness in ambience is perfect for all those gossips and news.

Look and feel of these cafĂ©s is as refreshing as the coffees and teas they serve, doesn’t matter which season it is. It always looks welcoming and the very aroma of coffee awakens your nervous system.

For me the experience at cafĂ©s is always more than just a sip of coffee…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Together


Together we eat, together we shop, together we smile, together we have fun.

That’s our friendship, together we cherish :).
