Going to the mountains isn’t just about trekking and hiking. So if that’s not your cup of tea, scroll down to find out how I explored Himachal with just a few LONG walks!
A humid October in Mumbai found me spontaneously agreeing to visit my best friend who was studying in Cairo at the time. A group of friends from Mumbai were on-board, and soon enough, I’d begun planning a 9 day vacation to Egypt for January 2017.
The Great Pyramid of Giza. The Nile. A chance to kiss the Sphinx. Bibliotheca Alexandrina. Desert lands opening up to the breathtakingly blue-green Red Sea. Some hilariously charming men. KING TUTAMKHAMUN’S MUMMY. Fateer. Koshary. Calories. Scuba diving. The Temple of Khnum. The Valley of the Kings and Queens. Should I go on…?
PS: Did I mention, a chance to climb INSIDE the Great Pyramid??
I seek new experiences. I crave variety. My bucket list gains new entries even as I tick them off. All this motivated me to stay at Zostel Panchgani for one night, in a 20 x 8 feet converted shipping container. That’s 150 square feet, gross. Was the thought of sharing such tight quarters with another person the offbeat element? No, I live in Mumbai where my room is 170 square feet.
