I am still so fresh with the camp in my head that this time last week I didn’t know what I was about to feel. All I really knew was that this was it, the ultimate break I was looking forward to! The tents were even better than I had imagined with sleeping bags laid inside, with room for all my stuff just right. It was indeed a pleasant surprise but I am consoling myself that camping won’t always be this organised or my expectations would rise!
We were just in time for the sunset, and a stroll around the campsite with a cup of tea was what golden moments are made up of. The first round of selfies with Tikona fort in the backdrop and the setting sun made for a wondersight. As we retuned to our campsite, the barbecue was awaiting us and all the more the marinated meat just right. It was a hands on barbeque night, with music adding to the already high spirits and chilled ginger ale to soothe the dry throat. The food got better with every skewer as experience came in and technique got better. Laughter, music and merry along with the occasional barks of our two pet dogs.
After a heavy dinner and a drop in temperature, a Bonfire was lined up. It was the time when I was filling up on all the beautiful vibrations around me. As we retired for the day and entered our tents, initially it was hard to sleep on ground but the rush of adventure made it worthy. As I woke up to a cold beautiful morning, I grabbed on to my phone and a cup of hot tea to all the possible frames to fit in the valley and the sunrise.
As I packed my bag and was about to leave I knew I was carrying back much more than I came in with and I am mighty excited about the next one!
