Weekend 101 – Hiking 919 moh

Knowing our strength is not impossible. ~Six word Saturday

Yesterday was a fantastic day, we achieved something great.  It was last sunny day before a wet week so we decided to go on hiking. It was a day tour and we hiked up to 919 m above sea level while covering 17.5 km distance in total.

At home we are working on our “terrace”. Terrace decking is finished and painting is going on but we didn’t want to miss the hiking opportunity.  We didn’t have a lot of rain in last couple of days so the mountain trail was perfect for hiking. The route was well marked (which means one has to keep eye on wooden stumps, trees,  and even the stones in the forest). There were some wet places but managed them in good way. Just that our shoes need good washing 😂😂😂

And at the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy, and your eyes sparkling. ~Shanti





Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.~ Rachel Carsonweekend101_5weekend101_6weekend101_7

Security – Friday fun.

Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude to the whole cosmos — the trees, the clouds, everything.~ Thich Nhat Hanh

    1. Thanks a lot Zakiah ji for being so kind.
      I am not that young anymore 🙂

      Working on our home is summer project each year. Earlier years it was in India where we could hire people but this year we have to do it ourselves 🙂
      I have a joke in my office, for my travel to India, it’s not vacation it’s just change in location 🙂


      1. Such a feeling of gratification when you do the work by yourself. Accomplishment and devotion of your work!
        My husband is a typical Muslim Indian, who never did anything in India as far as being handy at home. He does just about the same here, which is nothing, even though he is an engineer by profession. He is in his eighties and I don’t expect him to do much. Perhaps if I had insisted in the earlier years, he may have yielded. It is too late now.
        What part of the subcontinent are you from Rupali? I am from Hyderabad originally then moved to Madras and Trichy in South India. Husband is from Bangalore.

      2. Thank a lot Zakiah ji for your warm words.
        Societal norms were so different in my parents generation. There are families who still follow the same pattern but we normally share all kinds of chores.
        We are konkani basically, my husband is from Maharashtra. I was born and brought up in MP.


      1. Oh definitely! I know what you mean there. About 12 years ago Daegan and I did my favourite hike in New Hampshire – 13.8 km and 1,165 metres of climb. He was still young (about 9-10) so it was pretty tough for him. But it really boosted his confidence even as it was so hard in the beginning and middle. But then, when we got to the descent the trail follows a stream by a whole bunch of waterfalls. At the bottom he told me that it was so difficult but worth it for all of the beautiful waterfalls at the end.

        Whether hiking or cycling, I think these times when we push ourselves are such good lessons – not just about physical activity but the value of persisting at something difficult even when you’re not sure you can do it.
