WPC: Adventure

Adventure: This week’s photography challenge theme and here are my entries.

In Nevis Range, Fort William, I decided that I would go to the top on that cable car, alone. When it started and not even 1/4 of the distance covered, there was a blizzard and the cable car started to shake very badly. I decided to forgo my courage and called up all the Gods (whose names I could remember) to come and help me out of this. While coming back down I made sure I had some company. Some adventure that was and my first encounter with a blizzard.

Climbing that hill in Chitradurga, without any support except for those small carvings in the stone made for placing the legs – Nothing short of an adventure and no, I did not try it. Two of my friends did and in this picture they are almost at the top.

and finally, the one and only trekking I ever did in my life in Wayanad, and I am not sure if I want to do a repeat performance, because it was not only an very unique adventure for me, it was also an unforgettable one for the guide who came with us, because I almost pulled him down with me in the steep climb down, when all he was trying to do was help me get down. And that happened not once but thrice. adv3

    Looks frightening and exciting at the same time! I never had enough courage to try thrilling adventures but definitely it’s time to start now.
