This holi was one of the ebst ever for me…Why? cuz I spent it on the banks of ganga in rishikesh. It was an eventful weekend as we (around 30 ppl in all) celebrated an extended holi with white water rafting (2 sessions of 28 km and 24 km respectively), body surfing, cliff jumping, mountain climbing, rappling, kayaking, beach volley ball, etc…
The rafting part was especially adrenalin pumping. It was just an amazing experience as we passed over thrilling rapids like “The Wall”, “Daniel’s dip”, “3 Blind Mice”, “Crossfire”, etc…And when are boat filpped over the crossfire and I went under the water for about 5 seconds in the raging rapid, it was one hell of a feeling…..it seemed as if I had spent an eternity coming towards the light….
Most of the time we all were body surfing in the water instead of being on the raft…
I also climbed a mountain and though I didnt feel it at the time, my hands were shaking when I came down finally and I just coudn’t move my forearms, such was the stress that one had to put on the fore arms…
And the standing under the waterfall was so kewl, it felt like someone was massaging my back and head (albeit with hammers instead of hands)…
All in all, it was one great trip….
Neways, enuff abt the trip, I’ve my visa interview tomorrow, so wish me luck….

Interesting blog you have here, I landed here on accident. I was searching for something else and came across your site. I found it pretty interesting and entertaining. I got you book marked.

I will pop back in from time to time to see what you have new here.

My site is a bit different than yours, but just as entertaining and educational, I run a 6 wk body makeover related site pertaining to 6 wk body makeover related articles.

I skim a lot of blogs, and so far yours is in the Top 3 of my list of favorites. I’m going to dive in and try my hand at it, so wish me luck.

It’ll be in a totally different area than yours (mine is about body makeover) I know, it sounds strange, but it’s like anything, once you learn more about it, it’s pretty cool. It’s mostly about body makeover related articles and subjects.

Not what I was searching for, but none the less and interesting blog here. Thanks for putting it up. I’ve enjoyed reading alot of the text here. I got you bookmarked for the future, I’ll be back.

My site is a bit different, some think it’s odd. I guess it’s a matter how you look at it. I have a body makeover related site. Most of the articles are on body makeover.
