Skiing in Gulmarg
winters in Gulmarg,Kashmir,India
first and foremost we are pitching our friend Umang for 2018 winter Olympics as an Indian entry..provided he qualifies for the timing which he should…
i came back and ended up following Sochi Winter Olympics till its very end….sat with folks and ended up telling them about ploughing, parallel skiing and so on….basically showed off my new skills …honestly it was the first time I found winter olympics interesting….
very happy to have acquired this skill….it was a double joy on a personal level…learning a new skill along with travel at the beginning of the year …though by the end of 2nd day I did n’t think it was travel trip…in my head I was cursing myself…” salaa ek tou skiing bhee nahee hou rahee upar sey mehnat.yeh koi holidays thodee hai ”
I could have prepared better ,which i will next time around ..in terms of gear and clothes I was carrying …Nuru Light worked wonders !!! definitely we could have a helmet on rent for next year that can allow us to record as we ski..i was suggesting the same to Abhishek during our bike trip…in my journal I have listed a category of items missing that also includes incense sticks !!
as they say the best part of a trip is coming back home…similarly the best part for me after skiing everyday was returning back to hotel..everyone was so relaxed ..and we did so much talk without giving time a consideration discussing music, movies, falls, slope and mountain stories…speaking of mountain stories ,i realised most of my last few long trips have been to the lofty slopes…wondering the next should be a beach…still looking forward to the trek now in summers…
