They told me it was a night trek to Sinhagad. I had childhood memories of Sinhagad being a really easy trek and for me a trek at night was a first. So I said yes lets go, how difficult can it be? So the seven of us met at nanded city (a colleague lives there) and we then proceeded from there to the base. All pumped up by how beautiful the moon looked and how pretty the starlit sky would look from the top, we started our ascent at 12:30 am.We imagined it would be dark but the moonlight was with us at every step. We imagined it would be really cold but only after a few minutes we were getting rid of our sweaters. In childhood, I believe, I must have had loads of stamina because, this time, in less than 30 minutes or so we had made our first stop trying to cool off and get our heart beat back to normal. Here's us at our first stop trying to capture a people snap in moonlight. We finally reached the top at 2:30 and we all sat down getting hold of our breath and the visuals that awaited u…
The four and a half years starting here is now going to move on to the next phase in the next twelve days. The time flew really fast and I'm hoping the next phase too takes very less time to settle down.
All the emotions (possible) have started pouring in. Preparations are taking its toll both on energy and the pocket.

It took us 3 years to get to the second one, but it was worth the wait.
On a side note, we also expanded the group with two tiny-tots!
We had planned to meet at our place, on a 'holi'day. Good food and conversations led to the plan and the dates were finalised! Of course our star planner DJ detailed, booked and executed the plan. We were going to Diveagar!
This time Shri dropped out and Dhaval-Renu decided to become NRIs. But we welcomed two new members Vishwas and Suchitra (who we kept meeting at dinner/lunch plans but they could not make it to the last trip). So we were 8 adults and 1 tiny-tot (Shanaya) who made the trip to Diveagar on the 25th of March, to enjoy the cool summer breeze and the salty ocean.
Since the trip dates were so close to Supriya's birthday, we decided to celebrate it with a cake. Plans and re-plans later, we decided to buy a full cream cake, since we …
