“Pop up” he screamed. I was frozen in place. The 12 year old next to me chuckled and took off. Day one ended, and I was still grappling with the board. The next day, I was determined, and managed to balance for a few seconds. It got better.

Peace in Wilderness
Thursday, 21st September, 2018
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

I was adjusting the tripod, when Neeti screamed. Rohan clamped his hand over her mouth.

And me, I just stood there, mesmerized. The 1500 mm HD forgotten for a moment.

The wilderness spread out like a never ending expanse all around us. With zebras, giraffes, lions moving all around us in the grasses in perfect harmony. The lake calm with soft ripples in orange hues, reflected off the setting sun.

Deep in untouched territory, just us four friends and the Masai guide. No other human, or tent in sight. Nature at its best.

Strangely peaceful. Except for Varun’s incessant chatter.

Thank you Vibrant For creating this wonderful page of my travel diary.

And shut the hell up, Varun!

Chania, Greece.

Art and music are my two true passions. Luckily, my group of friends share the same interests.

All of us retirees packed off for a peaceful holiday to Greece. And discovered the most priceless city of Chania, an artistic marvel huddled on the colourful yet serene Venetian harbor. A blue waterfront with artistic installations.

Like classical music on a bed of rock n roll. Wonderfully juxtaposed.

Thank you Vibrant, for this beautiful painting in such an urban setting!

Torc Waterfalls, Ireland

Rhea and I knew exactly what we wanted.

Objective 1: Escape Summer
Objective 2: Embrace the nature.

But how and where?

Plan: Fly to Ireland. Breathe in the fresh seaside air. Relax. Romance. Some leisurely walks in the hills.

Story: And we ended up climbing quaint stone steps to the most enchanted waterfalls in the world, surrounded by moss covered trees. Like a hidden gem. Tranquility all around, only the pure gushing water at play.

Thank you Vibrant This was just what we needed.

Conclusion: Every once a year, travel to just calm your senses!

Snowy freedom
Rovaneimi, Finland

Here’s how a sub-zero experience liberated me, calming the nerves, healing the soul…

The girls had come all covered up in muffs, furs and mittens.

It was -14*C. They whined as they took off all the layers and dipped in the icy cold water. Shivering, frozen to the bones.

And then it hit us. The warmth.

Surrounded by ice, on wooden benches with hot steam hitting us. In the lap of luxury at the Arctic Sauna. The lake outside was frozen hard.Inside, we perspired!

Thank you Vibrant, for this liberating experience.

Scaling the snows and conquering the cold.

Device Detox Time
Wednesday, 7th March 2018
Wanaka, New Zealand

“You need to do device detox,” my wife said. I nodded as I hardly looked up from the email I was reading. I should have.

Because what she did, thereafter, was pure magic.

We rediscovered family time, at the picturesque Lake Wanaka. Hiking, fishing, kayaking in the middle of the lake, with alpine mountains and ethereal natural beauty all around us. We spoke of life, books, dreams and aspirations. We laughed at forgotten jokes.

Our own private holiday, at the edge-water villa. And the devices? There was no network!!!

Thank you Vibrant for a most peaceful holiday.

Well, except for the occasional whines of two wi-fi-deprived teens.

Cape Town, South Africa.

Kunal went for the V-Rod Muscle. I love the classic Street 750. Shweta opted for the 1200CX Roadster. Show off!

Helmets and leather jackets on, backpacks strapped on, all geared up, we just hit it on. Rode our bikes along the part scenic, part rugged oceanic splendor of Cape Town. Cruised along the highways and the mountainside, my mobile cam recording our movements like a lethal jungle cat.

Lunch at the fabulous vineyards of Stellenbosch. We officially confess we drunk and rode that day!

It has to be an unforgettable night. Something different. Stylish.

Like a wild date, my new hubby said. We just GTG.

I agreed. We were all up for the Sparty…. A dip in a choice of pools with thermally heated water. Sensuous and luxurious too! Good for the soul, great for your body.

Sexy swimsuits on, we jumped right in. Unabridged.

Lights flickering, music throbbing, spirits flowing, and an amazing pyrotechnic display. I betcha never seen it like this.

Malini always has the best ideas. And Rohit, he knows the best places for dance and drinks.

And their deadly combination landed us on the exclusive sailboat Oceanis loaded with a wonderful sundeck, luxurious cabins, water heaters, auto pilot and a fully equipped kitchen! A beauty floating on crystal-clear waters.

We spent a whole day amongst the breathtaking views and springy climate, satisfying our gastronomic desires with stewed mussels and fresh oysters. Short trips at quaint islands, with their antiques shops.

Dost, mazaa aa gaya!

And yes, Neeraj did the music.

Alena and DG are starstruck.

Dragged us all the way to Ibiza… that place where Ranbir-Katrina holidayed.

Good, I would say, except for the fact that it was wonderful! Especially when visiting it on a Hot Rod - the smallest street-legal car in the world. Powerful and stylish!

A most thrilling way to explore the city of “love and friendship,” with its cafes, panoramic views and a rocking nightlife.

Thanks Vibrant for this trendy adventure.

Prague, Czech Republic.

Its not tough to keep parents entertained on a holiday. But when we want to do things together as a family, well, that’s another story.

This wonderful idea was a combination of Fun+Style, Teens+Parents, Sightseeing + Excitement.

OMG! An electric scrooser ride across the elegant city of Prague!!!

It was fun getting them to do “our” kind of stuff – riding along paved streets of cool Baroque buildings and stopping at quaint cafes for Czech buchta with plum jam, and smoked Irish coffee with a dash of chocolate liqueur. Heaven!

Thank you Vibrant, I think parents can be fun too!

The way to a woman’s heart
Thursday, 18th Jan 2018.
Krabi, Thailand.

I told him I wanted to make something special. For my girl.

Three hours full of the real flavours and aromas.

My instructor delved into the details with ease. Sourcing the local ingredients from the tlad phak. The exotic kaffir lime, lemongrass and fresh catch from the seas. Cutting, chopping, stir-frying. Plating Pla Chon Pao* on woven coconut leaves. My first lesson in authentic Thai cooking.

She shrieked with delight and put her arms around me. My girl loves Thai gourmet. To her from me, her husband of 25 years. Chef in training.

Thank you Vibrant for this wonderful idea. Romance is back!

Living with Enid Blyton
Wednesday, 7th June, 2018
Outskirts of Zurich

I thought I would read about it only in Enid Blyton books. But wanted to live it. The kids heard about it and were really excited.

So “Stay in the Hay” it was! We made friends with Barny the farm hand, and the two sheep sucklings Luisa and Suzy. We felt like the Famous Five rolling in the meadows, swimming in the lake, riding little ponies and relaxing in the hammocks. Almost felt like a nice pirate adventure was just around the corner!

Thank you Vibrant for giving back part of my childhood. Ginger ale and fresh strawberries, anyone?

Angkor Vat, Cambodia.

When Gupta called, I complained about all the work piled up. This was not exactly time for a holiday. But I went along.

And, I rediscovered myself. It was a spiritual awakening in the real sense. Amongst those 12th century temples, the spectacular amalgamation of Hinduism and Buddhism, the chanting that reverberates in you - my mind, body and soul met calm and quiet.

They say you need a calling. My calling was here.

Thank you Vibrant for a place where I could find the real me.

SING… SING… SING…

No, I don’t mean to repeat myself. Its just the way the echo-echo-echo reverberated our voices and songs in the icy tunnel. Our ssshh… shhh… shhhivering voices made lovely haunting melodies.

They even hold we-we-weddings in the chapel inside! Well, wedding vows th-th-thrice said! That would be a s-s-s-strong bond indeed!

Good grades in History
Thusrsday, 22nd March, 2018
Berlin, Germany.

My 11-yr old daughter is fascinated with stories of war, politics, kings, regimes. The whole game of thrones!

What better introduction to the past could we get than from the historian himself. Germany – the real story. The rise and fall of the Nazi rule. The remnants of the bloodiest war in the world. The partition of East and West Berlin.

It is one thing to watch it all on Discovery, and a totally different feel to experience it. Kiara was in awe as she went trigger happy, making notes all along.

Thank you Vibrant, for this wonderful “live in the past” tour.

And an A+ in History as well!

One day in the life of a soldier
Tuesday, 27th June, 2017.
Somewhere on the outskirts of Moscow, Russia.

We were ready in military outfits, combat boots, and a tank helmet. Strict instructions were given.

Dos and Don’ts. Serious, yet thrilling. We could hear our hearts throbbing with excitement. We were booked for a day’s activities at a former Soviet Military Camp. The real thing. With real tanks, guns, bombs. In fact, our instructor was a retired military man too. We climbed on to the tank and felt the earth rumble beneath. Sheer power!

We lived it all: the tank jumping over uneven, off-road terrain, and feeling the blast from the shot of its 100 mm canon, and a shot at rifle ambush in the woods.

Thank you Vibrant, no other high compares to this.

This experience of war, far better than PS4’s God of War!.

The thrill of canine rides
March 3rd to 6th, 2018
4 day Husky Safari, Finland

Be warned. Fasten your seatbelts. Yet, you can never be prepared enough for what’s to follow.

This I discovered as soon as I entered the camp. They greeted me with snarls and barks.

A battalion of canines, and a single sled. All for me! I got an instant adrenaline rush, looking forward to this unique winter sport. I set off in the white landscape, with only the excitable padding of paws and the continuous pounding of my heart for company. Far, but close enough, the wolves watched me speed away.

I was excited like hell. I mean, wow! This is cool, man!

4 nights, as many campfires and 100 kms later, I had already made up my mind for another trip. The huskies barked in agreement.

Thank you Vibrant for a high never imagined.

On the day of my birthday, I jumped off the helicopter. Scared at first, but excited, then exhilarated and finally, fearless. I flew in the sky. Skydiving does that to you.

A memory etched in my mind forever.

An unforgettable birthday. Celebrated 10,000 ft above the ground

They always tell you, Darrkeaage jeet hai!

But that “aage” was more than 2.5 kms far, not at all what I had imagined. With wobbly knees, I climbed up to the highest point of Dubai Amwaj Towers.

And then, it was me, zipping past the tallest towers of the urban city sprawled below.

An adrenaline rush like no other.
