After a long tiring adventurous day, we spent the entire evening with Dadaji who shared some amazing real life stories from his navy days and his stay in Delhi. His experience of life is unmatched and his stories were equally interesting. Sumit left no stones unturned to make this trip amazingly memorable for us. He provided traditional Himachali food with lots of love that even his simple soup tasted amazing. One day to the New year was spent under the stars, in Raadballi gardens with bonfire and delicious barbecued food.
Our final day again began with a long walk uphill from the retreat home. We walked about 3-4 Kms to visit the rising sun and trust me one should never miss the sunrise while travelling to the hills or the mountains. The view is always magnificent and the calmness it brings to your soul is incredible.We may not have done so many adventurous activities here but this trip to Himachal was an incredible experience which made us fall in love with nature again and embrace the solitude we felt enclosed in this peaceful heaven on earth.
Post our return to the retreat home, we got the opportunity to enjoy the winter sun and have our breakfast beneath it, which we miss out while working at the offices. It brought back the childhood memories, when my mother made us sit in the sun during our winter holidays.
