Hello to the beautiful world I’ve been missing from days,
I know I haven’t written in long but my summer vacation in Kashmir has not been all peace and calm. It wasn’t chaotic either, but in Kashmir, I have no proper schedule or routine so it’s always up and down with me getting no time to write.
Anyways, here I am, and I want to tell everyone about my trip to the mountains. Although I uploaded a few pics on Instagram(username:me_a_poet) weeks ago, I just didn’t have time to write about it.
We-me, my father, sister and brother joined our uncle’s and aunt’s families for a trip to Sonmarg- a mountain area away from Srinagar. Although I don’t really enjoy family road trips, but this trip was special because of the beautiful scenery all along the way.
We had lunch on a hill top and I was able to get some pretty good pictures there. The weather was nice, the sun kept coming and going but it was great, feeling that wind hit your face.
After we had lunch, we drove down the hill and went biking. It was the four wheeler bike and I got on it, and I drove like a turtle! But, I didn’t get hurt which is a plus point. Later, my cousins and my siblings went horse riding. I didn’t go because one look at those horses and I knew they were weak. I didn’t want to burden them with my weight. I became the heroine for those black beauties, but the rest of my family wasn’t, so maybe it wasn’t completely a win win situation. My dad rode a horse- he rid well but when it was time to get off, he took his sweet time getting off the saddle. But, some times too much time taken at a task can end in a mess so my dad fell. It wasn’t a really bad fall, he just didn’t know how to get off .
Even though I didn’t go horse riding or anything, I was exhausted- I think it was because of sitting in the car for too long, but it was fun! Visiting those mountains again, after such a long time; it was good.
