Love affair with horse riding
One time when I got an aisle seat on the flight from Kathmandu to Kolkata, I fell all over the window seat guy next to me and clicked pics like there was no tomorrow. After a while, irritated, he turned to me and asked if it was my first flight, in the hope of putting me off. I giggled and continued.

Nuts, a cube of cheese, one small bar of dairy milk and toffees! It felt more like we were going to have a few ingredients of a full lunch.The look on my teammates’ faces was apocalyptic; as if Ajeeth just casually announced that, “henceforth, everybody on the team should live a life of celibacy.”
Standing in the patio under the starry night sky with peace and quiet for company and Black Necked Cranes calling occasionally in the distance for music, the night spent at Phobjikha was best time I spent in Bhutan. It was a transcendental experience.

And then you can ride a boat till paradise, I mean, beach. Smell of the sea, sound of the water, Seagulls soaring high up against the sun studded sky, water sparkling like diamonds, beautiful view of the horizon. Indeeed it feels like paradise.
