I just put forward this random idea of visiting some green patch in Mumbai itself. Frankly speaking, I wasn't sure if these lazy bunch of people would actually wake up this early on a Sunday. (We all would have hardly slept for 3 hours the previous night.)
The first thing that made me happy was we all made it on time with smiling faces. Now we had to decide on what we wanted to do next. We all agreed to cycle. (I was thinking to myself its been over a decade since I cycled, I should find a kids cycle where my feet touch the ground and I don't end up falling.)
Often I learn simply by observing others. Elle was such a motivation coz she didn't know to cycle at all and she was game for it. And our journey began, we really didn't know how long we had to cycle to reach the caves we intended to see, so many up hills , which was sooooo difficult and tiring. But each of us kept moving ahead (of course we took a lot of breaks to catch our breath.) Tefu was so inspiring coz he took double seat for quite a bit (wonder how he has so much stamina.) Other by-passers found that so romantic and were all aww.
But finally, we made it! Sweaty and dirty but full of enthusiasm. We were so proud of ourselves that we didn't get demotivated and give up half way, although we were thinking we had to cycle all the way back. Thankfully the return was not as tiring. And the entire journey was worth it! We came back with lot of memories and body pain.
