The Boomerang - A walk to remember - Blue Mountains

 



A mountain trip such as this is worth it even when the rain gods shower their unconditional love upon you, right when you are out in the open and running for cover isn’t a cool option in the woods, don't you think?
Let’s ride into the memory lane of one of the best mountain trips I have had till date – The Katoomba - Blue Mountains. I feel incredibly fortunate to have realized this dream, the dream of travelling and my love for sharing it is as contagious. So, join me folkies, I am confident that you will enjoy this journey. Before we go on, I would like you to meet Kat and Oomba who made my trip particularly interesting with their sublime humor.

We were here -
We started walking from the Katoomba station to the echo point to experience the scenic extravaganza



A random picture clicked on our way to the Blue Mountains


 

The long roads are a pleasurable sight and sight only, the walk was quite a trek in itself
 

A pleasant sight of sweet sunflowers - I shot the freshest one from the bunch. They have their monsoon blues too right?
 



Another long road, with lush green trees hugging from both sides






We stopped by at the Maple Grove Park panting and growling like blood-thirsty hounds.

When we neared the entrance, almost completely exhausted, this mystery well kept us on our heels

Are you guys wondering what we were planning on doing from here? Here is what - an exciting round-walk from the Prince Henry Cliff walkway to the amazing scenic skyway, cableway and railway and to reach the perfect location from where we can get the best view of the Blue mountains. Follow me...
 
 
 

I am trying to keep the posts as simple and short as possible here and that is why I am doing a series of posts to cover just the Blue Mountains. Believe me, it was worth it and for those who are planning to go here, it will definitely help you find your way back (just in case, you know?!) :)

Memories of...#26DaysOfSummer #A-ZChallenge

I don't know if this one counts for a poem. My rhyming sense failed miserably as emotion took over. A stinging emotion called nostalgia. A nostalgia which is synonymous to summer itself and a lot of other sweet things.

Here goes:





What is your favorite mango memory? share it with me here, won't you? :)

Make Up and Me (Not Me)

They say people who don't know to dance have two left feet. Although, I might have two left feet myself, what is more interesting is I might actually have two left hands.

Okay, I understand that's funny but here is why:

If you are a girl or a boy or a boy who looks like a girl, you would probably know that it is a thing now to have a makeup blog or vlog or youtube channel in your name. I bumped into this world of cosmetics, beauty blogs and tutorials only a few months ago. For those who don't know about it, let me tell you, it is a crazy, ruthless and unbelievable world.



Heard of these? Snail slime masks, Placenta hair masks, Seaweed bathing creams, Microblading.... and endless other such insane stuff. These are insane but quite popular among beauty enthusiasts and they even swear by the benefits of such products.

These are otherwise cringe-worthy products in my world. I use gramflour+tumeric face mask, Coconut oil hair mask and  a normal, cheap bathing soap and my skin i…

He could see her directly ahead through the shimmering blue glass window of Cafe Hafooda in Saket. The afternoon sun streamed along from the western side, casting long shadows across the table. Cyrus glanced up at Jennifer and then down at his mobile. 

JJ liked Cyrus but she had a lot of questions in her mind. What was he doing? Secretly texting someone? Investigating without her help? Trying to solve something before someone else is on it?
She was on this case with him. She wanted to do this for herself and for that little child and may be something more than she could comprehend. Whatever was his rationale, JJ decided to confront him. She spun herself around, sat down and found herself face-to-face with Cyrus. There was a sparkle in JJ’s eyes and Cyrus’s were menacing with thirst. Her tattoo seized Cyrus’s attention most. He was transfixed. There was some kind of ‘Ul…
