Gay Bombay Trek to Tikona: Report 2 (07/2013)


By Apekshit

Had an awesome time yesterday at the GB trek to Tikona Fort. Excellent weather, beautiful scenery and wonderful company.

The trip started with yummy Theplas in the bus and a round of introductions. The journey time just whizzed by with Antakshari in full flow. Loved the war of songs old and new and the ila arun medley at the end of it!

Poha in the breakfast and chai in the cool drizzling weather was a great start to the climb. The trek in itself was splendid, beyond words. Had a lot of fun with scenic views all around, passing through the clouds and mist and clicking dozens of pics. The feeling at the top of the fort with wind blasts and rain drizzles, standing next to your love, was awesome. Singing songs and helping each other on the way downhill we had a good time.

This was followed by an authentic Maharashtrian style cuisine treat. Tasted Bhkakhri for the first time and I hear the chicken was very tasty(me veg). I particularly favoured the Basundi. After lunch it was time for some fun in the river waters just behind the lunch venue. The river bath , the water splash fights with friends and the swimming lessons were good fun. My first picnic and such a fun day!

Thanks GB, Jayesh and Radhey for the awesome picnic arrangements, very well organized and executed. We should have such outings every 2-3 months! 🙂
