Time to take chill pills and pauses. Today I am writing about a few pampering ideas. Generally, I recommend anything and everything that’s at your disposal for clearing your mind because nature is in every nook.
“But today calls for special ideas after all it is International women’s day, declared to celebrate the historical, cultural, and political achievements of women.”
If we zone down to India, March is the onset of summer. A small geography trip now!
Summers are hot in the south and hotter in central India as Mr Sun hovers vertically over the tropic of cancer. So what happens in nature? Hot winds, higher temperatures and scarce water sources, Less and dry vegetation. A great opportunity to sight wildlife. Wildlife of all kinds, one with spots, one with strips, one with tusks.
Where can we go then?
North India: The mighty Himalayan Ranges welcome us with fantastic mountaineering activities with plenty of high passes to cross, and importantly it is not so cold now. Pack your bags for trekking, camping, birding (fancier way of telling bird-watching )and maybe even fishing. High altitudes offer not just mesmeric views but keep cortisol at bay.
Central India: Scorching sun can open us into a different world. One of the best places to sight Leopards and Tigers would be Madhya Pradesh (literally translating into the middle) There are a number of tiger reserves and sanctuaries that offer safari rides. A ride into the jungle, stupendous breakfast, bird calls in the background sounds like a perfect plan.
Remember to enjoy the entire ecosystem and how life’s of each animal depend on each other and their love-hate relationship instead of chasing after the big cats.
South India: The peninsular and coastal plains are perfect gateways. Long days of sunshine, thick humid air and lots of salt in the sea or wind near the peaks. South India is blessed with a long coastline and exotic western ghats. Why don’t we try and make a different kind of home-like Stays at estates, Boathouses, Treehouses etc? I even saw a hobbit hole on social media.
Happy rejuvenation ladies! and plan a gal pals trip to crack jokes, do silly things and lift each other up.
