I am not known for in depth travel plans. Husband is. And I often lie through my teeth to make him believe I have ‘researched’ enough for a trip to give it a go.
But husbands come easy and best friends? Well lets see how this post goes 🙂
Malsej Ghat was a rather impromptu plan (like ‘save your skin’ minute kinds 😛 ) and one which had no concrete sketch of activities. A drive, some friends and that was about it.
The drive took about three hours, saw a lot of traffic jams and an unusual amount of sunlight. But boy when it turned around, it made everything seem magical. The clouds, the meadows and rains everything came together to put it right.
But to start with it took us a million shots (or it seemed like!) and a thousand strategies to get this shot right!
And a few defiant steps with a lot of deaf ear (pretense) to reach this lake and get this pose done!
Not to forget the good ol hunger calling out to a good place to eat. Round the corner comes MTDC
Note: Craziness came free with lunch 😛
Continuing with the ‘plan’ we didn’t turn back and instead took a detour as ‘scheduled’. What met us were these perfect visuals!
On our way back a sudden detour on the side of the road caught our attention, not to forget the large expanse of water body running parallel to it! And this time it did not take a lot of convincing on our part, ‘driver’ himself was interested 😀
We met a clean, picturesque version of lake or dam (jury is still out on that 😀 )
Well so much for the Malsej Ghat plan. Our verdict? Like most of Pune weekend getaways this one too did complete justice to the saying, “Journey matters most.”
In case you still have a question or doubt, ask these two 🙂
Until next time Sayonara 🙂
Impromptu plans are the best. So many clouds in the background. It’s like you can almost breathe it
Such unplanned trips always are full of great fun… beautiful pictures… 🙂
These are some brilliant snaps Richa. Loved the second one specially, the set up is completely serene and it seems like peace echoes all through..
I had fun reading this as if I too was a part of it. 🙂
Nice snaps Richa…looks like you had a fun time………
great fun.. nice photos 🙂
Impromptu plans are the best. And you went on an awesome day… full of clouds and fresh air.
Where next? 🙂
Beautiful pics :). I have heard a lot about Malshej Ghat but never got a chance to go there.
But when I was studying in Lavale, Pune, I got a chance to experience such climate and visuals at college itself since we were located at quite a height ;). Studying at a hillstation haha :D.
weekend getaway plan ,so good!
Oh my god – you made me smile so much through this post!! Very well written and I loved the visuals too.
And yes ofcourse its the journey thats important and not the destination. Cheers
This one’s so cute! And impromptu plans are always fun, always! And when it comes to travel plans, I give the key to husband for everything. Doesn’t matter how much amount of research I do, it’s always less as compared to my husband’s research! 😀
Sure you had a great time… Here’s to many more!!
