Iíve never been a very big fan of tea or coffee, in fact Iím one of those few humans who always end up drinking milkshakes at cafes, but that in no way came between my absolute excitement to see the vast expanse and sheer beauty of tea gardens in Munnar. The massive green fields and the utter joy of having the entire place to myself, turned me into a kid behaving outright funny, running through the tiny lanes in between the plantations, stretching my arms as wide as I could while inhaling fresh air more than I should, doing the twirls, singing the songs, wanting to settle here lifelong. And once my madness subsided a bit, I spent the rest of the time helping a lady pluck tea leaves and stems for green and white tea while pruning them with a scissor like instrument that got me excited once again. I think I finally found my alternate career option. This is one of the tea farms at Bodimettu, few kilometres away from main Munnar where I was taken from @sholacrownmunnar as part of my day activities. Oh, itís been just a day and I already miss it so much. #MishtiAndMeatTravels #MishtiandMeatinMunnar #SholaCrownMunnar #SholaCrown #munnar #kerala #keralatourism #southindia #india #travel
You will find her on the road most of the times and every one of her photographs with the descriptions is nothing short of brilliant.
Here's sharing one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite movies. Hope you're all having a happy Saturday. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty. ~ Into the Wild. #MishtiAndMeatTravels #MishtiandMeatinMeghalaya #travel #intothewild #quotes #travel #meghalaya #indiapictures #indiaclicks #storiesofindia #incredibleindia #shotoncanon #wildcraft

I have lots of problems that I face, people who only want images from me, brands trying to brainwash and what not, but only thing I wait for is that few minutes when I get to be with Motorcycles and capture what I am feeling, that's itself is a beautiful feeling. With all idiotic days the only memory which brings a smile on my face is when I see the image I made and it takes me back to the moment I was alone with just the bike, camera and me. There are very few things that can make you feel good when everything goes wrong, and please don't let these beautiful things let go. . . #iamnikon #nikonasia #nikon #hayabusa #suzuki #suzukiindia #shark #vr46 #rossi #valentinorossi #hayabusa1300 #cloudscape #sky #clouds @suzukicycles @suzuki2wheelers @superbikesinindia @nikonindiaofficial @nikonasia

We park. Sit in the pit. Admire the view. Sometimes you arrive an hour or two before required just to make sure everything is fine. What next? It's mostly delayed and this view just makes riders desparate to ride. Every second they just wait to get this on track and to feel the suspension. That torque. Those high RPMS. Those leathers moving around and the beats of their hearts and engines. . . . #yamaha #yamahar1 #wer1 #motorcycle #iamnikon #moment #passion #love #instamoto #motorcycle #nikonasia #trackday #track @yamahar1r6bikes @we_r1_yamaha @yamahamotoreu @r1corsa @nikonindiaofficial
