On a Travel Spree - The Calender Year 2009

10/29/2009 04:34:00 AM

A few days, and 2 months left over of the year, Is it a good time to analyze how the year 2009 had been for me? 
may be yes? 
may be not a bad idea to jot down all the write-ups and picture sets together in one post with a brief introduction of each or just the links perhaps? so well, a little break from another few upcoming long roopkund travelogues lets go ahead and write how this page, which I first created in feb 2007, has been doing this year.

Beginning Dec 19th 2008, when I stepped out for my first trek to karanataka's third highest peak, Tadiyanmole, If there is something, that has been constant this year for me, then that would be traveling. (ofcourse I am not going on to the work affairs much) and so had been this blog, kinda shifting a bit more on to travelogues side.

Throughout these 10-11 months, I not only could strike a balance between trips to mountain and beaches, (alternative) and enjoyed the change immensely, but also made lot of positive friends from these trips too. From people in my first trip to Karwar, I got inspiration for photography as well, A hobby, which I always have wanted to pursue, but never really brought to materialize. Soon I got my first DSLR and gears, and that surely added some ultra fun in the hiking and other adventure trips. Along with the space that I already had with my domain, and is yet to be filled up, I got another account , pro flickr, to put up pictures. (shows how serious I could be ;-))

Alright, so here I lay a table with my links of travelogues in past and corresponding flickr sets and few upcoming travel plans as well.
