And finally the plans were implemented…
Just for clarity, many words will be used which may be known to you but for understanding the exact reference, please read The Blind Ride (where it all began)..
So, let’s start..
The last #BlindRide was unique in a sense that we had 2 more friends then. But this time around those 2 friends weren’t able to join us. We missed them dearly and once they are back, you guys can hope for another #BlindRide post 😛
We so dearly wanted a #BlindRide because the work was getting hectic and there was not much fun lately and hence we decided to have it last Friday. Unlike previous time, Friday was good because if it had been a Thursday then definitely we all would had been in much trouble.
Friday night, we went to a great restaurant to start off our awesome weekend with good food and the food was delicious and we were also joined by another dear friend. The dessert there was MIND BLOWING, lip smacking 😀
Then we went to a friend’s place because this time around there was a twist. We decided to go the same beach as the last #BlindRide but during sunrise time 😉
So to reach there as it takes around 2 hours so we thought that 3 am will be the suitable time to leave and march towards the awesome destination 🙂
We all shared some jokes at the friend’s place and it was 3:41 am when we left 😀 Of course, we were running late but what mattered the most was that we were together and we were working on the plans and not just talking shit 😉
Last time it was summer and we enjoyed that #BlindRide with our shorts on and had a lot of fun at the beach too. But this time it was totally different scenario 😛
It was so cold that we all had our jeans and shirts on along with the jackets too. Still the cold was immense. The beginning was difficult as it is always in every case of life. The chilly wind and cold made us doubt our thoughts of not opting to go in car and taking our bikes. The option of car would had been easy for us and all the same awesome but we went with the #BlindRide
We decided to go not more than 40 kmph as traveling with more speed lead to tears from eyes and shivers and shattering of teeth 😀 but as we were late so we had to go fast too or else the watching the beautiful sunrise would not had been possible. So, we went fast.
Then a friend said, “The words of a song really fits our situation” and on asking “Which song?”, he sang, “I have become so numb” *on the top of his voice* 😀
We stopped in between for some tea so as to freshen up & wake up the sleepy legs and shoo ourselves of the cold from our body.
We made a stop at this exact spot in the last #BlindRide and some of us had a beer or two then 😉 this time we all were teetotalers 😛
Slowly the dark black sky(I can’t say pitch black as the stars were seeming to smile above us) started to get blue and we realized that dawn is upon us. And we were more 30 km away and we were late for the occasion 😦
We geared up for a faster show and the competition was on. Just as we gathered speed, the road ahead of us seemed blocked. We were confused to see a herd of cows walking. They were like 100+ cows. The milkman taking them to the place where they can milk them but they were all on the road and all we could do was go at snail’s pace 😦
Then once we were able to cross then we went at top speed. 15 km to go and the sky was white and then some geography thing stuck me.
I had a great geography teacher. She used to teach us in such simple yet awesome manner and most of the stuff was remembered by us. And see it helped. God bless her. She had taught that the sun rays brighten the sky but the sun is visible minutes after that. She had said that there is a gap of 18 degrees between the sun rays and the arrival of sun.
I said to my friends that we have to use these 18 degrees to our advantage and reach the beach. Sounds like a foolproof plan to kill the terrorists and be the hero, right? 😀
And the universe never seems to keep shocking us. When we reached the beach, we were like, WHAT?!
We had planned that like last time, we will bath and run kind of naked on the beach but C’mon, there were people every where. Like 200+ people. Universe and it’s vicious games 😉
Unfortunately from Saturday some local festival started which had something related to watching the sun rise for good luck and future. Good for us, that we saw the sun rise and that was awesome but then we had to sacrifice some of our plans too 😛
And finally the sun rose and what a scene it was. It’s not that first time, I was seeing a sunrise but on the beach, it was the first time.
We had an awesome time together. Clicked some pics and had some coconut water. It’s the purest form of natural water is what I learned from a friend 😉
From then we went to Konark temple. It’s also called as Sun temple and it’s said that the first rays of a rising sun falls on this temple. It was the first time again that I had visited that temple in the morning half so it was awesome.
It’s so good that people believe in a higher power and see that power in idols and sun and cows. People need something to place their thoughts on. Knowing that whether it’s actually true or not is of less importance. Believing in a higher power is awesome. We all got rights to think whatever is best for us and hence our own individual beliefs.(these are the views of a Hindu and someone who is a confused atheist)
There we clicked some images and then we headed towards a resort where we had to attend a party for the day.
So you can say that it was a super weekend 😛
On attending the party, while returning on Saturday night it was cold again. We chose a new route for the return #BlindRide and were hr early and safe by 10:30 pm. The main reason behind our early return was the El Classico match between Real Madrid & Barcelona grin emoticon and what a match and what a result wink emoticon Barcelona won t:P
You think I saw the match? I did till 60th minute and then I was in the dreamland grin emoticon
Hadn’t slept the whole of Friday night and Saturday and so sleep was necessary and Barcelona were 3-0 up so what else can give me a good night’s sleep 😀
This is just portion of the awesome day we had. Hopefully y’all also have good times ahead.
One of my friend suggested to name this ride as the #RiseRide. Which name suits best as per you? The #BlindRide or the #RiseRide? Let me know your thoughts and your recent related experiences of holidays and cool weekends 😉
P.S.: The name #BlindRide was termed by my friend who will leave the company where we work and just 10 more days he’s here with us. Good luck to him for his future endeavors. He definitely have helped me and also helped us all in WP by giving us a good thing to share and discuss 🙂
It’s said that ‘Friends who travel together, stay together’. It’s time to declare that we are awesome can definitely stay together and go to unlimited #BlindRides together wink emoticon It’s something which binds us together 🙂
