My Khoobsurat Moment on a Mountain!

 

Hey everyone!

Those who follow me on Instagram would remember that my husband and I had taken a climbing trip to Mount Fuji (the highest mountain in Japan at 3776 m) about a month back. I am not the fittest person and to be honest, the trip was really physically challenging for me! Mount Fuji has a gentle slope at the base but gets steep and rocky as you climb. The winds were getting stronger as we climbed, the terrain rockier and the ashy dust flying around didn’t help either!

My Week in Instagram Photos! (Vol.29)

 

Hey everyone!

Hope you’re having a great weekend! We’ve had an exciting (though hectic) weekend so far but planning to unwind and relax on Sunday. Today we headed out for a day long trip to Mount Fuji (highest peak in Japan, about 3 hours from Tokyo) and Hakone which is a beautiful area near Mt.Fuji. The scenery was breathtaking and I’ll share some pics in another post!

These are some pictures that I posted on Instagram in the past few days – the usual mix of beauty and food with a few pics from today’s trip.
