Friends and being friends...

God chose your parents... you choose your friends!

Well, I've been blessed with some to the best I could wish for and our journeys have been nothing short of being adventurous and memorable.

Friends constitute an important part of my life and this post an ode to the best of my buddies!

(we have traveled far and wide... to the jungles)
(here at KGudi-BR hills)

(and in pursuit of many falls...)
(here at Magod falls, Yellapura)

(through the streams...)
(here at a stream in Sakleshpur trekking from Rottikallu homestay, Sakleshpur)

(commuting by train...)
(train journey to Londa, near Ganeshgudi)

(rejoicing on accomplishment...)
(here at Sathodi falls, Yellapura)

(helping hands in water...)
(here, river rafting on river Kali, Karnataka)

(for the conversations and discussions...)
(here at Bandipur National Park)

(relaxing times after a long day...)
(here atop Kodachadri peak)

(rejoicing moments...)
(here on a break en-route conquering Kodachadri peak)

(wandering through the fields...)
(here wandering through a field in Sakleshpur with Gaitonde, hero from Karavali region)

(posing with the best buddy...)
(here with Raja...a prince in true sense)

(going downhill with backpacks...)
(here descending from peak KumaraParvatha)

(the camping spirit...)
(our best camping atop peak KumaraParvatha)

(together in search of the elusive tiger...)
(here at Tadoba tiger reserve...)

(moments of joy and togetherness)
(here with Guru... a guru for us for many things!)

(for the joy of sunsets...)
(here at Jenukal view point, Yellapura)

(and during the fatigue of climbs...)
(here ascending a steep cliff en-route KP)

(visiting heritage places...)
(here at Doddamane-Malgudi house, Agumbe)

(or on a trek...)

(or helping out to relax...)

(rejoicing in unison over an accomplishment...)
(here at Hidlumane falls, Kodachadri)

(friends are forever... an extension of yourself... truly!)
All I can say is thank you for being a part of me!
