    Hey nice post buddy!!Really excited to see the place.
    Somebody once said, ‘Life is a book and those who don’t travel read only one page’. When I first read this quote, I didn’t feel the depth of it since I was not a traveler then. But now, traveling has become an addiction. I have been a fitness freak for quite some time now. Combining the two passions of my life – fitness and traveling – what clicks is adventure-sports.
    I have been passionate about wildlife ,trekking ,paragliding,climbing and other outdoors.
    I have always liked getting in touch with people who share common interests.I have recently started my blog on adventure sports in india.You can put your views there and also share your experiences and new places with me.
