A night under the stars of Triund
The night dawned making way for a beautiful milky way and we sat beside the bonfire singing, talking and cooking maggi. It’s true what they say, if you truly want to know someone, take them to a place where there is no wifi. And truly, we found a better connection in this wilderness than we ever had before.
