COUNTER THE RISKS !!!


All kinds of Adventure travel present some amount of risks. An unfamiliar environment or doubts about one’s ability to achieve the objective can make the experience adventurous. It will be in everyone’s interest if the inherent risks are reduced and controlled to tolerable levels. In this way an environment can be created in which individuals can experience the challenges and benefits of the activity, but with minimal actual risk to their safety.

For most of the travellers some amount of risk is acceptable also; that is how it makes an activity Adventurous. However, no one should seek these risks without considering plans to counter them. At least, one should prepare himself/herself to minimise them. The best approach in this regard is to know about them and train. Be prepared to face them as they come. Person engaging himself in an activity must not consider themselves immune from accidents, regardless of their experience or level of competence

By loading yourself with right knowledge, you can ask your travel company the right questions to alleviate the known and perceived risks.

Some basic questions you need to ask yourself also, i.e., Are you in good physical and mental condition?  Have you found the risks involved? Have you prepared yourself to face these risks?

The team involved in conducting the group must be fully trained in various skills, like, positive leadership, Safety and First Aid. They must also be aware about the risks involved in the activity they conduct. It is also important to use reputable and safe equipment to avoid unwarranted incidents.

The providers of outdoor adventure activities need to understand and appreciate how, and why, accidents may happen and how they can manage the safety of their participants.

In real terms, adventure travel is about opportunity, discovery, and joy. Be courageous. Be open to look for the kindness in the new people that you meet. Pack light and carry only essential items. At all times, be polite, but be inquisitive. Mix within the group or the people you are visiting. Indulge in those moments and memories which you can carry forward in your life. Look for new experiences which you can rejoice. Do it all while staying secured and insured. Do all that you love. Stay safe and stay healthy.

A Night At An Adventure !!!


A Mist formed around the Greens I was,

The dark night among the dwellers of the Jungle,

There roared a voice and roamed in circles,

Alongside midnight from waters vivacious and weighty.

Tall on each Tree, bush and stonework stand died the sound,

Cavernous like the squashing of a secure swarm,

Lone like the dirge of a glimmer,

Quiet like the sob of the sunk.

The woods seemed no more dead but soulful,

As a silhouette of primeval dread,

Amongst the darkness and swirling winds rose a shape,

Amid the soulful ecstasies enormous,

A figure squatted, giant and ascetic,

Front of whom mighty trees laughed,

I  Meandered Solitary Like a whisper,

I  Meandered Solitary Like a whisper,

Which hovers high over dales and knolls.

Than all at once I saw a herd,

A swarm of bison along with herd of Lions,

Alongside the lake, under the trees,

Tangling horns and wrestling  amongst the waft,

Tossing their heads in spry dance.

Among these merry company,

I eyed and eyed but little I thought,

What wealth Nature had brought to me…
