“FlipkartOutdoor Meet by Indibloggers”; The Concept of this meet itself was really unique and new. The moment I saw it was happening in Bangalore, I registered myself for this meet. The Day it was planned to happen I slept only 4 hours before that (bloggers lifestyle is late night blogging always). I was supposed to wake up at 6 in the morning since I had planned to follow the indibus from my bike (I didn’t know the route to resort). I somehow managed to wake up at 7 and made my way to the pick-up point on time. There I found no one on their own vehicle expect me (quite depressing though). Managed to make my way to resort and also traced the route for my way back alone. Reaching the resort at 9:15am, I was really hungry and was looking for some breakfast.
Now the fun begins!!
The Indi Team gathered everyone in a cool shady area and we could see the various brands like sony Action camera, Altec Lansing, Samsung gear and Polaroid cubes, red chief, Garmin and other with their products getting ready on table.
The moment I entered the resort, it felt like serious fun and adventure on the way. Since I believe I am kind of adventure loving guy, I felt like making the right decision of not missing on this great team activities and action sports.
Soon we were given green flag to start with breakfast that was awesome by the way. And then we again collected at the same place. Forgot to tell you that I made 2 new friends on breakfast table Thousif and Chaitanaya (Hey hi guys, hope you have read this article).
Then was the team building activity which I would say should be the part of each Indiblogger event, since it gives you a chance to meet and know new bloggers around you.
We got attached with a tea of 10 people. I can now name many of them here:- Pooja(pooh), Prashant, Rahul, Aniruddha and we 3. For the rest, sorry forgot your name.
We started off with lots of fun activities like Altec challenge for headphones, which we won. Then getting some great insight into latest action camera from sony which was very poor in terms of battery backup (came to know when we used that during our ground action), Samsung gear classic (one of the most hot tech item on the resort to explore), and many more.
We took our sample of all the action gears and tech and started with our team on the various activities that were part of the Indiblogger plan like, Tent building activity which was fun again.
We did build our tent in just 1 min and 53 seconds and we were expecting a win on that time numbers. The team was pretty sure but I doubted it.
Next we went to the water zorbing, land zorbing, rock climbing, archery, money bar crossing, bridge crossing and many more such adventure activities.
I made my first ever rock climbing attempt and surprisingly, I actually made it to the top of the wall and that was an amazing moment. I would surely like to thank my team mates for that support while I was on the wall.
Now time for lunch, and they had pretty good arrangement for that as well. We had our mock tail coupon with us and we went straight to drinks first.
Finishing up with the lunch we all again collected in the same area and there goes the results for many activities.
Now came the surprise element (surprise for me actually):-we won the tent building competition (which I doubted about). Our team did well in the complete planning and execution of quickly building a tent from nothing.
Then it was followed by winning the rock climbing challenge, which again was a very happy moment.
Now it was time for some guns and shots. I am talking about paintball. We struggled to save our joker from the opposite team but I think we had played good defence anyways. I lost my ammo (30 shots) in between the game and was thinking if I could dive and get the gun placed just 6 feet away but that was against the rules.
No regret we lost because it was a fun losing that game as well. Well played team 4.
Another fun filled, amazing and adventurous day out with bloggers was about to end by 4:45pm when our team was tired and wanted to relax. Then came the idea of Fish Spa. We were just 5 people left from Team 4 who stayed back even after 5pm and went for the fish spa. It was one of the best spa experience I had and the only spa experience till now.
Time to go back home and write the memories in the form of a beautiful post like this and share it with everyone who are thinking what bloggers do in their spare time.
Waiting for another good meet soon!!
