The young author recently got married with Avantika Mohan and he shared his honeymoon pictures on Instagram. Their honeymoon seems far beyond the conventional dreamy honeymoons unlike others.
This is one time I didn't mind posing for pictures! But then the enthusiastic and wonderful photographer (@piyush_chauhan21) asked me to go down on my knee and give her a love letter since I'm a writer and all and that's what we supposedly do. But she refused to take it since the paper was blank. This is a picture of Avantika turning down the paper. You're a writer, the least you could do is write something. So this is what I finally wrote. "I don't know what I did to deserve you but I'm going to do everything to make you stay." She sorta smiled. ? #durjoyavantika #avantikadurjoy #marrymeavantika #wedmegood
Durjoy went to Africa with his newly wedded bride and the couple had an adventurous trip where they climbed the mountain Kilimanjaro. Durjoy shared the image on his Instagram account, captioning the entire experience of climbing a mountain with his better half.
After a six day hectic wedding the last thing I had imagined we would be doing is to climb the fourth highest mountaineering summit (5895m) of the seven summits of the world. But stuck at the Dubai airport without the transit visa Avantika made a split second decision to book flights to Dar Es Salam, Tanzania where Indians can get a Visa on arrival. We had initially thought of chilling at lazy beach town Zanzibar but somehow found ourselves in Moshi town instead. We wanted to climb the Kilimanjaro. At least give it a shot. But soon we realized we could have made a mistake when we saw super fit people at the airport with their huge trekking bags/gear who had been preparing for the climb for months. We wanted to go back. But then decided to stay a day and decide. Not only were we weren't fit enough to do this, we both have banged up knees. I had an ACL tear a few years back and my knee hasn't been the same since. And Avantika had a knee surgery 8 months back and still has crippling pain. We still signed up with an enthusiastic tour operator Nyange. We were bunched up with eight 23 yr old guys from New Zealand and Netherlands who were as fit as they get (Marathon runners, climbers, et al) and a Chinese girl who had summited thrice before. It only reminded us how unfit we were! For the next 6 days we didn't shower and used the mountain as our toilet. We hated it for the most part. Our knees gave up. Every step was sheer torture after the fourth day. It was cold, the climb steep. At the top we were wearing at least 7 layers of thermals. It rained almost every day. Every day we thought of turning back. Avantika was on a steady dose of painkillers for her knee. I found it incredibly hard to pull 80kgs of body weight on the uphill slopes. As much as we hated and loathed our decision, we loved it more. It was one of the most intense things we have been a part of. Just the sunrise and the stars and the quitetude of the night made it all worth it. Every day we told ourselves we will never do something like this again but now that we are back with bones that feel like jelly, muscles still crying out of pain, and peeling skin we cant wait to climb another one. #honeymoon
Here is the beautiful compilation of their other honeymoon pictures.
I bought some real fashionable raps rounds from the stone market in Zanzibar as I didn't pack any summer clothes to start with. I think rap arounds are so 90's but they should come back as they are so comfortable and dressy at the same time. This was one has Hakunna Matata written on it. I have another one I'll post in soon. And hey see the door on my left it's a typical Zanzibar door! #traveldiares#travelblogger#HakkunaMatata#fashion#honeymoon#Summer#travelers#Africanfashion#theresidence#stonemarket#Zanzibar#shoppingtime#streetshopping#AvantikaDurjoy#durjoyavantika
At House of Spices in the middle of Stone Town, Zanzibar. I had to change twice because I sweated like a champion. We stayed here for a couple of hours just to beat the heat. Later we lost our way twice on our way out and wandered for an hour trying to find our rented car. Post that out phones died on us and we guessed our way back to our hotel. All in all it was pretty good. ?? #zanzibar #tanzania #durjoyavantika #avantikadurjoy #travel #traveldiaries #sharetravelpics #blogger
