ASUS Zenfone 2


Trekking is a part of my life. Being a wanderer you have to be prepared to tackle the hurdles that come your way. So my backpack is loaded with necessary things to make the journey light and flexible. Not to forget the technological innovations these days, those are complimenting the essence of travelling. 

SMARTPHONE! Has a very significant part while trekking. It encapsulates many things that aid travelling. Like finding directions, capturing moments, connecting with the world in the moment of distress, work on the go (at times you just can’t ignore it) and still having enough juice to make the home coming journey entertaining/relaxing by watching movies, listening to songs or playing games. So choosing a good Smartphone is as important as packing your backpack. 

ASUS Zenfone 2 is the right companion for trekking. Here are my 5 reasons: 

BoostMaster: 

Plans work best when they are spontaneous. That’s when there is very less time to charge your phone. Hey! ASUS Zenfone 2 has backed you up with this. BoostMaster technology charges the phone with double the speed. It shoots up the juice in the battery to 60% in no more than 39mins. BoostMaster’s fast charging for 10mins, you get 4hrs of 2G talk time and 2.7hrs of 3G talk time. This particular feature is very useful while trekking because you might get just few minutes to charge up your phone at a particular halt.

Operation: Ag jubilé

“Hey sis, what surprise shall we plan for mom & dad’s 25th wedding anniversary?” It was just a week away and I was still struggling for an idea. She was just pacing around in her frustration “Argh, I’m trying to think of one since last one month. So far we have given greetings, made fancy craft items, and surprised them with gifts on their previous anniversaries. But this particular one needs to be very special, one that is memorable especially for them”. I was thinking over the pointers which she mentioned “Whatever we plan it should be about them rather than what we feel for them. Let us jot down a few memories they have shared with us of their golden days. We shall figure out something on that line.”

For the next few days we were recollecting the memories in a labyrinth of our thoughts.

Floaters...

ADVENTURE is an integral part of my life. To me it is ‘A divine venture. In my childhood doing a wheelie or slow cycling thrilled me. I even used to ride my cycle on under construction roads in order to maintain balance and take it as far as I could without touching my feet down. These small ventures of mine gave me a much required confidence boost & added stars to my self-reliance. And as I grew up, so did my thirst for the escapades!

Last year I was on a spree of treks and adventure sports. I started with moonlight rappelling at Duke’s Nose, then a trek filled with Fireflies at Rajmachi, later on I trekked to Kalsubai at the top of the highest peak in Maharashtra. River Rafting at Kundalika River in Kolad was an intermission to my adventure last year, which without any doubt will continue this time.

River Rafting is a very special page in my life’s dairy. Not because it was my idea and that I pulled my friends along with me but this particular experience tested me on my weaknesses.
