"When you get a chance to come close to the beauty of nature, thoughts cease, and you become one with the moment and merge with the divine energy. So grateful". They are revelling in nature and each other's company. " What a blessing to be able to visit such divine places with my soulmate" - Virat Kohli on Instagram.
The Bhutan ChroniclesThe two have been indulging in trek expeditions, feeding calves along the way, hopping into Sabzi Mandi's, eating hearty meals in the lap of the Himalayas and enjoying the rusticity of the magnificent mountain region. The love birds are truly enjoying their vacation, and all we can do is gawk at their pictures.
To celebrate Virat's Birthday, the duo made it to a monastery in Bhutan, sought holy blessings and lit candles to commemorate the special occasion.
A Moment of Pure Human ConnectionOn the couple's 8.5-kilometre trek expedition, the two encountered an act of kindness which reinforced their faith in humanity.
They shared their experience of a moment of humility when they walked into a family in a small village during their trek where they stopped by to feed a 4-month-old calf. The humble family approached the two weary travellers, oblivious to their popularity & identity, offered them a cup of tea and the couple obliged.
They head home, strike a conversation over tea and were treated with genuine warmth and love. The duo was stoked to have encountered such a rendezvous where they were just considered as 'two tired trekkers' by the kind family. They went unnoticed on their vacation, and they were more than happy about it!
Anushka Sharma wrote “Whoever knows Virat and me very closely, know that both of us live for such moments of genuine, simple & pure human connection. It fills us with such joy and peace, knowing that they just wanted to be kind to two random foreigners (plus our guide) without seeking anything in return.”
