Chennai has a new fun element inaugurated on 12th March 2016. So get ready for the adrenaline rush. If you are the kind travelling on the ECR, you could not have missed the WildTribe Ranch next to Crocodile bank and Jade resorts. It is not a new kid in the block for Chennai but just for ECR since the adventure park has just moved from Ponneri to ECR after successful 9 years there. WildTribe called us to have the first feel (isn’t it thrilling?) through Chennai Bloggers Club (http://chennaibloggers.in). Here is our experience at the venue. For those not the real adventurous or the little fuzzy ones, here is a sigh of relief. WildTribe focuses on two main things – Safety and Hygiene. We had it proved when we were refused to try few of the adventures since safety check was not completed yet. Safety boards and precautions are there in red and yellow everywhere and the operators are clear on the permissible age and weight giving us the confidence we need to get onto the adventurous trail.
Travelling today has a lot of strings and if you are travelling with family, most of our time is spent in gathering people, ensuring everyone is comfortable and making sure all their needs are met. Additionally, safety of baggage takes top priority and in case, it is a longer trip, baggage grows more in number. Travel times is about one or the other keeping awake to ensure baggage stays with us. Additional care points when taking along elderly people lies in ensuring all their accessories such as spectacles, mobile, medicines go along with them wherever they go. This is not the issue with large groups alone, even when we are travelling alone or being a frequent traveler in a touring group, we carry a lot of our gadgets such as camera, tripod, mobile, lens, laptops, cards, external HDD and so many to make travel blogging or purpose tours fully covered to have an impact on our audience.

As years went by, their enthusiasm for surfing grew and soon they found themselves with a notorious reputation for their loud voices, large fin-like noses and the habit of ditching school to catch some waves. Today, their old teachers still laugh about how, on several occasions, they unsuccessfully attempted to drag the two boys off their boards and into class (the brothers were apparently oblivious to the shouting figures on the beach).
