What are you doing this April? Perhaps you'll wallow in a sofa, inhale the rest of your past-best easter eggs and talk about the weather. Sounds fun. Except you could be doing this.
Here at Adventurist towers, we've always had a bit of a soft spot for April. Too often overshadowed by her siblings probably because it's really bloody hot.
Sorry April, we're blowing your cover. It's time to talk about the middle-child. Not as obviously good looking as first born January, full of parties and pretty piss-easy roads. Baby August insists on being a little bit longer and likes to throw stormy tantrums.
Meanwhile, the April Run is the Spicy One. She pootles along in the hottest and most slimy season, along some of the roughest roads in some fairly ropey corners. To do the Rickshaw Run in April - that takes some swollen bally bits.
In April, you'll run from sandstorms in a desert at one end and visit the wettest place on earth at the other. Our April runners have hit Jaipur, Jodhpur, the Taj, Lucknow, Bodgaya, Varanasi, Nepal, and Darjeeling. Our teams have also gotten lost in the middle of bum-fuck nowhere. You might even break down there. Try not to punch yourself in the nose.
If India is an overweight goddess of plenty, in April you get to loop your arm around her waist and she'll take you out dancing. Every driven at night in Bihar? You can in April. Ever raced a toy train up a mountain? You can do that too. Been chased by bandits? Only if you're really lucky.
You are welcome, anonymous feedbackers.
Still unconvinced? These are the highlights from the 2015 April Run:
What are you doing with your April? You should probably do this.
