9.30 am start at Zorba the Buddha with tea & introductions – this was the perfect setting to start off a treasure hunt challenge and all the couples enjoyed a stroll around the farm house to admire its beauty and peace. The teams were all given a sling bag with water, a map of Delhi, a notepad & pen and their individual Team cards! After each challenge they had to have their team cards stamped. Before heading out all teams were also given snack boxes by Angels in my Kitchen to keep them going through the day!
1st challenge was a poster challenge by Jim’s Jungle Retreat. The poster was a beautiful collage of all the animals found in the forest. It was like a puzzle and the couple teams needed to find the fish in the puzzle. Those who found the fish first were given the first clue.
