Nature is not a place to visit, it is HOME!
Do not compare a Trek with a trip to some place or traveling to the mountains. It’s not a holiday or a vacation. Words like ‘trip’ or ‘vacation’ won’t summarize the trekking experience…..
When you go alone on a trip, you are actually not alone – YOU ARE WITH THE MOST HONEST, THE MOST COMFORTABLE AND THE MOST TRUSTWORTHY PERSON ON THE PLANET – YOURSELF.
Someone said if you know yourself, you know the whole universe. It still is and will always be work in progress for me and traveling solo takes me a step closer to MYSELF.
Two weeks of backpacking in Rajasthan, 5 cities, befriending a dozen of nationalities, hundreds of conversations, never-ending journeys, unexpected experiences and one beautiful crush.
My eyes were running from one point to another just to try and find one person who was not clicking photo but just exploring, witnessing, admiring the walls, feeling the weather, enjoying the architecture, being aware of the wet grass underneath their feet, breathing deep the fresh air. But to my disappointment, I COULD FIND NO ONE.
I find the rule of click just one selfie, and not to be bothered about making it perfect, both useful and peaceful during the trips. And it makes me appreciate my decision even more when I see people simply sticking their mobile right in front of their faces everywhere and then spend a lot of time checking whether they have got the perfect selfie or not.
Traveling is something everyone does and most of us love. And why shouldn’t we witness the magnificent nature’s creation from the naked eyes? Though, every time we travel, it does teach us something, make us wiser, broaden our perspective, show us our place in the scheme this gigantic universe and make us feel home. I try to put some of my thoughts, learnings and insights through Travel blogs.
