Inside Traveller’s Shoes?
Being brought up by parents in transferable jobs comes with its own perks. All my childhood I’ve stayed throughout India and been to many others, with no one place to call my home. I guess the Travel Bug bit me quite early. My young impressionable mind had the opportunity to understand and see that there’s more to life than “the norm”. For that, I am extremely grateful to my parents.
Music has been a part of me since the very beginning, so don’t be surprised if I break into a song at off moments (I’m trained classically after all). I adore my cats and happen to be a proud Cat-Mama, though you won’t find me discriminating with animals. Oh, and I tend to begin most days with an emphasis on personal well-being and development.
I have always been fascinated by art, the marvels created by mere hands, and you’d probably come across me scribbling furiously into my Bullet Journal when we first meet. And lately, I’ve found the power of narratives extremely alluring. This blog is a memento to this art of writing I’m slowly falling in love with, only too late in life. Here I am, asking you to follow me as I present a glimpse into the world I see.
Looks Like To Me?
Travelling is the embodiment of practical and experiential learning; it’s about the people you meet, the wealth of stories they carry. It’s about sharing joys and sorrows, finding out that our souls are connected despite our circumstances. And most importantly it is looking at a place as not just another photo-op. I like exploring spots that we often seem to overlook in our daily rush and bustle- with a focus on making sustainable choices.
I believe in enjoying the small things and have always been intrigued by how someone who’s stayed in a particular city for an elongated time manages to not explore it in that duration. We live in an era where we live in a place and yet be completely oblivious to its history, culture and location of different areas that make it up.
I think it’s high time we change that, get out of our desks, the 9-5’s and be a wayfarer for once?
