Nature Beckons

Traveling indeed is an amazing experience for it opens the mind, refreshes and brings out life’s new dimensions. Just like others I have travelled lot on work and or with family.

But this time I heard my inner self which wanted me to be heading – alone.

The nature offers you an unparalleled experience and that’s the true charm. you may bask in sun and feel the surroundings soDSC03300

beautiful that you lose yourself. Fresh water streams become your water source and local

dhabas your favourite eateries offering you basic yet pure food.

I always believed and loved the nature. I think it is in my blood.My favourite pastime and hobby was and is to explore and be with nature. It brings in fresh energy in me.

Whether I was on foot or in a car, whenever I saw something interesting, I explored it.  I met and struck good conversations with locals, walked the forest trenches with mountain dogs, gazed at beautiful fields and pristine mountains, and spent time in some solitude.

I can’t think of a moment when I’ve experienced freedom more intensely than on this road trip. It gave me confidence to drive in any terrain, believe in self, prepared me for further trips and the biggest of all joy within.I am pepped up to take more frequent short breaks hope my wife and my peer boss does not read these lines.

The nature has bestowed us with so much to see and experience only if we open our eyes and ears to them. With every bit that I moved I felt  more joy the good scenes, the drive the aura of the place was all captivating.

I’ve come to these conclusions while traveling, but they’re just as applicable to everyday life. Money is no guarantee to attain fulfilment I saw many people healthy and more contended than possibly you and me would be.

Striking the work life balance  Follow your passion.

There are certain traits that I learnt– it made me realize that I can be solely responsible for myself, revel in my own company, learn as much from fleeting encounters as deep relationships, trust my gut yet put my faith in strangers, feel utterly free in my mind and soul. And for that feeling, I urge you to travel solo at least once in your life.

That’s it for now, let the action begin …. Get…..Set….Go……

Me n myself …. Only one life

Hi, let me start with my name, the first and most beautiful gift I got from my parents “ASHWANI ARORA”, I am in my mid forties and a marketing researcher by profession with 2 sweet kids and a caring women at home (my wife)

I always harnessed the thought of going on a sabbatical and exploring India on my own, in my own terms.

However till a month back this was just a thought that lingered in mind. Travelled I have, but in the most conventional way either for work or as Tourist.

It is only this year that I took 3 weeks off and planned a trip that appeals my senses more than ever. I wanted to be one with nature with as few humans as possible. A small beginning.

I hope to inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and discover the world! Its an amazing feeling.I am no authority and yet to master the traits. But enjoyment and fulfillment is anybody’s right.

Unlike most of the travelers who are excellent writers I am new to this, nevertheless the experience that I will share through visuals (edited by my friend Manish who is an avid photographer) may be as captivating as some of the writings by an avid full time travel blogger.
