I have come to believe with my heart-and-soul in something that can be aptly summarized by Mike Ditka incredibly profound and well-thought quote... “I don’t believe in living in the past. Living in the past is for cowards. If you live in the past, you die in the past”.
Still I have too much flashback of past moments, and it’s quite challenging to be gratified where you are when you are aware that there are locations where pure bliss exists.
So here are 8 places where I sat down, no matter what people were thinking of me, no matter what mood I was before, no matter with whom I travelled with… 8 places that made me forget everything for a while and taught me to live in the moment.
Kochi is on my list for 3 reasons. 1st it was my first complete trip which went as I planned. 2nd was the coast, jetty ride and the food. 3rd is obviously historic places and culture. Kochi is one of the gorgeous places in India.
I departed from Fort Kochi on a boat. It was an exhilarating to watch boat navigate through tiny, verdant canals and slow and clam back waters surrounded by greenery all around. Evening I went for a long walk on Cherry beach. Sometimes a walk on beach clears my head.
