Life provides situations to ponder over the beauty revealed. But, 'ts too less man realise the gem!

It has been very frequently exhorted about the beauty of travelling. People those who travel a lot around places and new countries are very much envied by those who "think" they are not born as lucky as the person who travels.

TBH, I was an individual who could easily make it to the latter division. I so much loved and dreamt about travelling to places and meet people who stand the chance of any probability and possibility in this life time to have met. Gathering money and asking parents, I made it to few countries.

The truth about making a travel without your hard-earned money is that.. it stinks! For me, I faced a lot of inner irritation when it was any situation for me to use my parents money to satisfy one of my whims or fantasy.

This made me disheartened and I no more felt liking travelling, since I was not able to fund a complete trip to foreign countries.

It was later, I realised what travelling fun truly is.

Travelling is not always about going to new places and meeting new people. At times it gathers the face of meditation. What truly needs to be realised is about opening our eyes to the reality.

I was staying really close to the backwaters in Kerala. But never in my past days have I wondered or adored the beauty around me. People from parts of the world travel to have a glance at this beauty. And me, being here, never have taken it to be a blessing or beauty.

The beauty of appreciating things around you and your situation is the basic lessom to be learned before packing your bags for any international journey.

Take some time to have a solo in your country. You're going to take back home a plenty of reflections to make your travel lust more enthusiastic!

Lonely it might seem. But richness is it characteristic!

We travel parallel. Neither intersecting, nor colliding.
