In this world of fast paced careers and layers of responsibility, we often forget to refuel ourselves so that we can function smoothly! Travelling is one of those ways to bring yourself back on the track. It is a medicine which heals, and strengthens the healed! For many, it is passionate thrill, or a vacation sport, and yet for many others, it is just a tick off the list. For me, it has been the wild enjoyment of an unplanned backpacking safari or the scheduled itinerary of an educational trip. It has been the silent medicine to heartbreak, and the means of rejuvenating the love between two humans! I have baked myself in the assurance of a family trip and have anxiously undergone the tension of an incognito escapade (like this one). Two humans staying apart and busy with their own lives resort to taking a break and travel to a destination to spend some quality time together; it may be a secret trip, and there may be many places of getting wired, however with the right bit of planning, it is definitely worth a shot!
As I was boarding my train back on Monday night, I felt a strong melancholy for having to go away again, but was forced to accept the fate. As the train started inching away, a hand waved at me, and I felt the impulse to run back; however this wasn’t a film, and I wasn’t any hero. I had to go. With every passing minute, as the distance started increasing, the memories etched stronger inside; they were the basis of our survival till the next one, and had to be kept properly and safe. Puri was nowhere thrilling, but is extremely close to my heart, for the person I share the memories with is for a lifetime!!!
A small tip for those who are planning to go on escapades like this, do not be too apprehensive of what might happen. You will never know where you are going if you do not take a step. Things go wrong all the time, but with the right bit of planning, every minute problem can be easily averted. Shutting down all means of communication is best if you want to go off the grid. However, this is not always advisable; in case you want to stay low profile, make sure you disable location services in your phone. I would request all of you to minimize your device usage for these days. Turning off the internet is the safest option. Don’t upload these pictures; these are your private memories, and are best enjoyed in confidence! In case things go haywire, improvise intelligently! Hop on the train and surprise your loved ones by taking them on a romantic escapade, I am sure this will paint the colours back!
