Summers are always testing for ppl leaving in planes. With time number of tourist going to mountains increases with increasing heat. Amongst all the tourist a true traveller soul thive for the soulful experiences on a journey. There are tough time in everyones life, decisions to be made that take you away from someone special. When one is fighting so much inside, only God's strength is the light that ends the darkness.
Rishikesh is known majorly for the rafting and scenic experience. But for me it was a test to choose traveling over that someone special and gaining an learning experience.
It was holi time, when trip started and I with one of my friend started the trip. This trip tought me to stay calm when we face uncontrollable situations as we cant manage everything and keep faith in almighty as he will take care of the worthy relations when we cant. Thus trip enhanced my belief in HIM and journey defined by him.
