Travel Is A Bliss...

Travel is an escape from the monotony of the vicious cycle of life. Through traveling, you come to know the world inside you which is harmonious with each gracious part of nature that gets shaped by almighty. This sometimes directly and sometimes indirectly connects us with that highest soul through the breath we take in the open air and open the arms while sitting in the lap of nature.

The human mind is extremely unstable.

It always yearns for withdrawal from conventional lifestyles and so-called scenarios. Expedition always adds fuel to the dull and dismal life of a human being.

In other words, a trip eternally unravels new doors to wisdom. So we should wander around the world to satiate our craving for exploring new sights and picturesque scenery and so forth. 

The world has so much to discover and to observe, every trip we do opens a new chapter of history and literature which lay hidden beneath its soils. The more you dig the better you know about the cultural beauty and heritage of a particular civilization, community, tribe, and about some unexpected people, we met while exposed that get extincted between the cluttering life of people. Traveling a place gives us new knowledge and experience. It opens a new window in our minds and refreshes a deadly past that lay buried within those places, monuments, and soils.

Traveling to new places where no one knows you, has always been peaceful and calm, with no work pressure and deadlines. Just you with that place whose silence speaks, the untold story you wish to hear to escape your worries for a while. The fresh air which kisses your forehead and plays with your hair reveals a new person within you, who loves beauty and adventure. This internally makes us feel like we are about to live here this whole world or nation as one family.

Every place has its cuisine and local food, which makes you try new varieties of food, making you skip those boring and regular meals you order from restaurants or cook at home. You change routine, and try to discover yourself and feel those mountains, trees, lakes, beaches, or monuments you visit with your family or alone. 

An escape from social media and the painful scrolling of your feed is no more important to you. You communicate with your surroundings and engage with the culture around you. These activities release stress and make your mind relax. Doing certain tasks regularly makes it monotonous, you forget about the self-time your body needs. Travelling also makes you feel independent. You make new plans and ideas, sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t, but still, you experience something new. Hence, taking a break from that dull schedule is always helpful for your mind.

So treading towards untrodden paths of life always boosts our confidence and spirit.

Changing of climate and weather also add some new fragrance to our odd life. That's why somehow physicians advise changing the place to experience the new world with a fresh perspective.
