The world has so many wonderful things and places to admire. One of the most common and important ways of knowing and admiring it is by traveling to many places when and how it is in the affordable limits.
Our place where we are born, where we are living, has given so much to gel with. The lives and circumstances we face are but new and naive exposure and can be enriched by our experiences when we travel. We often get an opportunity to travel for work or visiting friends and relatives or any functions. Every travel or journey has something to learn and rejoice.
Life is bliss when we get to see innovative things around, which we never would’ve thought or seen before. We wouldn’t notice or give a chance to our consciences about many incidents, many mysteries or many miracles happening in and around us. We are immersed in our own world of responsibilities and turmoil. Travel is such an embellished encouragement, we try to enjoy every reason that we come across, away from the routine.
Every experience of learning exposed to the worldly acts of a decade back is quite an experience. If I walk down my memories to a bit far past, I see myself as a small-town girl, first time traveling to a place which was a remote place. That was something a girl would never dream of during those times. Everything was new. I did not have fluency in the most spoken languages as I traveled to Mumbai.
The world seemed so fast and there I was sitting in a corner of the berth with unknown fear inside; observing each one’s behaviour in the coach right from the chai wala (tea vendor) to the beggar, each co-passenger. There was so much to learn but the young mind couldn’t grasp everything at once; as many things were very new to my understanding. The train journey was amazingly beautiful. Slowly I learned thing and my opinion was different when I traveled all alone to my native from Mumbai in the second class enjoying every petty thing happening around.
Life felt wonderful, I met different people, slowly getting into the world with their experiences with enormous interest, gave me a start to see how to build foundations to the future. People taught many different yet wonderful things which made the journey interesting.
Mumbai city is indigenous to its own pace. As I stepped out of the train and into the city, it felt like a paradise. People are very active, any heart starts to be enthralled by life, by that very culture. Local trains journey seems crazy but the main mode of travel has given marvellous experiences to me which I can never forget. Travel and people has a great influence on our life.
Everyone will have their own stupendous memory of their travel to interesting destinations. The first and foremost journey which you remember is the one which gives the best pleasure when recollected. Many such journeys might have been undertaken which exposed the soul to the scintillating new things. We never could have gauged the fun ever before and that would remain memorable anytime in life.
Turns and twists of life teach us innumerable lessons through travel many a time. Those journeys are remarkable with some forceful intent achieved or will be achieved adding it as a success for self or for the family.
Traveling to a place where we can see nature all around gives tranquility to the soul. Nature lovers plan their travel to the nature’s abodes often to get relieved from the worldly pressures. Pleasantries and landscapes take us to a different world altogether.
Memorable travels for me? Well, I have many in my store. After a few years of train travel experiences, life took a turn and made me take a step ahead. One fine day I got an intimation to travel abroad. Time flies and time changes. A small-town girl had come a very long way and now she would have to fly high in a metal bird. It was a pleasant surprise for my emotions, for it was time to travel on the plane. As one feels on the first long journey in a train, it is the same for an air journey. For me, the journey by flight was intrinsic. I was fascinated by the dressing of pilots and air hostesses. And my thought process was fixed as I often felt that only rich and highly placed people would travel by flights as everyone cannot afford the luxury. Like a little child, my eyes were rolling around the environment and ambiguous ambience in the airport and flight. During the journey when I got to talk to a few co-passengers, I understood the circumstances and situations that would make people have a variety of experiences that they face accordingly.
To be honest, having travelled has given an opulent exposure in my life and I think it’s the same for every individual. A passion to gain knowledge with the opportunities available by travelling is one of the best blessings bestowed upon us with the pleasures, situations or necessaries.
Take an opportunity to enjoy, learn and also relish vibrant dimensions of your own dreams and experiences. It would give light to your path of life often. Travel is one of the best modes to get rejuvenated...
Happy Journey Dearies!
