A Note from a Traveller

Travelling makes us fall in love with life. As we travel, we are born again, and it gives us new purposes and motives. We begin to appreciate life.

When the confines of our homes make life monotonous and dull, travel provides the adventure and thrill we need. It excites us.

It's the saying 'What gives value to travel is FEAR' by the great writer Albert Camus. Yes, it's the fear of the unknown, uncertainty, getting lost. Everything becomes unpredictable when you hit the road, and you don't know what's next awaiting you. It enriches our knowledge of ourselves while we explore the recesses of our minds and understand our moods. It makes us overcome fear and show us our capability!

It is not only about the fancy attire or a colourful photograph posted on the social platform. But, it's also about making memories, gathering stories, appreciating the beauty of a place and finally to become a storyteller for the rest of your life, cherishing those experiences.

When we travel to unknown places and meet new people, we get exposed to their culture, in turn gathering a deep understanding of humanity. It makes us more kind and empathetic. It makes us more organised, and we also learn to adapt. We know we can not pack the whole room while travelling, so we choose what's needed to get going and when we are out of the comfort of our home, we start to adjust. Adjust with other people and cultures, the climates, the foods, the toilet, in every possible way we learn to compromise. When we travel, no one checks out which background we are coming from, what profession we are in or which community we belong to - it is the same for everyone. We are being called TRAVELLERS, the only identity.


Travelling is not always about visiting new places, but seeing them with new eyes or simply through fresh perspectives and experiences. Finally, when we return home, it's full of positive vibes and a whole lot of experience to grow a LITTLE MORE EACH TIME.
