Nature does not belong to us, we belong to nature. Have you ever wondered why people find happiness and solitude in travelling? Humans have been nomads since ancient times, and it has been our trait from time immemorial. Our natural instinct was always to roam, stay close to nature and adapt to our surroundings. It always brought peace to that instinct and self-satisfaction to the soul. Hikes and treks have become the new means of that part of seeking ourselves. No mineral water bottles. Drink from springs and streams, do not worry if it isn’t a renowned brand. Be a part of nature. It is okay to sweat, it is okay to get some bruises, it is alright to not bath for a few days, to try new stuff, to meet new people while travelling, to caress the dogs that lead your path. Be Kind. Let us be humble and grateful for all we are offered by the mother Earth. The whole purpose of travel is to become a better person and establish a bond with nature which is now somehow diluted due to all the modernization surrounding us. When in the lap of nature, let us try to be as sustainable as possible.
Over ice, I’m freezing Beautiful eyes, deceiving We may die this evening Coughing, wheezing, bleeding High, I’m an anxious soul Blood moons are my eyes, stay low Red and black, they glow Under attack, in my soul When it’s my time, I’ll know Never seen a hell so cold Yeah, we’ll make it out, I’ll know We’ll run right through the flames, let’s go.
Why do I travel? It makes me free and digs deep within. It eventually and constantly lets me know; nature is always around us no matter whatever you do and wherever you go. Travelling gives me chills and makes me feel alive. Travelling is not just about reaching a particular destination, it’s about the journey you take where you get an opportunity to feel and see new experiences. While travelling, we take so much with us, our bodies longing for relaxation to a broken heart and so much more. We try to live every moment to overcome all our fears and sadness, and when the journey is over, we come out as better and evolved human beings. I heard someone say ‘This world is a beautiful place, and we have very little time to see and experience it all’. So, pack up your bags and travel, but live your travels and choose to take the positives along with you. It is all about the mindset.
He packed his bag pack with a few basics, windcheater, hiking poles, some other trekking essentials and booked a one-way ticket after a lot of struggle with the availability, but struggle, for him is always ephemeral as he has mastered the art of overcoming every obstacle with dedication and endurance. He managed to book a ticket for the last bus of the day. He wants to escape, escape to explore diversified things. From meeting honeymooners, attending wild parties, indulging in adventure sports seeking peace and serenity. He has a special affinity for the mountains. His previous trips being transformational. He thinks the hills soak the person in its extraordinary magnificence. But he has higher intentions. His sole purpose is to brush up his mind in the lap of Himalayan mountains and start afresh. To him, peace, perspective, and wisdom are best derived from the mountains, and they generously impart it to the surrendered beings who seek to live life to the fullest. He thinks the mountains stand mighty and majestic despite all weathers, making a person drawn innocently towards their mystical aura that exudes compelling purity and sanctity, enveloping the earth entirely in its inextricable fold.
