Nature / Landscapes
Singin’ in the rain.. Have you ever done it? Like, literally sing in the rain. Rain is the most beautiful natural phenomenon and equally mesmerising is the sunset, the sunrise, the winds swaying before a storm or the volcano about to erupt. Reconnecting with nature is appreciative of immense mental and physical health, not to mention the sheer enjoyment being surrounded by beautiful scenery can bring. Take a spiritual tour of the golden stupas rising out of the lush green fields or equally barren mountains, go for a Himalayan summit, appreciate the flora and fauna of a quaint town by the countryside, or experience the desert safaris. Natural wonders are plenty. From the meandering, flirtatious rivers to the mighty mountains and valleys, from the green plantations to the vast deserts, from rainforests to the glaciers, every part of the world is filled many such wonders. Feel the bright sun on your face, let the greens soothe your eyes, breathe in the fresh crisp air, embrace the rains, dance to the tune of chirping birds. Let your spirit wander with joy!
Outdoors / Adventure
Is adrenaline your calling? Do you dream of inching the glorious mountain peaks? Do you want to jump out of planes or swim with sharks? Do you surf your way up the waves? Do you just want to sail along beautiful islands? Or do you just want to go deep down the ocean and scuba dive? Depending upon whom you ask, the answer might vary. What’s clear is that it means something different for every traveler. Go push beyond your comfort zone, invite yourself to be spontaneous, resourceful and creative, challenge yourself to something you haven’t done before. It is time to go for the rafting expedition with your friends, or glide over the mountains. Simple yet take the hot-air balloon ride and stock in the awe-inspiring landscapes. Take that long pending solo bike trip and get yourself a iron butt. Whatever it might be, just find your calling and answer it with utmost honesty. The world is your canvas, anyway!
