My Love for Travelling

My Love for Travelling

Travelling is in my blood. Whenever the travel bug bites me I have to get out of my house to explore some new places, know some new culture and taste some new food. My love for travelling is eternal and it will keep grow as time progresses.

I’ve travelled to many places, within India, and explored many unknown horizons. I still remember my childhood days when I used to go to Digha & Puri with my parents very often. I was 8 or 9 years old that time but I could still remember those days of playing on the beach and my fear of getting into the sea where my siblings and parents were enjoying the waves. I went to a trip without my parents for the first time when I was in 8th standard. It was my school trip and we were travelling to the northern part of India covering Delhi, Haridwar, Rishikesh and other places. It was a great fun going with the group.

There are no foreign lands. It is the traveller only who is foreign. – Robert Louis Stevenson

My instinct for travel keeps growing and I have also explored certain parts of Assam – primarily upper Assam. One of my friends has his house in Assam, so I was fortunate to travel to one of the seven sister states twice and both the time I stayed in his house. It was a great trip and enjoyed the beauty of the state.

My eternal love from travelling is contagious and it has affected my better half, my wife, Manasi too. After marriage, I gradually made her understand my love for travel and now she is also at the same frequency as mine and now we travel together. As I stay in Bangalore we are trying to cover as many places as possible in the southern India. Our latest trip was to Hampi during the last long weekend of Ganesh Chaturthi. Hampi is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in India. It was a fabulous trip and we enjoyed every possible nuke and corner of the place. But still, we feel that it is not yet covered completely and will make some time again soon to go for the second trip to beautiful Hampi. It would be an injustice if I don’t mention places like Mysore, Ooty, Coonoor, Kodaikanal, Kanyakumari, Rameshwaram, Madurai, Cochin, Trivandrum, Kovalam, Calicut, Coorg, Wayanad, Yelagiri, Beypore, Goa, Chennai, Pondicherry, Mahabalipuram, Vijayawada, Mumbai and Pune in this post where I have travelled. It’ll become a lengthy post if I capture all my travel stint in this one post and I don’t want to bore you.

My love for travelling will continue and I want the travel bug to keep biting me so that I can explore and experience new places. This love is never ending and will continue my travelling spree.

  1. I discovered travelling pretty late in life but I love the idea of a getaway. It serves to recharge and refresh me besides opening one’s mind to so many different experiences – foods, clothes, lifetsyles. I love historical places – it’s amazing the monuments that people back then managed to leave for us. Glad your wife is your travelling partner.

    1. I agree with you Tulika 🙂
      If your spouse is your partner in travelling that increases the intensity and sweetness of the travel 🙂
      Though you have discovered travelling late… its better late than never 🙂
      Go and explore places… its fun and fulfilling 🙂

  5. Hello traveler! I read the first line “Travel is in my blood” and I smiled. I am exactly the same. I feel, I should either be traveling or planning a travel, else I feel there’s something missing in my life. Cheers mate.

    1. Hey thanks Sejal. Yes travel is in my blood indeed. I need to get out of my house every 6 months at least or else I’ll go mad. You need to make time for yourself and start with an purely unplanned trip and get the groove. Then you can start working on the planned trips. Try this out.

    1. Thanks Sonam. I’m glad you liked the post. Yes both me and my wife are travel freaks. We feel suffocated if we don’t go out for travel at least twice in a year. I’ll surely share my experiences from those places.

  6. wow, this is a wonderful thing. I am surprised as to why have you not explored Assam more. I am from Assam and it is a beautiful place. I hope your travel bug takes you there as well.

    1. Yes Tamanna, I hope that too. Assam is there on my travel list. I loved the state with just couple places I visited earlier and want to explore more.
