What a beautiful feeling it is..."Traveling"...no? Traveling to somewhere you were never before and traveling to familiar ones again as to explore that what you have missed first time or second time or whatever time it is as there always remains something for next trip, Sometimes I find myself longing for the places I have been before and sometimes for the places I'm heading to, Its bewildering that whether I want to stay somewhere or just keep walking like "common man.. Few more miles to go"
As a part of travel, Its not always the landscapes or fancy markets that allures you while traveling, sometimes dilapidated structured, antediluvian crafts, silent faces, old banyan tree, a spring inside the wilderness with crystal clear and shallow waters, an antiquated library around the corner, a shop with passe things,a bakery with rough and black patches on its ceilings,a couple selling those handmade scarfs and gloves, and many such things which doesn't catch an eye in first glance but believe me, are the most beautiful and integral part of the place, you are traveling to. So if you really want to see the soul of that place, you will find it there because these are things living with its history or carrying its grandeur past.
There are many other parts of traveling like food,adventures,sports and fun,shopping!! Sometimes, talks with natives but for me Nothing can beat the charisma of rainy mornings, a journey in such an ambiance provides amazement. I love to Walk with fog,dance with rain,talking to mountains,listening to the water falls. These things make me euphoric,it pauses me for a while,pauses my thoughts with them pauses my quarries also, to give me a better view of things, to provide me a better character of the place or aura,it give the vision to adore the grandeur beauty of nature and revere its enormous power. Being with nature gives me serenity and that is the best part of traveling for me...i.e. "Tranquility"
(let me mention it here "most of the time I use to travel, it happens with me that 60% time rain comes at that place, sometimes for good but for the bad also :-p )
