“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.”
— Jawaharlal Nehru
I am no different from you who always wanted to run away from things ordinary – most of the times. I always wanted to believe that I was born a traveler or maybe I was a wildling in my past life all rugged up just wandering about anywhere – not bounded by oaths or loyalties from the seven kingdoms. Solitary wandering is giving me wet dreams at night. And dreaming of travelling during the day gets me by at work.
I get my fix by doing the long haul backpacking to places that are within my means. I preferred going the long way around to see the gentle progression of cultures and traditions by every single mile in between them. Doing the long hauls also gets me the vibe and somehow picks into the psyche of the local people on how they live the way they normally do. As I was starting to travel, I began to realize that some things that you have held true for a long time were not as valid apparently from other places. Maybe it was one of the turning points why I want to travel more. One big downer is that naturally I’m a f***in’ shy. I live a pretty solitary life. I shy away from backpackers hubs and would rather do my travels alone or do it with long-time friends. I guess that is also one thing I hope to change. To travel and make friends.
I believe that every travel should come with good photographs. I know I have been struggling with my photography skills and my photo stills are work in progress. I wish in due time I will get used to my equipment and use them for what its worth.
Clockworks are normally long for a full-time slash contractual slave like me then suddenly they become incredibly short during your vacations. So then long haul travelling is impossible. But for a few fleeting moments slash paid time offs in between 12-month-full-time-desk-job, I hope to collect small meanings from the places I visited that would somehow shed light to my otherwise boring existence.
