As it is rightly said by someone, ‘If we were meant to stay in one place, we’d have Roots instead of Feet’, I also had a strong inclination from childhood for visiting new places and not just to stick to one place. Coming from a middle-class family, only on few occasions, we managed to have family trips and that too to nearby religious places. I got the real spark to my inner wish to travel the world when I got into my first job after my graduation. Being self-independent got me into realization to follow my inner voice.
It’s been almost 12 years now I have been into professional life which of course help me to fund my trips also. During initial years, I made trips to the northern part of India, though when I got a job opportunity in Bangalore, it added another smiling reason for me to shift my travel focus to the Southern part of India. I found it equally beautiful and made me realise how beautiful our country is. During the course of my professional career, I got a chance to work on an overseas project and then turned to experience a foreign landscape. My first foreign travel happened to be Dubai and I was mesmerized to see how a desert city turned out to be one of the most traveled city in the world. This country’s success is a great example of determination and execution. During this course, I happened to visit many countries including France, Norway, Italy, Switzerland, Oman and every country brought a new dimension of life. Currently, my work location is Dubai and one of my travel interest is of exploring new places here. I have also been writing travel diary on ghoomleyaar.com. My inclination towards writing lead me to contribute to some of the travel blogs where I could share my experiences with others and let the world know, what it feels to be a travelling. Over the years I decided to have a platform where I can share my experiences on my own blog, this idea was formulated with some of my friends and thus Ghoomleyaar was established.
How does it feel to be a traveler?
When I look back myself and think of what role travelling has played in my life, I would count on three words; Maturity, Self-Realization, Content. Travels make you feel responsible, it makes you feel for others and help you to realize how beautiful this world and how lucky you have been. I would end up saying with the quote ‘The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page’.
