EXPLORING WORLD WITH OPEN ARMS:)

Packing bags for my next adventure,
I stumbled upon a thought..
Why am I intensely fascinated with the world?

A smile came and broadened
As thoughts rippled through.
Interpreting my affinity for adventure.

Wanderlust me..

Answering “Why do I love the world?”

Travelling made me a complete person. An overhaul from a shy, timid girl to a confident woman who is curious to explore varieties spread across the world!

A gradual yet consistent change that brought me closer to myself and the world.

1) Getting out of Comfort Zone

Happy in my comfort zone, I was reluctant to move an inch here or there. You won’t believe, I used to be a couch potato with few friends. And strangely, I didn’t wish to come out of my eat-sleep-repeat mode. Till one day my cousins ‘packed’ me along with other things for their trip….well literally packed 😂
The trip initiated a pleasant change in my life.

I began to realize that there’s a life beyond what I could visualize in my comfort zone. This world is full of many undiscovered paths that need to be explored.

2) Carving an Inquisitive me

The journey from a ‘Couch Potato’ to an ‘Explorer’ was terrific!
Once tasted the flavour of travel, I became curious to explore more to know more.
About the limitless landscapes, the dodging hills, the amusing valleys, the colourful people, the sumptuous foods, the beautiful Flora and fauna, the majestic architecture….there was so much to do. My fascination with the world had just begun.

3) Meeting distinctively Interesting People

Over the years I’ve developed a habit of meeting new people and absorbing their culture.
By grabbing the opportunity that travelling is, I find many instances of sharing regional vibes with people across the world. And for me, this is the best incentive.

4) Tasting food from around the world

Travelling is a bliss for a foodie like me. I get to taste variety of deliciously tempting delicacies. I’m not very fussy about food but real good food is what I always crave for. By travelling to near and far places, my taste buds are pampered;)

This encourages me to pack my bags for the next travel.

5) Exploring beauty of diverse landscapes

Confined to the four walls of my home, I was unaware of nature’s beautiful spread.

Travel made me alive.
I’ve been to hills to plateaus to plains and every journey brings me closer to nature.
I find a deep connection between humans and nature. There’s a need to spend sufficient time in the lap of Mother Nature to understand the depth.

6) Procuring a Confident me

Last but not the least, travelling has the biggest contribution in building up confidence in me. Be it exploring unknown places or interacting with strangers, there’s a visible change!

Bharatpur: India: Where Birds Dare 🐦 

It was last weekend and weather was tempting. I so wished for a memorable weekend trip. Wishes do come true when you try with all your resources. Thus happened my trip to Bharatpur.

Bharatpur is just 180 Km from my place. The place is famous for Keoladeo National Park ( A UNESCO’s World Heritage Site). It lies on the Golden Tourism Triangle of Delhi–Jaipur–Agra and hence a large number of national and international tourists visit Bharatpur every year.

We booked a 3* hotel ‘The Bagh’ in Bharatpur and checked in Saturday afternoon. We were told that the bird sanctuary closes at 5:30 pm. So we opted to visit the sanctuary the next morning. Saturday evening was spent in the hotel. Far from my imagination, the hotel itself housed a number of birds. Peacocks. Peahens. Wild cocks and hens.

Amidst forest bliss, Bharatpur is a visual treat everywhere. Calm and serene. The only voice you’d hear is the chattering Of birds:)

Sunday was the day:)

We started off at 7 in the morning. Equipped with our cameras and binoculars. (Later we found that our low power binoculars were of no use in watching far-off birds)

It was our first visit to a Bird Sanctuary, we were excited beyond limits;)

At the entrance of Keoladeo National Park, there were rickshaws and bicycles 🚴 for hiring. We realised that exploring the 5 kilometre place without a conveyance was not possible. We hired a guide who was equipped with a powerful telescope. The magical journey to the Bird Sanctuary began:)

The Bird Park being natural habitat of birds, is the witness to natural activities birds are engaged in. How birds pray, how birds sleep, how birds perch and how birds take flights. The movement of birds was so beautiful that I couldn’t take my eyes off them. Thanks to our guide, we could watch and click distant birds. The guide was so talented that he could spot the birds with their chirps!

Sharing some beautiful pics with you:)
