Why do I travel so much????

Hiiiia Friends
How are you doing?

Well my things are going super slow and sleepy.

More than often i am asked by my colleagues and friends same question-Why do i travel so much?How can i get so much leaves?
And whenever my colleagues peek into my leave account,they wonder how i am still having so many leaves left?I try answer
them every time but they don't seem convinced .So i decided to pour my whole heart through my blog here.I will answer few questions separately in other blogs but today i am covering what travel teaches me? Why i strive so badly for travel.

1.Travel makes me more alive-It may sound weird but true in my case.Doing repetitive things in routine we tend to loose appreciating those little things i.e. food, sunrise, sunset,
rain, wind, people and list will go on.When you are out in alien land you are just more aware for every single thing,let it be road or scenery around,food you taste,people you meet.You are just more receptive to take then and live that moment.

2.Travel makes me more Independent-Two contradictory things comes here.When you travel actually you have to depend on people around for many things like getting directions,getting review for best place to eat from your autowala and likewise many more. But when you cross every hurdle which suddenly comes on your way,a acute feeling comes from within that says you are far more capable for doing anything than you can think of being within safe box.Your self reliance raises.Your confidence reaches new height.

3.Travel teaches me better finance Management- Apart for saving from all "not so necessary"things to manage travel expenses,there are other lessons too comes when you travel.I am sharing one story here.In the month of October i visited araku which was blazing with protest for Samyekhya andhra. While coming back there was a complete "Bandh".We walked around 10+ km to catch your train.30+KM  we covered in shared auto(changing thrice).Auto fare was skyrising. I saw rural people there, for them extra Rs 10 hike makes travel impossible.When i came back from the trip my
respect for money increased. I started using it more wisely.Every penny counts.

4.Travel makes me compassionate-Same in Araku trip,due to bandh businesses, which are run barely on tourists were badly affected.I saw number of people lying hungry.When you see how there are different kind of problems people have and are able to make peace with it your complains seams tiny.You become more compassionate and giving.

5.Travel teaches me patience-Have you ever got annoyed standing in Que in super market or in front of trial room in mall.I did many times and i still do.I resolved that issue with ordering everything i need online including vegetables and groceries. Well but truth remains same not everything available online.When you are travel you can't do anything when your train or flight gets delayed or you missed your bus.You can't keep frowning for what happened but you have to act immediately for next possible option. That's how sick things happen in life and we keep frowning for that forever.After facing these situations many times i have grown much better to have patience in real life.Understanding and taking things normally when they go wrong. Travel taught me about those places and also showed about different facet of human life,It makes me more mature and grown while still keeping that child heart alive which can laugh madly on crankiest joke or who can dance on every single celebration.So keep travelling and celebrating the joy of life....
Happy Travel............

One Postcard From My Life-Kondaveedu Fort

Hello Everyone
How are you all?

Seems like late start for new year for me.
Well i had wonderful celebration for new year eve and next day,away from city,away from crowd,beneath open sky,in the arms of nature.Will share the detailed story soon in my next blog.
As new year started i am still in the process of decluttering and simplifying my  everyday life.
Thoughts are settling in mind for longer duration than usual.Yeah brainstorming for best ideas are going.
So for now i am sharing this postcard,which was taken from my last visit to Kondaveedu Fort.

We trekked up the hill to the lost Kondaveedu fort,located near Guntur,Andhrapradesh.
There is one thing i want to admit here,since the time i have moved to Hyderabad,the landscape of entire Deccan Plateau never fails to allure me to trek with them..I am in love with those rocky terrain.
So here is a virtual tour via this postcard......Happy New Year 2014...
