I love to travel, exploring new things, meeting with new people, You can call me a travel bug. Travel is my therapy.
"Travel is about the gorgeous feeling of teetering in the unknown." -Anthony Bourdain
Travelling makes you richer in many aspects of life and facilitates your growth. The more you travel, the smarter you become. It enables you to explore more about yourself and gives a new vision you look the world. When you dive into the unknown you learn something new and gain experience. Indeed, it makes you feel more alive. Travel adds more colour and adventure to your life. Every journey is a new story and every road has a story to tell. When we travel it does not mean life stops. It continues, but we live from a different perspective. It scales your vision towards life and stretches your mind with new experiences or memories.
“Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.” — Dalai Lama.
This quote encourages me to pack my bag and leave for that unknown place. Recently, I drove along the two most scenic landscapes of the world. Journey to the "Great Ocean Road," and the Milford Sound. First one is in New Zealand, Queenstown and another is in Australia,Melbourne.
Both Places are awarded the label of "world's most scenic trips. One is in Australia, Melbourne and another is in New Zealand, Queenstown. I am fortunate enough that I have had visited both places and if you asked my suggestion, it wouldn't be easy to choose one over another. Both destinations are ideal for the nature lover because wilderness is untouched and preserved. The tour will satisfy your wanderlust and heighten your awareness. Here weather can help you decide which road you should take as if you are winter lover than pick Milford Sound, Queenstown or The Great Ocean Road,Melbourne if you like mild weather.
It takes approximately 6 - 7 hours to reach both places, and every turn covers breathtaking scenery. The Milford sound is a fusion of spectacular natural beauty. The Queenstown trip would be incomplete without seeing this ethereal art and you could not afford to miss this...You will be amazed by the aesthetic art of nature. On one side, clouds hanging over the mountain peaks, on other side Sun Rays, scattering through the trees draw a phenomenal pattern on Earth.
The Great Ocean Road covers breathtaking scenery, rainforest, magnificent trees, flower, spectacular valleys, rivers, hills and so forth... It was a windy and rainy day. When we got to our destination, (The Great Ocean Road) it was still pouring. But we could not resist getting off the bus...And no need to say what happened next as our clothes were soaked and shoes full of dust. But the experience was beyond our words and we were speechless. Indeed, we were Mesmerized by the beauty of nature.
If I could travel to a new place every day, I would jump at that opportunity in a heartbeat. Sometimes, we get caught in our daily lives and forget there is the whole world full of treasures and gems. Just pack your bag and let your hair down...
"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page".
