Sasan Gir forest has been flourishing with tourists throughout the year. Considered to be one of the hottest tourist spots in Gujarat, a lot of developments have recently taken place in this area. As Gir is one of these places close to my hometown and feels like home, I’ve never felt the need to go and explore it as a trip spot until recently.
Needless to say, writing and travelling are two completely different domains of life.
So how did I, being an educator, a traveller-land up in this? Well, this is a platform that helps me express my thoughts with you all. And as a by-product, you all might even discover some offbeat destinations, which you haven’t come across so far.
For me, travelling is something that re-energizes (well, that’s one of the firsts). Many things can add to the former list like giving a feeling of adrenaline rush, relaxation, adventure etc. As it is rightly quoted, ‘It’s not about the destination. It’s about the journey to get there.’ For some people, to travel is to find a place for doing great yoga. Well, so be it! While I was visiting some places like Kolad, Hingolgadh and Gir-it was an amazing mode of self-discovery. Over time, I let go of many fears, and have found the adventurer in me. The non-swimmer me out of a raft in Kolad, to discover that the water was 20 feet deep. And now, I feel I can just try anything and everything till I don’t feel I’m gonna die the next minute!
I hope you too discover some traits of yourself through this blog, or may be just relate to. Well, what is travel for you?
