Wanderlust

Wanderlust: A strong desire or impulse to travel or wander and explore the world. 

It feels so nice to get back to you after a long journey, an extended work or a hectic exam. I had been thinking to write about  it since long but always got trapped by something else.

Travelling..... what does your mind clicks when you hear this word? It is the most beautiful activity in life that introduces you to yourself. Travelling is a pure form of rebellion and I have been enjoying every bit of it. I have almost visited 50 districts out of 75 districts in Nepal.


Frankly speaking, travelling was beyond my horizon few years back. I was like a caged nightingale happy in my own way but sadly unaware of what I could experience in this life. i was wasting my life rather than living it. Until the day, when everything got changed. I got a chance to come out of my box and see, explore everything around which was virgin to me. Studying forestry has become the most correct decision  that I have ever done.

So, getting back to travelling, all these years I have turned into a traveller not a tourist. Nepal, being world's one of the smallest yet one of the most beautiful countries in the world and my homeland has provided me lots of insights, stories, surprises, queries and harsh realities that I feel so enlightened within myself.

Based on my personal experiences, I would love to share some inspiring quotes that may help you become an ardent traveller like me :)





 Travelling is actually journey to yourself.  We live in this highly competitive world that is rushing all the time. We don't have time to stop and stare what's going on. We have become so wretched and gray that we lack that love, lusture and essence of our lives.  NOT ALL THOSE WHO WANDER ARE LOST!!


Life is short and happiness is shorter. We are not getting back this valuable time and the energy that we possess. If we don't dare now, we'll never move ahead and turn to a sedentary mode forever.



We expect the grass to be greener on the other side of the hill but travelling makes us realize what it means to get back to home, family and the cozy bed you left. “Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky


I am nomad, a vagabond, a gypsy, wanderer, vagrant  that underwent through metamorphosis turning myself into a butterfly to explore and live my life to the fullest cuz:

And once the travel bug bites you, there is no any antidote that can save you. But, I would prefer not to be saved rather than living my life in a misery and abandoning myself to explore this beautiful world. 



“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
