Why you absolutely need to travel?

More often than not, we make plans with friends to travel to different places and see amazing things, eat, drink and explore. But then life catches up with us and plans get pushed. We get busy and forget all about the inner traveler in us, the one waiting to breathe in the air of a new picturesque location.

If you are one of those people, then let me list down just a few reasons why you should consider packing your bags, maybe calling your friends and setting out for the places you have been wanting to go to since ages!

1. Because we all deserve a break

Dhuandhar Falls, Bhedaghat, India.

On the fifth day we headed for Bhedaghat, which was 20kms from Jabalpur. Known for its Dhuandhar falls and marble rocks, this place has quite a lot to offer. I personally love waterfalls and I was pretty excited about the visit. But as we proceeded, the trip unfolded new facts for me. The place was as wonderful as it ever was. The photographs prove it.

Day 3 & Day 4 – The Evenings!

 

While the day was reserved for safaris, evenings were for explorations! We had jungle walks in the buffer area of the jungle. The core area was reserved only for safaris. But the buffer zone was open to all. There were villages and resorts in the buffer zone. The advantage of the buffer zone was that it was a part of jungle. So we had herds of deer passing through the buffer zone. Farmers often complained about destruction/consumption of crops by these herds. The villagers often saw tigers and bear! All the jungle beasts were part of the villagers’ life!

THE RESORT!!

The most crucial, integral and awaited part of any travel, especially a planned tour, is the resort or the hotel. Whether its a budget travel or a luxury one what I expect is value for money. A good resort is as essential as the good destination because you never know when you’ll turn your resort into your destination. While many people do believe that hotels are no more than a place for abeyant or unproductive activities and do not believe in investing very highly on a good Resort/Hotel; There are a Few reasons to opt for a good Resort/Hotel :

A bunch of unknown people, grouped together by Happy Journey Pvt Ltd, board the train for jabalpur!! I met everyone for the first time on kalyan station.. !! No interaction on the platform..!! Just exchange of gazes!! Weird confused gazes..!! The train arrived!! All of us were scattered in three different bogies..!! Ten minutes from boarding .. I had figured out eight of them.. Gaurav, Anup, Paresh & Pratik (the Gujju Gang) .. The Beautiful Deepti & Ruchira.. (single female travelers, just like me 😉 ).. Suraj (the wildlife photographer ) and Naveen .. (the geeky guy with silky smooth hair.. I envy his hair till date!!)

 

And the fun begins.. we throw our bags on the seats and head for the doors… we bang them open.. and cling on to the edges..
