Around this time last year, I was chilling in Goa. Every time the hobo thinks about the trip, she gets nostalgic!
Goa, like I always say is a state of mind. There are times when I am working from my laptop but my mind is in Goa. The slow and laid back life is what I yearn for.
Being at the beach has been rewarding and enriching for me. I have gained inspiration from the waves, have learnt to never give up and to go with flow.
In another experiential travel trip, I disconnected from the world and lived without technology for five days without a phone, laptop, internet or a camera. This was my own black-hole resort. This time, I was one with myself. Living without technology was like vipassana for the mind.
You know that feeling when you want to seek solace, just be at a place and not do anything at all?! So YOU do know what I am talking about.
I have never spoken about the top 10 things to do in a place or do not believe in making a list of places I want to see on this blog. Know why?
It is simply because no travel or destination can quantify the experiences that you embark on the go. Personally, those kind of pointers are great from a research point of view. You will surely know what to expect from a destination.
However, every once in a while, leave that list behind and experience stillness. Travel without a plan and I can vouch that you will be surprised by what you encounter, experience and embark.
You DO NOT have to travel for a fortnight or months to experience that stillness. Sometimes, the two days are enough.
HOW to experience stillness? Or HOW to go without a plan? I would only say- Trust yourself , your journey and listen to the voice inside you!
YOU dear fellow traveler, will get the answer.
