My Travel Odyssey...............“Not all those who wander are lost.”

Traveling has become an integral part of my life. It’s like having a temporary existence. After every three months we pack our bags either for sailing or  parent’s house or for vacation.
Living like a nomad has its own pros & cons. I don’t remember the last time we actually stayed for a while in one place with the family and did all the normal dos and errands of the house. Attending social gatherings or celebrating festivals have become seasonal for us. Friends and close ones have just turned into acquaintances now. 
But in your heart you know it’s a transitory period .Sooner or later things will change and you will going to feel the nostalgic feeling of packing,action, the hullabaloo of your nomadic expeditions.
Today when I look back, to all the places and countries I visited, it still gives me that thrill shrills. You inclined to learn about diverse cultures, ethnicity, weather, people, food, etiquette's which you only had read in your geography books.

My brief overviews about the places i traveled..

SCOTLAND (U.K) – Lived there for about almost two years. People are truly warm and supportive .Made so many good friends and memories to treasure in my work place. Green fields, striking yellow rapeseed fields, pretty houses, flowering trees, and haphazard allotments & not to forget the serene Thames river .Apart from that visited many significant places, forts, isles, castles, museums& highlands. In fact the best iconic thing I truly admired was the Scottish traditional gear: The Kilt”
But as being a sunny person myself in & out, I could not able to cope with the extreme Scottish weather. Rapid winds, non stop drizzles, and gloomy evenings had really worn me out and made my stay unbearable.
Still all in all, it surly had left quite an impression on my soul.

SINGAPOREThe only word I can pick to portray this god sends country is “Spectacular”. Amazing infrastructure, beautiful houses, state of the art buildings, ultra stylish people, diversity in food, the whole thing has made this small heart country a hub for tourism. Have been here thrice but still wanted to come yet again.

THAILAND-(PATAYA) - Sun Sand & Tan, best three pickers to describe. Oh am such a beachy person (not bitchy mind you).Won’t mind spending my entire life on the seashore in a cove. Love all the water sports, snorkeling, para sailing, banana rides and yeah the shooting too. Tried my hand on 9mm for the first time, can’t tell you what a feeling it was. Even went to the well known gem factory n got my hands on some of the precious delicate jewels.

Need to moor my blog now. Shall continue my blabbing in my next writing.Till then..
