I’m always ready to travel

That’s no secret, I love to travel. But who doesn’t? I’m sure most of the people love traveling. And by traveling I don’t mean visiting the next town or going to the fair maybe 100 kilometres away, but taking a city break or a vacation at the beach on an island in the Atlantic, be it on the European side or in the Caribbeans. Eh, well, there are some people who don’t like traveling. Or, to be more precise, they hate the idea of traveling. Mostly because they can’t afford it because of financial difficulties. When you know you don’t have the money to travel you get to ignore people around you leaving for holidays, you get to think traveling is not for you.

Several people asked me why I wasted money on joining a center when I could have asked my parents or friends to help me, free of cost. I can safely say that I can answer this question adequately now. Firstly, when you join a driving center, you have to follow a strict routine and set timings. I had to wake up at 7 each morning and knew if I did not do so, I would miss the lesson since the instructor was very clear that he would not compensate for a missed day or for tardiness. Had my father been teaching me, I would probably have convinced him to...
Why having depression makes me want to travel more

Why having depression makes me want to travel more

There’s no way of denying the fact that each one of us goes through the low phases of life, and often struggle hard to overcome them. While for some, it’s a moderate situation with on & off phases of sadness, guilt, lack of confidence etc., for others, it’s more grave, leading to chronic depression where one can’t concentrate in anything, keeps being lost or constantly ponders of past mistakes, trying to find out answers to questions which have no sense! ‘Depression’ is a sort of mental illness that was regarded as a taboo till the last couple of decades when people would keep themselves in a box, and never talk about things that bother them to a great extent. But with the change in time, the trend has changed and now, the remedy for ‘depression’ is to talk rather than to sulk. By talking, I don’t mean verbal conversation all the time, but it can be any mode of expression. One can seek help from colors and a paintbrush, to pour...
