Travel plays an important part in our lives, especially for people living in urban areas. This is because urban life is filled with hustle and bustle with hardly any time left to enjoy the pleasures of nature. Also, cities are mostly concrete jungles so even though people who have free time in their hands don’t have the opportunity to come face to face with nature.
As stated by the well-known travel blogger from Kolkata, Sanjay Jhunjhunwala, CEO of the sanjayjhunjhunwala.net, this article helps you to discover the pleasures of travel so that you can enrich your life with an uplifting experience. His exquisite blogs are a storehouse of information and travel stories.
Choose Your Destination Type
The foremost thing that you need to do is to choose your destination type. Travel locations are mainly divided into three types: traditional tourist cities, mountains, and beaches. Let us now proceed to discuss them one by one.
Traditional Tourist Cities
This is the most well-known part of travel and tourism brochures. Just browse through a travel brochure and you are sure to see package tours including all the famous cities. It could be in the Golden Triangle in India with Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur or it could be a foreign location like Bangkok and Singapore.
Whatever your destination, be sure that this tour will definitely change your life. This is because you will see new places, learn about new cultures, taste new cuisines and maybe even learn new languages if you are linguistically inclined.
This shows that travel has something for everyone and everybody gets the opportunity to select from whatever he or she likes. If you go on a package tour, you will mostly be going in a group so you can have some memorable moments with the other members which will stay with you for a lifetime.
If you are visiting a religious shrine in a temple town like Puri or Benaras, then you will surely have an intense spiritual experience that will help you introspect and find solutions to the problems in your life. In this way, you will rediscover an important aspect of your life with travel with the help of traditional tourist cities.
Mountains are well appreciated by people who love traveling. Who would not like to relax in the cool, calm and serene environs of the Himalayas in summer, away from the crowds and commotion of large cities?
It has been observed that mountains are quite suitable for introverts who love to spend time alone and introspect. They generally have calm and composed nature and love to remain in silence for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.
When visiting the Himalayas or any mountain range, you can even practice meditation to engage in some soul-searching for cleansing all negative thoughts in the confines of a pristine environment. This will certainly help you in the long run as it will give you a new self-image with an elevated sense of self-confidence. It can also help extroverts who can try to balance out their bubbly and effervescent natures with a dash of stability and tranquillity.
This is how visiting the mountains can help you rediscover your life.
Beaches are another very important part of tourist spots. This is especially popular among people who love to engage in water sports like swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing, and water skiing. It has mostly been observed that people who are extroverts love to go to beaches as it suits their exploratory and fun-loving natures.
When you go to a beach, you observe different types of people all around you. Some of them will be sitting with a drink in the sand watching the waves rise and fall, others will be with their children building sand castles and the remaining will be enjoying water sports.
It’s also good if an introvert goes to a beach as the magnetic environment will make him lose all inhibitions and have a good time with the multifarious people around.
It is even better if the beach has a fort and a bustling bazaar like Marina Beach in Chennai with Burma Bazaar and St. Georges’ Fort. This will give you ample opportunity to find something novel and interesting to do after you have finished your water sports.
Learn Something New!
It becomes much easier to rediscover your life after you try to learn something new. So just decide what you want to do, just ensure that it includes a part of the local culture so that you get totally involved in it. It could be something like tasting a new street food or listening to local music or even learning to say hello in the local tongue.
This will definitely improve your level of self-confidence and will help you discover a latent facet of your personality which you earlier did not know about leading to a voyage of self-discovery.
