Traveling changes your perception of life, brings you new ideas, new thoughts. It introduces you to a different world altogether.
Someone has aptly said that the world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page. Travelling is not just about visiting new places and seeing their famous attractions, it has much more to it. It is about getting soaked in new culture; it is about exploring unexplored places, it about stepping out of your comfort zone and knowing new people.
Travelling changes your perception of life, brings you new ideas, new thoughts. It introduces you to a different world altogether and the learning is endless. In fact, it gives you kicks when you count how many countries or places you have traveled to and what all places you wish to travel.
Let’s hear from some people what they have to say when it comes to travelling :
Jyoti Malik - Entrepreneur
Countries visited - 15
Favourite countries - India, Australia, Spain
What travelling means to me: Travelling is the most rejuvenation thing in the world. When I am stressed I feel like travelling, when I am getting bored I feel like travelling, when my kids have holidays I feel like travelling, when there is some special occasion I feel like travelling.
Most memorable travel experience : I travelled to Melbourne, Australia this year and came back mesmerized to the hilt. It is a magical city. Initially I was hesitant in interacting with the people there but I ended up making a great friend there. I was looking for some local street food and this lady named Angelina who I met at a coffee shop helped me big time. I strolled through its tree-flanked streets, gardens, ate amazing dishes at wonderful rooftop restaurants treated my eyes with marvellous Victorian architecture. I am an art lover and watching brilliant art displayed on the streets throughout the city made me fall in love with it. I came back with a feeling about Melbourne “Home away from home.”

Most memorable travel experience : I went to Austria with my friends. This mesmerizing country looks small on the world map but its surprises are huge! One day we were meandering through amazing valleys enjoying mountains, glaciers, flower meadows and sparkling lakes and the other we were enjoying cakes and coffee at the amazing coffee houses. Each day came with its own surprises and charm. I felt there is so much to experience in this world and travelling is the best way to do so.
