“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.“
I am thirty plus now! May be I would live for ten more years, or twenty more or just a day other than this one! The world that lays it’s arms open for me would close someday and I’ll silently be amongst the thousands of them, who never stepped out to explore it! Thus, I set off, I set off on a journey that was still unknown to me, I date with time, a date with world, a blind date!
For days I travelled, explored and experienced! This world was insane! Each new corner says a different story, each new valley has a mystery attached to it! Those very mountains standing with pride over the stretch of land has so much to offer other than shades. Those wide stretch milky oceans has a depth of lakhs and mysteries worth crores! The greens that surround the nature so widely have an aura of unknowing spirits in them.
So, off I went, to explore the world, my blind date henceforth. The beauty of the world is vast, so are it’s mysteries! I wanted to solve those mysteries since ages. Hence, when the world allowed me a blind date, I asked if I could explore those mysterious places in it, if I could try my level of efforts to solve those mysteries. If only I could have the key to the questions those destinations left on the minds of the people, if only I could visit there and get a first hand experience of how these mysteries have survived to be still a question even after centuries.
My date with lake Natron, the petrifying lake, Tanzania was to know how the natural resources have got the power to create the incredible statues of each animal or living things that died in it.
When unnerved this, I headed straight to India, to the Roopkaland skeleton lake to solve the mystery of the those skeletons that have been part of this lake since years and are still preserved in their basic forms.
From there I went to watch the panorama of the colourful Vinicunka rainbow mountains at Peru and indulge in a breathtaking experience of watching the colours create a charisma on a mountain.
The blood falls of Antarctica was my next destination. I was super curious to know how in a chilling climate of Antarctica can water falling from a cliff can bleed?
I slowly opened my eyes. I had been in a state of slumber for hours. Hence, dreamt of going on a blind date with the world during this hour. Credit to the recent post by Indiblogger giving me high end ideas on the same! But, what if the wish comes true, what if I was really on a trail of a blind date with those unexplored mysterious places?
There was more to explore, to unwind and to find around the globe. I’ll de hitting almost all of them. It’s an exaggeration, but what doesn’t happen when you wish sincerely! My thirst for exploring could never satisfy. Going on with a bucket list to planned destinations is good, but unveiling secret and never before destinations is great! After all, “It is not down in any map; true places never are.” – Herman Melville. Hence, #TheBlindDate with the world is going to be charismatic, captivating and hmmm…. you can guess what….!!
