Travel aspirations for new year!

New year resolutions all planned? Are all your resolutions dedicated just to your eating and living habits? Yeah? Thought so! That’s the food for your body, but what about your soul food? Ok! I get it. Lot of you are planning to depend some ME time for yourself or give an ample of time snatched from your daily routines to your yogas and meditations. But, is it enough? Enough to kill those piling up stress because of your sooo busy lifestyles and the continues struggle to manage to let those new year resolutions stay intact in the course of time!

Obviously, it ain’t enough! That’s why travelling from time to time in regular intervals is preferred to get you a better hang of your life and give your self some time to let your life and the situations connected to it get sorted better. That’s the reason I always resolve to travel atleast a little throughout the year between some gaps. Simply to get my life sorted the better way, to evolve myself as a better person able to deal better. To explore more of the charismatic universe around me. To know how the other side of the globe lives and can I adjust in the same situation too?

As a travel blogger, I always am in the struggle to find new places which I haven’t been before. Which has that charm to woo me up, the newness in it to refresh me and so much more that’s still unsaid because I haven’t been to these places before, isn’t it!

For this year, I aspire to explore more hilly ranges of Himalayas which are away hidden under the shelters of Nepal! Do you know, a great amount of unseen snow clad Himalayas comprise a beautiful destination at Nepal and is often visited only by adventurous tourists? The local tourists are yet to explore the stunning beauty here. This year, I plan to take a tour and indulge in this serene beauty of Himalayas.

I even have a wish to visit Jaisalmer, the beautiful dessert in the middle of Rajasthan that lets you feel the beauty of those dry desserts. The dessert safari, the local life out there, the historical qillas, there’s so much to explore!

Greece is another such location that attracts me towards it! Couldn’t define why, but those stories of those handsome Greek Gods have always been a keen interest for me since childhood. Those cultural richness in the infrastructure of this country is another reason for it being in my wish list. And of-course! Who wouldn’t like to adore that natural blessed beauty of this country.

Russia has been in my aspiration lists since the end of last year and I’ve resolved to visit the place in the late winters of this year. Apart from their snowy beauty, I think the fact that I’m learning their language and would love to know more about the lifestyles of the locals here makes it in my Wishlist for travel. I would definitely love to see the practical side of all my theory classes and experience a most chilled winter over here.

These are just a part of my new year aspirations which are on the top of the list! If you know me correctly, you’d definitely be knowing what kind of a greedy soul I am when it comes to travelling. There’s always a room for a quick holiday and vacation with my family even when my schedule is tightly packed and I intend to increase that quality holiday time this year! Well, that’s my new year resolution. A resolution of a travel freak and wanderlust!
