Kopfkino! when you imagine scenarios about something in your mind literally, like a head cinema!
For as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with the idea of traveling to different places and eating different cuisines. I was that person who was always daydreaming about going to foreign lands and experiencing their culture & hogging on their food. I always thought that these things are just my hobbies and I’m doing them once in a while just for a little fun. I could not understand my strong desire and yearning to travel far off places. Little did I know that this was my passion.
And then there came a moment in my life when I started to fear that time is running out of my hands to achieve my goals. It took me around 5 years to realize that. Like most people, I also went on a trip once a year and thought I was happy about it but as I grew up I realized that this is not just my hobby but something that I wanted to keep doing. I do not want to use traveling as my escape but I want to make it my reality. That’s what I want to be known for. I have not been everywhere or anywhere for that matter but it’s on my list. I want to build a life that I don’t want an escape from.
I am glad that I finally summoned my courage to start my journey and this blog that I have been thinking of starting from 2 years now but I have never been more confused in my life. Because, for a person who has never been away from home for more than 4 days once a year, doing it more than often is a scary thought and that too on her own. I have a million questions that no one can give me answers to and a million worries like isn’t traveling madly expensive? I don’t belong to a rich family, and there’s no one funding my adventures, but I know for one that this is my priority now, so my first step would be to increase my savings and cut back on anything that is not important or exactly necessary to me. And also for a girl living in India, isn’t getting permission to choose her career and follow her dreams difficult?
If you have made it so far then you might be thinking that why is she telling us this? she can just start doing her job and tell us about it, but there was no better way of telling you all about me than this. There’s a new saying floating in the air these days and it says that “life isn’t about finding yourself but creating yourself” and I believe in that saying with all my heart. I want to create myself and I want to help you do the same by taking you along with me on this journey through this blog.
So, long story short, I am a person who would love to – travel the whole world, try every cuisine there is and read every last book on the shelves of this planet, because isn’t traveling, eating & reading the best ways to feel alive?
