ENJOY YOUR JOURNEY – CEE’S WHICH WAY PHOTO CHALLENGE – NOVEMBER 30, 2016

To begin with let me start with this wonderful quote by Swami Vivekananda:

Pay as much attention to the means of work as to its end.

– Swami Vivekananda 

In other words we are so focused to reach our destination or achieve our goal or target of life that we tend to forget the way we lead to it – the journey. The goal or target has a big mental projection on our minds which diverts our focus from the journey.

My entry for CWW this week is the roads surrounded with trees leading to the hills.

Enjoy the minute details of lovely journey as you pass through trees, lochs and hills and in life enjoy the little packs of happiness while you are busy chasing your target. The destination or the target of the journey can only be enjoyed most when you had a memorable journey too. So pay details to your journey as it will help help you reach your destination, if the journey is good the destination ought to be achieved.

Thanks for reading by and wishing you have a wonderful journey in your life.

Loads of kisses and a BIG HUG 🙂

THIS IS MY ENTRY FOR CWWPC NOV 30, EVERY WEDNESDAY THIS CHALLENGE IS ROLLED OUT BY CEE NEUNER AND YOU CAN SHARE YOUR RENDITION OF A WAY – ROADS, PATHS, TRAILS…..

Destination Anywhere!!!

Where is the one place you would never want to go on vacation that other people seem to love?

I will start this post with one of my favorite Jon Bon Jovi numbers “Destination Anywhere“, it came rocking to my mind with this prompt.

Darlin’, I’m tired of living just in your dreams ,I’m getting out
You know we both sold our souls,We’re just growing old in this sleepy, dead-end town.

Destination Anywhere!!! Name a place and I ‘ll be there, pack your bags and we disappear.

Vacations are meant to provide:

  1. A Break from daily chores, per se from office, kids from school and home.
  2. A time to connect with family and friends.

This in turn helps us gives us a fresh lease of life.

What destinations to choose:

1-In Nature’s Lap

I choose any destination stop as my vacation which is surrounded by natural beauty. I like to explore more towards the gift of God and delicacies nature has provided to us and spend time exploring them instead of going for exploring the most happening cities.

2-Cultural Diversity

Another interesting factor is to explore the diverse culture this world offers us. Every place, country,city has its own religion, food, culture, people, they have so much to offer. It is a wonder to get to know more about them. When I was in Japan I was fortunate to be there during the Golden Week, a week in which the country celebrates, it is their longest vacation period. I made the most of it by visiting the world heritage sites at Nikko, Lake Chuzenji, Kegon Falls and Yomoto Onsen(natural spa); exploring their cultures and closely watching some religious ceremonies and processions. I was very impressed by it.

I love to get surrounded by the serenity and beauty of the snow filled mountains, sitting by the river, lake or ocean, exploring the wild, watching the sunrise and sunset in the ocean, streaming in the backwaters.The Alps, Himalayas, The Andes to the Rocky mountains to Leh Ladakh all come under the list of places to visit. I would like to give them a priority followed by visiting the man made wonders from historic times to the sci fi ones.

Very few people are aware about the Tokyo Tower and that it is taller than the Eiffel Tower.

A place which would never come under my radar – Huh, I think the thought of a desert scares me, the tough life, hot sand winds, I would be reluctant to be there – it is better to leave it to Bear Grylls and let him do it for us.
