“We travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us”
Traveling is as important as other “high priority” things in life. And that’s not me, that’s the word of most doctors & psychiatrists. Because traveling fills the mind with positive energies, gives a break from all daily life challenges & chores, and makes people bond with their loved ones too. For those who love to travel, you guys just need another reason to leave with your bag. And those who still haven’t made any travel plans this year, can read this blog and leave for an enjoyable journey.
