An Ordinary Ladakhi Tale | Day 10 | Back In Delhi | Rewind

How I long to be in the hills again… the city life, the 9 to 5 ordeal, is a web of complications… How I long to be with simple, uncomplicated beings… the madness, the chaos, the competition, it gives that adrenalin rush at times – to achieve things, to do the work better – I have often heard the city dwellers call it as passion…. How I long to be in the lap of nature, staring at the mountains and sipping Tea, not many souls around… A traveler tempo passes by, honking – it reminds me of the traffic in the city, the obsession with excuses and phones…. How I long to be treading unknown paths, meeting strangers, exchanging stories…. For now, the city life seems inevitable… Until next adventure… How I long to be in the hills again with all of my secrets, my scars, my sorrows…. How I long to be in the hills again…to unpack my heart…. How I long to be in the hills again… to feel nothing but ordinary…

About Trippy Travelette

A digital marketeer by profession, I was bitten by the travel bug when I was 18 years old. My Mother had gifted me an envelope that had to and fro rail tickets to Gujarat. I had studied in a boarding school in Gujarat and was more than happy thinking about the reunion with my girlfriends who were still there in Ahmedabad and Anand. I was travelling alone but being backed up both morally and financially by my mother, I was a bit relaxed. That trip was where I first experienced the urge to say, ‘I was here, I saw this and it mattered to me.” There was no looking back post this! I was falling in love with the idea of picking up the bag and leaving for the unknown! The travel experiences started becoming a reminder of human insignificance and frailty. Today, I am most particularly in love with Himachal Pradesh. The landscape, the culture and the people here have become a special part of my life. And you will see most of my travel experiences talk about the same. A complete tea addict, nothing gives me more joy than a 'pahadi chai' with some butter toast! Looking forward to exploring and exchanging awe inspiring stories. Happy Travelling!
