Travelling is quite the dream for each one of us. We always see traveling as a vacation from our lives. We see it as a break from our regular life. But it isn’t, traveling is the real life. Life is all about what you learn in every step and not about what you bought. It’s more of unwrapping your layers and learning who you are.

Travelling isn’t a smooth road. You will never know what will strike. Someday you will have to wait for hours just to go to a place, or your car may stop in the middle of the road, or you might have to stay in an empty stomach for long, or you may have to stay awake for long. The thing that you learn from traveling is that nothing happens the way you want it and nothing will happen when you want it to. Things will happen only when they are ready to. So when you travel you will start accepting it, you will become a patient and calm person.
You will learn that you will never get it any sooner just because you are furious and start waiting for things to calm on its own.
