Learning While Travelling
Travel, in the younger sort, is a part of education; in the elder, a part of experience.” ~ Francis Bacon
Travelling means different things to different people. Whether for work or pleasure travel is the one thing that ensures you move out of your comfort zone and experience a new place. For me personally I look at travel as a way of meeting new people, exploring new places and understanding varied cultures. The sights, sounds and smells of a new place are what stay with me long after I am back. On my last visit to North Goa I was quite smitten by the Calangute and Candolim beaches. Well if you are wondering how different a beach can be, think again. These famed beaches of North Goa are a delight for an ocean lover with the soft sand and gentle waves. It was also the first time that I spent a long time on the beach at dusk and it was beautiful to see the beach morph from a loud banter of water sports and people to a sort of silky darkness illuminated by the numerous shacks that dotted the shore. The ocean has its own way of calming you and taking a walk with the gentle splash of water against your legs is a feeling hard to be described. Since my little nephew loves shells I decided to pick a shell for him but to my utter wonder I saw a crab wriggling out from inside and decided to let him go back into the shell back to where he belongs. For someone who values being free I knew he loved his space too!
