It took me 10 years to travel as free as a bird...

Every dog has its day, they say and I am having mine...

For past almost a month or so, I have been travelling. From mountains to sea-shore. From train to bus...It has been fabulous...

Its not that I have not traveled before, but I never felt free...

Either the travel was for a professional purpose or if it was for a leisure, there was a deadline attached to it...

I dont think that you can truly enjoy the journey, in either of the above two cases...

Now since, I can afford to break free, I really did that...Something which I wanted to do since long long time...Just break-free like a bird with no strings attached towards any destination or the limitation to stay at a place...

It took me 10 very long years to fulfill this wish of mine, yes 10 long years...And what I did in those last 10 years was absolutely bull-shit compared to what I did in these 20 odd days...

Realizations like these come as a great shock and at a very great expense, like for that matter;loss of 10 years...

Surprising isnt it...

And I truly enjoyed my journey this time, with no strings attached;no worry to return to work on a Sunday evening; no worry for a deadline looming around; with only a thought that this journey could be as long as I desire...

Yes, that this journey could be as long as I desire...And that gave me all the thrill and the happiness which I never experienced in last 10 years or even more than that...

It took a lot of balls also, as in this country, travelling alone is considered lunacy...

But then, there is no dearth of mavericks...

I am already planning two more journeys in near future...

The journey is the destination...
