Blending in…

Blending in
If you visit a new place as a tourist
Would you prefer to blend in
Such that you are almost  invisible…
Or would you be someone
Who would  prefer  to be noticed,
For your differences
And draw attention of others

Being able to blend in can often be a blessing in disguise.
As you look like you have been there and are aware of their ways of life.
You don’t stick out like a sore thumb.
Or behave as if you are out of place.
You tend to draw less attention  perhaps, but there in is your safety in new locales.
You are adaptable and accepting of  the new culture.
For some  it’s really  easy
For some  it’s truly difficult
For they are by nature noticeable
Whether they like it or not!

What is your take on this…
Have you ever tried to blend in or stand out from the crowd

How has your experiences of  traveling been so far  ? Do share.

On Respect

Respect your self

And show respect to others

In thoughts words & deeds

No matter how deserving

In empathy & compassion

It is a reflection of your nature

It speaks much of who you are.

Others will respect you.

When you respect self effort

As well as another’s

You reinforce self discipline

And let it guide manners

When you dont allow yourself

To be disrespected

None can take you for granted

Or behave as if you don’t matter.

Care to own your space in the sun.

Respectfully…

The world will be better by it.

Travel Diaries

Musings on a flight from France Amsterdam

Onwards and upwards

Here I am traveling light

With heartfelt gratitude

In the giving and receiving

Sight of fresh colors of flowers

In clothes people are wearing

Is a sea change from the mostly black monotones

Sensing summer vibes in the air.

Remembering the romance of Parisian bylines

Hope the time forward is full of hope and possibilities

Looking forward to new experiences …

Every country has a unique culture

Tuning in to the collective personas

Like tasting the wine in every sip

Travel can be a truly an immersive experience.

All it needs is a willingness to travel & adapt to the changing scenarios

And a spirit of tolerance as much as the love for freedom.

Travel Trails

Bruges’ is an absolutely fascinating fairytale kind of town,and at night, under the moonlight, it’s magical atmosphere intensifies.
A canal trip in the Reie named after the river Roya totally worth it.

Journey on


Journey on until you meet yourself

For embedded along the path

Of many echelons of time

Life leaves imprints in the living.

There will be many experiences

That makes your soul cry

Out in pain and pleasures

Of sensing connections

Beyond this lifetime.

Journey on nevertheless

For in meeting the many

Moments that seem enmeshed with you

You are closer to yourself

In the travelling along

Comes moments that seems

To speak straight to the heart

Of the truth of your being.

All turns familiar, there is deja vu

And you know the scenario only too well

For you know you have been right here.

All else is immaterial and immaculate.

You won’t need any guidance

Then as you partake the joy

Of this meeting with this being

You know you have found your self.

Mystery Rock

Life is all about balance

Of knowing and understanding

Of the uncertainties of every now

And therein lies the uniqueness

Amd uncanny the ways of existence

Life manifests in mysterious ways

Sometimes leaving us clueless

Almost impossible to decipher..

So much fodder for imagination

While the pen may wax eloquent

There is room for exploration

In the reaching beyond the knowing

Beyond the sum of our senses

And the betwixt and beyond

Imagination and curiosity

Lies the path of sharing & learning.
