I wonder what should I call myself? An Escapist or a Traveller? Sometimes I make impulsive decision of escaping somewhere when I die deep into the circle of my own responsibilities. It takes less than a minute to plan for a destination, get everything booked according to the time and just rush to the place ! This is how I am. the Hills this is the word that shakes me from within. And a stroll to hills literally help me rebirth. I know it might sound totally nervy or even meaningless. . . But it gives me immense love and mental peace to go to the hills and be a wanderlust.

Escaping to a place I have never been before helps to de-stress my mind and refresh my soul. I am always a Hill person. The scenic beauty, the adventurous journey by the curved and twisted lanes of hill is what thrills me. The first thing that encounters my mind whenever I plan to go out somewhere is the ‘Hill station’. I strongly believe to listen to my inner mind and silently follow where it takes us.

“Climb the mountain not to plant your flag, but to embrace the challenge, enjoy the air and behold the view. Climb it so you can see the world, not so the world can see you.” 

David McCullough Jr

If you haven’t felt for escaping to places you have never been to, then you must have missed some great opportunities to see this world. I always make a research for that perfect gateway that could lead to a lesser known place. That means my travel story should always be as thrilling as the height of the hills, mesmerizing view of the place where I can assimilate its magnificence of nature, and rich legacy . To me strolling to the hills helps to release all the stress and calm down my soul.

It might sound weird but I avoid visiting a place that is generally crowded. I hate going to places where people stands in a queue for hours to enjoy some local sightseeing. I don’t believe walking miles and miles to witness some famous viewpoints! Rather climbing high to the hills with the enthusiastic feet, finding out the best place and enjoy the breathtaking view of the hills by standing there for hours.

“The best view comes after the hardest climb.”

Adventure in you

Now if you ask me what does an escape mean to me then i would say my ideal escape mode will always be with the person having similar interests and passion to see the unseen. I am a person who always seek to roam around the place like a Gypsy. I am more on making my travel plans to some offbeat destinations those are yet to be discovered! So having someone who puts the same effort and enthusiasm makes it more easier to enjoy every bit of the travel.

That is it for today’s post. I hope I could restart the escape mode into you all. If I did, then please leave your valuable comments below. This will motivate me more to write. Thank you!
