⁣Into the Wild ✨⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣A few months ago, my friend Stephanie and I traveled through the desert together on my way from Austin to Santa Fe. At the end of the trip, she handed me a gift - a copy of the book Into the Wild. She said there were lessons to be learned in there.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Into the Wild is the story of Chris McCandless, a young man who leaves traditional life behind to travel the country on his own. He disconnects from his family, society, and his possessions to experience the joy, pain, and thrill of life on the road. And ultimately, he dies alone in a hollowed out school bus deep in the wilderness of Alaska.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣While an incredibly thoughtful gift, I wondered what was the lesson my friend wanted me to learn? Don’t go to Alaska? Keep your ego in check? Avoid busses? ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Toward the end of the story, I believe I found the lesson. McCandless, who survived solely on his own instincts, intuition, and devotion to traveling the world alone, suddenly found himself dying in the wilderness. He knew he had reached the end. And within his journal, he wrote his final words:⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Happiness only real when shared.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Traveling the world is exciting and allows me to experience so many wonderful things. But spending so much time alone is hard. Settling into Utah has been uplifting. Yet, despite being welcomed with open arms at my gym and my two favorite restaurants, I still find myself alone more often not - experiencing the journey by myself. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Going on adventures and having new experiences are things I love more than anything in life. But true happiness is sharing those experiences with others.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣While times likes these are tough, I know they won’t last forever. As the world continues to open, I will again find my tribe again. It’s only a matter of time.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣But until then, I‘m grateful to each of you for taking this journey along with me. No matter where I roam, or how lonely it can be sometimes, it feels good to know you are there enjoying the journey alongside me. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Happiness is only real when shared, and I am glad to share this journey with you.

Convert room corners to quiet cozy study areas. Wood, window, light, makes this corner a place you’d always want to sit and work at. #beautifulhomes #travelandliving #beautifulhomesofinstagram #lifestyle #lifestyleguide #homedecor #decor #interiordesign #interior #study #office #homeoffice #quarantine #inspired #inspiration #workfromhome #quiteplaces #happyspace

Lisboa: the land of red tiled roofs, cobbled streets and handsome men! You see them almost everywhere you go, alongwith the harmless kids who try to peddle you drugs till you shoo them away! This trip was special as I did it with a dear friend soon after facing the biggest losses in my life. But I came back with the happiest memories of a city so vibrant, so full of arts and culture and a visual delight in every way. The colourful pastel architecture, the winding streets, the interesting graffiti on the walls and the mesmerising Fado music all go towards making this city the wonder that it is. The best way to explore Lisboa is by walking and walk we did!! Dotted with cafes selling the famous custard tarts and shops carrying a variety of ceramics ranging from antique to new, one can spend hours browsing and discovering nooks and crannies of this wonderful city. Lisboa is also full of churches at every corner. Each one with a history of its own and a story to tell. Walking down the upscale Chiado area, a neighbourhood known for its historic landmarks and luxury shopping and exploring Baixa, Lisbon has a lot to see and explore including the Castle of Sao Jorge and a trek up to the Sao Pedro de Alcântara to see a panoramic view of the city. A day trip to both Caiscais, a charming Portuguese fishing town and now a popular resort destination and Sintra known for its historic palaces and castles is well in order. I loved my night visit to the Time Out Market with its variety of food stalls located inside the historic Mercado da Ribeira built in the 1890’s. Lisboa, my 4 days there didn’t do you justice. I need to go back sometime soon. And I have to make a special mention of my dearest friend @aparigrahalife who made this possible and our most handsome and gracious host @pedrobesugo without whom we would not have experienced Lisboa the local way! #throwbackholidayseries #holidaythrowbackseries #lisbonholiday #travelstoryteller

Lockdown has made me look through all the photographs taken on all my earlier holidays. What a lovely nostalgic feeling it gives. India itself has so many beautiful and scenic locations tugged away in the remote areas. One such location is Medikeri in Cooorg. A beautiful haven of greenery and surrounded by mountains and paddy fields this place gives you a feel of nature itself. Again the property oh Clubmahindra here is amazing. #tripadvisor #travelphotography #travelblogger #travelandleisureindia #travelhotelsmiles #travelandliving #jheelstravel #travellerstories #travellerstyle #travelgirlstravel #girlstravellingtheworld #coorg #coorgdiaries #medikeri #karnatakatourism @travelhotelsmiles @travelandleisureindia @travelbloggeres @travel_food_marks @clubmahindra @club.mahindra

Panoramic photographs from the ferry jetty on the island side overlooking Old Goa. Ferry boats are iconic to the islands, carrying passengers, bikes , cars , buses and trucks across the Mandovi. As monsoon approaches the water level rises enough to submerge the ferry jetty. A Barge intersecting the path of the ferries is a common site. - May 2020 . . . . . . . #thedivarislandproject #theriverislandsproject #nature , #travel #ruzzfeed #homestay #tripfortwo #travelandliving #kuks #shotononeplus #welivetoexplore #india #livingonanisland #riverislandsgoa #islandlife / #goa // #ilhasdoriogoa #traveltailor #ferry #barge
