My bagfull of travel memories! #Superbloggerchallenge2018

“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” – Ibn Battuta

Once you start to travel nothing else can ever satisfy your soul. With travel comes the fondest memories. Memories of places you see, people you meet and the food you eat. As far as I can remember, I have always been travelling either with family or friends.

My earliest travel memories involve travelling in train from Khandwa to my hometown in summer vacations. As a five-year old kid, the overnight journey was intriguing. Thoughts of meeting my grandparents and playing with cousins kept me preoccupied. Those were the days of pure joy and innocence! 🙂

Another one of my favorite childhood travel memory is of my first school trip. How can I forget the thrill of travelling sans parents? It was also the first time that I had enjoyed snowfall.

Some places are etched in memories and you might like to visit them more often. For me, that place is Vivekananda Rock Memorial,Kanyakumari. I have been here many times and it’s still not enough. Watching sunrise at the beach, catching the early ferry to the memorial and returning with the sunset hues spread across the sea – a perfect day!

Each travel has added a new story in my life – some were funny and few were horrifying. The scariest travel experience was when two troublemakers kept following us on their bike in a hill station. It was late evening, me and my friend were returning back to our hotel. The troublesome duo irritated us until we shouted on them. Not one person around us had interfered to stop those boys.I realize that our safety is in our hands, still a little help from bystanders would be appreciated. Next time if you see wrong doings anywhere, then raise a voice!

I have also met wonderful people on my journeys. The cab driver in Gangtok who shared anecdotes of his life with us. The woman who was amazed when she learnt I was travelling without my husband. The uncle who had accompanied us in Kashmir tour. The latest being a lady who had helped me with my infant in air travel last month. I might not remember their names forever, but kindness is never forgotten.

My travel stories are never-ending & I am sure you would also have such travel stories.  What is your fondest travel story? Which is your favorite place to visit? Do share them with us.

    I too believe that travel adds that spunk that keeps us going. If we don’t know the world around us, how can we grow as individuals. Lovely post.


      (30th July 2018 - 00:09)

      You have perfectly summed up why I travel. 🙂

    Really loved your travel stories and in fact I found so many similarities as a woman traveler .It is so true that travel really enriches our lives like no other experience can.

    I could totally identify with many instances that you shared as a woman traveller ! Travel enriches you like nothing else .

    Delighted to read your travel memories. So sorry you had to go through the dreadful stalking but good that you could scare off the troublemakers yourself!


      (2nd September 2018 - 23:27)

      Yes, it was terrible but then thankfully nothing untoward happened. Learnt a lesson from it for future.

      (2nd September 2018 - 23:25)

      Travelers carry huge bags filled with memories and stories. Would plan to meet you whenever I visit Kanyakumari next. 🙂

    Nice post Disha! Who doesn’t love travelling? And of course, in the process of travelling, we fill our hearts with memories forever.
    One of the fondest memories is of Gujarat trip where we, a group of girls, were given a very welcoming and homely treatment in the home stay where we stayed. The owners treated us like their own girls.


      (2nd September 2018 - 23:52)

      That must have been one amazing girls vacation. Lucky find to have such wonderful hosts. 🙂


        (3rd September 2018 - 14:45)

        Yes, it was dear☺️


        (3rd September 2018 - 15:23)

    My fondest memories are of summer times when we used to go to Nani’s place for vacations.


      (2nd September 2018 - 23:48)

      Summer vacations are synonymous with visiting grandparents. I am sure it must be fun every time you visit them. 🙂


    (1st September 2018 - 23:21)

    If someone will ask my wish, I will say travelling. Travelling to far away places, which are untouched, unexplored, waiting for travellers to visit them. One of my best memories is from our Andaman trip, where we did a trek to Elephant island without a guide and were left lost. But the whole experience was so thrilling, the adrenaline rush was on the top, it was just amazing how we found our way, how we met other people on the trek who were also lost. Just amazing! Loved your writing.


      (2nd September 2018 - 23:37)

      I wish for the same! Andaman has special stories for me, I have been there twice. But, with Mr. Hubby was stuck their in cyclone for 5 days. The day we landed storm started and ended the day before we were to depart. All ferries were cancelled, could not visit any place. 🙁

      (2nd September 2018 - 23:31)

      Wow, good to know someone from Khandwa. Its not my hometown, but I had lived there as a small kid and loved the vibes of the city. 🙂

    Nothing can be a better teacher than learning while travelling and travelling to different parts of the world, seeing the way people live their life, the culture and the temperature and the terrain makes us realize how life is difficult and different. There are such tough places and people have adjusted to the weather and to those extreme conditions , that’s how we are all created by nature to adapt to different conditions of nature. Earlier travelling was not easy and was a very costly affair, today things have changed radically and we have so much options and so many things to do, it has also become affordable and life is a journey and travelling is what defines our living.


      (10th September 2018 - 20:10)

      Very true Nihar, the more we travel, the better we adapt different situations. Meeting different people adds new perspective to life. Thanks for dropping by and sharing your thoughts. 🙂

        Indeed Dishki, the idea of packaging travel as a part of itinerary to learn new things is the best way to keep travelling and placing it as a driving agenda in life…
        People and perspective go head in head, the more we meet different people, the more we appreciate the world and also the way we live life…


          (11th September 2018 - 10:26)

          True that! 🙂
