Traveling has donned a new skin in recent times. The ancient travelers such as Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus and several others who have traveled their life to find a new place and discover the world would never have thought that in the 21st-century people would travel to find themselves.
No matter how materialistic bound our lives seem, once in awhile we remember that we are human and we just can’t keep up with the speed of time. We need to put brakes on our speed to revive. Our mind needs to wander in the places that have no room for flusteration. A quiet, refreshing escape.
