We have been blogging for one year now. The only reason we started our blog was inspiration from GMB AKASH.

We used to follow him on social media, as everyone does. We never knew he would turn out to be an inspiration for us getting into this blogging world.

He is a photographer based in Bangladesh, his passion for photography began in 1996. Now he has come a long long way of 20 years of his life as a photographer

And he achieved more than 100 international awards and have been published in more than 100 publications. He is the light who finds beauty in ugliness, strength in fragility and love in the lost.

He looks around for the untold stories…

So basically, In his child age, he never stopped following his dreams. He kept on wandering for stories around him, some of his stories were, the gay who used to dance occasionally in the lobby, girls under the red lights and colors of human emotions. His writing and photography influenced us to involve the people and the view of incredible humans from different culture and background.

He moves from place to place, cities, and countries and always tries to bring changes with his images and stories into the world, he had to Run, take a ride on the roof of train, sleep on the flooded floor and spend many hours walking through the slums.

Sometimes it was difficult for him to travel, He traveled to more than fifty countries, but most importantly he traveled through thousands of streets, which lead him to his sort of content.

He never thought of himself, he just did what he loves to do, which is Photojournalism.

He is an inspiration to many including us…

Foodie trip…

food1

As we travel, we have to make a lot of planning in finding out what to take and what not to, so, one of those packing lists is about food.

It is very difficult to travel without the essential things and gears we need and mainly Food, we like many recipes at home, but it’s not same with traveling. you have to waive off the food you like, which cannot be carried while traveling.

As you cannot take eggs with you all time traveling but you can buy it on your way.

And if …

you don’t get anything…, You can carry fruits, salads, and have sandwiches and all solid foods in your Backpack, to keep your journey fresh.

Though Traveling for food is an entirely new stream.

5 points you get when you travel.

1. You taste food that You’ve Never Tried Before.

2. A Country’s Food Tells You A Lot About Their Culture.

3. Food also helps you meet new people, conversation and make new friends. You Get to taste New Flavors and Dishes.

4. Going to new places and trying new dishes and experiencing new flavors.

5. You can have the best meal of your life by having street food. may be,

Different areas of the world have various new flavors and dishes that you would never even think of. Eating: It’s one of life’s great pleasures. And for travelers, it’s even more than that.

When you’re traveling, food isn’t just about taste and enjoyment, It’s about culture and experience. If you want to get the best food when you’re traveling, you need to know

1. look for Markets while traveling local markets is like your friend. which can buy you interesting food.

2. One important note: localites don’t always know everything and best

… 🙂

but sometimes, When you’re traveling, it’s a good idea to ask the localite for information on where and what to eat.

3. It’s okay to check out local food bloggers in your destination to get info on restaurants and markets and even sometimes offers % which will help you save some money.

As Benjamin Franklin said, “A penny saved is a penny earned?” One of the most famous Americans of his and our time. He held many titles, one of them is WORLD TRAVELER. you know what it means…

you have to taste a culture to understand it. lines by, Deborah Carter.

After all travel for food or food for travel, it starts with Travel. so, lets Pack, Travel and Eat…

Living the dream once in a lifetime …

05

If we talk about the word dream the only thing pops out from the mind is to Travel.

We travel initially, to lose ourselves, to find ourselves, to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than these newspapers publish and to see the life in a different perspective… but, later it became the daily routine of our life, we just need a thought to travel on. 

Firstly we have to make some investment as of TIME, ADJUSTMENTS, CHOICES and very fewer people say about MONEY, Yes you have to invest in some money for Traveling

We think Travel is the best way we have for filling up the beauty of places in our eyes and saving them in our inner soul-memories, Knowing the local culture by eating treats and recipes that are unique to a particular region.

Real voyage of discovery consists not in seeing new places but in seeing it with new eyes, we forget about our jobs, our classes, and all our other responsibilities. we travel to escape our routine lives and to move on to a different beat.

Travel in that sense. which guides us toward a better balance of perception and understanding — of seeing the world full of beauty.

The beauty of this whole process was best described by,

Christopher McCandless.

“don’t hesitate or allow yourself to make excuses, just get out and do it. You will be very glad that you did it”

Yet for us, the first great joy of traveling is simply the luxury of leaving all our beliefs and truths at home and seeing everything we thought we knew in a different gleam, and from a twisted angle.

So travel, at heart is just a quick way of keeping our minds mobile and awake.

we travel in large part in search of hardship — both of our own, which we want to feel, and which we need to see. 

we travel to, learn. to discover.to escape. make new friends.

  And new experience.

Experiences help to bring meaning to our lives. They truly shape and define us.

let’s backpack and wonder where the wifi is weak!!!

So tell us, what about you?

MUMBAI – The Gateway to one’s Dreams…

MUMBAI (01)

Mumbai/Bombay according to its recognition, the most popular city in India is Mumbai which is the gateway to one’s dreams. We were not too familiar with Mumbai.

On that day 28th of Jan 2018 we were very eager to hop on to the train as we planned from Pune junction, the train was ready to depart towards Mumbai which we had seen and heard in televisions, read in newspapers and published magazines. Yes, the facts about Mumbai!! As we got down the train at MUMBAI CST. (Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus)

Mumbai CST (02)

Like everyone we too rushed towards the exit of the station, the Mumbai police were doing their duty checking… We were having a bit of fear that this was the first time we had to visit Mumbai, Then we came across the Ticket Checker.

We spent some time over there… as always running Mumbai is the Heart of India. It’s full of wanderers and hardworking individuals, birds, artists, fisherfolks and millionaires, and lots and lots of people

It has India’s most rich film industry, some of Asia’s largest slums and the largest forest in a residential zone.

Mumbai city (03)

Mumbai is India’s financial powerhouse, fashion hub and a point of religious tension.

The heart of the city contains some of the ancient era-architecture on the planet but if you explore a little more you’ll unfold unique bazaars, and India’s premier restaurants, the perfect combination of rich history, this city is known to have something for everybody. So, it’s no more a surprise that Mumbai is commonly known as

‘The City of Dreams’.

gate way of India (03)

Mumbai is also known for its tourism (all throughout the year), Mumbai offers a mixture of everything. From beaches to hills, it has it all. There is also a happening nightlife and filled lifestyle. It is no more a secret!! you would know a lot about this city and what is to be given a visit.

If Mumbai is your introduction to India, prepare yourself, it is Energy…

A Friend …

A friend...

There are many relations in between humans one of them is friendship…

“FRIENDSHIP” seems pretty hard to be explained in words.

    A friend knows all of your secrets, He knows about your lifestyle when your lying and speaking the truth. He knows whether you’re seriously doing the given work or just pretending to do it. He is always with us in our ups and downs, Friend enhances the Energy to your soul.

Our parents teach us how to live life but, friends are actually the practical Description of Life

After a certain age, Some relations tend to take a backseat…but friendship starts from backseat till the end of life.

Just take a couple of minutes and recall your childhood, Recall all the memories you have with your friends. 

It’s really true_Life is beautiful with friends…

A Deep Admiration of friendship from team travel exploring.

Father keeps quiet, he never talks to you about anything, Everyone has feelings for Mother but, fewer feelings for Father

“It’s very easy to be a dad but it’s difficult to be a papa”

Father plans for the future, he has feelings for the family, he cares for the family, thinks about each and every one in the family. This is the Gift to the father.

When I was traveling from Mumbai to Pune in first-class Deccan Queen, my Attire was simple as usual.

     Some students were sitting in front of me, They were making fun of me, They were not knowing that I am Educated from Boston, London. After some time I called to steward and ordered some snack, I communicated with him in English as soon as after seeing and listening to me communicating in English they were shocked that my English was more fluent than their English, they came and accepted their mistake and were guilty. When I told them that ‘remember English is a language not a knowledge’ and stop taking money from your parents for your education

   ‘Earn and Learn’. After one month those students came to my place with their self-earned cars.

  I was taking care of my mother even she was in bed for 11 years. My mother once expressed her wish of eating mangoes, in the month of December. I visited many places many fruit dealers only for that one fruit, Finally after a week of searching. I Found Mangoes at the cost of 3000 RS a dozen .the dealer asked me why are you buying this non-seasonal fruit within a second I replied that “My mother wished to eat mangoes.” As soon as I replied him he offered me to take the mangoes free of cost. But I refused to take it free of cost and I paid him the cost of 1100Rs.

My father passed in the war (Indo-Pakistan War)of 1971. I found my father’s cadaver after 1 month.

 My father never earned money for us, he taught us a lesson, and he also told us to be self-dependent and learn the lessons of life all by ourselves. His teachings actually taught us how one should live his/her life.

  If you really want to do something for your father, do it now, do it every day, do it whenever you get a chance, stand beside your father in his hard times. Age doesn’t matter, ask him his problems. Try to keep him happy. If you do this much you will feel the crystal pleasure.

 By the way… All the people here in this ashram are dead, they are only Alive because they are breathing. No one is happy here they just pretend to be happy. there are many serious reasons, for these people are living in this ashram.

Father’s and mother’s days are only emotions be practical with your parents I will say one thing “Don’t forget your parents”.

If you speak sweetly, you can overcome each and every problem you will face.  After now I am going to the Himalayas.

Truth…

Truth...

Keep traveling… Keep exploring…  

 On the way traveling and exploring, we saw this uncle with an Amazing beard with blue shades and unique Dressing style. Simple dressing with Maharashtrian cap, a bag full of Useful and recyclable things. Really he looks very Dashing in this picture, but the real truth and fact behind his looks is a serious truth issue. Rather saying it Black fact of India.
           According to the black fact, Children’s feel a Burden of taking care of their own parents when they Enter into their old age. These same parents did not think of the problems they were going to face while growing up their children.
Same is the case with this uncle.  
Ask yourself some questions, have you ever thought about, what should these old parents do? Where should they go and live? What should they eat?
These parents would never have thought about the work they have started doing, after such cruel behavior of their children.
          So, In present this uncle goes collecting things that are recyclable and some which he can use for himself, from garbage and dumping ground, selling some of the scrap material to the scrap centers to fill up his stomach…                                                                                Age: 66
