Yesterday, I received an invitation from Medium. I was wondering whether I will post again or not. And here I am!
What inspired me today, besides Medium’s excellent editor, a video. A video which mad me happy and sad at the same time. Check it here. A colleague sent it to me. The timing was bang on. I was thinking about my cancelled plan. The last trip I wanted to go for. My yearly ritual to Himalayas. Didn’t happen this year.
Somehow this video shook me from the inside. It made me realise that working your ass off will only get you money ( yes some happiness too, but temporary happiness ). Day by day, I am becoming mundane.
Maybe its a hint, maybe its not. What I do know is, I will travel more often from now on. Even if its a weekend getaway, I am going to pick up my bike and head in a direction.
Why do people tour? Especially on motorcycles?
So it’s time for my next road trip. Yay! It’s been several months since my last trip. Gosh! That was one hell of a trip. Thrilled? Hell yeah! This is much better than the weed I smoked this Friday. The only thing that is irritating me right now is the flu. I hope it gets cured before Thursday.
Coming back to the question. If you ask me, I have no f’ing clue! Though I heard it somewhere that people take up motorcycling because they lost their War of Love. Some say, cause they want to see the world. Seriously? People have their own perception about the things, I won’t be judgmental.
I do it cause, When I am on my bike, I am me. I like the smell of raw nature, that aroma which fills your lungs when you pass through a valley. Those endless roads and that sense of uncertainty.
Plus, It’s the freedom you have, you feel. No worries about work, about people. You don’t have to please anyone. You don’t have to fake your smile. You don’t have to hide!
Imagine yourself standing at the edge of a cliff 10,000 feet above sea level. You can scream your heart out and no one will question you
and, for those who couldn’t make out anything from above written text. Well, who cares!
