Travelling is more than just backpacking and sightseeing. There is something deeper about it. It is about embracing. In July 2013, I escaped my busy life to follow my passion. I traveled to the Great Rift Valley – a piece of paradise that appears to be undisturbed for ages.
The valleys were nicely garlanded with colors and lights. The white clouds were dancing at the summit of the hills. I could not take my eyes off from the landscape – mountains, flowers, greenery and lakes. It took me only minutes to grow in love with the irresistible scenery of the Great Rift Valley.
As I walked closer to the valleys, I traveled to the pages of my past and recollected a lesson learned – life is all about choices. I then chose not just to collect snaps but to collect stories few will have to share. I closed my eyes and extended my arms to embrace the majesty of the Great Rift Valley. I could feel the balance with everything around me and within me. I stood still for some minutes and in the echoes of my mind, I paid attention to my thoughts. I was conscious. I felt being alive. Nothing could have been better.
I made a promise to the Great Rift Valley too. I will not reveal the promise at this point in time though.
