I always consider that travel is an art, a form of education, an Atlas of many destinations and experiences that goes hand in hand. It offers you a deeper, richer, and more fulfilling life. To many of us, travelling is a way of life, and there are dozens of reasons as to why we travel, and to me to be able to immerse in the beauty of Mother Nature, is a blessing and a reward that one could ever receive. The simplicity, delight and beauty of the natural world inspire you to dive into adventure or even take in all the sights of the astonishing wonders of the great outdoors on an escape into nature on off beaten paths, and there is a mixed bag of unlimited experiences for you out there!
Some destinations that we travel are widely popular, very touristy and we love to visit these places as it is. But a visit to under-rated turfs gives pure joy, and the rewards you receive are incomparable. Some of the best travel experiences are formed from places that have not been discovered yet, and these spots are rustic, blessed with Nature, eccentric and it leads down the trail on off beaten paths.
