Feeling Restless? Take A Break!

Jun 06, 2019   •  39 views

You've had a tiring and restless week at work. Your mind is blocked. Your thought system is clogged. You've reached the next level of distraction and you have no idea how to get rid of this phase.

So, what to do now?

Good question. The answer is very simple and you've probably heard it a lot of times before. That's right. I am talking about taking a break!

Yeah, break and all sounds nice but how exactly do I do that?

Well, you can always read a book and all that minimalistic sh*t but I think, the answer this time is a mystery, the kind of mystery that can only be solved by traveling.

OOhh, travel, huh? Sounds nice? But wait, where do I go? I mean, just look at the weather, man!

Don't worry my friend, for I have got you covered. And I really mean it because I am going to suggest to you some places that are serene, quiet, that will help you get back on track and beat this heat because let's be honest, we are not Jaadu of Koi Mil Gaya and the Sooraj dada is our enemy nowadays.

I would like something adventurous! Something challenging!

Adventure enthusiast, huh?

1) Bir Billing, Himachal Pradesh

Bir Billing, the official paragliding capital of India, a village located in the state of Himachal Pradesh, is the place for you. And it is not the only adventurous activity here. From Hang gliding to Moutain biking, Camping to Trekking, this place has it all! Need something light? Travel in the toy train, hang around in Bir tea factory, take a stroll through the beautiful Tibetan colony and don't forget the Chokling Monastery.

Hmm...how about some waterfalls and views?

2) Shillong-Cherapunjee, Mawlynnong, Meghalaya

If you are an eco nut like me, then this place will be an absolute delight for you! And trust me when I say this, these places are worth a visit. I've been there myself. You'll find lakes, waterfalls, caves, hilltop views and whatnot. Yep, definitely worth it! It will leave you awestruck. Mark my words! Oh and don't forget to do stargazing at night in Cherrapunjee. The sight is beautiful!

Are all options available in Northern and/or Eastern part only?

Of course not!

3) Munnar-Thekkady, Kerela

We all know how beautiful the beaches of Kerela are. We've all heard of them. But it doesn't just end here. Munnar-Thekkady, the hill stations located in Kerela offers a wide range of places to visit. Valara Waterfalls, Pothamedu Viewpoint, rose garden, cruises, lake, dam and even elephant rides. Sound like a plan?

Okay, that's enough of mountains or hill stations. I want something more. Something different.

4) Leh Ladakh, Jammu & Kashmir

I know, I know. It's at height. It's surrounded by hills too. Well, it may be so but it is definitely different and beautiful too. We know it! We all are aware of the dreams everyone has when it comes to Leh Ladakh. All those planned bike trips! Even my mother has one. Do you have one of those dreams for yourself too? Well, then, what are you waiting for? Go, seek it! It's waiting for you.

I mean, it all sounds fancy but I want to relax around a beach? Is there any option?

5) Andaman and Nicobar Islands

Wouldn't you admit that the list was incomplete without this? Do you want beaches? We have it here. We have color options too. White sand beaches, turquoise blue water. State which one you want. The serene aura of these islands is sure to make your brain sigh and lose all the stress. Water adventure sports just work as a cherry on the top to bring back the cheery you!

I mean these all must be crowded, right? Isn't there an offbeat location that is relaxing, beautiful and you know, just kind of fit all the above categories?

Sounds too good to be true but yes, there is one location that is just the place you are looking for.

6) Pachmarhi, Madhya Pradesh

This hill station is the only one in M.P. and definitely less crowded. The second place on the list that I've been to. Although it's been a decade. Damn! I've grown old. Anyway! This place is full of natural and religious sites. You'll find many unique things here. And its serenity will work as a detox for your stressed brain.

Feel better already?

I hope this article could help you in selecting a location for yourself because you deserve a break from this chaotic world. So, what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and head out.

Adventure awaits you!

Until next time,
