Sat Sri Akal!
I welcome you all to this terrific third episode of ‘It’s over at Hargun’s!’ OAH started as an idea I had in my initial days at wordpress, when I used to be amazed and inspired by the works of my talented and very creative fellow bloggers. I would have loved to meet them in flesh and blood, but since that was not possible- I thought why not call them over at my blog and get to know them more! Since then there’s no looking back and here I am with my ‘photogenic’ third episode. As I disclosed in my previous ‘pulling up the covers’ post, today’s guest blogger likes to roam and take us to those marvelous places at the comfort of our homes, just like his tag line- ‘Let’s Go for a Photo Walk!’.
If you haven’t guessed it still- them let me unravel the mystery. Its none other than Mr. Jithin S. aka TraBlogger with a lovely photoblog titled PhoTrablogger.
Jithin hails from Kerala, an incredible state known as god’s own country.
A self learned photographer, he loves to travel and share those travel stories with us through his photographs. He has recently authored a book titled ‘Journey is My Path’ which is releasing this September. He also loves to collect Bucket lists, aspiring to make it into one of the biggest of its kind. Interesting, isn’t it? And yes, I totally forgot about his Canon EOS 1100 which he says is his most prized possession; his loyal companion on all journeys 😉
I Think that should be an ample introduction ,now let’s get on with the chit-chat!
Hi Mr Jithin! I welcome you at Living The Dream. I really marvel at how you have had a chance to appreciate many great and some of those little known places of our incredible India like the serene Kundadri hills. In your view, how is India like at heart? Do you feel there is any common thread which runs in all these places?
I haven’t even travelled half of India. But I can tell that India is amazingly vibrant and definitely diverse. Each an every state in India has so much to offer. There are thousands of less explored, less touristy places worth visiting all over India. The most interesting thing is the changes one feels when travelling from one place to another. Language and landscape, clothes and cultures, weather and vegetation, almost everything changes from place to place. But still its all part of India and we all are Indians. Once you travel across India, you will understand how amazing this country is and what some of the medias are projecting about India is not entirely true.
Yes, I have to agree with that. Media can project a thing in a way which is different from what is inside. Moreover, I too think exploring a different culture and environment in one’s own homeland is quite amazing. And when I think of travelling, I can never forget the incident when a monkey came out of nowhere, snatched my aunt’s handbag and ran off at a amazing speed, leading to rib tickling race to catch the mischievous monkey and get the precious handbag back ;P
I think in all your adventures,You too must have experienced some moments you can never forget – some fun filled , hilarious or spine chilling memories which makes traveling all the more beautiful and exciting . Tell us more about them.
If you ask any traveler, what was the most amazing experience felt while travelling, most of them would reply. It was the kindness offered to them by some random strangers. So there were many occasions I was at the receiving end of random acts of kindness by strangers while travelling. Those experiences felt amazing. Once a guy hosted me at his place and trusted me with the house key. Those kind of kindness during travelling will always be in my mind. There are other interesting travel memories too. Some of them have found a place in my book with a tinge of fiction to it. Read More
