“All roads indeed lead to Rome, but theirs also a more mystical destination, some bourne of which no traveler knows the name, some city, they all seem to hint, even more eternal.”
7 days in Bhutan!!! It was hell of a journey. Maybe in correct words it was a journey from lost to found for me. During these 7 days many times I lost myself in the beauty of nature, I lost myself completely in a bunch of the maddest people around me and every single time that I found myself, I was so happy and blessed to see ‘myself’ though as a complete stranger.
I could see all my well-kept treasures flowing away from me with the water when I was going mad under the waterfall without stopping myself as I knew it was needed. It was needed to create something different this time to amaze my heart. Trekking to tiger’s nest monastery was like walking on the paths lightened by people’s immense faith in something, and getting lost in your thoughts with your soul wandering through the valleys and hills, with birds and winds, with you being completely yours. Being at Dzong was like trying to know what it means to be religious even though you are an atheist. Walking around the unknown city was like meditation, peace with oneself, more than discovering something new it was like cherishing what you already have. Bonding with new people and like being one of them was complete joy. And when the fog hurls at you when you are going at a particular speed, but you don’t feel the pain or pressure but just a gentle touch and when you let go everything and go light with it, it feels being loved all over again. It just redefines everything inside of you with a kind of colors so unknown to you before.
And when it comes to people it was just amazing being with all the people I was with on this trip. They are funny, they are hilarious, extremely weird, maddest creatures, they are so wild at heart but at the same time they are the softest and unbelievably emotional and impossibly well-known “unknown” people I have ever been with. We laughed together, we shared, we made fun of everything and everyone around us, we ridiculed each other, we just sat together at times, we hugged each other so tightly to never let go of the impression, and we cried like anything while departing cause we just fell in love with each other uncontrollably within no amount of time. And now I dream about them, every moment I wish to be with them, to go on this trip all over again, I keep on wearing the bandana while missing someone so badly and then I feel immensely happy and blessed to have all of them. I carry them in my heart now.
