Valentine : My tribute to my love – Travel
It’s that time of the year again, when love is in the air! My love is dedicated to the one thing that I am passionate about and that is traveling! So here is my tribute to my love: Travel.
I do not possess wild imaginations
that try to catch up with
love & infatuations;
Nor do I dream
of strawberry & cream.
I do not have whims & fancies
of chocolate cake & candies;
Nor can I to you express
my heart’s constant distress.
I hope not for flowers
of roses and pines;
Nor of candlelight dinner
of champagne & wine.
But just to be with you
through thick and thin;
to be always true to you
when we lose or win.
How can I tell you
about my love for you?
How can you know
my heart’s sorrow?
Please reach out to me
and try to find and see;
If I am worthy of thee
be my Valentine and Marry me!

This is a poem which I had written while I was still in school and which got published in one of the local Newspapers! I have a few poems to my name and thought that someday, I might publish my own little book of poems. Little did I know then, that I could publish my poem on my own website.
What is this about my love for travel that makes the world go round? At this point I would like to recall a recent blog post written by my Travel Blogging Mentor – Matthew Kepnes; an American travel expert, New York Times bestselling author, and blogger who mentions in his blog-post: Everyone says I’m running away.
An excerpt from the above post:
I’m not sure why, but there is this perception out there that anyone who travels long term and isn’t interested in settling down or getting a conventional job must be running away from something.
And to all those people who say that, I say to you—you’re right.
I’m running away from your idea of the “real” world.
When I read Matt’s article: Everyone says I’m running away. It suddenly all made sense to me. And I keep looking back at my recent article: The Year 2018: A Leap of Faith and can’t help smiling every time I read it. This can only happen when you are following your bliss or have found the love of your life!
Wishing all of you a very Happy Valentine’s Day!
On that note, I will take your leave, till then keep traveling and keep sharing your stories here!
