Welcome to my world – Travel Bliss. I am Maria Lewis and am really proud and excited that I have finally taken the plunge, to bring to you my travel stories, to share with you, what truly makes me blissful and happy and that is travelling and exploring the world.
Since I was a young, a school student..I would cut the news articles / have clippings of all the various travel destinations that would be featured there and I would read them, cut them and file them to read later at leisure. I always wanted to travel the world, but I was constrained, as my parents hardly travelled within India, let alone the world!!!! I never knew how I would do it..but I knew that I would set out to see the world on my own or with friends. And that’s exactly what I am attempting to do now…am following my bliss.
Someone once said..Travelling is almost like Food for my eyes and I truly and completely agree with it. I have got the Wanderlust within me to explore new places, to meet people from various walks of lives, to taste the various cuisines of the world etc. Travelling opens up new avenues for me..it is a path of self discovery for me.
It was only a few years ago, that I was able to make my passport (with a lot of difficulty) and that document has truly been my passport to seeing the world!!!! And 2 years ago, when I was reading the book – The Hero by Rhonda Byrne..I was struck by one chapter in it.. which says “Follow your Bliss”.
If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in your field of bliss, and they open doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”
— Joseph Campbell.
And that’s exactly what I am doing now..following my bliss (which also happens to be the tagline for my website). And truly and surely, ever since I started taking my baby steps to travel..I don’t know from where doors would open..opportunities would come my way, friends with similar interests came my way..who all helped me in this beautiful quest of mine..
If following your bliss is an idea that resonates with you, then I urge you to look deep down within your heart and find out what is YOUR bliss..find out what is that one thing that truly makes you HAPPY and go follow your dream..
So come with me friends..and follow me on my travels..explore the world with me..If you have any queries, send me an email and I would be most glad to answer your queries.
