    Travelling the world in your twenties


    Are you in your twenties but living life as if you are 60.
    Is life tough for you? Did your girl friend ditch you for a rich guy? Your boss is fuming over the latest report you submitted? Doesn't know what to do on weekends? Have no sense of direction in life? Couldn't meditate? Bored as hell with your life.

    Don't worry there is a medicine.


    "Just travel".  I said it right just travel,not a vacation in a plush hotel spending all the money you have. Just travel to a country or place you have never visited just for the sake of travelling. You never know, what's on the road.

    Then pack your bags and let off the sails,if you are crazy enough to discover how Young,Wild and Free you are.


    We would like to suggest some exotic locations that you may not find in any survey. The list is compiled by eminent travellers who listed out their favourite spots in the world.

    1)Gilgit Mountains ,Pakistan



    This could be one of the finest places if you want hike a mountain , graze the shepherd, ride in the jingle art Paksitani lorries (trucks) and may be toss a coin in to the heart shaped shimshal lake. Gilgit–Baltistan is home to five of the “eight-thousanders” and to more than fifty peaks above 7,000 meters. Gilgit and Skardu are the two main hubs for expeditions to those mountains. The region is home to some of the world’s highest mountain ranges. Amongst the highest mountains are K2 (Mount Godwin-Austen- the second biggest peak in the world) .Hunza valley and gilgit mountains are often termed as the unknown paradise on earth.

    5)Count the number of colours in Istanbul (Turkey)


    I came across beautiful Istanbul images taken by mustafaseven and hence there our love for the city grew more and better everyday. Istanbul is a shoppers paradise and you can challenge your inner colour picker, that there are more colours in the world.From cutleries to carpets to lamps your inner shoppaholic may be rejuvenated. If you don’t want a hole in your pocket, it is advised to take someone who is very good in haggling.

    7)Seek the stars that have come down to the earth in Vadhoo island,Maldives


    Is it magic? Is it real? No buddy , this is not a photoshopped image. But you will have a genuine doubt how stars have come from the sky. There a little secret has to be shared, there are no stars in the sea, the secret is phytoplanktons :). They are little culprits who makes the glorious glowing waves. Watch it with your loved one on a starry night, holding together a forever bliss.
