The above video shows a bunch of people across the world sharing their thoughts that why do they love the world. This video has inspired me to share why do I love the world and my most cherished discoveries and travel experiences.
I am an avid traveller who dreams to be a world traveller one day. The idea of loving the world excites me as I love to visit different places, want to meet different peoples, know about their cultures and cuisines, learn about their history and enjoy those moments being with them and cherish those memories throughout the lifetime. My travel journey started at very early age with my parents and sister. My father loves to travel and those days we travelled various places in India. He always encouraged me to write the travel stories and gradually, he have sown the seeds of travelling in me. I can say I got the travel inspiration from my father.
As I grew older, I was more interested to know the people around the world. Travelling around the world gives us an opportunity to know other countries, their disciplines, about their climate condition and their survival stories. The most interesting part of the travel is it makes us open-minded and increases the circle of our knowledge.
My life-partner is also an adventure loving person so there was no full stop in my travel journey. Each trip we made memorable, be it a short or long. The way my father showed the path of enjoyment being a traveller, we as a parent also sowing the seed of travelling by making her part of our travel journey.
In 2016, opportunity knocked our door and we packed our bag to experience our first ever world travel. We visited San Francisco and Los Angeles. Los Angeles was included in our travel schedule as per the request of our Junior Traveller. She wanted to meet her favourite cartoon characters and their world. Yes I am talking about our visit to Dreamland Disneyland. We never thought that in our first ever World trip we could visualize the dream come true moment! Thanks to our Junior for choosing the destination so wisely. Who doesn’t want to live in a dream world? We have already experienced it and going to cherish it throughout our life.
We travelled from one Silicon valley (Bangalore) to the another Silicon valley (San Francisco). When we first got down from flight and walking out from the Airport, first thing we realized that the people residing in United States of America are very much disciplined. It became more prominent after observing the traffic rules during our stay. I really loved it. One day we were travelling through a high way which was packed however, we could not hear a single blow of horn! Can you imagine? That means we can ride slowly and patiently in a heavy traffic jam too without doing air pollution.

Anyplace we travel, we make sure to try out the popular food of that place. In San Francisco, we got exposure to varieties of cuisine other than American cuisine as it is home for many different nationals. Pier 39 is a must visit for every foodie especially the seafood lovers. I experienced my first crab tasting with a giant crab. The taste of butter garlic crab salivates me whenever I think about it. Apart from that memorable crab meal, we tasted middle-east platters, authentic Italian, Mexican and Chinese cuisine at various restaurants. I totally enjoyed the American style breakfast.
The landscapes are beautiful and could not stop clicking the shutter. I closely experienced the geography and demography of that place. I experienced the ice cold water of Pacific ocean and also saw the wild fire while travelling towards Yosemiti.

Visit to Los Angeles especially to Disneyland was remarkable. Our daughter met her favourite cartoon characters (Mickey & Minnie). Even we went back to our childhood with all the Disney characters. We all were on cloud nine and enjoyed the visit to the fullest.
It was a fun-filled, adventurous trip and we returned back to India with lot of unforgettable sweet memories.

Finally, we returned back to India with lots of experiences, incidents and happy memories which we often cherish in our leisure. So I would obviously respond affirmative #SayYesToTheWorld. Loving the world opens up the closed door of minds and provides wonderful opportunity to know different people and their lives.
