Any art form, irrespective of the medium used, if it moves you, shakes you at your core then undoubtedly that piece of art is a winner. Art is something that knocks you and makes you stand face to face with the truth. Art provokes thought especially in today’s fast-paced world, where people have a proclivity of doing anything other than observing, contemplating and reflecting! Today let me tell you a tale of one such art in the form of sculptures named Old People’s Home by Chinese artists Sun Yuan and Peng Yu.
If you ask me to describe my 2017 travel moments in three words, I would choose beautiful, blissful and bountiful. Beautiful places inspired me. Blissful evenings in a beautiful place injected peace in me. Bountiful nature enriched my soul. At the end of 2017, when I look back, I can still feel waves on my feet, I can still hear the sound of leaves inside the forest, I remember the stories of people from the streets of India, I can still feel the excitement when I showed my daughter a waterfall and snow for the first time. Let me share with you some of the beautiful, blissful, and bountiful travel moments of 2017. A photo essay for you all.

I always find ways to let my daughter connect with nature to give her some extra dose of vitamin G (G stands for green). Hap Magee Ranch Park in California is a beautiful green park that I discovered on our road trip to the Lassen Volcanic National Park. It is an easy stop right off Highway 680.
A forest has a language and ecosystem of its own. Animals living there have respective rules, territories, freedom and responsibilities. It’s a different world. A forest attracts me for its wilderness. It generates a feeling of fear and excitement at the same time inside me. I feel something is going to happen abruptly; I feel the adrenaline rush in my veins. After the end of each and every safari till now, I wanted to redo it again. I simply love being a part of untouched and untamed nature. Here is a list of India’s top 4 forests to go for a wildlife safari.
