A Nomad's Diary - travel tales

Celebrating the Great World Traveller and the love for Traveling!

When Neil Armstrong first stepped on the moon, it was the breaking of a dawn for the whole world. This was a first of its kind. An instance when a team of open-minded people thought of exploring the untraversed path and that which changed the world’s outlook towards moon and Universe as a whole.

The headlines on the next day of practically every tabloid and news channels in the world had just one quote to describe the epic event:

” One small step for Man,

One Giant leap for the Mankind.”

Travel in any shapes and sizes does the same to a world traveller. It opens the mind. In fact, the giant leap from living a monotonous life behind closed doors and becoming a world traveller has an immense impact.

It makes one fall in love with the world!

When this happens a world traveller is born who has the whole world as his or her travel inspiration and then the individual is unstoppable.

Here are some of the experiences and learning points when the team ‘The Other Brain Inc.’ as a world traveller experienced the goodness of world across their multiple travel escapades.:

    Be Responsible


On a recent trip to an international destination, we met a senior journalist and a noted author of two books, Inder Raj Ahluwalia. Sharing his travel experiences and the way different travellers behave differently in a foreign setup, he commented something that was a learning for a lifetime. He gave an example of himself and tried to prove his point about responsible tourism. He said, “As a world traveller I have explored a lot many countries. Now when I visit any place and being a surd, I become a kind of brand ambassador, representing my community as a whole to the people in the foreign land. So I am always conscious that my actions should leave a positive impression about my community and so not even a single loose action happens from my side. This is so because any faulty behaviour from my end would lead to an opinion formation in the mind of unknown people about my community and which will be indelible.”

This is when we actually realized the importance of being a responsible tourist.

  • Late Night Shopping in Pattaya for Solo Woman Traveller

Source: Asia Web Direct

On hearing about Pattaya city in Thailand what the general notion about the place is that it wouldn’t be a safe place for solo woman travellers. But it will be a surprising revelation for many that Pattaya is an absolutely safe city for woman travellers. One can easily go out and shop till late night without any fear of a mishap. The only requirement here is to have an open mind and without a second thought venture out to see the general negative notion about the city being a pure misconception.

  • Getting Back to Nature

Organic Farm

There are hundreds and thousands of resorts in India and abroad. But how many of them think about getting back to nature, very few! Aahana resort in Nainital, India, has incorporated backward integration in tandem with nature. So they have cows for the supply of dairy products, organic farm for the vegetable requirement, plus some vegetation to act as a fodder for cattle. They have actually established the whole cycle of ecological balance wherein cow yield milk while their waste is turned into biogas and fertilizer. A zero percent wastage of natural components. Indeed a lovely learning!


  • Focusing on Body, Mind and Soul:


On another trip, we met a world traveller couple from London at the Indira Gandhi International Airport, who were in India for more than 2 months. They told they had indulged in Vipassana course for 45 days and earnestly appealed to us for indulging in it at an early age for complete Body, Mind and soul wellness. Coming to think of the fact, not many Indians know about Vipassana still.

Are you a world traveller? What are your reasons to travel? What makes you love the world write to us about your experience!
