I am a born traveler..... travelling is my passion. I unconditionally love to have my bag packed and carry in my back, walk on streets, hilly slopes. It gives me happiness, Joy and sense of fulfillment . I always suggest friends do not to waste precious time world is waiting for your... Pack your Bag.... Tighten your laces and Live your life Now.... and Ever... The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.
