The world’s most transformative travel destination
I read that in a book once written about India and the “Tales of Travel and Transformation” but its so fascinating that even though my travel partners and I had the same experiences and went on the exact same journey, our perspectives and the overall experience of the voyage were worlds apart.
I am still smitten by what I see as the essence of the experience of travel in India, India will change you, but only if you let it. It will challenge you on just about every level and broaden your horizons.
From my perspective, the Indian worldview is much more fluid and present-centered; more relationship oriented and less achievement driven; much less controlling and more accepting. I think that conflicts heavily with the western perspective and accepted beliefs, which makes it difficult and hard to understand and enjoy which results to a journey less pleasant.
I would love to hear from you, Have you traveled to a destination that changed you? Have you taken a trip with someone and had completely different points of view of the same journey? share what you think. And If you have any suggestions let me know.
