Travel Diary — Day 3, Photo 2

Respond to the natural world — and you will never feel lonely.

At Devsi Bugiyal

We were happy to take a path. Any path that would lead us to a place to surrender ourselves. Devsi Bugiyal does not have a grand view; no snow-capped peaks in touchable distance, not a perfect destination for tourists looking to “find” something scenic and click to post on Instagram. But that was perfect for us — the serenity around gave us company. And an hour of silent meditation validated what Rusty wrote in a Book of Simple Living — “the pleasure of travel is in the journey, and not so much in reaching one’s destination”.
