There’s been a void in my heart, an ache to travel and escape, even if it means for a while. This weekend, I got a taste of a mini-staycation to give me a break from the city and a break from life, because sometimes you have to run away from yourself…
Clichéd much? Yes. I’ve been meaning to travel this year with no ambitions, no boundaries and no pre-conceptions. I’ve been self-restricted for most of my life, trying no adventures and staying in a cocoon of comfort and honestly. boredom. For a while now, I thought I was afraid of this, afraid of that, frankly, I was just afraid to find out who I could be when I set no expectations from myself. On a journey of self-appraisal and discovery, I’m making 2015 about my travel feats and this was just the second one!
Bab Al Shams was a luxurious getaway with loads of wine-ing and dining and no-regrets. A quick stay away from the city amidst green-scapes and sand mountains, it was just the ultimate summer treat. I went away with a couple of my friends and it was beautiful to just chill-out and live a night out on town.
I’d rather not go in details as a few drunken calls to my friends do speak for themselves (sorry, not sorry). It was refreshing to walk in a view, eat fancy and wake up-to a poolside life. Here’s to many more of them, till then enjoy the photo-diary.
