Show Off your Travel Tattoos !!!

People travel, people collect mementos around the world, then there are a few who etch their memories on their body and remain attached to it for Life. For every traveler, each trip they take is a special memory but some trips and experiences sink in too much that you feel the need to have that memory preserved forever. So what are you gonna do?

Ibn-E-Battuta – The Man behind Travel Writing

Ibn-E-Battuta – The Man behind Travel Writing

If you have seen the above quote before, then you need to know about the man who said it, Ibn-E-Battuta.

Born in Tangier, Morocco on the 24th Feb, 1304, Ibn-E-Batuta established the science of Travel Writing. He was a medieval Moroccan Muslim scholar and traveler who set out on his journey at the age of 21. When he left Morocco in 1326, little did he know that he will not be seeing his country for the next 24 years. What should have been a simple 16 month pilgrimage to Mecca, called the Hajj, took him to different corners of the world. He is widely recognized as the greatest travelers of all time. All his travels are documented in his journal called ‘The Rihla’ which translates to ‘The Journey’. A journey spanning a whopping a 30 years. His travels covered most of the Islamic world. His journeys included trips to North Africa, the Horn of Africa, West Africa, Middle East, South Asia, Central Asia, Southeast Asia and China.

New ‘things’ do excite us but then we adapt to it being around, the happiness fades away. But the happiness that comes from experiences never die. Experiences create memories. Memories put a smile on our face whenever they come back to us. We can never get adapted to them.
