Since childhood I had been a loner…cherished long walks in lush green and yellow fields of my village…a village very close to Pakistan border…singing, at times quietly walking and talking to myself…fantasizing about life of freedom.
Sometimes I would visit nearby hills and get fascinated with carefree lifestyle of international travelers. I used to wonder how they get so much time to travel while back home I found everyone busy making a living.
I kind of started yearning for this freedom. When would that time come, when I would travel like them….???
In my village, I would go in the mustard fields, in simmering hot afternoons, spread a mat, sit under a shady tree and try reading English literature and dream about life of freedom. The only problem was I never knew English.
My goal has always been to strike a balance in my time with FAMILY and a life of JOY and FREEDOM, giving priority to either of these as per need.
Many years later, after putting in 28 years in a bank and few failed attempts at businesses….finally at the age of 52, I am smelling it, especially ever since I have started travelling solo and sleeping inside the car, my HOME ON WHEELs.
Life is much better now…I feel much more happy and joy filled than ever before, enjoying each and every moment of my time with family as well as solo road trips and sleeping inside my HOME ON WHEELs enjoying this newfound freedom……!!!
