Journey Of Life

We probably all know Vincent Van Gogh. The famous artist?!
Okay if some of you are still hazy about who’s Van Gogh just google just to have an idea about his work.

As we’re on the same page now, just a suggestion for all who travels: please just don’t take pictures, or bluntly hear what’s the guide’s blabbering cuz it can get really annoying and piss you off. So if you commit to visit, even just to take pictures please roam around & know the place from your point of view. I bet you’ll find stories that’ll interest you even if you hated history classes still those isles while walking through will amuse you.

So Van Gogh was a guy who was extremely gifted. Though people didn’t know or care about him throughout his whole lifetime. But he didn’t care, he walked in his own way & followed his calling. He left his dad’s family business, only his brother’s support was by his side. He was living a very sad life, literally. But found happiness in his work & never stopped following his dream through portraying nature & life. Though ultimately life got him bad, he surrendered after a betrayal from a friend whom he thought was dear.

But little did he know just after he surrendered to himself, his beloved brother on the other hand wouldn’t be able to take the pain?
He died naturally, couldn’t take the shock of his brother’s passing, leaving a young bride & a child.
His sister-in-law found tons of letters both brothers exchanged. She wanted to honor both. So she started displaying Van Gogh’s paintings into various exhibitions.

Gradually it became very popular over the years, she passed away but her offspring held on to uncle’s legacy and flourished it more.

Nowadays, if you visit Van Gogh Museums you’ll see it all. The love, the dedication, the tragedy, the letters etc all together will portray a story of life & choices.

So fact is no matter what, any sort of fulfillment, goals will come along, even if it seems there’s no way still just tag along with this life.
Because even if you think you don’t matter, you actually matter.
Even if you think you’ve seen it all or figured all out, still have an open mind that there’s so much more to explore.
If not today, someday will be your day just remain honest, kind, helpful & cautious.
You’ll give kudos to yourself that you’ve survived this journey of life.

Tuileries Garden

This beautiful Ferris Wheel seemed close to the Museum de Louvre’s premises. Without giving a second thought started walking towards it. Gradually discovered was standing near to the Jardines de Tuileries (Tuileries Garden)!

There was a carnival going on. And their it was, the beautiful Ferris Wheel 🎡. Right away bought a ticket and got onto the Ferris wheel. Gradually when it went to the top and got to witness the most mesmerizing view of Paris and was literally swallowed by the beauty of the city of love.

Took €10 but presented a view of a lifetime! A city never been before but was fearless while roaming around all by myself.

Though pickpocketing might create an issue but being a little conscious about belongings would benefit a lot.

Vondelpark, Amsterdam

Never let the world fool you with all its fake glittery stuffs; be yourself let the world accept what you believe in and your values.

Let kindness nourish you and all the good around you may influence you to spread peace and happiness.

Cruise by the river Seine, Paris, France

It was a magical night in Paris,
Cruised around by the river Seine,
Witnessed some of the most famous historical sites,
The wind was calmly spreading it’s soothing breeze,
A French instrumental song was playing in the background,
Gradually a view snatched all the attention.

Enjoy!

The Eiffel Tower

Tips:

While visiting France’s capital Paris don’t forget to take a cruise at night by the river Seine. One cruise ride will showcase almost all the heritages of Paris but before purchasing tickets know the routes the cruise will take.

It’s affordable ($12) and will indeed gift you an experience of a lifetime.

Berlin Architecture

Stopped to take a snap, my good days in Berlin.

Tbt other places were on my schedule that day but research can wait for academic purposes 🐸.

So here I was, roamed around, gathered experiences, tried to understand a different culture and did my own research first, for myself.

Thank you Berlin. You got good & strict laws to protect the people. Safe city to roam alone.♥️
