5 Blissful Eastern Ghats Trekking Destinations around Bangalore

“Oh, this is an ugly world.”

You must be judging this blog as an aggressively stupid and unpleasantly negative piece of work. And in an argumentative mode, you will probably be saying in your mind,

“No man, you are mistaken. This world has hidden so many beautiful gems in its womb.”

We heard you. Probably, we weren’t clear enough the first time. We will rephrase it.

Rewind your daily life and you shall see how boxed your routine has become. There are thousands of desires you would like to complete but you are postponing those for some special occasions. It simply means that you do not want to break it. You are comfortable as you are, as you were and as you will be. So for you,

“Oh, this is an ugly world. You probably hate your world.”

But you can change it. No, we are going to persuade you to spend all your savings in travelling the world. You just accumulate some energy, time and courage to come out of your monotonous day. You can change it by forwarding one step, one step to come out of your house, one step to travel along the road, one step to visit the places you’d never been before.
