< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

When traveling is in your blood, not your budget.

If travel is always on your mind, then you’re probably trying to find ways to leave home for a long weekend right now. It’s hard when traveling costs more than your rent sometimes and leaving your responsibilities and home unattended, even for a short time, can cause issues.

You don’t have to feel trapped, though, when you simply can’t give in to your wanderlust. Instead, you can try these suggestions to make staying in your hometown seem like an enlightening vacation.

1. Decorate your home.

Changing your surroundings can make you feel more comfortable about staying home when traveling isn’t a possibility. You can display items that you got from your earlier travels or use decorations that evoke wanderlust. Having some of the quotes listed below and pictures of places you want to visit hanging on the walls can make traveling seem more conceivable.

3. Sample different cuisine.

Experimenting with different foods at restaurants or through your own cooking is a great way to appease your wanderlust. One of the best things about traveling is sampling the unique food options, so bringing that joy to your kitchen might make you feel a bit better about needing to wait for your next trip.

4. Visit local events.

Your neighborhood might be hosting a block party with giveaways, music and free food. Or there could be a trivia or karaoke night downtown. Maybe your local movie theater is having a film festival or classic film weekend. From arts and crafts fairs to actual fairs and carnivals, your city is ripe with opportunities to entertain even the most travel-deprived person.

5. Go out and party!

Spend a night out on the town. You can explore new bars you just haven’t had the chance to visit or go back to your favorite haunts for a good meal and a good time. Remind yourself that you can have an adventure no matter where you are.

6. Watch a documentary.

Travel documentaries on Netflix or other streaming platforms feature beautiful scenery that you can enjoy from the comfort of your living room. Or your bed. Each film teaches you a wonderful lesson about life or history and, if made well, will make you feel like you’re in the wilderness along with the cast.

7. Read an engaging book.

Books are no joke. They let you escape reality …

22 Motivational Quotes To Break You Out Of Your Comfort Zone

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

A ship is always safe at the shore — but that is not what it is built for.

No one wants to live a basic life, but it can be hard to figure out how to step out of your comfort zone. We’re constantly on a search for happiness and we all want to lead an exciting and fulfilling life, but to make these dreams a reality we have to be proactive and search for new experiences and new opportunities.

It’s scary to put ourselves out there.

But without taking chances or analyzing every little detail that could possibly go wrong, we most likely won’t achieve the life we’re after.

What’s holding you back is this tiny thing called the known. This is called your comfort zone. A comfort zone is where we are when we feel safe, at ease, and stress-free. Sounds pretty nice and cozy, right?

So, why would any one ever want to step outside of it? Well, nothing groundbreaking ever really happens in your comfort zone.


For a select few, that may be fine. But I know that most people are after adventure, a happily ever after, and experiences they will be able to look back on and say, “I can’t believe I did that, but I’m so glad I did.”

So, it’s about time we leave that zone of protection and familiarity. 

Leaving your comfort zone is so rewarding. What are some of the things we chase after when we decide to be brave and leave our comfort zone? Some chase after a promotion or a better job. A few leave their job to start at something new that will make them happier than they’ve ever been.


Some people will pack up their belongings, wave goodbye, and move to another state or country. Others might finally talk to the person they’ve been eyeing for a while now or do something radical — jump out of a plane (attached to a parachute of course).

And what are the outcomes of these? Great stories to tell, a better life, a happier individual.

So with all these great possibilities, why do choose to not take a step outside of what they’re comfortable with?

Well, because they can fail. But the important thing about failure is it’s only a possibility, not a guaranteed outcome. And failure is not the final outcome, it’s a chance to start again and learn.…

इस रहस्यमयी झील में जो भी गया बन जाता है पत्थर | Lake Mystery

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Deadly Lake Turns Animals Into Stones, Hindi

राजा मिडास की कहानी तो आपने ज़रूर सुनी होगी, जो जिस चीज़ को भी छूता था वो सोने की बन जाती थी लेकिन क्या आपने ऐसी झील के बारे में सुना है जिसके पानी को छूते ही हर कोई पत्थर बन जाता है? उत्तरी तंजानिया में ऐसी ही झील मौजूद है जिसे नेट्रान लेक कहा जाता है।

फोटोग्राफर निक ब्रांड्ट ने इस बात का खुलासा अपनी किताब ‘Across the Ravaged Land’ में किया। ब्रांड्ट ने बताया कि जब उत्तरी तंजानिया की नेट्रान लेक की तटरेखा पर पहुंचे तो वहां के दृश्य ने उन्हें चौंका दिया। झील के किनारे जगह-जगह पशु-पक्षियों के स्टैच्यू नजर आए। वे स्टैच्यू असली मृत पक्षियों के थे।

कोई भी नहीं जानता है की ये पशु-पक्षी कैसे मरे। लेकिन वहीं लेक की अत्यधिक रिफ्लेक्टिव नेचर ने उन्हें भ्रमित किया जिसके कारण वे सब पानी में गिर गए। दरअसल झील के पानी में जाने वाले जानवर और पशु-पक्षी कुछ ही देर में कैल्सिफाइड होकर पत्थर बन जाते हैं। पानी में नमक और सोडा की मात्रा बहुत ही ज्यादा है, इतनी ज्यादा कि इसने मेरी कोडक फिल्म बॉक्स की स्याही को कुछ ही सेकंड में जमा दिया। पानी में सोडा और नमक की ज्यादा मात्रा इन पक्षियों के मृत शरीर को सुरक्षित रखती है।

Deadly Lake Turns Animals Into Stones, Hindi

सारे प्राणी calcification के कारण चट्टान की तरह मजबूत हो चुके थे इसलिए बेहतर फोटो लेने के लिए हम उनमे किसी भी तरह का बदलाव नहीं कर सकते थे इसलिए फोटो लेने के लिए हमने उन्हें वैसी ही अवस्था में पेड़ों और चट्टानों पर रख दिया। इन पक्षियों के फोटो का कलेक्शन ब्रांड्ट ने अपनी नई किताब ‘Across the Ravaged Land’ में पेश किया है। यह किताब उस फोटोग्राफी डाक्यूमेंट का तीसरा वॉल्यूम है, जिसे निक ने पूर्वी अफ्रीका में जानवरों के गायब होने पर लिखा है।

पानी में अल्कलाइन का स्तर पीएच9 से पीएच 10.5 है, यानी अमोनिया जितना अल्कलाइन। लेक का तापमान भी 60 डिग्री तक पहुंच जाता है। पानी में वह तत्व भी पाया गया जो ज्वालामुखी की राख में होता है। इस तत्व का प्रयोग मिस्रवासी ममियों को सुरक्षित करने के लिए रखते थे।…

15 Inspiring Anthony Bourdain Quotes on Life and Adventure

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Celebrity chef and TV personality Anthony Bourdain took his cooking career to another level by becoming a bestselling author and a TV personality.

Sadly, on June 8, 2018, Bourdain was found dead of an apparent suicide in his hotel room in Strasbourg, France.

Born on June 25, 1956, Bourdain made a name for himself after The New Yorker published his article “Don’t Eat Before Reading This” in 1997. Ever since then, he has had a flourishing career hosting TV shows such as A Cook’s Tour– a show about Anthony’s exotic food experiences traveling around the world; and No Reservations, which explored similar themes.

His show Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown has won several Emmys. Bourdain also participated as a guest on Bravo’s Top Chef and as a main judge on Top Chef All-Stars.

He has written several books, including Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, which was turned into a short-lived sitcom starring Bradley Cooper.

Bourdain’s love for traveling, good food and drinks made him a wonderful storyteller.


Here are 15 Anthony Bourdain quotes that will urge you to take that journey and live your life to the fullest.

Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life—and travel—leaves marks on you.

Open your mind, get up off the couch, move.

Your body is not a temple, it’s an amusement park. Enjoy the ride.

Good food is very often, even most often, simple food.

Maybe that’s enlightenment enough: to know that there is no final resting place of the mind; no moment of smug clarity. Perhaps wisdom…is realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go.

The journey is part of the experience – an expression of the seriousness of one’s intent. One doesn’t take the A train to Mecca.

Things got broken. Things got lost. But I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.

That without experimentation, a willingness to ask questions and try new things, we shall surely become static, repetitive, moribund.

Luck is not a business model.

If you’re 22, physically fit, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel – as far and as widely as possible.

Don’t lie about it. You made a mistake. Admit it and move on. Just don’t do it again. Ever.

Skills can …
