Are you aware about, ‘No cost travelling’ ?

Very informative for travellers. Thought to share it with my travel blogger friends

Unravel to travel

So, i recently asked my friend, name one thing that holds you back from travelling and what he replied is what i hear from everyone i talk to: “Ash, I don’t have enough money.”

Money.

I personally think, you do not need to be rich to travel.

Lets repeat that.

You do not need to be Rich to travel cheap.

You need to make travel a priority, if travel is not your priority you will always find other things to spend your money on. People save money, they have agenda behind saving, atleast some do.

My Take On Disability

My parents tell me I had the most beautiful eyes. When I was three though, something started going wrong with them. Doctors said it was glaucoma and I underwent an operation in my right eye. Soon after, my parents noticed that my right eye had some discharge coming out of it.
