The Traveler

Traveling is oxygen for me

Mark Jenkens said, “Wanderlust is incurable” and I say that the treatment of wanderlust is wanderlust. For me, traveling is oxygen. It inspires in me the spirit to be up and kicking. Traveling is where I feel most comfortable and myself again among the stunning landscape of nature and the people surrounding me during my travel adventures.

I took the one less traveled by,
And that’s has made all the difference.

The Road Not Taken

Experiences

میں انگلش اُردُو دونوں میں سفر کرتا ہوں
نئے لوگ مجھے اچھے لگتے ہیں
اجنبی راستے مجھے جانتے ہیں۔ میں قدیم تہذیبوں کا با شندہ ہوں
صحراو ں اور جنگلوں کا رند ہوں۔ آبشار،وادیوں کا مرید اور سمندروں کا اسیر ہوں۔
میں اک مسافر ہوں!
(محمد نعیم)

I suffer in the word of Urdu which means travel in English because I like new people. Strangers know me. I am a resident of ancient civilizations. I am a wanderer of deserts and forests, a disciple of waterfall valleys and a captive of the seas – I am a traveler in this world. Muhammad Naeem

Most of what I am is largely due to traveling across the beautiful landscape of Pakistan. You can find me there strolling from the historical city of Lahore to the spiritual bliss of Multan, the sweltering hot of Cholistan, the ancient streets of Mohenjodaro, the sleeping dead of Makli Necropolis near Thatta and the most modern visage of Karachi. And again, you can find me collected in the cool breezes of Murree, the Paradise of Shogran and the snowflakes of Swat. I have had a wide range of experiences from most of my travel pursuits. The romantic poet says:

There’s a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There’s a rapture on the lonely shore,
There’s society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and the music in its roar,
I love not man the less, but Nature more…

– Lord Byron

Touching the Real-world 

فکر دنیا میں سر کھپاتا ہوں میں
میں کہاں اور یہ وبال کہاں؟
(غالب)

Traveling is the real world for real experiences, real people, real emotions. Most of our life is spent in mechanical and mundane routines which makes us mechanical too. Traveling gives us the real-world to enjoy and think about ourselves and others in calm and peaceful moments of the journey. It’s being real and natural in both form and content.

I travel not to escape life but for life not to escape me.
