Study the past to define the future
Every human once in his life time wonders, where he came from. Our existence has intrigued us in some or the other way. Scriptures, monuments and remains have served a huge purpose by giving us a glimpse from the places we come from. It is a clear reflection of why are we the way we are today.
I have been traveling since the age of 12, and there are no plans to stop anytime soon. After traveling to 10 different countries and visiting more than 50 monuments, finally, I realized my hidden love for travel and thus, I started exploring more about the world’s greatest historical monuments.
This all started because of my father. He is a history lover and a traveler by heart. Having a
transferable marketing job; he got ample of opportunities to travel across India and visit all the greatest historical monuments. I accompanied him in all his trips and eventually became a monument traveler of the world.
This picture is one of my oldest memories of Taj Mahal with my mom and dad.
Through this blog, I wish to bring all these mesmerizing historic colossal masterpieces to one place, so that nobody is deprived of their beauty. These monuments are storytellers in themselves. They speak of the times that we can only think and dream of. A simple look at them can transport you to those times. Our ancestors left us with them and it is demanded of us that we acknowledge their beauty.
Embraced the life of a Globetrotter
Witnessing The Taj Mahal was a privilege, then and now. Then it continued from there.
The picture at the right is me and a mausoleum near Taj Mahal.
The picture at the left side was taken when I visited a famous Konark monument in India.
When I was working in Hyderabad, I literally became a full-time cubicle worker and a part-time traveler during vacations and weekend. I had traveled to neighboring countries such as Sri Lanka, Myanmar, China, Malaysia and much more during those times.
I am in Winnipeg, Canada now and will not leave any opportunity to explore historical monuments here.
I love Chinese and Indian food and can have lots of those. I usually read books on traveling and if I am not reading then I am traveling. I do not like reading history, but I always want to travel to the destination if possible and then learn history about that place. That passion is driving me and will continue to do so.
During this journey, I have made lot of friends, who also share the similar passion. I learned new words from different languages, tasted local food, shopped artifacts and local clothes and missed flights too! My house is full of those artifacts. Eventually, I learned a lot of ways and methods to travel efficiently and effectively and how to enjoy to the zenith.
Finally, Bonjour Monuments!
Welcome to my travel blog!
Keep 3 things in mind:
- Best travel plans are not expensive
- World is not a bad place to travel
- Trust me you have not traveled enough
This is the place where I will share useful videos, amazing photographs, quick tips of traveling, my personal experiences, several dos and don’ts and historical background of the marvelous monuments across the world.
Through this blog, I want to tell you about new destinations across the world and celebrating and embracing what is correct, opening yourself to new possibilities and finally how to be global but at the same time think local.
Monuments Travel is much more than just packing bags, booking tickets and clicking pictures. It is about feeling the history, talking to the local people, learning their language, eating local food and reliving that historical movement again which dazzles your imagination. It is about making your own perspective.
We do it Differently
Unlike any other Monuments travel website or blog, I have no featured or sponsored content in my blog. I have myself traveled to all these places, stayed at budget hotels, saved money and paid at all the restaurants.
Just like you, I also want to travel cheap and enjoy to the fullest. Real travelers want more people to travel the world and learn about the rich history.
It is my mission now to help all of those who really want to travel and learn about majestic monuments of the world.
My First Destination
Can you guess where we are going together in my first post.?
Yes, the history repeats itself, I will take you to my favorite historical monument, THE TAJ MAHAL
Taj Mahal means crown of palaces in Persian language. It is an ivory white colored mausoleum in the Indian city of Agra, located on the bank of river Yamuna. It is considered as the World Heritage site by UNESCO. It is also one of the seven new wonders of the world.
Famous personalities such as Bill Clinton, Lady Diana, Prince Charles, Orlando Bloom, Leonardo Di Caprio, Mark Zuckerberg and many more have visited Taj Mahal and have been overwhelmed by the beauty and aura of Taj.
According to Bill Clinton, There are two kinds of people in the world. Those who have seen the Taj Mahal and love it, and those who have not seen the Taj Mahal and love it. I would like people to watch the Taj Mahal and fall in love with it.
If you have not seen The Taj Mahal, then this is the moment, plan your travel in this winter and experience the glory.
