The Wander Flair, a Journey

Wandering to an everlasting destination

What is it that you like in a journey? What matters to you the most when you’re on the go? Do you keep a track of time, know where you’re exactly on the map or where you’re heading to and why?

It was just a regular weekend when I got up late, trying to figure out what’s next ahead. While still on a train of thoughts, I started with daily chores keeping in mind that I’ve to go out. Shortly after, I was on the back of my wheels just to know that I was heading, somewhere. I was comfortable with that thought and I kept going.

It’s a beautiful place, Chhattisgarh, where one often lands at destination that’s nothing less than a surprise. Perhaps because it’s still unexplored or maybe because not many know about what is explored or left unexplored here. But I guess that day, my journey was not about one single destination. It was a journey in which I reached a million destinations and those places never asked me to stop, instead, they pushed me to go on.

What can be new about a horizon? We see it everyday and it can never be reached I learned from science. But as it grew on me, I realised that it’s all about a blue sphere. Then I got a clue, maybe journey is about a chase that’s endless. It’s about the journey, not the destination.

Hi! I am G. Swapnil, a working professional happily married to G. Divya and I love to go about places, explore what's around me and script them for memories. I've been traveling Chhattisgarh since I came back completing my PG in 2008 from Amity University, Noida. There was lot to wander in Chhattisgarh as it was comparatively unexplored and had been recently identified as a separate state. Leaving Raipur behind on weekends, finding peace on the roads, the horizon and halts it became a passion. Slowly, I started collecting these journeys on Instagram and later founded this travelogue Welcome236. I am excited to know your opinion of the blog and if you want to get in touch with me for suggestions, feedbacks and collabs then email me on I'll be quick to respond on Instagram DM
