At that moment #3 : A dance of light

Long long ago, during a bus ride to Toulouse on a grey day…

I rested my head on the seat in front of me. My small travel bag was hanging from this seat whose strap was between my forehead and the seat on which I am resting my head. Not a single drop of water was consumed from the water bottle I am carrying and I am staring at the half eaten Oreo packet I had bought, in the seat’s small netted elastic basket. I ate just one from the packet which I had brought.

In the twilight zone around 100 km away from my destination, I saw a dance of light on my hands as I held them clutched. The flickering light came from the right side of the bus. I looked towards the warmth.  I saw a giant cloud in the shape of a tortoise shell with the sun behind it trying to lurk out towards me just like the head of a tortoise from its body.

As bus kept moving, shorter trees along the road made way for a clearer view of this giant shell of cloud between a brown and a bald head in the right side seats of the bus. Two smoke trails emerged from this giant cloud. The trail was gaining length as two airplanes were flying away from this cloud towards left.

At this moment, dark gloomed over the bus as it entered a tunnel. A few moments of ride, few moments of darkness with little light and then at that moment we emerged into…

A beautiful landscape on either sides. Green land glimmering under the golden light at the golden hour of the day made small hills with little houses made of red bricks on top to shine bright, even from the farthest distance. A bridge made of stones with many giant pillars supporting a railway line between the small hills on my left, reflected the warmth of the bright light and hence the stones seemed yellow in color. To my right, a valley sheltered many houses than it’s opposite side. There seemed enough light to shed over these beautiful small houses, even though they were closed to the direct contact of Sun’s warmth as a small hill stood between them. 

A little curve along the road towards right, made the sun rays shower the light to wake the sleepy eyes that were either slept or were lazy under the twilight ridden bus ride to Toulouse.

People woke up from cold to the dance of light.

A start

I was away from WordPress for a very long time for the reasons I am trying to make a list. However, I used to come across other blogs often and check out how the world is been seen from other perspective and words.  One of the main reasons to be away from blogging is my masters and in particular my thesis internship at Aix-en-Provence because of which I had to stay away from family (India) and friends (both India and Poitiers, France). Others reasons include eat, sleep and travel!

 

 

Talking about traveling, I had a lot of it. Moving from Poitiers to Aix-en-Provence was one big event in 2017 which led to a gateway of meeting new people and awesome trips to Rhone-Alps, Provence, Monaco and many other places mainly in the south-east region of France. And the above video is the result of those awesome trips and memories.

It seems every moment is a fresh start. There is no need to wait for a new year or new month or new day for a fresh start. It can be done in the very next moment as you live. Every moment are new and it doesn’t matter how you live, but just live. I like to live eating awesome foods and traveling and other things.

Let’s start a new moment to live and enjoy!!

 

Euro trip – Roma, Italy (Day 1)

IMG_9716

Long long ago I had been to Rome, the capital of Italy and I explored Rome also called as Roma to my fullest extent. Since then I was trying to share the memories I had with Rome, ancient city from Roman times. It was fascinating to see some of the old roman structures standing to this date surviving many wars, weathers. Considering myself as learner and fan of history I was happy to be in this ancient city and witness the following architecture and monuments of ancient Rome.

Thanks to Roma pass, my friends and I had pretty easy access to visit these amazing places in our three day stay at Roma. On the first day we tried to explore as many places as possible and the result is here.

Roman Forum
