“If you’re bored with life, if you don’t get up every morning with a burning desire to do things, then there is more to life than you have yet to realize.”
“…There is no one and nothing around, I’m alone in the middle of the Himalayas. In fact, the region is so peacefully quiet that I sometimes forget that I’m not alone in the world. It is the feeling of solitude, blissful, wonderful solitude.”
This article explains the happiness and overwhelming sense of peacefulness that comes with cycling through solitude above 5,000m in the Indian Himalayas, a region I absolutely loved and think about often. After months in the overcrowded flatlands of India and Nepal, I am more than ready to retrieve that feeling of bliss once more as I head back into the region in a few weeks.
