Reflections on Lake Garda.

Lake Garda, Gargnano, Italy

Time stands still. I gaze at the colors of the lake. The waters are transparent, but they reflect the green of the marine life beneath and the blue of the sky above. The combination forms the shades of an artist’s palette.

The sun slowly starts sinking behind the mountains. Their snow capped peaks glow just a little. The sky changes from blue to pink and orange. The ball of yellow is now the moon. Full, round, glowing. Its reflection upon the lake keeps my eyes glued. My mind still wanders. Could there be more to life than such raw beauty?

After 7 years of quitting my full-time corporate job and travelling the world, I've written a book - called The Shooting Star - about my journey. This book of untold travel stories charts my adventures from the cubicle to the road, and from small-town India to remote corners of the globe. Limited copies are now available for pre-order on Amazon and Flipkart. Drop me a note if you end up pre-ordering yours today! Connect with me on Instagram/Twitter @shivya.

  2. Wonderful description, very poetic. I can’t help but notice the pattern of the white cloud that shaped like a letter A or a pyramid. Awesome!
