Few days back I was watching this advertisement on TV for Godrej Cinthol Bathing Products in which so many people were having some unconventional bathing experiences and first thought after seeing some of the visuals in the Ad straight away took me into flashback of all my past Travel journeys so far in life… The mantra of the Ad, “Alive is Awesome”, kept murmuring into my head cells for a while as it touched my heart so deeply, recalling my senses how I felt the same way the day when I seriously started to live my passionThe Travel … Very soon I realized that how aptly this Mantra of “Alive is Awesome” applicable to my present state as a person in this life. My sincere thanks to my Traveling Passion which never leaves me the person I was before whenever I return to my family from my Travel trips…

What’s “Alive is Awesome” Series all About

This feeling somehow urged my senses to join in with a blogging campaign “Alive is Awesome Bathing” by Godrej Cinthol and share with my readers & other bloggers, a series of articles over next month where in I will start from describing why I started to Travel, how each of my Travel Trip transformed me to a person I am as of now living his life @ Full Fun, from a Devilish (thus the name of my blog:)) person I was before… A treacherous journey which was never easy but Traveling did make it very simple and transparent for me. How it helped me overcome so many of my fears, I never realized unless I ever faced them…

Then, I will share my feelings through various posts about how even as little moments or small personal experiences while Traveling such as wild or unconventional bathing, a laugh over screwed up tyre in middle of nowhere in freezing temperatures, those scary moments of flash floods, being so thirsty to drink water from snow water streams like animals etc.  I had with family and friends were responsible for adding that spark for Living the Life rather just waiting to die… Recalling few visuals from the Ad, that smiling Girl sitting on top of an elephant, that chilly dip into the chilly water pond with snow all around, diving into the waterfall etc. made me realize how similar moments in my past Travel Trips had also made me laugh, feely lively, enjoy those special moments with my friends & family and actually LIVE such moments for first time in my life… Truly a feeling of being ALIVE, a feeling called LIFE…

Finally, I will conclude this special series with my in-heart aspirations or freaky ideas from my future Travel Trips and how I want to continue to make me and my family feel “Alive is Awesome” for the rest of this life.
