Road Runner musings !

A famous quote – “If Wanderlust bites you on the rear, only thing to do is Pray”

” Lord, I promise I will be a good gal, but please please, no really, Pleeeeeeaaaaazzeeee, take me to every corner of this beautiful place called World!”

My prayer ??? Hell Yeah !

I have traveled so much, and yet I feel, i haven’t even seen anything yet !

I want to share with you incidences, funny things, scary things, amazement, disappointments, mistakes, each one of it only made me wiser, eh, thats a lil doubtful, but smarter for sure, and richer beyond measurable means !
