The Travel Tattoo

Travelers travel and when they are not travelling they reminisce about places    that “were,” read and plan places that “will be”.  While the connection one has with a place is unique and  and sometimes inexpressible, we have all tried to document our memories.


Then there are milestones, bucket lists, travel maps that help you ogle at all the places you have ‘Checked in’ to and those that are on the wishlist. We often find ourselves taking breaks to look up a destination and brush the mundane-ness of everyday life away.  I am writing this blog post in between mindless excel sheets and a power point presentation.sometimes inexpressible, we have all tried to document our memories. Blog posts, Pinterest, Picassa  Facebook albums,  souvenirs and post cards make up the umbilical cord to the globe.

Nikhil and I have another quirky way to relive the wonders of our travels. On our first trip together to Gokarna, we indulged in tattoos. This was my first and Nikhil’s fifth tattoo. The tattoo is a simple Chinese symbol for “Go”, which represents the zeal to just pack and leave. Underneath the Go is a strike for each place traveled  A special score card embedded on our bodies that keeps our travel souls “GOING”.
