Arushi Nishank on her love for travel: I am already contemplating my next destination
Producer-actress Arushi Nishank who has been part of a couple of music videos and will soon be seen in the film Tarini says that while she was travelling on her birthday, she will be heading out soon again. She says that travelling gives you a new experience each time, and is essential for growth.
“Istanbul marked the culmination of my birthday celebration, and now I'm contemplating my next destination. Being enamoured with vintage architecture and infrastructure, I'm considering visiting a place that boasts a rich historical era,” she says.
She adds, “Certainly, the significance of travel extends beyond leisure; it encompasses valuable experiences, cultural exposure, and personal growth. While the pace of professional life can limit travel opportunities for some, finding a balance between work and personal pursuits is essential. Travel not only broadens perspectives but also allows individuals to escape routine, rejuvenate, and gain new insights. Incorporating travel into one's life, even if in smaller doses, can contribute to a more enriched and fulfilling existence.”
Traveling reduces stress and brings joy and happiness, she says, adding, “I wholeheartedly agree that traveling has the potential to significantly reduce stress and contribute to feelings of joy and happiness. Immersing oneself in new environments, cultures, and experiences can be a powerful antidote to the pressures of daily life. The excitement of exploration and the sense of adventure can create positive emotions and lasting memories. Additionally, taking a break from routine and stepping into a different world allows for relaxation and a fresh perspective, promoting overall well-being. Travelling is not just a physical journey; it can also be a transformative and uplifting experience for the mind and soul.”
She says that different people plan their holidays differently. “The diversity in approaches to holiday planning reflects the varied personalities and preferences that exist among individuals. Meticulous planners find satisfaction in detailed itineraries, ensuring that every aspect of their holiday is carefully organised and optimised for enjoyment. This method offers a sense of control and anticipation, allowing them to make the most of their time away.”
She adds, “On the other hand, spontaneous travellers thrive on the thrill of the unexpected. They relish the freedom to make last-minute decisions and embrace the unknown. For them, the spontaneity adds an element of excitement and adventure to the travel experience. The flexibility to go wherever the wind takes them can lead to unique discoveries and memorable experiences that may not be possible with a structured plan.”
She says, “Both approaches have their merits, and the choice often depends on individual preferences, personality traits, and the type of experience one seeks from a holiday. Some may find joy in the anticipation of a well-planned trip, while others cherish the spontaneity of an impromptu adventure. Ultimately, the beauty of travel lies in its ability to cater to a diverse range of tastes and styles, offering something for everyone to enjoy.”
However, travelling solo is not something she enjoys. “I don't consider myself the type of person who enjoys solo travel. I prefer being surrounded by friends and family, especially since my schedule often keeps me busy, and I rarely get time to spend with them. Therefore, whenever I plan a trip, I make sure to invite my loved ones to join me. Solo travel has never been and will never be on my bucket list, as it's something I feel I can't undertake or enjoy.”
