Traveling through the City of Pearls – The Sights and Sounds of Hyderabad

hyderabad

Being born and raised in Australia, I had no idea that one day I would end up living in Hyderabad, the hometown of my parents, though not of my own. As it turned out, it was one of the best moves I made in the last several years of traveling to over five continents and dozens of countries; and to be returning to my roots, in a sense, was something of an adventure just waiting to happen. When I finally arrived in Hyderabad in October of 2016, much had changed. Hyderabad was now the joint capital of two separate states, both of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. When I finally started traveling within the city, I realized the cultural diversity within both states, the old and the new, as well as the rich history between both. On the one side were all the historical sites, such as Charminar, Salar Jung Museum,…

Sometimes when things don’t go my way, and life is really messed up, I have this urge to stuff a few clothes in my backpack and take off, on a solo hike on a lonely mountain or a long-lost road, where everyone’s a stranger. On one such day when I was seriously contemplating the idea of running away while sitting idle on the sofa and surfing my phone with a scowl, I accidentally landed on the section of inspirational movies on Netflix and one of my favorite movies caught my eye.’ Into the Wild’ and my face lit up with a smile. Follow Your Heart (Into the Wild) For a second I couldn’t believe my eyes, I scoped some ice-cream to lighten my already happy mood and settled down to watch the movie for the hundredth time.
