The death toll in the bus accident at Birta Deurali of Kavre district has reached 40, the District Police Office, Kavre, said. Most of them had died on the spot. The ill-fated passenger bus with registration number Ba 2 Kha 106 had plunged 500 metres down the road after the driver lost control of it, police said. After receiving reports that some people are unaccounted for, police said, they are searching the incident site. Fifteen of the injured have been sent to Dhulikhel for treatment, while 28 others, including a woman, were airlifted to Kathmandu by a Nepali Army chopper. Among those brought to Kathmandu, 18 people are admitted to the Trauma Centre while 10 others are receiving treatment in the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital. Some of the injured are said to be in very critical condition.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
