Booking bus tickets early for Dashain likely to be impossible

Posted by Anup Baral September 15, 2016 :
Reservation of bus tickets from Kathmandu to various parts of the nation for this year̢۪s Dashain has gone down by almost 50 per cent, according to transportation entrepreneurs. Thousands of people go back to their homes to celebrate Dashain every year. However, reservation of bus tickets this year has decreased massively compared to the previous years, say transportation entrepreneurs. According to the Paschim Nepal Bus Byawasai Sangh (PNBBS), Kathmandu, ticket reservation has gone down by 50 per cent ahead of this Dashain compared to last year, though the advanced booking of tickets has been opened since a week. Around 1.5 million people leave Kathmandu every Dashain. Passengers will now have to buy tickets on the day they leave for their destination. The Transport Management Department said that it would be difficult for them to manage the huge number of people leaving Kathmandu during this festive season.

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.
