Paddle boarder has close encounter with massive whale

Posted by Anup Baral September 1st, 2016 : An amazing video has emerged of an paddle boarder having a close encounter with a huge whale. The video, captured earlier this month off the coast of Bega Valley, Australia, shows the massive animal breaching right next to the man's paddle board.
The paddle boarder wrote online: ''The first I knew I was catching something out the corner of my eye as it breached within 2 inches of the paddle board.'' ''The wave its bulk created breaking the surface of the water actually pushed the board up and back. ''At the beginning it was pretty frightening, then I quickly realised it was passing me by for a look and the next several seconds were pure elation,'' he continued.

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.
