Responding to the move of main opposition party CPN-UML to forge a leftist alliance for the upcoming provincial and federal elections, the ruling Nepali Congress has also initiated a process to forge an electoral alliance with ‘democratic forces’. Six various parties have agreed to join the NC-led alliance. A meeting of six various parties held at the prime minister’s official residence at Baluwatar Wednesday evening decided to form a seven-member task force to work out the electoral alliance for upcoming polls. Top leaders of the Federal Socialist Forum Nepal, Rastriya Janata Party Nepal, Rastriya Prajatantra Party (Democratic), Rastriya Prajatantra Party and Nepal Loktantrik Party were present at the meeting called by the NC. Although the Rastriya Janamorcha and Nepal Workers Peasants Party have openly criticized the UML-led alliance, these two parties were not present at the NC-hosted meeting.

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.
