My favorite Hobby

There are a lot of hobbies that people can undertake such as bird watching, sports, stamp collecting, music and photography. But my favorite hobby is travelling. It has made my outlook change towards life. I travel alone or at times with my family and friends. I have also made a lot of friends while travelling. It made me learn a lot of things about cultures of different places and it made my time worthwhile. I have an insight on almost all the elements around me and my experiences have only grown manifolds. Whenever I get time and a chance I just embark on a new journey for a new destination. Recently me and my friends visited Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh. We went there for four days and it was a very exciting journey. We went to the temple of His Highness Dalai Lama in McLeodganj. We explored the Bhagsu falls and the famous cricket stadium of Dharamshala along with other places of interest in Dharamshala and adjoining places. I met a lot of natives and got to know the culture of this place. This place is thronged by tourists all through the year. You would find lot of foreign tourists as well. It is a very famous place in the northern India. I have visited many parts of India such as Rajastha, Jammu and Kashmir, Andaman and Nicobar Islands and even Mumbai and Trivandrum.


Hobbies are very interesting and very scintillating. Also it does not trespass other people’s rights. I feel great that I make good use of my free hours and free time.
