Going places - Write Tribe Festival Wrap Up

The Write Tribe Festival of Words has concluded. The theme for this festival was 7 and I chose to write about:

 7 dream journeys that I would like to take

I believe that if we dream long and hard enough, then dreams do come true. And "consecrating" my dreams to "paper" has hopefully sent a message to the Universe that these are dreams I truly long for.

A very special thanks to Corinne who blogs at Everyday Gyaan and who masterminded this festival that I think was a huge success. Her enthusiasm and hard work made this possible.

I enjoyed this festival a lot and I had a great time writing about my 7 journeys. I'm also very thankful to all those who dropped by and took the journey with me. You brought my journeys to life with your wonderful comments. Thank you.

And it was great fun to read so many amazing posts - new words, new places, wisdom, getting to know someone, colours, trivia, stories etc.

The camaraderie was lovely and each blogger gave the other support and encouragement. I think this festival was the best one I have participated in to date.

I tried to feature some posts each day and I was surprised that while I enjoyed the writing and reading, featuring posts gave me the greatest joy of all. I do wish I had featured some more posts using the 7 theme, but as always hindsight is a wonderful thing.  I will endeavour to feature posts regularly on all my future posts as this truly brought me great joy.

So here are some more posts I enjoyed across the 7 days

  Shellymona's  Soaring Over Cloud 7 - Dreamers are believers

  Cat's 7 Childhood things - Took me down a delightful memory lane

  Kathy's 7 Lessons - A great list that had me nodding and agreeing with all of them

  Talya's 7 shades of Yoga - A very enjoyable yoga class

  Penny's 7 ways to Nourish the soul - And it truly nourished and gladdened mine

  Aditi's Power of 7  - A heart-warming post on a random act of kindness

  Anu's 7 Childhood crushes  - A fun post


And some great words of wisdom about blogging from

  Corrine's 7 Reasons why you should stop blogging

  Vidya's 7 Deadly sins of blogging


But the post that I thought was simply brilliant was

  Ruchira's 7 Crisis Strategies  - Taking a soul view (great wisdom in this post too)


And finally here are the places I went to and journeys I took virtually

  Journey 1 = Krishna Yatra
  Journey 2 = Ram Yatra
  Journey 3 = Shiva Yatra
  Journey 4 = Himalayan Adventure
  Journey 5 = Kaziranga
  Journey 6 = Royal Rajasthan
  Journey 7 = Ajanta Ellora




Have a day of dreams come true.  I look forward to the next festival

Warm Regards
