Nomadic dreams !

The nomadic way of life first captured my attention a number of years ago and I instantly fell in love. Whether it’s Russian speaking Kyrgyz nomads or Bedouins meandering around the sand dunes of Arabia, they seem to have a peaceful, humble and stress-free existence. I envy them.

When I’m rushing around on crowded platforms or witnessing the horrific human traffic caused by city consumerism, my mind roams towards them, whilst they’re out, roaming themselves, battling harsh weather conditions, tugging along weary animals, dressed in tribal robes, either dark like the sand they restlessly patter on or pure white to reflect the sunlight that beats down heavily upon their brows.

If I were a nomad myself, the silence and serenity of the night would certainly be my most cherished time. I’d lay myself to rest in my kurt (tent pictured above) and I’d spend many sleepless nights staring at the sky above, watching the stars twinkling and winking at me, providing me with my own private show. The sheer beauty of the vast expanse of sky, coupled with stars, stretching for miles and miles will leave you breathless.

The dazzling Kyrgyz mountains towering up around me and the glittering turquoise rivers that run between them would be home to me. A peaceful, tranquil getaway, blistering sun and the smell of the fresh, cool air, the smell of health and never ending happiness.

Earth’s true beauty can only be witnessed in its most natural of surroundings. I hope one day this will be more than just a story, an image of a thousand words, that I’ve created in my daydreamer head.

  1. You know the sad part is that despite them having such a beautiful culture, rich heritage most of us think that they are ‘backward’ and ‘primitive’ but if you really think about it they are the ones who are closest to nature and closest to achieving earthly nirvana.

  2. That’s a good question ! But no, I definitely couldn’t drop everything and take off to Central Asia to become a nomad. It’d definitely be great to try it for a few months but then I’d have to come back home ! 😂

  3. I love this post ☺☺ I too often have nomadic daydreams as this world is overrun by consumerism and modern day lifestyle. I would happily take a step back be surrounded by nature. 😊😊😊

  4. Would you ever drop everything and simply start being nomadic? It’s so much easier said than done, but definitely possible 🙂 I’m a bit of a nomad myself, and I’ve learn’t that wandering can take many different forms – I’m a city lady at heart and so my wanderings are often city-centric rather than beneath vast open skies
