Langkawi-A dream!

My journey started with a beautiful flight to kuala lampur, what i saw and felt will remain close to me forever.

sky
I rest here, looking into the wilderness; amongst my imagination.
Those clouds under me appear like an endless ground, a free one, on which you can bounce as high as you want.
This illusion in front me is the best one, pure and untouched. The illusion i want to be in for as long as i can imagine.
It is a world of mirror here, the clouds under me, the sun in front of me. The beauty beyong anything.
It is the best example of an abstract beauty. You see a tornado forming, you see a sea which is seen probably in those animated movies, you see the sun being cool down by the calmness of the sky, you see varied colors of emotions around.
You see rawness of nature. Unexplored by any other living creature. You see the world a bit more larger and wider than it actually is, you see the possibilities you have never seen or would ever see, you see light!
And in all of this what you want is to get out and walk in those, feel the sky under you!
This is not a dream, but as i said this is the world of imagination seen; untouched. Then how can you walk over these?
So are you in reality or not?
Such illusions right?

After the amazing flight i reached langkawi. It is a cluster of 99 islands (lang- eagle; kawi- limestone) a place with very interesting myths and tales, i being a person who loves to know the history and culture of that place loved the story of langkawi a lot! Mahsuri, a young women was accused of adultery by the people here. She pleaded for her innocence but no one believed. The punishment for adultery in Islam was death by stabbing, but when it was performed on her, white blood flowed proving her innocence. During her last breath, she cursed the land with 7 generations of bad luck. Till 2000 there was famine, failed crops here. After 2000 langkawi flourished as a tourist place, ending the prophecy.

So now was the time of the cable car and the sky bridge which is the major attraction of langkawi. This cable car is the steepest cable cars of the world between the rain forests and the beautiful valley among the sea. As the cable car goes up the rope the excitement or, rather the calmness in you increases! You feel so contended and so full of gratitude for the amazing play of nature. After reaching the height and appreciating the beauty, we went to the sky bridge, again in the cable cars.

There were just clouds around me during the second cable car. Consider me lucky or unlucky with that but there was just rope seen from my car, nothing else. The experience of the clouds from the plane was still fresh in my mind and this just revived it more! The guide advised us to not go to the bridge as it was way too cloudy to see anything, but why miss any experience? There might be something new to learn and see. With this thought i went to the bridge, which turned out to be one of the best decisions i had taken.

It was 7:30 in the evening, the time when the sun sets. The clouds cleared out in some time and i felt beautiful, from within. The bridge was a reminder that i am into reality, that no this is not an illusion like those scenes from the plane. The imagination very much exists and i could reach it. The beautiful sea with the green forests and the sunset made me want to stay here forever, if ever it was possible. The clouds came again in some times and i was literally walking in the clouds with a faint coolness in the atmosphere and serenity. The rawness of the clouds that i saw, was felt here. My world of imagination, the dream of walking on those clouds did come true.
