6 Travel Quotes by Ruskin Bond Inspires Love for Nature

Ruskin Bond is one of the most celebrated authors of India with love for nature and passion for travel. His travel books – “Tale of the Open Road”, “All Roads Lead to Ganga”, “Roads to Mussoorie”, and “Rains in the Mountains: Notes from the Himalayas” – are full of inspiration, which encourages readers for romance and adventure in the thick of nature. Ruskin Bond’s books for kids are collections of his stories of hills and rains, mountains and trains, eulogizing travel to nature. If you believe in his words, “Romance lurks in the most unlikely places,” you should travel the road not taken, walk the less-trodden paths, and visit the offbeat places in India.
