‘Curiosity is the compass that leads us to our passion.’ It clearly points that the future belongs to the curious. With the same urge to create curiosity in the minds of people, The Land Of Wanderlust had successfully redefined artistically the concept of distance board at YOLO camping.
The Land Of Wanderlust team always had been promoting the concept of backpacking and this time they wanted to satisfy many travelers’ thirst of curiosity to know the distance to their favourite destinations from YOLO camping.
This time the TLOW team wanted to create the same vibe at a very beautiful destination situated in the Sahyadri mountain range at The Yash Resort, Bhandardara.
The objective of the distance board at The Yash Resort was the same but the challenge was to make it creative enough so that it becomes a centre of attraction to everyone. Gladly being a part of the TLOW team we were expected to zealously throw out our creativity and make a masterpiece to amuse a travelers eye as well as catch tourists attention. At first, the challenge was to make it highlight to every passer by; we had only one option to achieve which was to make it more creative.
The journey of making a distance board started with accurately finding the distance of different cities from TYRB and then creating customized backgrounds for every wooden plank;care was taken that each one of them is unique. Starting with only 6 shades of colours we ended up having more than 35 shades on those planks which was surprising and was a moment of realising our hidden talent and potential.
Breaking the ice started when we decided to let our hands be guided by our imagination in writing the names of cities. Our subconscious mind knew how exactly a particularly distant board would look but letting our hands make it on the plank wasn’t very easy. We strongly adhered to our visions in turning it into a sensation.
Eventually, every board was turning into a small success in its own way. Losing track of time we were zoned in to complete it. The more we painted the more our ideas developed and the more our ideas developed, our confidence developed. Expecting to do it in a classic way we were almost ending up doing it very artistic.
Keeping a target as close as two days to complete we were on schedule.
Excitement rode over us now wanting to see it displayed. But, there was still another challenge waiting for us.
No one could’ve imagined but we had raised the bar of creativity so high that we couldn’t ignore the small mistakes.
Some of them came out to be marvelous and others were made mind-blowing with a little touch up.
A sight of glossy distant boards started catching everyone’s attention after the water resistant was sprayed on it. The more we looked to it, the more it got us lost into it. To give the distance board it’s real look we still had to wait to put it up vertically. Luckily we had the best craftsman to do it. On a rainy day, we were excited and boosted up in putting our work for the display. Carefully placing boards one by one in different directions we were watching a miracle taking shape.
Lastly, the boards were all well hammered and we couldn’t resist ourselves to take snaps of it. Let it be dark, dim or rainy we couldn’t wait to capture it as a memory on our phones. We were proud that we could meet the requirements of the place in making the distance board.
TLOW always tries to create an exciting and refreshing ambiance to everyone who wishes to get the inside look and welcomes everyone no matter from where or who they are. So, we can say TLOW has redefined the phrase to ‘curiosity is the compass that leads you to your travel destination’.
