Earlier when is used to tell people that I am a solo female traveler from India, people used to make weird faces in front of me and ask me, why do I travel solo? What do I get from traveling solo? In fact, a lot of people used to consider me an irresponsible person and running away from my duties.
Solo traveling is one of the best experiences on the planet, you can freely explore your desired destinations whenever you like. You get to learn about various cultures, festivals, and foods prevailing in various parts of the world.
But there are also certain kinds of certain challenges which you need to face especially in India being a solo traveler. But with some planning, alertness and common sense you can successfully avoid all these challenges.
Talking about myself, I firmly think that we have got only one life and I have always been a weird person who loves to do crazy things in life. Solo traveling brings out the craziness and your real personality.
When I had planned my first solo trip as a solo traveler I had never thought that I would get so much obsessed to solo traveling. Rishikesh was the first place where I had traveled solo and the experience was really amazing. Even though I got so exhausted when I reached to Rishikesh, but the energy and confidence I had gained after that was really awesome. This urged me to explore more and more destinations solo and made me the person what I am today.
I just want to say that everyone should take a step out of their fancy world and take the experience of living life on their own. This will let them bring out their true self and change their view towards life.
I always encouraged people to travel solo at least once in their life. An adventure with no excuses, no limitations, and no compromises. It might be the scariest thing you’ve ever done, but if you do it, I can promise you three things:
- It’ll be one of your most memorable trips.
- You’ll meet a completely new “you”.
- You’ll definitely do it again.
Call it a cliche or just another lifestyle choice. Solo traveling is all about soul searching. It’s about changing your perspective from everything you see in front of you 24*7. It’s more about taking the next step into something unknown. Believe it or not, You need this.
