Inspirit Solo Traveling

When I started traveling solo, I didn’t realize why was I being dragged towards it. Whether it was running away from the people or to have my creative space. Nevertheless, traveling for me is not about finding answers but to find peace with the existing situation. I went to different places, exploring multiple versions of our world through the people I met, the food I ate and the energy that I shared with the world. 

Pulga, Himachal Pradesh

It’s been exactly 9 months from now that I have traveled solo, today I realized what am I missing out on. Life in my city is pretty laid back. However, there’s a feeling that rushes through my veins that urges me to behave in a certain way, to be good, to be courteous, to be thankful and to be well mannered around friends and family. All the little things that make me civilized, culturally presentable and verbally intelligent to be socially acceptable. To live every day in a filtered manner. That makes me the person that I have to be, to be in the race; rat race. 

Naukuchital, Uttarakhand

By allowing myself to be free, unfiltered and pleasant. I practice living in the moment. The free wind that blows on my hair, little snowflakes that sit on my nose, biscuits that I share with the stray dog, hot spring baths on a rainy day, deep dive into the ocean and more. I travel to gather my peace in pieces of large aloof mountains and vast ferocious waters. It gives me the courage to make the world a better place. Do what you love, make your daily activities favorable to your interests. Get your dosage of peace.

I love going on solo trips 

  1. To take time to appreciate little things that I otherwise miss out on because of being rushed by our company; to pay attention to the surroundings, like listening to the valley gushing down to meet the rivers.
  2. To have minimal distractions and develop creative space.
  3. To truly do whatever heart desires. Like, staying back a couple of more days at a town you loved.
  4. To interact with the localities.
  5. To stay at amazing backpacker hostels.
  6. To sleep until you want.
  7. To know the rawness when nobody’s watching. 
  8. To interact with passionate people from across the world.
  9. To eat until you wish.
  10.  Last but not least, to clear your clutter.

When was the last time you were traveling alone, wandering solo? If you haven’t already, give it go!

    A beautiful and motivating write-up for everyone to go out there and explore oneself, rather than being monotonous and follow everybody like a herd.
