May no doubt ever stand in the way of you and your travel plans!
1. How do I convince my parents for a solo trip?
Don't tell your Indian parents that travel will help you live life to the fullest or bring out your best version. They won't understand it. Tell them how travelling will help you get a better job. Spin a tale around how employers prefer well travelled candidates. Show them real examples of your friends who travel frequently and earn well. That should convince them.

2. Can I ask my air hostess for a seat change if I'm sitting next to a crying baby?
You can, but try crying louder than the baby (to shut him up) or start listening to heavy metal music on your earphones :P :)

3. Is Goa fun during the monsoon?
During monsoons, other than the fact that you will get cheap accommodation, relatively inexpensive airfare and empty beaches, Goa also hosts numerous festivals during this season. It starts from the festival of St Peter in July, where floating stages are constructed on the rivers, to the Bonderam Festival in August that takes place on the Divar Island. This festival boasts of vibrant parades and gigs by local bands.
