I know I am a little too late to post about this trip but I think I'm finally ready now to expose my secret solo trip I had in May-June'18. I was supposed to go with my friends but then things didn't work out and so I decided to hit it all alone. It was supposed to be a relaxing vacation so I had decided to avoid any such physically tiring activities. During my 7 day vacation (2 spent in transit), all I did was relax, sit at beautiful places, share stories with amazing people, and eat.
To be honest, I was all excited to go solo but also scared and nervous. I am a bit of an introvert and so approaching people and asking for help comes under a no-no list for me. But I also knew I wanted to take this step someday and that I always wanted to travel solo. So I looked up for a few destinations for my first solo-travel and ended up choosing Manali. I had been there twice before and left mesmerised by the beauty that town is. A beautiful valley surrounded by snow-capped mountains. I took out my rucksack and packed the essentials. Travelling light has always been my moto and so I made sure there were no unnecessary things that I was carrying with me.
Tip - always carry a windcheater with you while travelling to the mountains.
