"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did" - Jackson Brown Jr
Most of the times our life decisions are driven by fear and inhibitions, I was no different. There have been multiple occasions where I had holidays and travel plans ready which were eventually called off because people backed out last moment.
This New Year I decided to do something different and trust me this is the most special New Year I could / will ever have. I decided to go on a Solo backpacking trip to Coorg. The entire trip was as impromptu as it could be and I only realized this after I landed at Bangalore Airport.
Reaching Coorg :
In order to reach Coorg one needs to board a bus from Bangalore. I had booked a Red Bus and was suppose to board it from Majestic Bus stand. I reached the place 2 hours early only to realize how crazy the entire trip was going to be. Majestic bus stand was even more crowded than I had imagined it to be. To my surprise nobody understood my language there, after struggling with multiple language barriers somehow I managed to reach the boarding point. It was 10.30 PM, the roads which were filled with chaos 2 hours ago were empty now. As I walked in an empty lane with almost zero battery in my phone, I was getting tensed and irritated to an extend that I had almost given up the idea of getting up on the bus and going to Coorg. But somehow I managed to locate the bus and I was proud of myself that I did not succumb to fear.
