Freshly graduated, starry-eyed with big dreams, even bigger ambitions and the wish to do something truly extraordinary with my life, I entered the large black gates of my new office. My first job was bound to be an experience that would bring remarkable changes in my life. And so it did. But not quite like I had expected. Six months into it, I knew that I was, in fact, not meant for a tiresome corporate 9-5 job. Caged in my cubicle, I would spend most of my time desperately trying to bring back the lost colour in my life. So one fine day, I finally took the plunge and escaped to Jaipur for a week-long trip.
Soon I was tugging along in a bus to the desert capital. For the first time in several months, I had no set schedule, no plans and no restrictions whatsoever. As I entered the Pink City, a surge of excitement overtook me and I felt like a child left unsupervised in a candy store. There was so much on offer, and I wanted to indulge in everything possible. That's when I stumbled upon the vibrant goStops Hostel, a place that I entered tired, lost and lonely but left content and cheerful with my new-found family!
