I always had a dream of exploring new and fascinating places solo. Coming from a family where travelling solo is unheard of, the answer is always a big NO whenever I put forth the idea of travelling alone. Not only my family, many people consider travelling as expensive or waste of time. There are many legitimate fears and concerns about it. Even I'm scared of travelling alone but I feel travelling is best investment in yourself to experience the moments of pure emotions.
This time I decided to travel alone at any cost. I spend endless time on the internet, read many solo traveler blogs, made new friends on Facebook who also loves to travel and finally decide to visit Rajasthan. As usual no one agreed for my solo trip. I lied to my family, created a fictional bestie and started my journey to Rajasthan. One stranger who is travelling to Rajasthan at same time joined with me. I visited many places in Jaipur, mesmerized with the heritage, culture and beauty of pink city. Although everything is going smooth I returned from Rajasthan in between out of fear. Fear of unsafe, fear of unfamiliar, fear of unsure. May be this time I failed to finish my itinerary, but I'll try again and again to overcome my fears.
Everyone carry so amazing dreams with in ourselves. If we wait for others to validate or what others think about you, we never fullfill our wishes. Whatever others feel about you let them feel. We just have one life to live as we wish.
In this whole episode one person I have to thank is my husband. The Man behind my freedom, my courage and my invisible wings.
