The pegs were to be driven into the ground, the fluttering of the tent walls was to be felt from within and without, the life of a nomad was to be lived!
Camping was on my mind for quite some time now but never materialized. Many of the camping expedition with my friends got cancelled. Their last minute thoughts took them over to the conclusion that camping won't be a good option for the girls only groups. But this time I made a breakthrough and decided to cull camping at Ooty. The pegs were to be driven into the ground, the fluttering of the tent walls was to be felt from within and without, the life of a nomad was to be lived!
Camping solo, especially as a female, can be daunting, but it shouldn't be! Travelling on your own are often a tremendous experience. There is a usual believe that camping is a group activity. In movies, we regularly see a contented trio of friends huddled around the fire, preparing barbeques and regaling one another with tales from the day.
But what happens when you want to go it alone and enjoy the camaraderie of a group of women in an unknown campsite?
A BIT OF PLANNING HELPS!!!
I had already planned for this trip a week in advance by booking a campsite from campper.com. I specifically wanted to have a peaceful stay away from the crowd. They suggested camping at Ooty and Kotagiri as the point of my stay. They said there are more solo female campers out there and every detail about the campsite and the transportation was explained. The talk with them made me step on an extra comfort zone and I started my journey to Kotagiri – The Affordable Luxury.
