Every time I wanted to travel, my first task was to convince a few known people to take that trip with me (because travelling solo wasn't considered an option in my family). For a few years I managed to travel like that but after a point it became a task, because I travelled often and for the others it wasn't feasible.
It was June 2014 and I had not taken a single trip that year. I spoke to a lot of friends and cousins but none of them agreed to come along.
That was the time I decided to fight against all odds and take my first solo trip of life in the year 2014. It was just the start because post that I took quite a few solo trips in the succeeding years and now it has become a ritual.
Initially it was difficult to convince my parents because of the stereotypical notions for a woman traveller in India but now they have made peace with it. I only have to keep them updated about my whereabouts and it is all cool.
So here is my journey from 2014 till date as a solo traveller with the highlights of each trip I took. Hope this article is one of those which makes all parents tell their daughters "Yes, you can".
