Travel is more than packing bags and heading out.
It's taking control. Knowing that what lies ahead, despite meticulous planning, is unknown. And when you put this much faith into your own self, the heart sets on the path of healing the deepest of wounds.
What better place to drink up your sorrows than on the intoxicating beaches of Goa. Not promoting alcoholism, but sometimes sitting around a group of friends with cold beer and watching the sun go down is all the therapy you need!

Where to Stay: Hotel Hawaii Comforts is a cozy and affordable place with a kilometer away from Miramar Beach.
Sometimes an escape is all you need. Going to place where no one knows your name and your past. Meet the people of last village of India and see yourself through the eyes of an eager child. The perfect place to start all over again, all by yourself.

When nothing seems to fix that heartache, then a humanitarian approach works best. Experience living in sync with nature, undisturbed by modern interference to realize that is there is more to learn about living than just dwelling on a heartbreak.

A quaint town on the shores of Bay of Bengal exudes comfortable strangeness. An ideal getaway from city but not too far away from the urban world. Let the sea take away whatever you don't want. In fact given the travelers who love Pondicherry there is a high possibility you will come across many exciting new people!
Sometimes the conventional approach is the best. Forget backpacking and house-boating, instead let the magic of ayurveda relieve you of stress.

If that heart is refusing to listen to the head, then probably a time away from materialism is what you need. A complete disconnect, without talking and allowing absolute introspection.
Where to Stay: Dhamma Thali Vipassana Centre is a great place for both beginners and experienced Vipassana practitioners. Despite not talking, you will be surprised at how many friends you will make.
Bangalore with its addictively blessed weather is probably the nicest metropolitan in India.

Go alone if you don't have friends there already, and have a great time with the friendly people of garden city.

10. Andaman Nicobar
Mourning is not necessarily the way out of a disappointing situation. Instead of wasting time brooding, take the opportunity to learn new things.

Where to Stay: Seven Seas Dream Castle is a great place located not far from the beach and is located in a convenient location in Port Blair.
Kashmir is a heart breaking example of a place which has sustained its beauty despite decades of conflict. When a traveler enters the valley, it is incomprehensible from the goodness of people that this very land has been bloodied hundreds of times. If anything, being here will belittle your troubles and make you surrender to the powers of nature.
