You'll be able to relate to this feeling if you've ever started a journey without a goal or an outcome in hindsight. Be it a career choice, a work project, first hand of poker, your last relationship or a trip. No particular reason why I chose Rishikesh for my first solo, apart from the sheer convenience of it. 280 kms, 7 hours from Delhi by bus and 2 hours Gurgaon to Delhi intercity. December day temperatures at 10 degrees C. Economical hostel Skyard, dorm nights <300 Rupees, conveniently placed at a market neighbourhood and has a view. Winter wears, check, munchies, check, budget, shallow pockets.
