I checked out from the hostel on a fourth day. My bus to home from Goa was going to leave on night so I decided to see the famous Chapora fort. And it was worth it.
I had great experiences with this trip. I got to know myself more than anything. You became responsible, aware. This trip was not less than achievement for me. I am proud of it.
I had many people asking me why I am travelling alone. Don’t I get bored? They say they like the concept of travelling but don’t understand how it is fun travelling solo.
Well, I am doing that because I can :) Once you see yourself doing things you had never imagined doing alone, you become more confident about your capabilities. When you overcome your fear of riding a bike in completely new city, fear of initiating a conversation with a stranger in a cafe, fear of spending a dark night alone on top of a mountain, fear of sharing a same room with totally strangers and so on, you become confident about yourself. You know that you have achieved something without an external help. And you know you can do more things all by yourself. That feeling is liberating.
