There is always a reason behind travel. People are either running away from something or looking for something new in their life, which they usually figure out on their way. The reason to travel doesn’t really have to make sense because I believe one should explore their potential by traveling around places by themselves.
Life is an ongoing struggle for everyone with many ups and downs. For me, I was hitting the rock bottom, with a lot of confusion regarding my career and just life in general. My mind was pondering over many questions regarding where does my happiness lies, what is absolute happiness, what is my purpose in life and what do I want to do passionately in future. Oh Yes!!, I was in my quarter+1 life crisis!! Struggling with my own personal issues, I had a sudden urge to getaway from all the people around/city life and spend some time alone by myself. Being bitten by the travel bug, I decided that the best possible way would be to get away for a week somewhere around in the mountains. I was uncertain about my parents being comfortable with this idea of travelling solo in the hills and that’s when it hit me that I could take permission to visit our vacation home located in Pangot, Uttrakhand. To my surprise, they were pleased by this decision and encouraged me to visit the hills by my self (baby steps towards travelling solo in the hills).
