"Don't be scared to walk alone...Don't be scared to like it... "Once again ( my third time) I took off on a holiday all by myself, and it was nothing short of amazing!Travelling alone is not always about the cliché deep soul searching business or getting lost finding yourself. For me it's more about the freedom to do what I want and when I want without the burden of living up to another person's idea of a holiday.We mostly exist in a routine that thrives on people pleasing. And however selfish this may sound, a vacation should not have to be that.Sometimes you gotta make things about you My photos and descriptions here are an account of how interesting it is to be going solo and still not having to compromise on any of the fun that people usually seem to assume can only come with traveling in a group.

Since we had a comfortable overnight journey, today we were all fresh and ready to have an exciting day ahead. Today, we are supposed to go to Oxford city in south east of London. It is a 2 hour train journey from London and we reach Oxford by 10 am. There was a city bus tour here again, but since we had the entire day to spend in Oxford our preferred choice of exploring the place was by walking around. We took a map of the city from the train station and we labeled the route we had to take, it was a circular walk around the city.The buildings in Oxford demonstrate an example of every English architectural period and its known as the "city of dreaming spires", a term coined in reference to the harmonious architecture of Oxford's university buildings. The University of Oxford is the oldest university in the English speaking world. Our walk leads us through the heart of the historic city centre illustrating in itself the history of Oxford and its university and the map in our hand gave us the description of the architecture and traditions of its most famous buildings and institutions. Even though I was not a good student myself or much of a book reader, I felt it was a prolific day spent in Oxford, a city also prominent for its medieval university. Our day ended with some good coffee and we reached back home in London at around 8 in the evening.

My first experience of travelling outside India was when I went to UK to pursue an MBA and did not return for two years. I lived in Cardiff and London during the time.
