A girl’s desire to travel solo
Simply think how astonishing it will be the point at which you finally climb up that long trek in the Gangotri lastly look at that dazzling view you’ve just seen in pictures or TV. You can absorb everything, take a seat for a considerable length of time and think about how mystical life can be, discreetly.
But just in one condition, you are enjoying all this alone. Yes, solo trip. A girl solo trip may sound a little strange and new concept in India but trust me in foreign it’s a hit trend. At least once in a life time, a girl should travel alone because, at the point when a lady travels, especially alone, she is creating an impression, one that says that she declines to be related with the generalization of ladies as delicate and unreliable. She is opening herself up to new encounters and openings—she doesn’t go to escape life, yet she travels so life doesn’t get away from her.
Being a girl, when your life is full of expectations and restrictions there’s an undeniable sense of freedom that comes from traveling alone, without help, rules or guidelines. Every day is a mystery for someone like a curious soul like me.
Travelling was always my most favourite adventure of life and I don’t think we need a reason to justify why. But no matter how long the vacations were, I couldn’t get a chance to travel in last 2 years. There were many reasons but most important was the lack of coordination and spirit among my friend circle. At last, I have decided to travel solo. Travel solo to Gangotri. Coming from the region of Uttarakhand, trekking is in my genes and there can not be any better place than Gangotri on earth for someone like me who loves mountains, heights, snow, solidarity, peace and of course adventure. By the way travelling solo is a complete adventure in itself.
As someone who is slightly introverted, I like the security of having a friend to talk to when traveling. But being separated from everyone else will drive me to associate with outsiders on an everyday premise, and figure out how to grasp ungainly welcome and pose more individual inquiries. When you’re all alone, it’s dependent upon you to request bearings and make sense of it. You’ll have a serious sentiment fearlessness when you know you’re fit for discovering things all alone.
I don’t want to rely on others for their opinion, I want to be comfortable in my own skin. I don’t think there can be any better way of coming out of my comfort zone and treat my self with everything I deserve.
The inspiration which is driving me to this thorough adventure is not my flighty confidence in religion, superstition of purging sins or legendary stories (considering Gangotri is an important part of Hindu mythology). I am more entranced about snow-topped Himalayas and about appearing a fantasy of being at the bank of Ganges developing out from a Glacier. I have already started envisioning that great photo of thin water stream of Ganges. As we move higher, change of scene into rich green valley will be genuinely overpowering. It’s hard to extinguish my unremitting interest about vegetation, fauna, water falls or about any water stream falling in transit now.
I want to heal myself from enough of playing the game of life. I want to sit on the peak of mountain enjoying the sunset forgetting all the chaos of life and find myself which was somewhere lost in the crowd of the metro city.
From venturing to the Northern Himalayas solo I need to love sentiments of delight, a sunny day, an unmistakable sky, a city, a grin from an outsider, an odor I was attached to… . I need to love in such a large number of structures past individuals or creatures. I need to love love.
Travelling solo as a girl won’t just give me certainty and autonomy, it will likewise show me to love myself. As ladies, we have a tendency to receive a propensity to contrast ourselves and other ladies, maybe notwithstanding contending with them. This is not at all solid, nor will it help us to develop, yet solo travel has a method for helping you to relinquish these inclinations to contrast yourself as well as other people. You soon discover that there are such a large number of various individuals out there on the planet – distinctive body shapes, diverse identities, diverse hair hues, skin hues…. etc. We are on the whole extraordinary. Embrace your individuality.
Ladies who travel solo – for any xyz reason, for whatever they detract from it, for whoever they meet en route, for whatever they miss back home, encounter a change that is just unbelievable. I need to encounter the same since it isn’t a modifier or a word found in the lexicon…. it is a sentiment opportunity. Of disclosure. Of self.
