Truth or Dare : Solo Girl Travel

Difficult times they are when a traveler isn't traveling. While I was thinking and preparing a checklist , bro jumped in, “Yaar, you are such a free spirit, must be feeling so nice, no?” “Umm..yaah..”, Until the question, I was sleeping on the checklist, but he wakes me up. “Feels nice”, his words started making rounds between the heart and the mind. However, normal, his question stuck in between. He is the one always fascinated with my Solo Traveling and Being a Wanderer.  “Why did he ask such a question?”, I questioned myself. He knows me well and my mindset, my opinions and is aware of the atmosphere around me as well. It took me little time but found out why little birdie asked me this.

However, it is just that my fascination for the City of Lights has increased many fold in the last 24 hours. Paris, New York, or Rio - a corner in our soul is always tempted to define our whole being as a global traveler. Every morning when I see a global map hanging on the wall of my room, this temptation goes wild and weird. Something punches from within and pushes me to pack whatever comes in hand, put on the shoes, and move out of the breathing graveyard. But you know what, this blood rush often makes you forget things that are essential for you while you pull your backpack on your shoulders. When I was made to jump on a bus heading towards Sunauli on the way to Kathmandu , I realized a couple of things I could have packed.   Being a girl traveler, it is essential to have a list of things prepared well in advance to ensure you do not forget a single thing that could th
