Solo But Not Single

Published

on

This Women’s day, take a solo trip to unwind your senses from the role you play 24 x7, 365 days a year.

Being a Woman is not easy, always known to stretch themselves beyond levels. While donning various hats of a mother, daughter, wife, and sister, it’s also necessary that once in a while we just for once blow that mind away and indulge in something to woo our souls.

It’s a good therapy to fall in love with you. One of the most important fact and the least remembered one.

While the whole world decides to make you happy this ‘Women’s Day’; How about devoting this year to simply loving yourself more?

And what better than a Women’s Day to start with?

8 GOOD REASONS TO TRAVEL SOLO:

Ultimate Freedom

# 1. Ultimate Freedom: Family vacations are more stressful than relaxing as you’re always on toes even though on a holiday. Travelling solo means that you are all by yourself. You don’t have to follow a set itinerary or stick to plan. No one is going to tell you what to do, you can explore and indulge in what you wish to do. Walk the beach when you want to, sit for hours to watch the sunset, enjoy solitude in Jungles or sit in peace in a chapel. It’s the sheer joy of ultimate freedom.

# 2. Choice of Destination: Solo Sojourns offer independence to select the destination of your choice. It’s’ not bounded by children’s preferences or husband’s concept of adventures.

Shopping Time

#3. Unlimited Shopping Time: One of the most important factors, women find least time for. For once you get space & freedom to venture into places of your choice, select, try, go around and come back again to bargain and get the most valuable deal.

#4. Striking Experiences: When you travel alone, there are fewer distractions allowing you to explore nature and environment more explicitly than on family vacations. End result is that one notices beauty of sunshine’s, colors of rainbow, and music of waterfalls. The experiences are overwhelming and the journey becomes memorable.

#5. Self Confidence: With safety a prime concern for women now days, travelling solo teaches you the art of managing your safety and boosting your self-confidence to a different level. Assessing risks and deriving options to waive off those risks is indeed is a rewarding feeling. At the same time, it gives immense gratification to explore one’s strength and hidden capabilities.

Discover Who you are

#6. Discover “Who you are”? We often live in a shell, not that it’s something we should feel bad about. But I suggest you should often explore life outside this shell to know more about your weaknesses and strengths. Most often, women tend to carve themselves under the shadow of their families, the roles that they play unknowingly changes their personalities & traits and they start living and enjoying life that is structured for them. That’s where the essence of individuality is lost. Travelling solo helps in exploring your inner self, your passion and most importantly “Who you are”.

#7. Home can be anywhere: Often solo travels opens up a new dimension in our lives. It releases our inhibitions that we often have on family- group sojourns. Solo journeys waives off the restrictions that we have in experimenting diversity around us. Such Trips are a boon as they help us realise and feel connected instantly with new places, cultures, people and end up discovering that home can be anywhere.

live your life

#8 live your life: Most of our life is confined to set patterns, same set of people, place, culture and habits. Stretching ourselves beyond normalcy is not there in our radar. So travel solo to realize the unexpected and unexplored part of you; expand your soul and live your life to fullest. Going that extra mile alone will help you cherish the fact that “Life begins beyond your comfort zone.”

Tips to Survive Long Travel Journey’s

Published

on

By

Travel is one of the best ways to experience the world. They say travelling the world is akin to living several lifetimes. While most people aren’t pro travelers but one definitely learns with experience.

You make loads of mistakes in fact each escapade is a learning in its own self.  Travel can’t be mastered it’s an ongoing process that comes from missing busses, ignorance about cultures, rituals and countless tiny errors.  So, while you keep learning from your journeys,

here is a small effort to help others by sharing tips that I learnt along my way.

Three tips to help you survive long travel journeys

The recent advances in communication and transportation technologies have even made long-distance travels more comfortable and less tiresome.

Some people crave such experiences, while some would rather stay home than have to endure that 16-hour flight, or the day-long drive across the country. The difference between these two types of people is often their ability to prepare for such journeys. If you struggle to enjoy such long trips, here are a few crucial tips.

Packing

Packing is one of those tedious but necessary elements of any journey. It seems simple enough, but packing well can make or break one’s journey. You don’t want to arrive at the beach only to find that you don’t have a swimming costume with you. Imagine going on a camping trip only to find that there were no batteries packed, or matches for the all-important campfire. It is therefore important to pack well and pack early.

The secret to doing this is to have a checklist prepared. Go through the activities planned for the whole trip and make sure to be well prepared for each thing. Avoid the last-minute rush as it is where most people forget important additions.

Why not pack a bag specifically for the journey to your destination? Think hand luggage on planes, but apply it to whatever mode of travel you’re taking. Pack plenty of snacks if you’re in the car; an audiobook does wonders to pass the time if you’re short on space. Going via ferry? Have a hoodie at hand to stay warm – even when the sun’s shining, it’ll be cold on deck!

Research and Prepare

Spontaneous trips are fun, but there is still no excuse to go to places without planning well. This is especially the case for long-distance destinations. It is important to learn as much as possible about where you’re going. Look at the available hotels, learn about their food and practice some of the local lingo – pleases and thank yous really make a difference, and this is the perfect way to pass time while you’re travelling to your destination. Also check out the general culture, the dos, the don’ts and the expectations.

Before you set off, make sure all devices are fully charged and that there is a backup. Chargers and power banks come in handy during long journeys for those who can’t keep away from their phones and laptops. Stock up on snacks and drinks, especially water and lots of games, especially for the kids.

Emergency

Always expect the best but be ready for the worst. It is essential that at least one trusted person knows where you are at all times. Also, keep your emergency numbers handy in case of any problems such as your car breaking down. This is especially important if you’re travelling with kids! Ensure you have all your medication packed where necessary and that you have taken the required travel vaccinations.

These tips might seem like a handful but they are completely necessary. Following them ensures a smooth enough journey and an enjoyable visit to whatever destination you’ve chosen. Happy holidays!

5 top tips if you’re travelling long term

Published

By

Long-term travel sounds like such a glamorous concept, and it’s probably fine if you have the money to be able to afford it! You need to keep in mind that travel can be an expense, but I think it is also one of the best ways of improving your life and enriching your future. Long-term travel really allows you to find yourself and work on deciding the direction you want to take your life in.

Whether it’s backpacking, couch surfing, or hotel living, long-term travel can provide all sorts of really amazing opportunities, and this is one of the reasons why I love it. It is a great way of seeing more of the world and reality changing your life perspective. So, you want to arm yourself with some of my amazing tips that are going to help you make the most of this experience. Here are five of the best ones I hope will help get you started right now.

1. Choose your destination(s) carefully

I would advise you start by making sure you choose the right sort of destination or destinations for long-term travel. This often involves separating the great places from the not so great, and this can be challenging. Identify the places you want to visit, but also try to make sure you know what you want to do when you’re there.

One of the places I absolutely insist you add to your bucket is the Indian city of Jammu, known locally as the City of Temples. This is a picturesque paradise with plenty of cultural heritage as well. Places like this are ideal to experience on your long-term travel adventures.

2. Budget meticulously

You also need to understand that travelling long-term is going to be expensive, and you’re also going to experience different costs in different cities. This is why it’s so important to sit down and come up with a long-term travel budget. Sure, it might sound boring, but you’ll definitely thank me for it later! You’re going to need to know an approximate figure for how much money you need per day in each place you visit, and this is something you should determine as soon as you can.

3. Start saving now

As well as coming up with a budget, I would also advise you start trying to save as much as possible right now. There are a lot of costs involved in long-term travel, and you need to make sure you have some money saved before you go. This is something you need to make a start on sooner rather than later.

If you’re travelling for a long period of time, you might be able to get a work visa so you can earn money as you travel. However, I would advise not relying on this, and making sure you have plenty of cash as a safety net to help you through your travels.

4. Plan, but don’t overplan

It’s important to make sure you plan your adventure thoroughly, but don’t over plan at the same time. I think it’s important to identify the places that aren’t worth your time so you can focus on those that are.

For example, The Secret Traveller from 1Cover reveals that the Spanish Steps in Rome and the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen rank among the world’s most disappointing tourist attractions. You should avoid these, and focus your energy on seeing the things that are going to change your life. But also leave some space in your schedule, because you want a bit of spontaneity to the trip as well, right?

5. Becoming a packing savant

Urgh, the dreaded packing! Look, I hate packing as much as the next person, and I’m sure you’re no different. But, unfortunately, it’s a necessary evil of travel, especially long-term travel. You need to be more methodical and purposeful with your packing for long-term travel because you’re going to need to fit a lot more in.

One of the best packing tips for long-term travel is to roll your clothes so they take up much less space, and you can fit a lot more stuff in. Plan your packing in advance, and make sure you come up with ideas that are going to help you make this a much less stressful experience.

These are just a few ideas you need to keep in mind if you’re preparing to travel long-term. You’re going to have an adventure and an important experience, and it’s one that you need to make the most of.
