To know your best companion –Solitude
Travelling solo makes us realize that there is no other companion better than ourselves. We will find the best from our solitude. The inner peace, which happens when we are alone, brings more comfort and calmness to our mind. We will know more about strengths; our limits and ourselves.

To feel the easiness
Travelling alone makes the planning and execution of the trip easy. You will find it much easier to plan your own; only according to your wishes and life style. Make us realize how simple it is to schedule alone rather than waiting for someone’s holidays or perfect companionship. Moreover, it will help us to enjoy and to learn how to protect ourselves.

To feel beyond comfort zone
Travelling alone makes us leave our comfort zone and feel the freedom. In this moment or next we will be compelled to step out of our comfort area to explore the world alone and that will bring a very huge uplift to your soul. Real life starts when we step out of our comfort zone and this is the best way to feel that happening. Take risks and feel your strength. 

You won’t come back as the same person
Every moment of a journey will change you. You will come back with a bundle of life in your heart and you won’t be the same person when you come back. We will definitely see the positive impact of journey over us after the trip. It is the time to find a new perspectives and possibilities in our world around.

Experience boosts confidence
In a journey you acquire so much of experiences. It will scatter and exhibit so many life stories in front of you and every such story gives a lesson. A solo journey is add-ups of so many such experiences and definitely, it will boost your confidence and belief in yourselves. It empowers our body and soul and makes us brave enough to take risks and not to fear any more.

Meet new people; new languages
If you are ready to mingle, travelling solo is the best way to make friends around the globe. You will feel free and easy to get attached to unknown people. You will try the best to get along with different languages. It will be easier to travel by hitch kicking and find new friendship.

Get inspired and expand the soul
Solo travelling have more ways to inspire. It will expand the inner confidence in us and will make us braver in doing things. There will be so many possibilities to meet real life inspirations from places and people. Definitely, it will help you in gaining yourself and make you believe in your own intuitions.

So get ready! Make your bucket-list ready and do everything alone.
Take a breath and feel the freedom.
Learn from everything and enjoy the lone ride!

Never QUIT!

It was when I worked in Ankleshwar (Gujarat), I met this Calicut born Unni. A person with burden of worries. Failure encountered him in every jobs he tried. Once he said to me.. “I am a failure. I am not able to send at least a penny to my mother from the salary?”

It was on that night, I met him nearby the Ankleshwar Railway Station for the first time.

That Night
He disappeared from our place in the midnight and my mind whispered to me to go in search of him. In the end, I was compelled to believe the truth that he is walking towards his own death. He didn’t win in that part too. He criticized me for that.

“Unni..Take a moment & think. Have you ever thought of your mother? She brought up you till now. Even being a widow, did she ever made you feel the absence of your father? You know well that how she contended to her fate, whole day working in work sites and fields.. It was to make you & your sister happy. If you gonna quit from your life.. who will take care of them?” I wasn’t sure about what I am saying. But I spat out words with the vague knowledge about him.
“Chottu Bhai.. What else I should do? Do you think I forgot my mother & sister?”
“Unni.. You just look at me. I never gained anything from my life till now. A failure in studying too. You already know how I am struggling day night here. I took my life as a thrill. You too try to think so.. You can..This is not the end dear!”
He ran to me and hugged!
Still being a stranger he promised me. “No.. I won’t end my life myself.”

There started our friendship.

After years while I was in Abudhabi, I got a letter.
Sister got married. Mother is fine.
Chottu Bhai.. You are really my brother!

*************************************************************************************
I don’t know whether this is worth a read or worth sharing.. But this is clinging in my heart from the day I heard this.. The Chottu Bhai here is my own brother.. A person who I respect most.. It’s all because of his attitude towards life.. Every time when I meet him, he shares so many funny stories from his 37 years of life.. But when he narrated this, it made a special feeling in my heart.. May be the sole reason is hearing something serious for the first time from someone who always cracks jokes over his life.. I felt this as a message to everyone who is fed up of their life..
Take your life as an adventure.. You gonna love it.. 🙂
Never QUIT!!
