Thank you “medium” for calculating the reading time, it’s perfectly 4mins.
I’ve a lot to tell, in-fact every single moment I spent out there alone has a lot to tell. I had many good experiences and bad experiences both from locals and the citizens. If I start writing about everything, I might end up making it a Book like that bro asked me to do.
It was terrible
The trip was the best trip I’ve ever had in my life, I loved every single moment of confusion, moments of excitement and happiness meeting new people around me, it was total fun and full of excitement.
My trip was very short, I took my flight to Delhi and from Delhi I travelled to Agra (Taj Mahal) and then I came back to New Delhi and then I flew to Bangalore and then back to Kochi.
COK → DEL → Agra → DEL → BLR → COK
I spent around 4–5 days in total and I visited almost most of the monuments including Taj Mahal (that’s a beauty).
Solo trip is strongly recommended, I heard a lot of people asking me whether it was boring to go for a solo trip. I should admit the fact that nothing could beat a solo trip. It’s fun, full of excitement and no body to help you but strangers. Especially I didn’t plan anything seriously, I just had my flight tickets. I didn’t have a package or a travel agent and none of my rooms were booked, so it was like my time alone with my own decisions.
I met a lot of strangers, in fact I spend my entire day in New delhi with my Korean friend Derek. Meeting strangers and taking decisions without even knowing the place or situation is super fun. But there is something more interesting,
They suck big time. I hate monuments (except Taj Mahal). Going to places and visiting those monuments is wow, but they are total waste of time. I skipped few monuments and started looking to meet new people, explore new places and observed lifestyle of people around those areas.
(my) Photography sucks either, I tried to be a photographer but I barely manage to choose 3–4 out of the whole 637 images I took. Bull shit!
Monuments inspires us to make designs, that’s it. May be I can use those designs while I build a website or write a content. It boosts Creativity.
Lot to learn
There’s a lot to learn from every nook. I was confused in Delhi Metro for almost 3 hours and I was looking around like a naked baby. I was totally scared when I saw people following me late midnight. I was freaked out when I saw that bloody Annabelle like doll standing in the garbage without hands staring at me (midnight 2'o clock, nobody was around me, super scared).
But then, I started getting that confidence time by time and I ended up in Bangalore, I was confident as hell. I was so free and calm that I had this feeling of super confidence inside me (call that over-confidence).
I learned bargaining, I learned about mingling with total strangers, I learned the fact that you shouldn’t deal with locals (mostly cheaters), I learned the fact that managing yourself is the most difficult (may be one of the) part of your life and if you could win that, you own the game!
That’s sounds a bit old. Isn’t it?
Just as I mentioned above, it’s very hard to write everything into this blog post. There’s a lot to tell (I mean a lottt) and I’d love to keep that within me, remembering each and every moment is super fun for me and I’d love to go more solo trips. Because solo trips is something beyond words.
Give it a try
You don’t have to travel long distances, flight tickets and rooms are not mandatory, it’s something you should experience. You’ll surely learn more about making decisions. I should thank Google, Uber, OLA Cabs, OYO Rooms, Quora, Free Wifi connections for giving me massive amount of confidence and safety. I just love them, they are changing lots of life’s around the globe.
