Dear girls of the world, – ‘Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One.’ This is exactly how long it will take for you to press click and book your tickets to confirm the best decision of your life of traveling solo. Don’t worry as I won’t turn this into a cliché – I will not ask you to quit your job, overlook your career, be lost or take up a fancy travel-friendly profession. Honestly, I did none of the above and still ended up traveling on my own terms and finding my true self in between sabbaticals. So I will rather try to make this as REAL as possible…

It always has to be perfect! On a trip, my mood largely depends on how good my coffee was in the morning and hence here is a post about me being a good-coffee-hunter all over the globe.
Malaysia, located in southeast Asia, is split into two parts, separated by a stretch of ocean. The western part shares a border with Thailand, while the eastern part sits on the island of Borneo, which it shares with Indonesia and Brunei. The capital, Kuala Lumpur, is located in the western part. There is so much in Malaysia to explore, from east to west, city to jungle. Until I can go, I can only dream about the reasons I want to.
Traveling solo has always been a dream for me and my trip to Bali not only made that possible but unfolded many chapters of my life, which I was unaware of. It has made me learn and evolve as a more confident individual, made me value the things I possess and helped me earn a lot more respect for my own self.

Before our Iceland trip, I heard that the winter months were not the best time to travel to Iceland because of the short daytime, the capricious weather, and the desolation.

As much as I loved to travel, I needed a good career, a good salary and a good stable lifestyle equally. I like the idea of being a good professional, with a kickass package, but that means it also requires a fair amount of billable work hours and uncompromised commitment. I cant be on the road anymore and live like a nomad, because no matter who tells you what, its not feasible in the long run. Travel cannot provide you a living.

I didn’t know if I was failing at my passion, or was I just doing it wrong? Or was everyone around me overdoing it. And overrating it.
