Hi guys, How are y’all?
As you might have seen I was in Toronto a few days ago. I travelled all by myself. From booking the travel tickets to booking the rooms and having fun experiences there, I did it myself.
Solo travelled for the first in my life. I kinda liked it, but i’d prefer traveling with the people I love lol. I realized the value of people who travelled with me. I enjoyed my company, interacted with a lot of new people, made Instagram friends (if you know what that means) which I am pretty sure wouldn’t do if I’m with someone. Some people love travelling solo coz they feel like they lose themselves in the process and have to do things for others. But I like that more, because when you love the people around, the compromise would’t matter and you become even more happier soul. Trust me, I honestly missed the people every part of my holiday/trip. I did some the self portraits there as well, which y’all can see. Also, I have worked with some of the photographers which I’ll be sharing in my next post.
I honestly do not know how people travel alone. I was so scared and everytime I was walking on the streets I put my heart in my hands. I was constantly making sure I was okay. Every time, I feel sad after the holiday reaching home. But, this time I took a deep breath after seeing me in my room safe and sound. I was happy that I was back home. I think it’s because of how we grew up, I was never sent alone anywhere, but I always hated it. After seeing all the news coming up, I donot have anything to argue with my parents. Especially girls, be careful if you travel alone, make sure to update your family/ friends. Let’s think of our family/ friends who are waiting for us at homes. It’s okay to not party in the late nights. It’s okay to not put up stories to show people you are having a social life. It’s okay to not show people you are at some fancy club dancing with a drink in your hand. It’s okay to not live Instagram life. Let’s not believe in what we see on Instagram everyday. Wake up and see the world. Be yourself. Do not change for the society and put yourself in the bad company.
If I can do it, y’all can do it. If you wanna experience it, well be planned and prepared and have fun.
