My days are fairly boring. It is the same old drill every single day. Wake up, get dressed, head to the office, work, come back home exhausted, dine and sleep. When did I become a slave to this endless cycle of routine and monotony, I do not know but sure enough I realised I needed to get away from this life for a few days. For the sake of my sanity.
I am a foodie and a traveller soul inherently so to fulfil both my wishes, I chose a destination that would make the trip worthwhile. Being a vegetarian, the choice of a place also needs to go through some stringent checks. I zeroed in on Rajasthan eventually because it would be a perfect place to visit during winters.
The sand dunes of Jaisalmer, the alluring fort city of Kumbalgarh, the sprawling city of soaking blue Jodhpur, the holy city of Ajmer and the vibrant city of Pushkar. Rajasthan offered me nirvana of the soul and I was transported to another realm. The authentic Rajasthani food had me hooked from the day I set foot in the land of Thar. The photographer in me that went nascent due to the overworked corporate life I live, awoke with a vengeance. I had the most fun finding magnificent, breath-taking frames at every place I visited.
This trip being a solo trip gave me ample opportunity to reconnect with myself, find some perspective in life and get back to the day-to-day with rejuvenated energy. I urge you to take a solo trip once every year if you can, or at least once in your lifetime just when you feel that life is crushing you with responsibilities. You will discover new places, new cuisines and most importantly, you will rediscover the fire within you.
