My solo trip in India reaches the end. Well, I wasn’t totally alone, I was traveling with SpongeBob which turned a lot of moments into fun ones. The looks from the people looking at me like: what the hell? was very funny. I noted not so many Indians know SpongeBob…
Anyway, India has been the most challenging experience in my life. I went feeling much afraid of what could have happened to me and I end this trip very happy for visiting this country alone and being able to make it enjoying it fully. I could have spent bad days if I didn’t decide to give a chance to India to show me how incredible it is.
I made one of my dreams come true- visiting the Taj Mahal, and I was able to volunteer around it. That was definitely one of the best experiences in my life. I saw things I never expected to see, I met incredible people, I learned to like India as it is, and I hope it doesn’t change much as there is no country like this one on earth. I use to say that India is like a different world inside our world.
I don’t like much Delhi, I don’t think it’s a city that will make you fall in love for India.
I loved Agra for my lovely Taj Mahal and my volunteering experience. I would repeat it 100 times. I met so many cool people here. My hosters taught me a lot. Thank you for all the chai.
I loved Varanasi, the city I never searched about. It was the most pleasant surprise I could have. It’s such a unique city. I enjoyed meeting a lot of people here.
Kolkata doesn’t cheer me up so much. It’s a nice city, but the one closest to our European ways, even having nothing to do with it. I prefer places that are the total opposite I’m used to.
But most of all, I conclude that people you meet are the most important part of your trip. Maybe I feel this way about those cities because of it. I have met no one in Delhi or Kolkata.
It was in this country where are my favorite Hostels, it is from this country I have more frightening stories to tell, and the happiest ones either.
I confess I spent really bad moments in India, and some of them I wouldn’t do it the same. They were too scary because of the bad ideas I got in my mind about this fabulous country back from home. I felt the most fear in my life in this country, but that doesn’t prevent me to like India.
If you are a female solo traveler, dare to go. Of course, you need to be careful, dress properly and be cautious, but India is a worthy experience. You will meet A LOT of solo female travelers also. A solo trip to India is not so bad as it might look.
India is the country where you meet the coolest travelers.
Finally, I have to say I love India and I want to go back to visit more cities.
