Answers to Lara’s questions!
- What kind of Traveler are you?
Well, I am more of a lazy and laid back solo explorer! Not a trekker or an adventurist, I love to enjoy the little things a place has to offer. I prefer solo traveling as it gives me the opportunity to step out of the comfort zone and indulge with amazing conversations with strangers!
- Which place that you have visited is in your mind for its beauty?
I prefer to travel to naturally beautiful places rather than grand cities. Still out of all the places I have visited recently, my favorite remains Spiti Valley.
- Share one of your best experiences in your trips.
Quite recently on my trip to Spiti valley with my best friend, we missed our bus and boarded a wrong bus. The driver and his conductor were amazing enough to convince the rest of the passengers, take a short detour and wait there for the other bus which would drop us to our destination. Meeting such helpful people when you least expect them is a miracle!

Only 2 so far. India and Bhutan so far, and my favorite is India.

Planning random Solo trips, Staying at basic tents with temperature below zero and almost freezing to death are some of the crazy things I have done till date!

What does the place have to offer in terms of natural beauty and cultural uniqueness!
