Something has been bugging me lately…
I have had this project in mind for quite a while now; doing a road trip all around India. I’ve seen many people try it and they’ve done it well, I’ve read inspiring stories but I want to do it for myself.
I just don’t know where to begin! How can I go about planning for this trip? What challenges will I face? How should I go on this trip? There are lots of questions and hardly anyone is there to answer it.
I started off thinking, I would do this trip in my own car starting from my home town and travelling all across India. But then I had another idea of doing it for a charity! Raising awareness of a cause where ever I travel. After thinking about it for a while, I thought why not do it on a bike instead of a car? I mean bikes are pretty interesting right? But then again, I had a different thought, a thought which said, why not do it in the public transport? I love the Indian Railways, I love the buses, why not just use those to travel around? I’ve even thought that if I ever do get to do this, I would do a vlog of some sort so that everyone can come along with me on this ride! I’ve thought a lot but thinking is not doing!
There are so many questions, but the biggest one of them all; will I have the time, money and the courage to do it? I could always take a gap year after I finish university and do this, but would it be too early? If I do it then, would it affect where I was going with my career? And most of all, if you know me, I am a really really shy person – I can’t even hold a conversation with someone I have recently met about anything, I just don’t have the guts and lack those “skills”, and for me to do something remotely similar to this would take a LOT of courage.
I wish to find answers to these questions. As much as I know, this trip may never happen, but its a dream of mine that I want to keep aiming for, keep it as an actual life goal and maybe one day I will achieve it.
