Alone & Adventurous

I am often alone during the Holidays so rather than staying home and feeling lonely, I turn it into an opportunity for adventure. I grew up believing that I could not travel alone. I thought that travelling was something you did with your significant other or family. It was instilled in me by friends, family, and the news that that travelling alone was dangerous. As an Indian woman, this fear was ever present in my mind because of the number of violent attacks, assaults, and rapes that happen in India every year. India is considered to be the most dangerous country in the world for violent crimes against women.*
