Ever since we’re born till we reach adulthood, we’re taught to be cautious and suspicious, without even knowing it. We’re told not to talk to strangers, not to take any food from them and not to trust them.
In one way, it’s good. You learn to be self-sufficient and not depend on others. But what do you do when you’re traveling alone? As much as you can be self-sufficient and be able to take care of yourself on your own, there always comes a point when you have to talk to a stranger, when you have to ask for help, and when have to trust them.
Such was the case with me when I was on a Solo trip to a remote Village in the foothills of the Himalayas. It was only my seconds solo trip and I was quite nervous, although the excitement of going to the mountains alone took over eventually.
