‘Take only memories, leave only footprints.’ That’s what I believed too. But having traveled to 15 countries solo, the thought of sharing my journeys and memories with someone dawned upon me. I finally decided to get married. With marriage, came along this crazy idea of traveling 20 countries for our honeymoon. But then as they say, doing something for real is way tougher than just the mere thought of it.
I was almost on the verge of giving up on the idea thinking about all the responsibilities that our future was eventually bringing along. That's when Neharika held my hand, told me that all our plans will indeed work out and we both could do it, together. That was the moment when we realized our individual transitions from 'Main se Hum'. From planning a trip alone, I now finally had someone to help me decide things and oh, the beauty of planning trips together! I finally felt it all.
From my end, I witnessed a lot of self-changes. During my solo trips, accommodations and travelling did not matter much. I remember immersing myself in photography so much so that I often missed out on having my meals! But with her by my side, it had to be about her comfort. I had to take care of myself so that I could take better care of her. I took my travelling slow and stood by her as she started getting used to life on the road. Just a few early hiccups and she was acing the travel game soon! This one time when I fell sick in Istanbul, Neharika conjured up some medicines and hot soup and I got back better in no time! That was when I figured out how amazing the transition from a single man to one with your beloved could actually be.
Two months of planning and documentation, and we pulled off a 5 month trip around the World covering Egypt, Turkey and Europe. They say relationships emerge out stronger if they can stand the test of time. We stood together holding each other’s hands, standing the test of time, stronger than ever before.
And today, we are here and this is our #MainSeHum
