This was my first time traveling and trekking solo and I decided to visit Nepal. The thought of travelling solo was daunting at first as I had a list of unsettling questions like will I be safe? Which route should I follow? Who will click my pictures? Also thanks to loosing my cellphone after the first few days of the trip I had no way to contact home or my friends. But those two weeks were the most rewarding experience I had in my life.
I had a deep understanding of the places I visited as I was more immersed in the surrounding.
Being far from home and away from my family and friends made me appreciate people more.
I met people from different countries, backgrounds and culture like the 55 and 65 year old ladies who would jog and run in the mountains while others were struggling to walk or the guy with no nationality and so many more. I learned that you can't always have your way, I learnt to go beyond my limits ,I learnt to be calm,I learnt to respect people irrespective to who that person is, I learned to appreciate life. I learned that patience is of key essence in your life.
Indeed this wasn't just a journey to a distinct land but a journey into one own self.
