Today’s post is a little different ⚠️ I recently visited the Chernobyl exclusion zone, the 1986 site of the nuclear reactor explosion that displaced thousands of people and poisoned hundreds more with radiation. Whether or not you should be able to visit such a place is a hotly debated subject. Many fear that even after 30 years, Chernobyl is still to radioactive to visit (when in all reality I was only exposed to the same amount of radiation as in a 1 hour flight 😳). Others consider visiting “disaster tourism”, an industry they are not interested in supporting. I visited Chernobyl due to my interest in abandoned places and to experience how nature had reclaimed this once thriving Utopian city. But I left with so much more. The fear that this happened only 30 years ago and could possibly happen again was overwhelming. Granted we take more safety precautions today at our nuclear plants, but the fact that I live an hour away from one really is eye opening. Also it is hard to hear how 50,000 people left everything behind never to get their old lives back. And how so many lives were lost while trying to contain the radiation from spreading all over Europe. It was a truly deep experience. What are your thoughts on visiting places like this? Do you think “disaster tourism” is necessarily a bad thing? Would you visit Chernobyl? What questions do you have? Please comment below 👇 and see our stories for more photos & info 👍 . . ⚠️ Interested in visiting? I would highly recommend @chernobyltour to take you there. My original tour company canceled on me when I arrived. Thankfully @chernobyltour was available and Ana was a great & knowledgeable guide. . . . #dryfoxco #chernobyl #chernobylzone #chernobyldiaries #chernobylexclusionzone #chernobyltour #chernobyldisaster #chernobylwelcome #ukraine #ukrainetoday #ukraine_insta #ukraine 🇺🇦 #ukrainegram #kievgram #kievtoday #travelukraine #exploreukraine #solofemaletraveler #solobackpacker #digitalnomad #solotravelgirl #aroundtheglobe #passportready #urbanexploration #urbanex #urbex #urbexworld #abandonedplaces #pripyat #newplaces
"Make voyages. Attempt them. There's nothing else.” ~ Tennessee Williams __________________________ Two years after I gifted myself a Royal Enfield on my 28th birthday, I finally took it for a long ride last month. TWO YEARS - It had not even clocked 1000km. I wanted to own an RE, but dreaded taking the 190kg bike out in the traffic 🙄. But there's always a first time. So here I was... On a 600km roadtrip to Mumbai-Nashik-Saputara-Mumbai over three days 😬 __________________________ Next week, I'm hitting the road again. . As is ritual, I will be sending out travel postcards with a personal hand written message from my next destination. Three randomly chosen people will receive a #TravelPostcard . I'm sorry, I can't send a postcard to everyone (I'm on vacay too😋) . I'm leaving the link in my profile bio for you to sign up and send your postal address. . Let's do this then 🤘 _______________________________ 6 days to go 🏊🏖️ . . #mavenvisits @mtdc_official . . #travel #traveller #india #maharashtra #nasik #highway #india_gram #roadtrip #travelgram #instatravel #backpacker #solobackpacker #wanderer #wanderlust #indiaig #cloudporn #cloudstagram #outdoors #maharashtra_ig #indiatravelgram #travelblogger #indiagram #natgeotraveller #india_clicks #indiatravel #india_everyday #girlswhotravel

Solo travel or travel with friends/partner? After 4 days in Hong Kong solo I'm still saying I much prefer to travel with people I love ☺️ As much fun as it has been roaming around completely independently, I just really believe that experiences only mean so much unless they are shared with someone special 🥰 Which do you prefer? And for those who read my last post caption about travelling despite anxiety, you'll be pleased to know that anxiety/panic levels on this trip have been ZERO. I felt so safe all the time - Hong Kong is a fab country to start with if you're travelling alone as a female. • • • • • #traveltalk #travelfriends #solotravel #solofemaletraveler #femaletravelbloggers #femaletravel #girlslovetravel #solobackpacker #solobackpack #vietnamtrip #vietnam #tamcoc #ninhbinh #ninhbinhprovince #travelsoutheastasia #travelasia #lonelyplanetasia #lonelyplanet #worldnomads #girlboss #fearlessgirl #fearlesslyindependent #girlsborntotravel #couragetogrow #exploremore #anxiety #mentalhealthawareness #experienceamazing #darlingescapes

We hardly find what we presume. The most frustrating cause becomes the very cause of rejoice. Adventure is always full of uncertainty, you plan one but you get something else, you are destined for one and land on the other, you prepare for something and face just the opposite. I planned to go for chadar trek with my friends , we almost worked a year to make it happen, it was in our daily topic of conversation to prepare for it. Everything set. And We declared the scheduled dates for the trek. As we were coming close to the dates, changing and rescheduling of dates had become a daily affair for one or other reasons. And for the last cause, but not the least, we finally dropped the plan as my friend had to drop this trip due to personal reasons, that too all of a sudden. . I had only 2 weeks to find out and decide a new trip but most importantly to convince myself for the change. We had this promised each other that if we ever happen to go for chadar we’ll do it only when we both can make it together. I spent sleepless night in surfing the net to find out a new trip and the possible routes to each places. Finally I decided to set up my Solo trip to Spiti, which was in the list to go on this summer. . Here you go, buckle up. Soon after I reached Shimla and then on an overnight HRTC Bus to Kaza with a crazy bunch. . The next morning the sun was rising, the gorgeous mountain ,all had the plan to make the valley beautiful and more divine. As of now when i flash back that morning I felt like yes that was different kind of world and beauty, only those can experience who can climb up the mountain and reach there. . I feel every belief has a root. . Our hearts were filled with beauty and grace, we felt happy and particularly I felt that each one of us had got our own perfect subject by that time, even though Spiti was not in my subject at the beginning, so I would say GOD HAS A DIFFERENT PLAN FOR US. . . . . . . . . . . #indianbackpacker #himachalpradesh #spiti #losar #spitivalley #himgeo #india_ig #photographers_of_india #gopro #colorsofindia #Indianphotography #himalayangeographic #indiapictures #backpackindia #dslrofficial #storyteller #everydayindia

She was powerful, not because she wasn't scared but because she went on so strongly, despite the fear. Life is full of fears. Fear of getting fail in the subject if not studied properly, fear of detained from giving semester exams. Fear of not getting the good job if not secured good marks. Fear of not getting the handsome salary which will not let you have high standard to living. Fear of what answer will give to the parents when compared with neighbours child. Fear of society, fear of people, fear of everything. Why to get scared from anyone? Why not to get taught to follow our heart and do whatever it takes us to smile? Why never anyone asks if you are happy or not? Why everyone asks that what is the salary or in which company you are company? This world has seriously forget the meaning of being alive? Or this rat race is so much important for everyone that they don't even realise that they are merely alive. Everyone get scared from one thing or other. But I urge you to follow your heart, overcome your fear. And you will achieve everything you have ever think of. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #solotraveler #solobackpacker #mountain #himachaltourism #beautifuldestinations #likeforlikes #likeforfollow #cntgiveitashot #storiesfromthehimalayas #himalayangeographic #indiapictures #indiafeature #storyteller #tripotocommunity #streetsofhimalayas #travelstories #highonhimalayas #india_ig #travelbucketlist #writersofinstagram #IAMNikon #indianshutterbugs #travelblogger #incredibleindia #lonelyplanetindia #bose

Indonesia is largely a Muslim country, except in Bali, where Hinduism is prevalent. Bali Hinduism is different than traditional Hinduism and has a fusion of Buddhist and Hindu beliefs. An important belief of the Balinese Hindus is that elements of nature are influenced by spirit. Therefore, offerings (sesajen) made from agriculture products are offered to this spirit. You can see them everywhere outside the stores and restaurants here, like the ones in the last two photos. #balihinduism #baliofferings #discoverindonesia #amberwavesfrom Bali
