Goa. Goa faces the West and has my favorite time of the day: dusk. But, any place with a beach, really.
Most Exotic Destination Travelled
Udaipur. It is a historic place full of grand palaces and beautiful lakes. The culture alone was so colorful that it made a lasting impression.
On My Bucket List
Iceland because I want to try the hot-spring-baked cake. Japan because I’ve read too many books and travel pieces on it and I am left with a gigantic FOMO.
Travel alone at least once a year, keep quiet about it, don’t post about it, don’t talk about it. Keep the destination, the experience, the joy, the heartache all to yourself. It’s meant only for you and the people you meet along the way, and they will keep your secret.
