Do you like to throw a dart at the map and choose any place to go on a solo trip? Travelling on your own helps us get rid of our inhibitions and help us broaden our minds. Another thing that solo travelling experience entails is the ability to communicate with people from different cultures, eat new cuisines and stay at places with a whole new accommodation style.
Solo travelling does not mean seeing new places with little money, although many solo travellers do it on a shoe string budget. But if you are passionate about having a new experience alone you need to visit Rajasthan and spend time watching colours change, histories formed and embrace a different side every few hundred kilometres.
Exploring a whole new state is an adventure as you have a map on your hand and you have different options of transport at your disposal. You can choose to travel by bike, car, public transport and even hitchhike. The experience will definitely differ in all of the above options and somehow it goes hand in hand with your choice and comfort level.
