The Hunt For Matilda

India is very well connected by trains (in fact one of the best train networks in the world), state transport buses and rickshaws. But when it was time to decide how I would be travelling the country, I wanted something that would give me the freedom to take any road I want whenever I wanted.

A two wheeler was an obvious choice but the idea of travelling with luggage didn’t appeal to me. Then there is the risk factor that comes with a bike along with all the coolness and adventure. After looking into various four wheeler options I decided that I wanted a Bolero. A 3 day trip in a friends Bolero to Manipal in March 2013 confirmed my choice.

The Salt That Makes Chicken Tastes Better!

What The Indonesian Trip Did To My Untold Fears

I am scared of many things. I am scared of heights for instance. And I follow by the philosophy, If you are scared of something, don’t run away from it, Face it. And it works every time.

I bet you know the obvious reason for my trip to Indonesia, but the idea of a foreign travel was in my mind since the Feb of 2010 when a friend of mine went to Malaysia for a week’s visit and he said its not that expensive. I was afraid of foreign travel.

  • Foreign travels are expensive.
  • You have to do an air travel, and airports have security checks. I have heard of airport security holding back people for no reason. (In fact, a friend of my dad was held at some airport in the middle east for over a week).
  • I never actually completed the passport application (I have some confusing with my address, different house names); wrong passport details would end me up in trouble.

This is for me. For those moments when I dont know what to do

You could be Bill Gates, or you could be the President of America, accept it, there are things that you cannot change, things that you have no say in, many things.

Recently, I had been forced to accept some hard realities. As one of my best buddies say, I am a dangerously optimistic person. I could close my eyes to realities even when everything is falling apart. So this was new to me. Guess what? I survived.
