National Geographic Traveller India | I Got Featured!!!

I’m super excited because I made it into an article by National Geographic Traveller India on solo women travellers. I and 41 other women got to be a part of the article wherein we shared our most exciting solo travel adventures.

What I wrote!

I wrote about my experience solo travelling in Spain and skydiving in Seville. It was definitely one of THE most thrilling experiences of my life.

Such a great start to this week and a perfect gift on International Women’s Day! ❀️

Linking the article incase you’re interested in reading it.

      I was terrified ( fear of heights) but the second we jumped off it all disappeared. I didn’t care about anything else. It was such a thrill. 😊

      So I closed my eyes right when we jumped (fear of heights) but the skydiver with me forced me to open them and it was so much fun and so thrilling. Like I totally forgot that I was free falling. Best experience ever.

      Honestly it’s a little scary the first time but I was interning in a different city and didn’t have any friends around. So I decided to do it. But it was so freeing and exciting! I loved the adrenaline rush I got by doing it all on my own. 😊 I definitely recommend going on one solo trip by yourself. It’s an amazing way to connect with yourself.

    Hello ma’am!
    My name is Komal Shinde and currently am pursuing my Masters in Communication and Journalism.
    Am actually doing research on analyzing the problems female bloggers face while sharing their experiences online through a blog.
    So if I send you a questionnaire would you be interested in a zoomcall regarding the same.
