It’s about the year 2014 when Sara was planning a trip to the beautiful city of Khajuraho with the group of solo travelers. For a girl who was divorcee and 33 years of age, traveling was the best escape from a bunch of judging people all around. The journey seems to be thrilling as all strangers could connect very well.
Age group was also the same from 25 to 35 years. Sara was all excited but bit nervous too as she just started her solo traveling expedition. Though she preferred to land in Khajuraho airport from Delhi but she decided to explore the road trip. She didn’t consult any travel agents in Delhi for this trip rather she used meetup app.
So group of around 15 odd people that Sara choose began their journey from CP. Almost all were unfamiliar unless they met in the restaurant in Delhi before the trip. Sara was feeling little shy as all guys were trying to hit on her as she was as innocent as a cow and pretty as a flower. On one side, she wanted to be friendly another side there was something that was stopping here.
As their tempo traveler took off there was this guy whom she was exchanging the looks invited her to his seat. Since she was sitting alone she trusted her instincts and joined him over a pint of beer. There was no other comfortable place then the seat next to this handsome stranger named Rohit, for her.
They both had some cozy chat, who in life would know that this will take a different turn after the trip. For Sara, it was just overcoming her divorce blues with this guy. There was another guy Deepak who became an agony aunt who accompanies Sara thought in Metro but to his bad luck, she ignored him.
This gang of young people landed in Khajuraho in 3 star resorts after a tiring journey of 12 hours from Delhi to Khajuraho. While they were chilling out at night on the beats of DJ, Rohit asked Sara to go out for a walk. They both were sloshed and walking holding each other’s arm had some intense conversation. Innocent Sara started falling for him while Rohit was sharing his sad story. He revealed all except that he was married.
Sara & Rohit – Some Good Time
both were declared as a couple in the group as they looked amazing together as
if they were made for each other. In the trip of 5 days, they had time of their
life. Nevertheless, they still were not so close that they forget their limit
and slept with each other. It was just those intimate moment s like a lovey-dovey
that they were sharing. Sara felt nostalgic while her kissing and cuddling time
with Rohit, she recalled her past relationship and also was trying to move on
It was like another courtship and
honeymoon period for her. Before she could know Rohit well trip was over. She
was sad and felt as if life has come to an end. Rohit behaved little weird at
the end of the trip. He hardly bid goodbye in the way she expected. Rather he
was in a hurry to escape as if he has stolen something. Of course, Sara felt cheated as her heart was
a little broken.
Back to Delhi
The story doesn’t end here worst is
yet to come. So all these travelers were connected with what’s app group. They
all were very cool and friendly. Rohit and Sara were in the same group. The
trip was so good that hangover was not over for most of them. They were
desperate to meet each other again. So all of them planned a night out in
Sara was really happy as it was
another chance for her to meet Rohit. She got ready but was not sure whether
Rohit was coming or not. She pinged to check, where he sounded little
tentative. She could sense something fishy about Rohit even since their short
trip was ended. After her constant pursue, Rohit got ready and these strangers
who become friends meet again in Haus Khas.
It was a good night out for the
gang Sara also became quite outgoing and had a ball with the group and Rohit.
All was well unless she discovered after that outing that Rohit was not only
married but had a kid. All her happiness become standstill, after this hangout,
she felt like a victim and went in depression.
Khajuraho Hangover & Aftermath
While she was trying to cope up with her rough phase she got a call from Rohit’s sister. She was surprised and curious at the same time. Sara was told that Rohit is missing from home and they anticipated him to be with her. Her world seems to be shaking as she didn’t know how to handle that. Her fellow travelers asked her to met his family once and convince that she is clueless.
For her it was draining as she was not yet over with the emotional hurt by Rohit, on the top she has to justify something she never did. Since Sara didn’t want to land in any trouble met them and assured them it was not because of her their brother or son has run. She was now worried and wondering where Rohit has gone. The Love story that never began was more painful than any gain now. Sara was reified when she came to know Rohit is back.
Lesson Learnt From Khajuraho Trip
With this trip, Sara took a resolution not to get friendly with strangers and took it as a learning lesson. Above all traveling helped her grow holistically that motivated her to take many such trips in the future. She became smart and cautious traveller who never fell for guys like Rohit .When she looks back now when she’s 38 she still recalls why you must visit Khajuraho and what all you can visit there.
Places to Visit in Khajuraho
For those who don’t know Khajuraho
is the district in Madhya Pradesh and hub of many mythological and religious
temples. This city will certainly connect you with ancient time stories.
To Sum up,Sara since that time feels the exposure she got from her Khajuraho trip was more than compensation to her bad experience with Rohit. Now she has set herself free and become a world traveler.
If you also feel life is not going your ways or getting trapped in mundane routine then it’s time to empower yourself by taking a trip to your dream destination. Would like to know what are the challenges you have in taking a solo trip.
