Before furthering, this post may be interesting only for the people who love travelling or who moved across the borders. Potentially this could be a very long multipage post.
Since 2008, I have constantly been crossing borders of India vigorously for various purposes. In the year 2019, I have been locked down clearly at a fixed location and was forced to move out of the Republic of India [sarcastic]. The age of 29 is really bad to make this move and survive as a solo player. Moving abroad has allowed me to lead a life of adventure and a continuing expat life abroad. Every decision to move overseas is still one of my best, because of all the fantastic things that have happened because of them. Living abroad solo doesn’t seem like a big deal anymore, but it’s easy for me to say that after moving abroad alone, just like it is for all the people who travel alone.
When you move abroad solo, you can be a completely different person to who you were at home. No one knows who you are or what you were like before when you’re living alone in a foreign country. Whether you’re moving abroad apart at 30 or at 18, or even 50, it’s a chance to reinvent yourself or put into place new habits and stick to them. You can eat differently, exercise more, be a different kind of person socially, have different hobbies, wear different clothes, whatever you like. No one knows the old you and no one are there to question the changes or compare you to your old self. I think I’m very different from how I was through school and in some ways university too, and many people I knew then might be surprised if they met me again now!
Often I feel I go to some distant region of the world to be reminded of who I really am…Stripped of your ordinary surroundings, your friends, your daily routines…you are forced into direct experience [which] inevitably makes you aware of who it is that is having the experience. – Michael Crichton
Moving solo can be nerve-wracking at first, especially if you’re more of an introverted person like me, but once you realise you can do it your self-confidence will definitely grow. When you only have yourself to rely on, you’ll realise how strong you are.
