My Questions Answered :
Which is the one place that every traveler should visit and why?
From the places i have traveled so far I would suggest everyone to give a visit to Spiti Valley, Himachal Pradesh, India. The place has everything a traveler needs from beauty, adventure, peace. The place is in the Himalayan range and offers scenic beauty with snow caped peaks.
Hotel, hostel or home stay?
The choice completely depends on the place I am travelling to. For city tours I go for experiencing a different hotel each day and when on a trip in mountain area I prefer camping or home stay.
How do you handle situations when travel itineraries don’t go as planned?
Well I don’t plan much before travelling so as to accept the situations as it comes and its always better then regretting for the travel itineraries don’t go as planned.
