About Solopassport

Solopassport means a passport that travels solo (mostly).

Started in 2015 with a simple idea to encourage women to take a brave step into solo travelling, Solopassport has soared beyond its principal tenet. It has become one of the most established and popular travel blogs on the internet for adventurous solo female traveling.

Solopassport features:

  • Travel guides, from a perspective of solo female traveler.
  • Information on adventurous experiences such as trekking/hiking and scuba diving.
  • Hotel and product reviews.
  • Local community projects such as farm visits.
  • Practical travel tips and information.
  • Mixture of photographs, videos and written content.

Why did I start Solopassport?

Solopassport was created to showcase my solo travel experiences to fellow travellers. Today, this space has become a voice of a ‘Solo Indian Female Traveller’, trying to influence other women travellers to take a step into solo travelling, especially around experiential travelling.

Traveling

Having travelled to 6 continents, 40 countries and counting, I am an avid traveller who has particularly loved scaling the length and breadth of India and Australia as I am blessed to call these two countries my home. Hence, I get excited to talk about both of these countries and have created a lot of content around them.

Why do I love solo traveling?

  • Liberating and educative.
  • Taught me how to be independent and made me adept at handling situations that catch me unawares.
  • Solo travelling to me is therapeutic. Sitting on a seashore and hearing the waves crash on a beautiful, balmy afternoon is meditative bliss for me.
  • It’s also a great way of making friends from different countries and learning about their cultures first-hand.
  • Lastly, Solo travel gives me access to the limitless power of sheer awesomeness! (Okay, a dialogue from Kung Fu panda).

Hiking and trekking

What started as a step towards fitness has now turned into a passion. Every time I trek up a hill and reach the summit, the achievement fills me with vigour and enthusiasm. For someone who can never work out in closed spaces, hiking and trekking are great alternatives for working out at a gym, and this form of exercise comes with a great view.

Today, I am proud to say that I have trekked to the Mount Everest Base Camp and have also completed the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

Scuba diving and Snorkelling

I have always been a water baby and have loved everything about the ocean. After my first dive in Netrani Island in India in 2007 there was no looking back. I am a certified diver and have made it a point to scuba dive in every country after my certification. I am PADI certified Rescue scuba diver and I try to scuba dive once or twice in two months. I have been thinking of taking scuba diving as a potential career path or turning it into an alternate source of income.
