I went to Kashmir in June this year, for the second time. The first time, I went there along with my wife and this time I traveled solo. The experience I gathered altogether from both the trips is wondrous. But whenever I have been there, never felt like that I am touring in India. Maybe the reasons are situations of Kashmir over the few decades, ambience, people, culture and some other reasons can be there. Probably, I could not connect myself with the place, this can be another reason. However, the local people were so nice to me but sometimes the behavior of the Indian Army was disheartening. I discussed the same with my friends. According to them, I preoccupied with the thought that Hindus are a minority over there that can be the reason. Seriously, I could not come to any conclusion. It’s a fact, it is very difficult to travel solo like me in the entire region and as I have faced so many issues.

My husband, Daniel Weber, and I love to travel. We love discovering new places and have an aversion to crowded touristy spaces. We also have different needs for travel and we are both required to travel a lot for our work. I have loved the outdoors since I was a child and would love to escape to the frozen lakes in our neighbourhood in Ontario for a game of hockey with the guys. My family did not have too much money but we would always find some way to head out for celebrations. My parents were very supportive and respected my decisions. They taught me to take responsibility for my actions. If I made a mistake, they would stand by me but I always knew that I would have to deal with it.
