We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.
Being a bachelor or spinster without commitment comes with advantages. First up, you aren’t answerable to anyone. You can go anywhere you want and do anything you like. No one is going to judge you. And even if someone does, you don’t frankly care. Because it’s your life and you are living it (hell yeah!).
One way of truly living your life while you’re still single, is to travel to places you have never been before. This is the ideal time to go out and see what the world has to offer, get to know the unknown and experience the never before experienced. While an international trip can eat into your budget, try an Indian trip and experience the beauty of the country you live in.
Here are 12 amazing destinations to visit in India while you’re still single.
