“I was born for the ocean, for the road, and I longed to build my reputation as a fearless nomad, forever roaming the country with a suitcase and my guitar.

Sanhita Baruah
“With a few more days to hold on to, some of us are walking on a tight rope, ready to fall but we know not on which side we want to drown ourselves.
On one side there is freedom and the desire to be this carefree, a little irresponsible, a little selfish, a little too thrifty, with some mismanagement, two broken cellphones, one broken laptop, some lost valuables but a heart unbroken and recently found.
On the other side awaits luxury and responsibility amidst some smog, some corruption, some people dear to us, some love, some misunderstandings, some too-many-people suffocation, some fun, some reality you are willing to face, some reality you wish didn't exist.
You don't wanna go back but there is nothing much left here to be for.
You wanna go back but you know once you're back you're gonna miss this time, this place, this feeling terribly.
You're a nobody here yet everything in some memorable times,
You're somebody there holding on to not be a nobody.
I had been living in the moment but today my wallet hardly made a sound as it dropped on the floor.
"Nothing much left here to be for," it said.”
Sanhita Baruah

“Until recently, it was considered that only losers, who obviously have zero friends in the whole wide world, are forced by their wretched fate to drag themselves alone along the paths of the planet. Today, traveling solo is perceived as a more normal phenomenon, one that we recommend you practice at least once a year.”
Maria Angelova

“If you tell yourself that you need more riding experience, more mechanical prowess, more tools, a better bike, and try to cover every single contingency you might face before setting out for a weekend on the bike by yourself, you'll likely never take a solo trip.”
Tamela Rich, Hit The Road: A Woman's Guide to Solo Motorcycle Touring

Gina Greenlee
“Feeling lonely? Wish you had a special someone to help fill the void? Reconsider your definition of romance, reconnect to your passions and be swept away.”
Gina Greenlee, Postcards and Pearls: Life Lessons from Solo Moments on the Road

Charlotte Eriksson
“I always pictured it a grand thing, the moment I would take off. Someone waving long after I was out of sight and some tune playing soft from somewhere I couldn’t see. I pictured it a clear line, some sort of sharp edge between before and after. But there is no such thing. You can take a U-turn where you’re walking on the pavement but people are just on their own ways home, and now you’re in their way. You keep walking against the tide and you think you’re doing something great but really you’re just pissing people off and when you finally get out on the open field where no directions exist, you find yourself lonely, not free, just a big, vast lonely world that surrounds you and you can go anywhere you please but suddenly you don’t want to go anywhere at all. You just want to go home. Back to your people.”
Charlotte Eriksson, Everything Changed When I Forgave Myself: growing up is a wonderful thing to do
