Drabble - Wanderer

“Is there something wrong between you two”, the concern in Mum’s voice almost made me rethink the decision. But Dad’s approval strengthened it. He knew I was a dreamer, just like him.

“There’s nothing wrong Mom.”
“Then why? Can’t believe he agreed to this!”, she said staring at my husband.
 “How will you manage alone?”, she whispered.

I didn’t know how to answer that, for I myself wasn’t sure.

***************

A week later, among the ancient mysterious ruins, I opened my list and triumphantly ticked Machu Picchu. Next stop – Kilimanjaro.


For me, the greatest love of all was - travelling alone.

Drabble is a 100 word Fiction

  12. I was going to ask if this is based on a true experience as well...but saw your response to the first comment. Travelling alone is the best! I am going on a solo road trip in May down the south coast. So looking forward to that! Having said that, I am enjoying travelling in general --- Machu Pichu is something we are thinking about for 2016... :D
