Travel Diaries : Prabriti Chhetri

Prabriti Chhetri
Prabriti Chhetri believes life isn’t meant to be lived in one place. Eighteen year old Prabriti Chhetri believes in exploring places and living life to the fullest. This travel junkie loves venturing out and travelling to new places. “Out of all the books in the world, the best stories are found between the pages of a passport
and I haven’t been everywhere but it’s on my list.” says Prabriti. She has been to five countries around Asia and has travelled different places in Nepal.

1. Which has been the best journey you have experienced?
My recent trip to Thailand is the best journey I have experienced so far. That trip made me realize how much I loved the beach, the smell of the salty water, sea breeze on my face and the sound of the waves.
When I was parasailing above the ocean and swimming in the ocean I realized that ocean is my happy place.

2. Do you prefer travelling with friends, family or alone?
I prefer travelling alone, I feel that when I travel alone I explore places deeply and make new friends during the journey because world is full of ‘Friends’ waiting to get to know you.
I think you just visit places when you travel with friends and family but you experience them better when you travel alone.

3. What do you think is the best part about travelling?
I think the best part about travelling is waking up in the morning realizing that you’ll be in a different place tonight. For me, when you travel you step out of the box that you’ve been living in
and learn new things about this world and yourself. When you travel you get a break from your routined life, you meet amazing people from different part of the world and get to hear their fascinating stories.

4. What do you love the most about those places?
Local food, culture and local people!

5. Share any experience you had during travelling you thought was life changing?
I travelled to Mustang couple of years ago and it is one of the most amazing places I’ve travelled to. On my trip to Mustang I met some amazing backpackers who’ve travelled to different continents of the globe and their
fascinating travel stories encouraged me to follow my passion of travelling. Now I prefer to live life passionately, which is dangerous because you never know what might happen next. From their stories, I’ve learned that travel isn’t always pretty, it isn’t always comfortable but that’s okay because the journey changes you and leaves a mark on your memory.
