  2. How Quick Decision Can Make Your Best Travel Memories

Has it ever happened that you thought of leaving everything and escape to Goa?

Then why haven’t you done yet!

Okay, I was merely saying.

I often use to give Goa examples because you can relate easily. In fact, How does it sound if I say,

“Has it ever happened that you thought of leaving everything and sit at home?

Absolutely dull and boring, right!

But on a serious tone,

A decision taken in seconds can make your best travel memories.

or

You can likewise say that – Don’t take that much time to think concerning something that seems good to you.

In this article, I will also be sharing my quick decision experience that turned out to be among the best travel memories till now. You will love the stories that had genuinely happened for sure!

Keep Scanning Furthermore!

What did I Mean by Quick Decision in Travel?

A quick decision when something appears, let’s assume in your thoughts, and you have to decide to act upon it at that particular moment.

I believe these example you can easily relate to:

  1. To Goa Go office today or take a leave because the weather is Awesome!
  2. Whether to carry an umbrella along or not because it’s raining heavily outside.
  3. To wear a mask while sitting in a car or not? (Yes)

The decision for these above-stated situations can’t be left for the future. Instead, you have to act upon them quickly.

To Make a Quick Decision in a Situation Examples

In travel, a quick decision could be not only travel-related, but it can be anything.

For e.x – Among the two hotels available, which one to choose both the hotels are costing the same price per day and only one bed left in both. So, you have to make a decision quickly here.

Tricky Situation

Sometimes we fall into tricky situations where taking a long time too would not make us reach any conclusions.

For e.x – You decide, which one shall I choose if I like both Strawberry ice cream and Vanilla ice cream?

In that situations, making decisions in seconds would be the only key that I can imagine.

I hope my point is crystal clear to you.

How to Make Decisions Quickly

I don’t want the article to sound like boring high-grade lectures.

In fact, I had tried to give examples and my views that I believe you can relate to.

To make quick decisions, the only thing you need to do is to listen to your heart.

Taking an example in consideration to that we had just discussed above.

For e.x – I like both Strawberry ice cream and Vanilla ice cream. Therefore, deciding what the heart says would resolve all the mess.

The answer to, How to make a quick decision is preferably different for every individual, and I had expressed my viewpoint in the above-stated line.

That’s sufficient of running on the boundary lines, and let me virtually take you into the field for real-life examples.

I will be further explaining by giving my personal experience of immediate decisions and how that resulted in the best travel memories.

How My Quick Decisions turned out to be the Best Travel Memories!

Following, I had shared my three real-life experiences from quick decisions that became part of the best travel memories.

I am very excited to relive those moments while sharing with you and giggling behind the screen.

So, here’s the first one –

1. The Decision to Go to Chitkul

I would not be describing deeply about the Chitkul in this article. There are separate pieces dedicated to that on the blog!


Articles on Chitkul – 

Delhi to Chitkul Breathtaking Journey on your Mind for 2021?
Firstly, Sojourning in Chitkul was not in my thought when I was planning from Delhi to Chitkul. …

You may have taken several road trips in your entire life each, with your family or friends. …

After Exploring the Kalpa Valley, I had an additional day left.

Upon questioning the locals, they suggested me that, go to Sangla and Chitkul preferably. Both these places are nearby.

The next day morning, the bus took an extended time and reached Sangla at lunchtime.

Please read here thoroughly for better understanding-

I had a belief that Sangla and Chitkul would be just another town nearby, as the locals informed me. So, the plan was to travel backward to Kalpa the same day evening.

As per the plan, I reached Sangla and began searching for places to visit. Local’s of Sangla told that go to Chitkul preferably. The Switzerland of India!

TURNING POINT

It’s already midday, and if I would go to Chitkul, then coming back the same day would become next to impossible.

In a second, I quickly made a decision to go to Chitkul. 

Heard the heart!

Moving forward, I found the same bus that dropped me in Sangla. 

Phew! 

If I had missed that bus, I would have to wait for another 2-3hrs for the next bus to Chitkul. The half-day that was still left would have been wasted!

Lastly, I arrived in Chitkul without the rucksack, explored, and sojourned for a night.

Conclusion from Chitkul

In-between, I had to make a decision to move backward or proceed forward to Chitkul.

The decision of moving ahead to Chitkul had eventually made it the topmost travel memory.

2. The Decision to Spend 30 Days Volunteering in Goa

Volunteering in Goa was a life-changing adventure.

But, to proceed for Volunteering in Goa for 30 odd days was the concern at the beginning.

I was seeking Volunteering in Goa actively.

Following, when got an opportunity. The 30 days duration was non-negotiable. I have to sojourn anyhow if accepted. 

Time to decide!

I instantly decided after considering that getting an opportunity beyond the expected duration is not a usual occurrence.

Go for it!

Exploring and Photographing Goa was amongst the part of the Volunteering work that I agreed upon!

Conclusion from Goa

I eagerly craved to explore Goa. 

Succeeding got a chance that would ultimately minimize the expenses in Goa. Besides, I would get to live in Goa for a month, experience the culture and lifestyle. Furthermore, explore and photograph most importantly.

If I had responded with a NO, then I wouldn’t think having that much knowledge on Goa. Leave apart everything, the spending’s would be on the extreme side if Volunteering was not concerned.

3. The Decision to Photograph the Holi Festival Amidst Corona

It was the year 2020, and everything seems fantastic before Corona announced its arrival.

The spread of COVID gradually picking up pace in India. The people had started considering before coming into large gatherings.

The Holi was around the corner, and we had decided about 1 month back that we would go to photograph. 

To remain on the complete safer side the majority of the people decided that they would not be going to the Mathura Holi.

TURNING POINT

The plan got canceled.

A few days after, I received a call that we would be going to Huranga Holi.

There were a couple of people who had agreed! We would be following the necessary safety measures that all of us promised.

Now, it was up to me whether to go to photograph the Holi event or not.

I replied YES, and it turned out to be a lifetime experience.

Conclusion from Holi

The Mathura Holi was a special event.

The immediate decision to go made the things sorted.

However, the corona fear was in slightly existence, but belief in ourselves had made us proceed forward.

And, Don’t overlook to listen to your heart!

Waaaiiiitt,

It doesn’t imply that in Corona and lockdown circumstances, you came with thought and promptly made a quick decision to go someplace!

Think considering situations and conditions. I hope you can understand!
