Aarya Vora: The solo traveller who will inspire you to go solo!
Solo travelling! Why is this considered as a big milestone? For a long time, solo
travelling was considered to be too outrageous, especially for women.
In the last decade or so, with the advent of different trends in the travel industry – it can be said – has received a facelift. Women have embraced their adventurous side like never before. Paradox had a live session with a very young and passionate person who is
enthusiastic about travelling since her childhood and nowadays has become a
blooming limelight because of her journeys in different parts of the world. She is an Actor, Model, Vlogger, and a Traveller- Aarya Vora.
Aarya Vora, social media star formerly known as Trupti Vora, started her career as a model in Ahmedabad. Graduated from HL College, and have been pursuing her dreams for a couple of years. She starred in multiple platforms: My Friend
Ganesha (lead role), south films like Padaharella Vaysu, Nirdosh and
Tirumandiram, TV Serials such as Devo ke Dev Mahadev, and multiple Gujarati
productions, some of which were successful and moved ahead with about
No doubt this pandemic was troublesome for many of us but was also an opportunity for many to turn their life around. The sultry actress launched her YouTube channel in the times of lockdown with her Vlogs like ‘Mumbai during Lockdown’, ‘Lockdown Shopping’, ‘and Finding love in Lockdown ’,‘ Lockdown Trap ’,‘ Quarantine Effect and Online Marriage’ got immensely popular. OTT and YouTube channels are breakthrough mediums for entertainment for the
people nowadays. So Aarya decided to capture her solo travelling moments and bring out something entertaining for people. “I am hoping to bring quality entertainment and right information for them through my vlogs,” says Aarya. This ambidextrous actress enjoys solo travelling and is in a love with this wonderful world. She has already stepped into exploring cooking, travelling, fashion, dancing on her channel.
Arya’s journey being a travel vlogger left her scrutinizing Udaipur, Amritsar,
Himachal Pradesh, and South Goa in 2020, all she did by taking precautionary actions which were required during these lockdowns. Apart from Indian destinations she has been to Turkey, Ukraine, Dubai, and Singapore.
Let’s get enrolled into her travel journey and know-how, a trip can be scheduled and enjoyed to the fullest.
Q. You are a multifaceted girl with multiple dreams! From a Successful actress to a successful fashion blogger & solo traveller, how has the transition been?
Aarya: It was an amazing experience. My transitions from being a model, actor, business person to a blogger and solo traveller taught me a lot. I always loved solo travelling and I already used to travel from before. I love to travel just by myself and take up challenges. So sooner or later I was going to turn my passion into a profession, and now finally I did it. So I am happy about it.
Q. Being a solo traveller, how do your research and planning take place? What do you think is the most difficult part of planning a solo trip?
Aarya Vora: Doing a solo trip, however, is easier said than done and even more so
when you are doing it for the first time. There are a lot of things – from budget to itinerary – to be planned. Definitely research is very important before I decide to travel. I have to note down all the main points, where to go, how to explore the place, in which hotel I would stay, how to book tickets, transportation to go from one place to another.
Managing everything on your own is somewhere the most difficult part of being a solo traveller. Especially when you are sick you feel very helpless. Talking about budget, two things that determine your solo trip budget to a considerable extent are transportation and accommodation. Accommodation, however, is the trickiest part of all. In every city or small town, you will find luxury establishments as well as budget boarding places. So, be sure where you have to stay before you leave.
Q. What is the best thing about being a solo traveller?
Aarya Vora: I believe you will be free of the term ‘Dependency’. Best thing about being a solo traveller is that you don’t have to depend on anyone. When you’re on vacation alone, the lack of familiar people to interact with forces you to engage much more directly with your surroundings—on where you are rather than who you’re with. Since you have to take care of everything on your own and handle difficult situations on your own, it makes you more independent and brave. Solo travel is an opportunity to discover yourself as you discover the world. You can inject a bit of challenge into your life which might otherwise be on autopilot.
Q. The old saying states that travelling makes the world feel smaller. What do
you think, the world grows beyond expectations or it just shrinks when you travel to the other end of the world?
Aarya: I feel like the world grows. Travel also makes the world feel bigger.
Exponentially. The more you see, the more you realize there is to see. And it
feels like crazy exploring the habitual of any place. I have read a lot of
information about India and everyone would have had an intellectual concept of it. But now I have smelled the hot stench of the streets of Delhi. Got the beautiful experience of loud jangle of the music and admired the way the sun makes the marble of the Taj Mahal glow. Any place I visited is real to me now, in taste, sight, sound, feel and smell. This excites me to explore more, because the world is infinite.
Q. Does traveling make you a better person?
Aarya Vora: The way travelling helps us is unique. It increases self-awareness.
Being more open to others while on our journey, also makes us more open to
ourselves. You learn to embrace the unexpected when things don’t go to plan. As I missed my flight while returning from Canada, anyhow I managed the situation. You learn to trust your instincts and follow your own path with a deep respect for
others. In simple words you become more genuine and a nice human.
Q. Is it hard to become a Solo Traveller? Do you worry about being a solo traveller before setting off?
Aarya Vora: A solo traveler needs to learn many new skills, and among the many skills required, is the talent to take your own pictures for the perfect memoirs. It is not only the places that matter, but your presence in them that makes the difference.
People who have never traveled alone often describe their first solo trip as a
most wonderful experience of life.
Of course, traveling alone has its perils too— There’s the mental hurdles to
overcome. And then there’s also the practical stuff that makes travelling that little bit more difficult when you’re alone. Such as safety concerns, loneliness, and the dreaded single supplement. Also, solo travel might be boring for some, or in certain cases, but to others (like myself), it could be quite fulfilling. Solo travel can be the ultimate in self-indulgence; you can rest when you want and pour it on when you’re feeling ambitious. And there is no one to judge. It’s your own day to salvage or chalk up to a learning experience. You can do exactly what you want to do—all the time.
Q. Is it better to plan out a trip or just leave everything open-ended?
Aarya Vora: Solo travel is a pretty sweet deal. But it can be hefty.
When I’m going to a new place and have a short time-frame, I prefer to plan out some of the bigger things that I want to do, especially if I need to purchase tickets ahead of time…like I did in Ukraine or Dubai. Honestly, planning helps you to sort out the thing you wanted to do. It makes the process easier and the trip, more enjoyable. Flight Tickets, Accommodation, Traveling locations, everything
needed to be sorted for an assured safe journey. Pointing out my life, planning
works best for me and my travel style.
Q. What is your idea of success or your mantra in life?
Aarya Vora: “There is no mantra to achieve anything in life. It’s hard-work and your dreams that make you different from others. For eg: I travel solo, there are a lot of girls who travel solo and I’m not the only one who is doing this. I’m different because I go for experience, do something adventurous and explore unexplored parts of the world.”
Q. What are some common items that travelers bring with them?
Aarya Vora: According to the point of Travellers, we really don’t know what will be needed at what time. So, be ready for the worse.
When it comes to traveling, we are indeed to be practically aware of the items to pack. To avoid any inconvenience on the go, research about the place where you are going. Suppose if it’s a Hill station, then make sure you grab everything to make yourself warm. First Aid and some light snacks.
Q. When you see yourself as a Vlogger and influencer, what does that mean to
Aarya : It fits in as a great responsibility. Being an influencer means people follow you and believe in what you say. At present I’m promoting plenty of big and famous brands. So, I feel it’s my responsibility to count on the Right one for them. Right now the blogging industry is booming and I’m glad to be a part of it and be able to reach out to people. Since our fan followers get influenced by what we post or blog, so whenever I blog or post something I make sure I keep my fan
followers in my mind.
For Aarya, travel is Freedom, Elation and Discovery!
She feels like traveling allows her to grow. In a weird way it gives her permission to be herself. Discover a deeper level within!
