People asked me how did I can stay with local in rural area bc you know it's really impossible to couchsurf in a place where the local don't even know what the heck is 'Couchsurfing' is 😂😂😂
Actually this is what I called 'spontaneous backpacking'. The other day I supposed to go to Gulmarg, but I was lost in Magam town. Since the sky is nearly getting dark, I just simply asking people I met on the street if there's someone who can give me a shelter for one night. And eventually I met Mr Hussain
But you know what? I ended up staying with them for 3 nights. Haha... I don't know how to describe how kind all of this family members. They treat me well, give me food and comfortable place to sleep, brought me visiting their relative and neighbor, picking up apples in their farm, etc. I really having a good time stayed with them. And I wish I could stay longer, but you know my trip is not about the destination, it's all about the journey. And that's it. I gotta make a move
In my last day before I'm saying farewell to them, aunt Marya crying and said this to me, "don't get so busy on making journey that make you forget to make a life"
Ouch it was deep auntie. I'm speechless. And that's the saddest part of my journey so far. 🙁
