Travelling is my passion and in fact, meeting new people is my favourite aspect of travel. I’ve had incredible experiences meeting new people, and I think that I have met my share of good people who have been very kind and helpful to me. Recently, I was on a road trip to the perfect paradise, Ladakh. On my way, I found another fellow traveller, who’s motorbike had been punctured in the middle of nowhere. As a traveller myself, I knew how hard it was to wait for a vehicle under the scorching heat. Therefore, I decided to give the man a free ride on my bike. Initially, he showed some signs which I didn’t recognize clearly .
After passing a few miles, we stopped for a break at a small shop. Since I was a very open-minded person, I decided to interact with him and started inquiring about him. For every question, he either answered in sign language or actions. I was perplexed. Finally, he asked for my mobile number and sent me a message saying that he’s dumb. That was when I realized how foolish I was not to understand his sign language. But then he texted, saying such incidents usually happen with him. He introduced himself as George, and he was a seasonal worker in Alaska who spent half of his time travelling. He was carefree, passionate and loved wandering around. I was astonished when he started describing his travel experiences. He seemed to have gone on more road trips than me. What I liked the most about him was that George didn’t let his disability affect his passion for travelling, and it was one of the best road trips, and he was one of the best travellers I’ve met.
