There! In the plane, they sat beside me! What a coincidence. And Mrs Lim looked relieved. She shared that they were heading to Netherlands for the first time, after thinking of going for almost 30 years. In fact, their son would be joining them after the France trip.
[Afternote: They must be so relieved to see their son on arrival as the Paris shooting at Notre Dame]
Mrs Lim was impressed when heard that I planned and travelled solo as she expressed her worry and concern when her son embarked on a solo trip this time. I guess, she became more aware now that this is a growing trend, and is in particular among the younger travellers. On another note, I could empathize with her as my parents would had the same experience when I went to Bhutan on my own.
