About Me There Are No Limitations
All my life (that isn’t much at 30), I’ve been a dreamer. Living in the contemporary, I still follow stars, make music, walk in rain, slide down (not always willingly) hills, watch in awe as flowers bloom, listen to birds’ songs and follow my whims. I wanted to be so many of all the “cool” professions that I was often regarded as a confused child.
One of those “cool” ones was being a pirate!
Roads and words are the two great loves of my life.One makes me wander, while the other brings me home. A world tour that’ll cover all the little hamlets and the biggest cities, the deep, gorgeous valleys and the highest mountains, the greenest jungles and the barest deserts, is my bucket list.
What made me a Travel Blogger?
I wouldn’t take you for a ride by saying that my childhood dream was becoming a Travel Blogger. Back then, nobody, at least in India, had a clue about travel writing or blogging. So, this blog is a result of an unplanned trip to Rajasthan that made me jot down my experiences online. A lot emails from strangers poured in, asking me to plan a trip to India. And thus, with the realisation that great travel content works, I began my journey. Often working late into the nights after winding up office work!
How do I manage my travel expenses?
Okay, I’ve been asked this so many times that I’m writing the answer here. So, first thing, I got my first job when I was 20 and continued working for 7 years in a row. That left me with immense experience and some bits of savings; and also, in a position to get a job anytime I wanted. I try not to travel luxury, and continued working as a freelancer – writing, blogging, selling travel photos, working as a Content Marketing Consultant.

I travel for the love of it; just as some of you love going to pubs, shopping or anything else.
Right now, after travelling for almost 2 years around the country, I’m working as Chief Editor for Happytrips, an initiative of TOI Travel. On weekdays, I write and daydream about travel; on weekends, I travel.
