Born, brought up & living in India and travelling the world.
One of the very few Indian solo women backpackers if there are any. If you dare to be one, let’s meet & rock.
SOLO is a big term for Indians, especially women. They do not step out alone and no, here, I do not mean work related outings of a few privileged ones. And if you add ‘backpacker‘ to that ‘Solo‘, it’s totally unheard of.
A few things to my credit includes my blog being featured in Asian Traveller, my articles have been used in a Japanese short movie and in a few schools in USA as course curriculum. My recipe for international backpackers is the first among the winning recipes and is now a part of Recipe guide of Hostelbookers.com.
I have been invited by Tourism boards/ministries of a few countries as their guest…. to start with it was from Malaysia to speak in their first International Travel Blogger’s conference and award at Kuala Lumpur.
I am the first Indian Travel Blogger to be invited by Tourism Bureau of Spain to Spain to cover a few of its Heritage cities.
I was recently featured as an intrepid woman traveller with daunting tales in the New Woman Magazine (page 167-168). Besides, I’ve also been mentioned, quoted, featured in various newspapers & magazines.
I am also a bi-lingual travel writer, regularly writing for international magazines & websites.
Traveling is my passion and stress buster; my strength and my weakness too. My idea of traveling is counting number of memories, and not places.
Nothing excites me more than learning, enjoying and relishing life’s simple little pleasures about new places, people and cultures through this poetic travail.
I have travelled to 20+ countries (No, I won’t tell you the exact no., check it here. ) to nurture this passion; yet as eager and excited to travel as a toddler taking his first step. I believe in “सैर कर दुनिया की ग़ालिब, ज़िंदगानी फिर कहाँ ….”.
A good human being and a funny, freaky creature. These are just a few of the words that describe me.
The main reason for bragging writing here is to get in touch with like-minded wandering souls, and share information and interests. The more I write, the more this desire soars.
