I am a former travel industry professional and journalist. As an independent content writer with a fascination for travel, I write for this blog apart from publications like Lonely Planet Magazine, Matador, and Moneycontrol.
Travel fascinates me as it mingles unexpected moments with the ordinary ones, granting us a ‘joie de vivre’ – Discovering a pristine beach just because you didn’t follow the route on GPS; Stumbling upon a python inside a tree stump you almost sat on; Or finding the kindness in people when you least expected it.
As a bonus, you have conversations with people of myriad hues and capture not just sights but also glimpses of people’s lives. A few souls, including yours truly, can’t help seeing everything in frames (much like looking through National Geographic’s logo).
Inspired by Charles de Lint’s words ‘Don’t forget—no one else sees the world the way you do, so no one else can tell the stories that you have to tell’, I set about to share what my eye and mind see through posts on this blog. I hope you like the narratives that reveal themselves along the way.
It isn’t about stories alone though. Sharing tips and guides to places I visit, I try to make this blog useful as well. Feel free to comment on the posts and add tips of your own, but please don’t slyly promote your blogs/sites.
I might not be able to post or respond when I’m traveling, so please bear with me. Thanks for reading through and I hope you enjoy the journey each time you visit.
