What prompted you to start blogging?

Travel has always been my most favorite thing to do. I was also greatly influenced by Samantha Brown’s Travel Shows growing up. Viewing the world through somebody else’s eyes is always fascinating. As I started traveling, I thought why not give the world a glimpse into my travels. Its also a great way to document my most favorite places & memories.

If you had a time machine, would you travel to the past, future or not bother?

I would travel back to my childhood & relive it again! It was an amazing childhood.

What triggers your muse?

Mother Nature

Do you have a favorite piece of Architectural brilliance?

The Taj Mahal, India.

When does your Mind come to life, Dusk or Dawn?

At my writing desk with a cup of tea in hand, that’s the only place where I can work without a break for hours at a stretch.

Do you prefer music or silence while writing?

I prefer silence

How has blogging benefited you in terms of personal growth?

Its made me more confident in terms of my writing skills. The thing I value most is the love of my readers & my connection with them, its made me more responsible as a blogger to give out quality content.

The Kite Runner – Khalid Hosseni

What do you do when you need to de-stress?

Dear Readers..

Its been almost 7 months since I posted my first post on this blog. 10 blog posts down, and some amazing subscribers later, I think its time I write a bit about myself, so that you get to know me a little better.

Also, I wish to keep this blog interactive and get to know you guys, my readers better.

As for me, I am a 20 something Lawyer from India. I am also a voracious reader & a Yoga lover. I also like meeting new people & learning about different cultures.

I am a lover of Travel stories. Its fun to view the world through someone else’s eyes sometimes. Being transported to someone else’s world.

In my free time, I always find myself reading other people’s blogs. I enjoy it & find it informative at the same time.

More so before taking a trip I find myself reading as many blogs as possible about the destination I am travelling to. I have always found valuable information about what to do, what not to do, unexplored places to see, and other useful travelling pointers which helped me a lot once I landed at my destination.

Being quite a traveler myself, I decided to blog about my getaways as well. Firstly to have my trips documented for myself, my friends and family & also for other travelers , so it can provide them useful pointers should they choose to travel to places I have already been to.

I will be doing a lot of travelling this year. I have already been to Goa, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Nagaon, Korlai so far & next month I will be travelling to Bhutan, Sikkim & more. I have almost declared this my year of travel!

This blog is primarily a travel blog, but ever so often I might also write on other topics that I find of interest. If there is something you want me to write about, do feel free to communicate with me via Twitter or my Facebook page.

Thank you my dear readers for choosing to be with me so far, I hope you will stay with me for all my future adventures as well. I appreciate all of you.

Warm Regards,
