Once the travel bug bites there is no known antidote, and I know that I shall be happily infected until the end of my life
Thinking about how to describe myself seemed so easy until I actually sat down to record my thoughts! Now all those great lines, humorous tales and insightful anecdotes have vanished like this morning’s fog. Now I have to start again and hopefully, not lose your attention in the process.
I was born and raised in a Rajput family in New Delhi, My ancestors once ruled New Delhi the evidence of their times still exist – The Old Fort, Lal Kot and others. One day a few of my ancestors decided to move south east near the banks of the Ganges. I have spent many summers in the mango farms of the family and along the northern side of Chambal valley and have seen these places change with time.
Always ahead in taking initiatives and participating in whatever it was at school gave me a lot of opportunities of representing myself as a performer at many inter school and zonal sports and cultural meets. Started learning roller skating at the age of 7 and was promoted to the school captain at the relay, roller hockey and roller dance championships both at zonal and school levels and that’s when the travel bug bit me. My first tour that I took was in the 6 grade to Goa and since then i thrive for new and challenging experiences. I was introduced to a Legend called Royal Enfiled too early in life and the lust for the beauty of this machine still takes over my head a lot more than it should be.
A graduate in Fashion Merchandising and Retail Management, I started my working career as an editorial intern with a national fashion magazine but that was not my cup of tea. Stared working towards making my passion as a profession and ended up working with a travel start-up (Roads Less Travelled) as a Marketing & Communications Specialist, since then I have worked and lived in almost every region of the country. While in the meantime I have been associated with Center for Social Research as a volunteer coordinator working on women equality in India.
I love to share stories of adventures, nomadic life and happy incidents. I have been a traveler all of my life and thrive for new and challenging experiences. I have an insatiable thirst for experiencing new places and cultures, collecting these over the time my rucksack has been overflowing with loads of memories, stories and pictures and they are getting heavy. I will try to keep the blog updated but it’s a bit hard as I work full time but I’ll try to manage writing and encouraging the good work other travelers are doing and also would love to collaborate with them and meet them over a cup of tea.
