Sandeepa and Chetan's Travel Blog
Life and travel adventures of a married Indian couple.
Welcome to our online home!
We are Sandeepa and Chetan living the life of our dreams
From travelling in a truck to seeing places we still don’t believe exist. From having tea in a tribal’s hut to talking about what we have learnt living this life in TEDx talks and TV interviews. We hope that through our travel stories we inspire you to make your dream into a reality.
In January 2013 we quit our jobs, sold our house and decided to travel the world. We thought we would do a year-long RTW (Round The World) trip. But an unexpected thing happened. We fell in love with the road. Long-term and slow travel became our way of life. Since then we have developed a lifestyle based on around travel.

How travel became the tool of our transformation?
A word on "Responsible Tourism" and what it means to us
Responsible travel has become the guiding principle of our travels. Not just being ecologically sensitive and trying to minimise our footprint but also being culturally and socially sensitive. We know we can not “understand” a place and its people unless we visit.
Stories about responsible travel
It is ALL about the connections we make
After a while, the novelty of travel can cease to amaze. Mountains, beaches, forests can all start to feel the same. A travel experience is more about the people you meet than the places you see or things you do. The connections you make with the people become the lasting memories of the place.
Our travel style
We haven’t stereotyped ourselves in any travel category. Nor do we have a favourite travel style. Road trips to trekking, city travel to rural tourism – we like it all!
Same same but different
You don’t always have to travel to a new place to “feel” something new. Just doing something different in an often visited place can turn out to be a totally new experience.
Being a traveller at home
And sometimes, you don’t even need to travel. Looking at “Home” with the eyes and mind of a traveller can reveal things we often miss out.
Long-term travel isn’t a long holiday. If you are planning to take the plunge (or a break) and wondering what long-term travel feels like, have a look at these stories.
Photography is now an integral part of our travel
