Who Are We?
We hope that through our travel stories we inspire you to make your dream into a reality.
Sandeepa is an Electronics Engineer who designed circuits and is now the writer for this blog. Chetan worked in digital media for almost 12 years and is now the photographer for this blog. 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 around travel.
How did this happen?
As a trial run for our RTW trip, we spent months travelling in the Himalayas. That’s when we first realised that slow travel was really for us and we loved the uncertainties that come with this kind of travel. On returning back from the Himalayas, we started writing stories from our travels and sharing them across the internet.
Two things happened
Readers started appreciating our travels and stories. They started asking us questions and we enjoyed answering their queries, helping them make their travel plans. Word spread, our readers grew and notable publications like National Geographic and Yahoo Travel took note of our travels. Several publications (See our Media and Features page) wrote about our journey which gave us access to more readers. Soon we were recognised among the top travel bloggers in India.
When we weren’t traveling, we would be thinking about where to go next. The answer to, “So you’re back now?” became a constant, “Only for a while”. We knew then that in our minds – no matter where we were and what we did – we had turned nomads.
