I was born and brought up in Dhule, Maharastra, India. My formative years saw me growing up in Rajasthan, Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh, due to my Dad’s job in Atomic Energy, which took him to various locations.
Maybe this is where I got the travel bug and followed in my Dad’s footsteps?
After graduating from University, I worked in India as an IT professional for nearly 12 years before moving overseas to America. As I advanced in my career, so did my opportunity to work in other countries, such as Australia, the United Kingdom and now in the UAE, so four different continents!
One of my passions is photography. Whenever there’s an opportunity while travelling, my camera gives me a scope to see the world through lenses and capture amazing shots to share.
I also love driving and going on long driving trips; whether it’s a day trip or a week or longer, my desire and enthusiasm to feel the freedom of the unending road is liberating.
Since childhood, travel and transportation have always fascinated me. I was very keen to learn how people travelled from one place to another – whether inter-city, inter-state, inter countries / continents or whether by bus, train, or flight journey. I tried to imagine how their travel experience would have been, which sparked a curiosity to travel myself.
My passion for life is to experience the world’s many wonders, experience different cultures, and grow and learn from them.
Together with my life partner, we are determined to fulfil our dream by going on a two to five-year one-way journey around the world.
I am very grateful to my Mum and Dad for giving me a wonderful childhood, education, and values. The opportunities and the independence they gave me made me more inquisitive and passionate to travel and explore those deep desires. Today I am who I am because of their love, blessings and support.
I believe in working hard but also playing hard. Ultimately, I want to enjoy life, enjoy my work, and seek to fulfil my passions, travelling and exploring the world.
So, “PLAN for the future but, LIVE one day at a time.”
