What prompted you to go on your first journey?
Thanks to an army background and hostel life, I have been traveling since I was a kid. But one trip that changed my outlook on solo travel was my trip to Europe in 2012. I was a bundle of nerves when I went on that trip, but since then, there has been no looking back.
What’s your favorite travel destination?
Japan. I loved it for the unique mix of culture and modernity it offers. I visited it during the autumn season when the whole country was ablaze with autumn foliage.
What’s that one travel gadget you always keep in your backpack?
Camera either in the form of a mobile phone or a DSLR/GoPro.
Do you have a favorite travel book or a travel movie?
Into the Wild for presenting the true essence of travel and finding oneself while travelling to unknown territories.
A piece of advice for all the wanderlust-ERS out there?
Travel is like an addiction and you can never have enough of it. With every travel, you grow as an individual. My only advice would be to travel with an explorer’s open mind and be adaptable. The humbler and grounded you become, the more love you get in return. Also, travel for the love of travel not just for the GRAM.
A travel quote that always inspires you to travel.
Happiness is only real when shared.
