Hi, I am Pooja. With a degree in engineering and Masters in Finance, I worked in the financial sector for some time until marriage. My life now is an amalgamation of mundane and that of a digital nomad. The meaning of travel to me meant different at different stages of life. During childhood it was about family time and a happy break from school routine, the locales hardly mattered then. During college, the travels used to bring welcome breaks but were also accompanied by thoughts of assignment deadlines.

The travel bug actually hit me after I completed my education and started earning. That’s when a casual conversation with my close friend took us backpacking across South East Asia. It was then I actually started experiencing places than just visiting them. Thus started a zeal to explore to satisfy my wanderlust.

After marriage things just worked out better for me thanks to my equally zealous Hubby. Accompanied by our daughter who is ever ready to get out of home, we often set sails on many interesting (and sometimes crazy) family adventures with dreams to travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us.

Namaste! A passionate traveller at heart and now a blogger as well. Thanks to my merchant navy career, travelling has always been an integral part of my professional life. Eternally fascinated by the World of Travelling especially meeting new people, learning new cultures, experiencing their customs or just trying out some new cuisines. Off late, I’ve been exploring places with my family where my job has not taken me.

So, hopefully you got to know us a bit better now. Thank you for taking out the time to do that. We would love to continue to stay in touch, so please take a few seconds to join our free email newsletter so that you are updated with our new travel memoirs, tips, ideas and resources on our blog, or connect on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or Google+.
