2015 – 2016

With a small job in a big firm, I moved to one of the biggest and busiest cities in the world – Mumbai.

A lot of people tend to assume that it was my job that led me to quit my life in Mumbai and begin this journey but that’s not true. There were a lot of things in my life that were not going right and by right I mean they weren’t making me a happier person. Life in Mumbai sure is difficult (from house hunting to traveling by local trains), but if the other aspects of your life are also not going right then it gets worse.

I could see myself falling in a dark pitch of monotony and sadness. I reached a point where I found no motivation to wake up in the morning. From being a morning person who loved running I turned into a person who struggled to wake up at any hour. I wasn’t even sleeping well, it was just difficult to get up and do anything. I often found myself imagining the end of my life.

Somewhere in this conundrum, on a breakdown call with my mom, I found motivation to change things for better.

Life After Oct 2016

In Oct 2016, very dramatically, I quit my corporate job and left for an adventure to fill my soul with joy again. I’ve been backpacking around Latin America since Nov 2016 and it has been one memorable journey.

Hitchhiking, staying with farmers, dancing with strangers, Hostels, mixed dorms, learning Spanish, drunk night, volunteering, painting the walls, Basically everything that I thought was reserved for a best selling novel.

I’m starting this blog to document my journey which is intended to also help anyone looking for tips to Budget travel, Solo travel, or travel on Indian passport.

Traveling solo is by far the best thing I’ve tried in life and every other amazing thing I’ve done followed.
