Welcome to the journey!
Thanks for stopping by on my travel website.
I have always wanted to travel the world and am now slowly but surely doing that. The travel bug bit me only well into my 30s and I think my move to the US was half the reason why.
Traveling from America is so much easier to do than traveling from India, where I was born and partly raised, or Oman, where I spent most of my formative years.
Of course, I was also a child then and pretty much dependent on my parents so traveling at a whim was not exactly an encouraged behavior. But I now live and work in Los Angeles, CA.
(And spent 10 years before that calling Atlanta, GA, my home) and am enjoying the opportunities to not only be a tourist in my own city but also be a traveler to anywhere across the U.S.
I am still discovering my new home in bits and pieces given how large a country it is, and also welcome any opportunity to visit any part of the globe. This website is a diary of my adventures everywhere.
I hope it inspires you to travel more and be culture curious and conscious in an effort to encourage more cultural awareness and understanding. I hope it helps you plan that next journey to another place.
To make sure you get the latest updates subscribe to the digital magazine for monthly travel news and ideas. Bon voyage :)
