What was that particular moment or trip that made you decide to become a travel writer?

I would say, it was our epic East Coast Road Trip which really inspired me to share our adventures with everyone else. And there began this journey which has been such an amazing experience.

Do you prefer to travel alone or with a travel partner? Why?

I have rarely traveled solo, except for 1-2 day trips to New York City. So, definitely I prefer to travel with my husband, as I feel that it is always more enjoyable to explore new places together. And its more comfortable and easier to plan the trips with someone you know.

What are the top 5 destinations you would recommend?

1. Hampi, India – Surrounded with history, it takes you back in time.

2. Savannah, Georgia – Charming river front city.

3. Grand Canyon, Arizona – Most unbelievable views.

4. New Orleans, Louisiana – Fun, interesting and a beautiful city.

5. New York City – An amazing city to visit, live and work.

How many countries have you been to?

Five countries (that’s not a lot). But surely, we will be adding to it every year.

Do you have a bucket list? If yes, please share it with us!

My bucket list is ever-expanding and currently it includes seeing/experiencing – the Northern Lights, Glaciers in Greenland, Galapagos Islands, Masai Mara National Reserve, Rio de Janeiro Carnival and many-many more.

What is the life of travel writer like?

Busy, fun and inspiring. A travel writer pens down his/her experiences while exploring the world and helps others by inspiring them to travel.

Have you ever been somewhere that was so bad that you couldn’t write about it?

Never, I think every place is unique and has its own character. And I have loved all the places, I have ever visited.

There are probably a lot of people thinking “I want to be a travel writer”. Dare to share some advice with our readers?

Start writing about your experiences and share it with everyone.

Get inspired, Travel and inspire others in their journeys.
