Hi! I am Dev, a New Delhi, India, based travel writer/photographer. I’ve been travelling full-time since early 2015, and have created this website to share my experiences and help realise their travel dreams.
Let’s start with my story…
Growing up in a confused and muddled neighbourhood of New Delhi, I was never a big traveller. In fact I was so incurious about travelling, that despite living in Europe for a couple of years, I never found myself fascinated with the idea of exploring that beautiful continent. But in 2014, I went on my first ever solo backpacking trip in Himalayas, where I met a group of backpackers. They were on an indefinite leave to travel the world, and a few weeks of aimless wandering with them opened me to a world of new possibilities. I explored my own country, and its different cultures — in a way I did never before. From that moment on, I was hooked on travel. I came back home, continued my job for next few months, saved most of the money, only to eventually quit, and hit the road forever. And that’s where I’ve been ever since.
My journey started as a budget backpacker. I taught myself how to travel more with less money, to make the money I saved in a full-time job, last for longer. During this time, I worked on this travel blog, so that it starts giving me some returns in some time. One year later, it happened. I now get sponsored FAM trips, as well as make monetize from the blog. I now run this website to share my learning from the road and help others realise their travel dreams — as many have helped me realise mine.
HOW THIS WEBSITE WILL HELP YOU
In two ways actually…
One, as a travel blog where personal travel accounts, destination specific articles, ideal itineraries, and useful travel advice — will help people make their travel decisions. I will be recommending places to stay, experiences to try, that can be experienced on a normal person’s budget and schedule. In other words, I will share my knowledge and help you make your next holiday bigger and better.
And two, I also write about and counsel people on how to start a travel blog from a scratch and make it efficient to a point that it starts giving you return, for you to travel indefinitely.

A LITTLE ABOUT HOW I LIKE TO TRAVEL
I am into adventure, offbeat and slow-travel. I discourage the idea of ticking places off your list, but rather visiting them to understand a place and its culture. And if nothing at all, enjoy the most you can.
Because I go very slow, I often travel alone and make friends on the road. I am all into adventure travel, which is something more than just participating in extreme activities. This adventure travel has helped me break out of my comfort zone, immerse myself in different cultures, challenge my assumptions about foreign lands and understand the world from someone else’s perspective.
I’ll hang out for as long as it feels right, considering my budget and the opportunities I get along the way. I’ll keep sharing my travel experiences and learning with you, as I roam the world. Hopefully, I will inspire you to break your comfort zone and learn from all those great experiences that this world has to offer.
Got questions? Then don’t feel shy to ask questions either by sending an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or commenting on posts.
You can also contact me for babysiting you and teaching you all about travel-blogging that I know. I give personal and group workshops on The Art Of Professional Travel Blogging.
You can also follow me on different social medias to stay connected and follow my journeys more closely.
