Hi! I am Dev, a New Delhi, India, based Indian travel blogger.
I was a journalism student and did my first job as a documentary film-maker in England, before I decided to leave everything behind, relocate and become a full-time Indian travel blogger.
Though it is true that since 2016, I have only been travelling I wasn’t much of a traveller before that.
So how did it happen?
What made me a nomad?
Let’s dig deep into my past a little and find out what forced me to become a full-time…
Indian Travel Blogger
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.
In 2014, I went on my first ever solo backpacking trip in the Himalayas — a Gangotri to Gomukh trek journey — where I met a group of travellers. They were on 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 the next few months, saved most of the money, only to eventually quit my job and travel forever. And that’s how I became a full-time Indian travel blogger.
I now run this blog to share my learning from the road and help others realise their travel dreams. From teaching people how to travel the world without money to how to make money from travel blogging (and thus live my life). I teach them all.

A LITTLE ABOUT HOW I LIKE TO TRAVEL
I look for local and cultural experiences. I do not make itineraries and prefer home-stays. I go to places where tourists seldom pass through and sometimes find abode on an isolated mountain for days. Because I am into slow travel, 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 as a travel blogger, as I’ll 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.
So far, I have been to over 25 countries and have worked with over 50 tourism boards and travel companies including Cathay Pacific Airlines, Germany Tourism, Singapore airlines, Indonesia Tourism, and more.
My journey, as an Indian travel blogger has also been featured in many leading newspapers and inflight magazines.
