How We Started

It all started with a drink, a shared passion for travel and a burning desire to explore the world.
We were two strangers on our first date talking in lengths about our dreams and getting amazed at how much we were alike. The following few months were spent in planning our wedding and a 3 country honeymoon which turned out to be an impromptu 5 country extravaganza. This was just the beginning, we had gotten the taste of wanderlust. We started getting drifted to a dreamland every time we saw a beautiful destination in articles, social sites, or on television. With that dream, we have traveled to a total of 14 countries together.

Our Weddings

A promise made and a promise kept! Like everything else we have tried our best to live up to.
At our first wedding when a few plans were going wrong, we decided to let things run their course and not let it bother us much...as we would not let this be our last one. We made a promise to celebrate our bond, our love, our connection in a different way every year. And we made it to 4 ceremonies in 4 different countries- India, Seychelles, Vietnam, and Sri Lanka on each of our wedding anniversaries. With many more years of togetherness to come, we hope to keep this fire alive and continue the streak.

Upcoming Plans

Well as they say... Man proposes God disposes.
We are so much looking forward to this year. We don't have a plan yet as by now we know to keep it flexible. Some destinations are on top of our list, it all depends on the air travel policy, we also want to explore more of India this time around, try out workcations, short weekend trips close to home. Traveling with a kid comes with its own sets of challenges and we don't want to overwhelm our son. So our itinerary will be carefully carved around his comfort and safety. This year we will also be focusing more on building our blog page, reaching out to like-minded people, and sharing experiences that we have gathered along the way. So stay with us as we bring you stories from different corners of the world.

A look back at the year that was -2021

2021 was an incredible year filled with new beginnings. We took our first international trip at the beginning of the year with our infant son. We came back with boatloads of memories and learnings of being new parents. The first few months served us well in terms of travel, with February in Mysore and March in Goa. Taking baby steps to make big leaps and slowly and steadily making our son a part of our way of life.

As the bliss of maternity leaves got over and Riya went back to working full time, we planned on making complete use of our work from home option to travel to Uttarakhand and work from the mountains. But as fate would have it, we had to cancel our tickets and all plans due to the 2nd wave.

What came next was difficult. We lost some of our close ones to Covid as we held on to our near and dear ones as tightly as we could. Those few months of hardship taught us how incredible we are as a community. From people reaching out door to door to offering help to people making meals and delivering to those in need, we saw the best of us come forward to stand strong in this situation.

As the rage of Covid started to subside out travel plans started to emerge. For the first time, we did the most impulsive thing ever. We decided to jump on a flight the next day and go explore Agra. No itinerary, no hotels booked, just impromptu. And I must say it was the best feeling ever.

The next few months went on planning and building our studio, something we had dreamt of for a long time. Picking up wall colors to choosing tiles we had a wonderful time transforming our abode from a sketch in the book to reality.

As the year came closer to an end, we were excited to take the last trip and of course, renew our vows. We chose Sri Lanka and planned up a 10-day itinerary. And after a gap year, we did it…we did it again. There could not have been a better ending to the year than standing by the ocean having the breeze caress our faces and us cuddling our son watching the sunset together.

Kolkata – What to look for in the City of Joy

Kolkata is not like any other metro in India. This city is from a different era altogether. Sometimes we felt like time just froze and preserved everything, every memory from my grandparents’ stories. Ancient buildings, some so old that trees have engulfed them, the same yellow ambassador taxis running the streets, old sweetshops previously run by forefathers of the same family, busses with wooden seats and colonial architecture adorns the city. There are also modern elements like cute little cafes, art galleries, sky-rise buildings, and malls that make for a brilliant fusion of both worlds.
