I started traveling with my father at the age of 3. Since then, it has become a way of life, a part of my identity & a refuge. I love to travel anywhere & everywhere in the world and write about it. Riding on a reindeer pulled sleigh in Lapland is next on my itch list. When I'm not traveling, you can find sitting on my desk crunching numbers in an investment bank in Delhi. Life mantra is very simple: “I haven’t seen the whole world, but it is definitely on my list!” (Borrowed from Susan Sontag)
